Elize Mare – Photographer



hi, I’m Elize Mare a Centurion based Photographer covering Wedding Photography, Maternity, Newborn, Lifestyle Photography and Portraiture.

I am a Wife and a Mother, and love my Family. As a Photographer, I strive to be the best in capturing your special memories.

Being a Wedding photographer I can’t wait to capture every bit of planning that went into your special day – from your make-up, dress, the first look between the Couple up to every enjoyable moment of your day.

With your Newborn, it is such a privilege for me to hold your treasured little one in my arms and cuddle them – as a mother I understand the joy your heart feels.
That is why I take the utmost care with your little one during the newborn session.

I must admit that I’m passionate about each and every shoot that I’m booked for.
I am a people’s person, and what-ever your shoot requirements are, I will strive to give you the best of my creative input to capture you those memories you’ll treasure and which will truly be Never Forgotten.

With all that said, I look forward to hearing from you, and to meet with you, thank you for visiting my page!
