HI, I'M KELLY RAE
The creative behind the camera.
My passion for photography is inspired by people, love, travel, design and most of all authentic moments.
I studied photojournalism, then used my photography to travel to Canada, Australia, and Hong Kong. Upon moving back to Cape Town I decided to start up VinylRae Photography after a few friends asked me to photograph their weddings. I quickly realised that I loved what I was doing, and there was a possibility I could make a career out of it.
Every couple and their love story is unique. It's about capturing your energy in a way that truly reflects who you are as a couple.
As a destination wedding and elopement photographer, I love to travel! I seek to capture truly extraordinary photos from the everyday ordinary moments.
My goal is to create the most honest, wildly romantic images possible for my couples. I combine two things very close to my heart, my love of nature and landscape photography, with love. If you are up for an adventure, I'm in x
