Wendy founded Art Photo in 2011 after spending 10 years in the advertising industry and is the creative driving force behind the brand. Her love for wedding photography, her energetic nature and artistic flare is key to her unique style which has a distinct focus on capturing moments. With over 250 weddings under her belt, she has become an accomplished and sought after wedding photographer. In her spare time Wendy enjoys spending time outdoors, catching up on her favourite super hero movies or planning the next big project with Ruan.
Ruan joined the Art Photo team full time in 2016 and subsequently married his partner in crime earlier this year. He comes with more than 6 years of design and photography experience making him a valuable member of the team. He has spent time overseas and comes with a wealth of creativity and knowledge and has a keen eye for details. He is also an avid Star Wars fan, has climbed Kilimanjaro, and has a huge love for diving and Converse sneakers.
Shawn has been shooting weddings for nearly 5 years, first as Wendy’s assistant and then as her second shooter covering over 100 weddings to date. He has learnt all the tricks of the trade so to speak and now shoots as one of Art Photo’s lead photographers. His easy going and fun nature along with his love of art, design and music add to his creative talent and unique outlook through the lens.
Shana joined the Art Photo team in 2017 and will join forces with Shawn to form our second team under the brand. She’s worked in fashion and beauty and has previous photographic and editing experience working with Ruan. Even though Shana is still in training she has showed immense raw talent and is going to be one to watch. We look forward to introducing Shana’s bubbly personality to you at our future weddings.
