Wendy Thomas

Lead Photographer ( and Team Captain )

Wendy founded Art Photo in 2011 after spending 10 years in the advertising industry and is the creative driving force behind the Art Photo name. Her love for wedding photography, her energetic nature and artistic flare is key to her work. Her unique style can best be described as a mix of editorial and photojournalism with a distinct focus on capturing moments. With nearly 200 weddings under her belt, she has become an accomplished and sort after wedding photographer. In her spare time Wendy enjoys spending time outdoors ( hiking or diving ) and catching up on her favourite super hero movies or planning the next big design or photography project with Ruan :).

Ruan joined the Art Photo team in 2016 with more than 6 years of design experience under his belt. He has spent time overseas in the UK and comes with a wealth of creativity, knowledge and enthusiasm. Ruan has a keen eye for details and is fast becoming an accomplished photographer in his own right. He is also an avid Star Wars fan, has climbed Kilimanjaro and has a huge love for 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 love of art, design and music add to his creative talent and unique outlook of the world.
