Having your elopement in Africa can be described best by illustrating what it feels like. It is something you do when you truly, deeply long for an adventure.
A kind of adventure that will stay with you for eternity, one that creeps into your heart, bloodstream and fingerprints. One that will always, always has you come back for more. Because Africa is something you cannot shake or let go of, as she will never let go of you.

When researching a continent that is three times the size of the United States, you might be wondering where on earth to start looking for the best places to elope in Africa. I have photographed elopements in quite a few African countries and have many more on my bucket list. I can show you a personal favourite or we explore new ones!
Every single elopement wedding, is different and yours will be too. There is no 'usual way of doing things', there is no 'typical elopement', as the nature of what I do is a customised experience. But there is a baseline and that's exactly what you will find on this page. From this 'base canvas', we start 'painting'!
This is a baseline - not a rigid package you need to 'fit into'
There are no extra charges for me to get to any destination that can be reached reasonably by road and/or commercial airline. (Air)bnb's, I can also include. If you are planning to elope in an extremely remote or high-end destination, please save me a seat on your transport and a bed to sleep in :)

an elopement is just as important as a big wedding, let's make it damn special
“Most incredible privilege having such a true talent document my special day! Her end product blew us away.
She fits right into every situation and makes a person with a camera feel normal to have around. She is an amazing people’s person and makes everyone her feel comfortable, like you have been friends for years. Her photos capture an experience, we loved the organic nature of documentation.
We could not have asked for a better photographer.”
NADIA + MANO, SOUTH AFRICA
“We had our elopement in South Africa. The first contact with Lotty was directly spot on! Lotty thinks along and is a very open and enthusiastic person! The shoot during the wedding was perfect, we felt very natural and comfortable.
Every time we view the pictures we still can't believe it, how did you manage to do it?! You were the perfect person for our elopement, and we are grateful that you were there on our day! So don’t hesitate to hire Lotty, she gives you something that is priceless!”

“I couldn’t recommend Lotty enough. Not only were the final photographs incredible, she curated the most perfect elopement for my wife and I.
Lotty’s first email alone was enough to know that she was the photographer for us but we just loved how personal and bespoke the whole process was.
She brought experience, knowledge, empathy and a whole lot of fun to the table and we feel very lucky to have had that. If everyone’s experience was like ours, I imagine she has a hell of a lot of new best friends.”

South Africa elopement
“The person behind the camera is filled with grit and her eyes light up at the mention of an adventure. The subsequent photos are beautiful and wonderfully captures the moment and all its details.
We are forever grateful for her go-with-the-flow attitude and enabling us to have our day on our terms. Big thumbs up, you won't regret it.”
Marliet + Cornel, South Africa
South Africa hiking elopement
“We had an elopement session with Lotty and we will treasure the epic photos and epic experience forever.
She planned the whole damn thing - all we had to do was show up with our hiking gear. Our experience spanned over two days; hiking up, shooting at sunset, sleeping on the mountain and shooting again at sunrise in the most incredible location.
The photos perfectly capture who we are as a couple and are my favourite photos of us ever, and Lotty made it effortless.”
