HI, I'M SHANE MITCHELL...

I’m a Cape Town-born wedding photographer, husband to Charlie and cat dad to Jack. When I’m not behind the camera my obsessions include travel, fitness, riding my longboard and Nandos hot sauce (but then who doesn’t like a little heat with their food, right?). I’ve competed in a few triathlons and as a result have become really good at swallowing the River Thames water – but I wouldn’t recommend this!

My photography career took off eight years ago when I met my wife. She inspired me to leave my 9-5 job and pursue my passion for visual storytelling. This, together with my interest in people, made for the beginning of Shane Mitchell Photography. Now I can honestly say that I have the best job in the world because I LOVE what I do.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE BEACH, BASEBALL CAPS, TIMEPIECES AND MAKING PEOPLE SMILE.

Marrying my wife was the best day of my life and so I know how special your day will be.

My photography style can be best described as wedding photojournalism. This just means I document real moments in a detailed and meaningful way. I also love working with natural light, creative compositions and people. And I’m always very personable, so my couples quickly feel relaxed around me.
