Anneli Young Photography


The one behind the first response to your e-mail to finally being behind the camera taking your photos.
I grew up in Despatch, Eastern Cape, with my feet firmly on the ground. I married William in 2006 and we farm with citrus and avocados in Hankey, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
I am a musician and studied music at the NMMU in Port Elizabeth. After I got my BMus(music) degree,
I taught for a few years but it was not until I was almost done with my 3 months' maternity leave that I realized I do not want to be that mom, I want to be on the farm with my son.
I resigned from the school I was teaching at and I don't regret that decision for one minute. My best friend got married shortly after,
I have never even thought of being a wedding photographer before then, those were my first wedding photos I ever took, and the rest as they say is history.
It started small with a few photos here and there and later everywhere!
I LOVE what I'm doing now, the fact that my hobby turned into a business makes me feel so blessed.

I also have three beautiful kids, Shawn ( 6 ), Hayley ( 4 ) and Emily ( still new ) and they have filled my life with nothing but happiness.

I am a "real" person, this is my passion. I didn't study to be a photographer, it just happened, I feel it was meant to be.

Thanks for taking the time to read my story and I am looking forward to being a part of yours.
