Let’s get to know our Speakers:
Topic: Photography & Styling
Jenni Elizabeth is a passionate wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Cape Town, as well as a self-proclaimed hopeless romantic. She has spent the past six years moulding her personal style from behind the lens to access a small window into the unique individuality of every couple’s true-love story. Her approach is the perfect balance between non-invasive, photo journalistic and editorial with a fine eye for details, allowing her to unobtrusively observe the couple for who they truly are in the natural and honest moments that they share.
She has now shot over 120 weddings, four of which were international and has been featured in several bridal blogs and magazines. In 2015 she was voted Best Elite Photographer at the Top (wedding) Vendor Awards. Her refined expertise has allowed Jenni to see the small beauties of life and it is these that she will so accurately be able to convey within your wedding photographs.
Topic: Business & Entrepreneurship

Tegan studied at the Ruth Prowse School of Art and graduated with a diploma in fashion photography in 2011. Since then she’s been freelancing, with a specific focus on fashion, bloggers, online content and events – with a few car shoots on the side to pursue her secret passion for cars. Her photographic style is soft, favours natural light and is aimed to capture real moments rather than creating posed shots. When she’s not shooting, she’s all about exploring her city, looking for new and interesting locations, inspiration or networking with interesting people and trying out new coffee spots.

From starting as a fashion photographer for Sarie, to the head of PR for Media 24, to co-founding many festivals including KKNK, the Knysna Oyster Festival, Aardklop and the Vryfees, the excitement is very far from an end. She recently started a television programme on Via, titled Mooi, visiting some of the most stunning South African homes in an effort to ignite an appreciation for our heritage and all-things beautiful.
