More on Sulet
“It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.”
Hi, my name is Sulet – I am a wife, a mother, a photographer and a lover of everything that is beautiful.
My first love is God. He said that as His daughter I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) to be a blessing for others! So here I am.
In 2009 I married the man of my dreams and we are still very much in love! I am also a mother of two beautiful kids, a boy and girl – yes, we are blessed! We love spending quality time together and travelling all over the world as a family, building memories to keep for a lifetime!
Apart from them, I also love photography – a love kindled way back by film cameras and darkroom development. I was captivated by the process of capturing a shot with the perfect composition and lighting, taking the film to the darkroom and playing with different techniques, then waiting with anticipation as the picture became clearer and clearer until I could finally see the end product.
Soon after, film and darkrooms were replaced by my first DSLR camera which only made this journey of photography more fun!
I am a visual person and drawn to anything pretty, so capturing memories and moments in beautiful ways comes naturally. I adore happy faces, laughter, expressions, close-ups, textures, interesting landscapes, good light and basically anything else that relates to photography!
Taking a photograph is like pressing a pause button on life. Realising this taught me to rather take too many photos of one’s loved ones, weddings and children growing up, embracing the moments we have together before it is too late.
It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together and so this beautiful journey begins…
I invite you to share in the joy of the memories I captured and hope to be a blessing to you on your wedding day, your family and any other occasions that are special to you.

a pause button on life.”
What clients say
Sulet is such an incredible person to work with. She is gives off a joy, light and calmness as she works, whilst keeping it professional. She has a high standard of excellence, efficiency, and beauty. My husband and I loved working with her, and she took such a weight off of our shoulders as we planned our wedding. She went out of her way to make us feel relaxed, keep the communication quick and make the wedding of our dreams. I organised my own wedding, so I can definitely say to those planning their own, having Sulet on board makes the process smooth and easy. I also highly recommend her wedding albums – they are the perfect gifts to say thank you to your parents or loved ones, and to keep in your own home too. Thank you Sulet – it was a joy to have you as my wedding photographer.
We had the privilege of having Sulet as the main photographer for both our engagement shoot and wedding day. Sulet has the unique ability to capture raw emotion and the finest detail in a modern, creative and artistic manner. Sulet takes your specific style and preferences into consideration when planning a shoot and when editing the photos. Sulet is innovative, organised, friendly and an absolute joy to work with. We would definitely recommend her to anyone.
We decided to have our wedding in Cape Town, South Africa and as a United Kingdom based couple, a South African groom marrying a Portuguese bride, we knew what we wanted in terms of our special day. We chose Sulet Fourie as our photographer based on the information we could gather from her website and information sent to us by our wedding planner. Having now had the wedding, and received the photographs, we could not be more happy with them. From the point that we had a video call with Sulet well in advance of the big day, we knew we were in safe hands. Sulet took the time to really understand our personalities as a couple and what we wanted from her. She really captured our personalities within the pictures and was absolutely brilliant on the day with the kids. Some brilliant, natural pictures of the your cousins have a really fun time together. She gave us some guidance on timings of the running order too ensuring that the lighting would be perfect for the pictures which really helped. My 7 year old loved imitating Sulet towards the end of the evening, ‘being’ a wedding photographer himself. She is super with children and all the guests. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She was fantastic. Thank you Sulet. You truly captured the day perfectly. x
I had the privilege recently to work with Sulet Fourie at a fundraiser. She was asked to handle the photography at the event. Apart from her professionalism and her being extremely well equipped and prepared for the event, it was also her energy, ambition and positivity that was extremely contagious. We received numerous compliments on how easily approachable and spontaneous Sulet was. I cannot wait to work with her again and I would recommend her to anyone in the industry.
Sulet has an incredibly unique eye for pictures, she sees what the normal eye misses. Her bubbly personality puts you right at ease and this makes you feel so comfortable. Because Sulet has this beautiful gift, it radiates through all your photos as well. She puts in so much effort with every photo she takes. We can honestly say that she literally caught every special moment of our wedding and turned it into our forever memories and we were really blessed with her as our wedding photographer.
We had the honour of having Sulet for both our wedding and engagement shoots. She remains the best decision we made to document a once in a lifetime experience. Even with an inexperienced couple, with a specific vision in mind and no prior experience with the chosen venues; her professional, warm, genuine nature and her standard of excellence meant that we received the most beautiful selection of images. Regardless of the challenge, it is apparent that Sulet is a natural in her art. She sees creative opportunities everywhere, can adapt flawlessly and you’ll end up with images you’ll cherish for the rest of your life. We cannot recommend her enough and we’ll always remain her biggest fans. She deserves every professional accomplishment and we look forward to seeing her continue to capture the most beautiful moments.
I am very privileged to know the super talented Sulet Fourie Photography and decided it was time to book a lifestyle shoot with her. . And wow – not only is she outstanding behind the lens, but SO. GOOD. with the kids!! I must be honest and say that the afternoon started out quite chaotic – understatement! (I still had someone painting the ceiling after some repair work as Sulet was arriving! ). But she was so calm; started connecting with the kids and it felt like a breeze after that. Sulet, baie dankie vir jou rustigheid en geduld! En ook jou spontaniteit. Jy is geseën met ‘n wonderlike talent en ons is mal oor elke foto!! Baie liefde, die Wessies xx
