We’re the Benadé’s..
We are Pc & Eliska Benadé and we have two fury dog-kiddos called Merlau and Syrah whom we just love to bits. We love spending time at home me making music and Eliska painting, coffee, photography and weekends away in quaint little cottages or camping in the great outdoors.
I started taking photos after selling a guitar and amp and buying a camera. Soon after I started working part-time at the Matie and Kampus Burger (both local student newspapers) and was introduced to wedding photography by Nikki Meyer, who also took our wedding photos. Eliska and I both studied at Stellenbosch University where we also kind of met, but that’s a story for another time. We completed our studies with a doctorate in Microbiology and a masters in Conservation Ecology, respectively, but neither of us had any plans to pursue careers.
Fast forward 10 years and too many weddings to count and we’re still going strong in the wedding industry. We’re a husband and wife team. We love meeting new people, going out and capturing their stories together.
For the past 3 years I’ve been shooting and Eliska editing under Kikitography, a brand run by our friends Skillie & Tehillah, but the time has come for us to once again do our own thing and put what we love out there for the world to see. We have a lot to share.
