When I looked for a photographer, I wanted someone to capture those special moments. A little glance or a stolen kiss. All we have left of our special day are our memories and your breathtaking photos!

- Rome Pretorius

You took a couple who are very camera shy and nervous to be photographed and made us feel at ease. We ended up having so much fun, and best of all, our photos came out wonderfully!

- Justine Helps

What an amazing soul and talented photographer! We hardly realised that we were being photographed, it just felt so natural and real....we will treasure them for life!

  • Hi there!

My name is Wilma and I'm the face behind Wilma Towell Photography. The question I’m asked most often has got to be, “What’s your accent?” I’m a Dutch girl living on South Africa’s South Coast. When im not photographing happy couples or beautiful families, you’ll find me at home, fighting our three dogs for a space on the couch! Oh, and I loooove chocolate but luckily I’m a gym junkie too! If I could dip my whole house in rose-gold I would. Ok, maybe just half of the house 😉. Some fun facts about me that you might not know:

Im the biggest animal lover! Next to caring for our own dogs Charlie, Lilly and Max we often foster puppies for Project Dog and walk the dogs at our local SPCA.

Im a stepmom to two big boys, John (11) and Kyle (16)

I am petrified of hights but have a thing for rooftop photoshoots 🤣

Im a terrible cook but luckily my hubby Byron does pretty much all of the cooking at our house. If it wasnt for him i would probably eat toasted sandwitches for diner every night 🙈 
Thats enough about me tho, I would love to get to know YOU better!

Feel free to get in touch for a shoot or ask me any questions you might have 😊. 📸 credit @laurensetterbergphotography
  • Branding shoot for the lovely Derryn of @hoorayworkshops.

I have been the biggest fan of @derrynschmidt's work for a long time so when this talented lady asked ME to take her pics i was very excited (and scared 😉🤫😱). We chatted over coffee and lunch and made some beaut pics for Derryn's brand along the way.
