Michelle Joubert-Martin

I photograph weddings, people in love, just people and some other stuff. My style is journalistic, easy-going and relaxed. I’ve never been one for over posed or over styled shoots, I guess I just prefer a more natural look. Why do I shoot weddings? I like good, fun people and being around them on one of their best days. To tell it like it is, and capture all the bits and pieces that finally make up your story. So if you are looking for a photographer to make you look like someone other than yourself or hang your earrings in a tree (so strange, people actually do that) – then I’m probably not the right photographer for you.

On a more personal note; I am a child of the 80’s, happily married. We returned to the beautiful city of Cape Town in November 2011, after spending several years living near Cambridge in the UK. I love to travel – anywhere really, we do our best to escape to wide open spaces as often as possible. I’m a bit of a wine snob and can spend hours in food or flea markets. Basically you can lure me just about anywhere with the promise of antiques or something analog. I love original art, although unless it’s by someone utterly unknown I obviously can’t afford it. I collect film cameras and insist on shooting them all. Also a tiny, tiny bit obsessed with chairs and small cups or bowls… not sure why.

I’ve been shooting quite a bit of film again lately, both in personal projects and on occasion for clients. Film reminds me why I’m in love with photography, it slows me down and makes me more intentional about each shot. So on this new site you’ll find me blogging more about the film projects I’m working on, as well as other random day-to-day goings-on.

Have a look at my portfolio if you like, or visit the blog section of the site – feel free to snoop around and drop me a message. You can also follow me on any of these social channels: TwitterFacebookInstagram or Pinterest.
