About me

Marsel Roothman_0001
I witness and capture love stories for a living, I still cry at most weddings and I absolutely love my job. I would love to document your story.

I’m Marsel Roothman and I’m a full-time wedding and lifestyle photographer living in South Africa. I love taking beautiful photos and documenting emotion. My style can be described as minimalistic, documentary, classic & romantic. To travel and to see the world is at the top of my to-do list and my passport is always ready.

I am lucky to have my lifelong friend and partner Pierre and my family supporting me all the way. On my off weekends you will most probably find me on our farm.
I adore al the people and family I have in my life. I like tea first thing in the morning, my dogs, animals, laughing, travel, giving, art, collecting things, going places. I want to travel the world, own a charming little eatery, photograph cookbooks, take a pottery course and publish a book. Which ever comes first.
