Here are what some of our Clients had to say :

The Empire Team.... I feel the name already says it all... I was fortunate enough to have Jaco and his Team for my Engagement,Mehndi and Wedding day which was a total of 3 days and right from the meeting up and planning they knew exactly how to make it all extremely special for us... If you're looking for spectacular magic on your big day then Empire Photography is the only name you'll ever need... Jaco, Tina & Marie are probably the most friendly and well accommodating team to work with; they truly have outdone our expectations and made our Wedding Pics and Videos beyond Magical.

When we saw photos that Jaco and Marie took, we booked them right away. We love their style that they have. They made our wedding day extra special and we loved working with them. They kept us calm with jokes and had me laughing the whole day. They captured all of the perfect moments and every small detail. They are so professional and we would recommend them to everyone looking for a photographer. Thank you so much Jaco and Marie. You guys are awesome! We are in love with our wedding photos!

Empire Photography kon ons op kort kennisgewing help met ons trou foto's. Ek het ons behoeftes verduidelik en
die fotograwe was op hulle pos, deurentyd baie professioneel. Ons was amper onbewus van hulle teenwoordigeid tydens die seremonie. Daar is 'n paar foto's buite geskiet en ook van die gaste. Detail foto's van die tafels, blomme en koek het verras.
Ons is uiters tevrede met pragtige foto's en puik diens gelewer. Ons kan hulle van harte aanbeveel.  

Lucy en Theunis

Ek en Carel is albei 'connection' mense, dit was ons enigste voorwaarde.
Ons het stalletjie vir stalletjie verby geloop by 'n wedding expo en nêrens kon ons daai konneksie maak met fotograwe nie... En toe kom ons by Jaco en Marie!
Ons het ge-zing, my hart het geweet ons kon hulle vertrou om die spesiale dag vas te vang.
Ons kan nie genoeg dankie sê vir hoe ongelooflik julle vir ons was nie, niks was moeite vir julle nie en het 1000 ekstra myle vir ons geloop.
Jaco, julle is AMAZING

What a lovely couple ; Jaco and Marie. We had such a blessed time on our special day. There was a calmness among the two of them that was so tangible. Capturing our fairytale wedding. Jaco and Marie brought a peaceful and loving presence with them. We laughed, cried and celebrated together. What an experience. We could experience the love of Jesus through the two of them. That was the most special thing the Lord could have blessed us with. We thank the Lord for sending us these two wonderful photographers. May the Lord continue doing His work through them.

Empire Photography is amazing and awesome in every aspect! They are extremely professional and take exceptional photos and videos. They go the extra mile and nothing is too big of a task for them. They are nice, down-to-earth and fun people. They always make you feel comfortable to get the best out of you and a scene. We don’t know where they get all their energy from - they will do the photoshoots with a lot of enthusiasm and smiles on their faces from beginning to end. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer to capture all our beautiful and special memories, because in the end that's all you have left of your special day. We can highly recommend Empire Photography!

Des & Wynand

From the day we met Jaco and Marie, myself and my then fiance knew that we wanted them to be part of our journey. We had an instant connection with them and loved his unique take on photography. They were so friendly and kind and we felt so comfortable with them. On our wedding day, Jaco and his team brought a sense of calmness, humour and magic. All this came as a bonus to their professional nature and amazing talent. Jaco and his team have blessed us with a beautiful collection of priceless memories. We thank them for being a part of our big day.

They made us forget about the stress and all the other million things on our wedding day with their infectious personalities and their love as a couple for one another.

We found out about Jaco through his sister Heidi and Hollywood Costumes; the work he does for Dream Bride; word of mouth and brilliant references from other brides. 
We checked out his facebook page and fell in love with his photography .
We then decided to go for a photoshoot and from there we knew Jaco was the one.
He made us feel right at home with his friendly attitude and his ability to make everyone feel comfortable .
Jaco was defenately the most perfect photographerand he is a truly wonderfull person too 

Nazefa and Faheem Sukhadia
We as a couple would like to take this time to give Empire photography all the credit for making our wedding day on the 13 Sep 2014 memorable!
If you are searching for the best photographer for your special day.... there is a few things you have to make sure of. 

Jaco and Marie passed all the requirements and checklist to a degree of calling them the BEST. 

You dont just need a person that can take good photos and edit them well, which they obviously pass with flying colours but also individuals you can feel comfortable and have fun with....
With their loving and warming hearts towards marriage and people, their spontaneous personalities which doesn't stop laughing and having fun in the moment. 
We were so blessed not only with the best photographers, individuals and beautiful pics but we have so many precious pics of our wedding!!! 
Even the following day after our wedding we received a sneak preview... now that is some serious professionalism! 

Thanks Empire Photography, you guys are awesome and if we can do it all over again... we would again and again choose you. Love you guys

Jessica & Berne'
We we're extremely happy with the photos Jaco and Marie took at our wedding, from Empire Photography. Not only are they dear friends to us, but also very professional photographers when it comes to the shoot. They spend more time shooting at the reception than what was initially discussed, and went through a lot of trouble to make us and our guest happy with the end result. We just want to thank them for the stunning memories! They also took the most beautiful photos our our little boy when he was born. We would strongly recommend Empire Photography to everyone. The experience was lovely. Thanks guys!!
