The team behind JC Crafford Photo and Video

JC Crafford Photo and Video is an enthusiastic team of photographers and videographers specialising in wedding photography. We are some of those very few, very fortunate people that lives our passion every day.

Why weddings? Actually not only weddings, we just love to capture love! There is just something very special about two people in love, the chemistry, the romance, the families uniting, the future ahead together, the months of planning for the biggest and most important party of your life, the excitement, the nervousness, happiness, the beauty and glamour of the big day! There is nothing bad about a wedding day, it is just such a privilege to take the photos at the biggest event of somebodies life, the photos and video that they will look at for the rest of their life’s! It is obviously a huge bonus to know that your photographer and videographer at your wedding gets along very well, work well together and plan together to make the biggest day of your life unforgettable with the photos and video that they take.

Our vision is simple. We always want to keep our customers happy. The fact that JC Crafford Photo and Video is already one of the largest photography and videography businesses in South Africa after being in existence for 10 years proofs that we go out of our way to give our customers the perfect combination of a quality product at an affordable price with awesome service. We also want to be on the forefront of discovering and implementing new ideas for wedding photography and videography. We want to make the best of the circumstances and opportunities that is available to us to ensure that our customers have a product that they can show to their friends and family with pride. We do not strife to win prizes and competitions as recognition for our work. Our customers’ satisfaction is our real payday!

We photograph and film weddings because we absolutely LOVE everything about a wedding day. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to capture the biggest day in a couples life. The photos and videos that we take will be treasured and shown to friends and family for years to come. Every couple look at their best on their wedding day, they then also deserve to be portrayed in the best possible way!

Our offices are situated in Garsfontein in Pretoria, Gauteng but we regularly travel all over South Africa to photograph and film weddings.

We also have a VERY SUCCESSFUL STUDIO at our offices where we do photo shoots. Our business has also branched out in a separate entity CRAFFORD PRODUCTIONS, which deals with photography, videography, web and graphic design for businesses.
