We are Marno and René Tiemensma, otherwise known as The Tiemensmas, and we’re a husband and wife team based in Pretoria, South Africa.

photos and films that make you feel

this is us

We are a husband and wife duo who loves coffee, travel, golf, The Office, and our doggos, Benji and Lexi. We enjoy exploring new places, long road trips and singing worship songs at the top of our lungs in Marno’s bakkie. We are best friends and business partners.

Capturing unposed, genuine and true to life moments is what we live for. It is truly important for us to tell your story through photo and film as authentically as possible. We want you to relive your most special moments and to feel the emotions all over again, just as they felt on your wedding day.

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

René

Hey! I’m René. The Tiemensmas’ main photographer, second videographer and main photo editor. I am happiest when surrounded by people, good food and music. Marno got me addicted to golf after we got married and we’ve been playing together ever since. I’m an Enneagram 3 who’s easy going and extroverted. I am also a laatlammetjie to two older brothers and an aunt to nine kids – my family is my everything.

Marno is my best friend, husband and business partner and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

MEET YOUR VIDEOGRAPHER

Marno

Whatsup! I’m Marno! The Tiemensmas’ main videographer, second photographer and main video editor. I am obsessed with golf, the bushveld, animals, long road trips, and good food. I am an introverted extrovert who loves spending time in nature. 

I love making those around me happy and are always trying to keep the peace. According to my wife, I’m an Enneagram 9, I’m not sure what that means but is sounds kinda cool.
