Div Maritz is a Cape Town wedding photographer who grew up in the lush and relaxed surrounds of the Garden Route in the Southern Cape. He shoots weddings and events throughout South Africa as well as abroad and is a very popular choice among clientele for his easy going personality and professionalism on shoots. Div Maritz has a unique and different way of shooting weddings which has proven to be in demand with clientele looking for an alternative angle and documentary approach to their story and imagery.
Since he was a young boy, the artistic challenge of being able to tell a story through an image has always intrigued him. The skill of timing and capturing the perfect moment makes his job an exciting challenge of storytelling.
He enjoys shooting in a photo-journalistic and documentary style but honestly, he doesn’t get too hung up on style, prefers to let his images talk for themselves. He focuses on capturing human emotion and feeling, with a specific eye for detail, which he believes is rarely seen in other photographers work, especially wedding photographers. Every image must evoke a feeling, it must captivate you, if not he will not take it. Let the situation be as natural as possible and have fun in the moment.
As for experience, he has been blessed to shoot in destinations around South Africa such as the beautiful Natal Midlands, Durban, East London, Garden Route, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Cape Winelands and Karoo. International destinations include weddings shot in Palma de Mallorca Spain, Toulouse South of France, Mauritius, Perth and Margaret River, Australia.
He has a very outgoing personality with a very mellow outlook on life. Shoots are kept relaxed and fun and to him, that is the perfect recipe for natural imagery.
