The lady
behind the lens

Hello! I'm Lizel, the creative mind behind Me & May. 

I'm from Cape Town, South Africa and so grateful to live and work here in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

I like to consider myself an elopement- and family photographer, I am drawn to authenticity and feel happiest and most fulfilled after photographing these types of sessions.


Capturing raw, authentic, emotional, and timeless photographs.


Visual storytelling

Photographs that portray raw emotion, comical moments & laughter


Capturing all these genuine moments

Let's go
have a
grand ol'

If you're looking for emotion-filled photographs, adventures in the middle of nowhere, an unconventional session like going for a surf with your dog, or just a few pretty photos for your wall, I am here for you!

I pour my heart and soul into every session, and can't wait to be part of your journey. 


"I love how our personalities

come through"

WOW, WOW, WOW!!  Jody and I are speechless. 

We absolutely love every single picture. Your work is impeccable and we are so happy that you were our wedding photographer. You've managed to capture so many moments of us that I wasn't aware of, and I love how our personalities come through these pictures. You are amazing Lizel, not only for your photography skills but as a person. You kept Jody and I going when the energy started to dwindle (especially at the engagement shoot hahaha) and you made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Your sense of humor and playfulness made us enjoy every single moment of both shoots. You are wonderful.
