Elopements  Small weddings  Adventures

for the dreamers and star gazers


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.


I seek to capture raw, authentic, emotional, and timeless photographs. 


Let's create some magic

Photographs that evoke emotion, that tell a story, express a mood, that make you relive that day all over again, and bring endless joy to you and your family.


Let's go have a grand old time

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. 


Visual storytelling

Our favorite photographs portray raw emotion, passion, comical moments & laughter

"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. THANK YOU!!!
