Meet Roelien

Owner and founder of Worthit Photography

I did not start out with photography as a career, but photos have been the best part of every milestone in my life. I pictured (pun intended) my life turning out different than what it did. And I sure am glad about that. I believe that my career and who I am today is not by accident, but beautifully planned out by God.

Worthit Photography was a dream that started as just a “maybe one day”, but that one day became a someday very quickly. My heart is to make every person that meets me, feel Worth it.

I love going on a journey with my clients. Whether it be planning their special wedding day, thinking about creative outside the box photoshoot ideas and locations or brainstorming about your brand and business, I’m here for all of it. Making you feel like your wedding, photoshoot or brand is just as important to me as it is to you.

Even though I’m based in the West Rand, most of my photoshoots are done in Pretoria and Johannesburg. This doesn’t stop me from travelling to anywhere you are. I love taking photos all over our beautiful country, South Africa.

God creates the beauty. My camera and I are witnesses.

My style and outlook

I strive to make you feel like the best version of yourself when you are in front of my camera. Let’s be honest, most people are uncomfortable when that big lens is on them. But, don’t worry, I’m here to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible and to guide you through every step.

I like a combination of candid, as well as a few nicely posed photos (Don’t worry it will not look or feel stiff. I like creating movement in photos, helping you to feel relaxed and your unique self).

More about me

I live in Krugersdorp with my husband and our two kids. We love binge watching The Rookie and entertaining guests in our home. The silly jokes, puns, love, and coffee is never-ending in this household.
