[Who is Pixel Punk?]

A little introduction to the lady behind the lens… The Pixel Punk herself!

This is me… and why I do what I do…

Dee Van Der Merwe… aka Pixel Punk

Oh hey there …

My name is Dee and I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings and elopements for almost 10 years!

I am based in Australia but my job has taken me to the boiling hot desert of Nevada, the freezing cold black sand beaches of Iceland, the busy streets of London, the tallest buildings in Manhattan, and the breathtaking cliffs of Yosemite. I love exploring to find incredible places and I seem to have a super-human fearlessness when armed with my camera!

I absolutely LOVE confetti, I rock a mohawk, and am a sucker for alllll things sequinned!

I consider it the biggest honour that I get to share in Elopements and Weddings and I would be absolutely thrilled to share in yours!

I am a Natural Light photographer and chase the sun…

Over the course of my career, I have shot in both easy and difficult locations and conditions. I consider myself extremely versatile and always work with what I have in front of me. I have a journalistic and editorial approach, capturing detail and emotions.

I absolutely love the privilege of travelling alongside people in their journeys.

Although this is my job and business, it is my passion first. Events are special for sure, but I can honestly say that it’s the people I treasure the most.

I have built really special and close relationships with my clients, and I consider them friends.

If I am photographing your engagement shoot, I hope to be there for your wedding, your first baby, all your other babies after that, your 25th wedding anniversary, and everything in between.
