About Just Believe
Just Believe Photography captures the magic and wonder of those moments that makes life special.
Owner and lead photographer Marlize completed her formal qualification in professional photography at the New York Institute of Photography, which she followed up with a specialist course in Wedding Photography. She has also done extended online learning, including courses in newborn photography, posing, camera lighting techniques and editing.
Just Believe Photography was established in 2016 and has captured numerous families, newborns and weddings since then. Marlize's passion for photography clearly reflects in the angles and unique, artistic poses she uses, and also in her love for creating whimsical composite images. However, capturing the bond between her clients – whether between proud parents and their newly born baby, or couples in love, is something she’s an expert at, and she does so by focusing on the interaction between her clients.
Marlize has received numerous awards for both wedding and newborn photography. To name few: in 2019 she was both a Local Round Winner as well as a Country Round Winner in the International Wedding Awards and was awarded a Five Star Award by Easy Weddings. In 2020 she became an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography. In 2020 she was once again a Local Round Winner in the International Wedding Awards and received another Five Star award from Easy Weddings. She also received a Bronze Award for Baby Photography in the 2020 Rise International Photography Awards. In 2021 she was named as one of the top 35 Adelaide Wedding Photographers by the editorial team of the Wedding Diaries.
Marlize believe that every person is beautiful and unique, and this is how she want to portray her clients. There are moments in life, like a wedding or the birth of a baby, that should be captured to preserve those precious memories for ever.
