About Protea Pixels



We are a husband and wife photography team who are passionate about nature, people and all the pretty things in this world. The finer details in life excite us and we love adventure. We have been together for more than 10 years and both have loved photography from long before then. Recently photography has gone from a hobby for us to an awesome job! We now live our passion.


I (Laneque) am a qualified optometrist by profession but have also done a diploma in wedding planning as well as graphic design. Photography has always been a passion of mine and my late father bought me my first camera. With that film camera I started my photographic journey and over years I have developed my passion into what it is today.


Alan is a qualified mechanical engineer and started his photography passion while still at school with his family’s small “mik en druk” camera. After we started dating he realised how awesome photography is and he developed his skills with me. It has been a journey that we have shared for many years and can hopefully pursue for many more years to come.


Together with the photography business we have also started a custom laser engraving company. We specialise in wedding decor as well as corporate and personalised gifts. We can design and make almost anything wood or perspex related. In future we plan on expanding the business to corporate wear as well.


We have the honour of photographing weddings, portraits, maternity shoots, babies, sport, wildlife, and products as well.


We also organize events. So if you need a helping hand with your wedding or any function, we are your go to people. We can help to make your idea a reality.
