Lauren Kim Photographer

I am the one who you hear before you see me as I love to laugh and chat to everyone I meet. I ooo and aaaah over pretty details, puppy’s (especially my favourite dogs Cupar and Jozi) and old couples who still hold hands.

I am a hopeless romantic and love all the soppy details e.g How people met and fell in love, how he proposed and your love story.

I have always been known as the Japanese tourist (taking photographs wherever I go) and after I got married I took a break from my medical job and started taking photographs professionally and I have never looked back.

I am based in Cape Town and it is by far the most wonderful place to find inspiration.

Things I love

– Baking and Cooking

– Markets – my favourite one is the Oranjezicht Farmers Market.

– Walks in the park, up the mountain or along the beach with my family

– Travelling – We have been lucky enough to go some amazing places including Madagascar, Egypt, Scotland, Holland and France, with my favourite to date being PARIS!

– Big band music (Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and those oldies :))

– The smell of the ocean and the feeling of sand between my feet

– Coffee and coffee shops (Coffee should be my second name)

– My favourite movies are Midnight in Paris and Julie and Julia, The exotic Marigold Hotel and August Rush
