About Me

Untitled1My name is Nicolene Day and I have been a professional photographer since 2015.

From taking photos on a school tour to capturing priceless moments of my busy daughter, what had simply been a hobby for many years has now turned into a passion.

I completed a photography course through Nikon SA with Norman Pearman and later completed a diploma short course.

In 2016, with the support of my husband, I decided to officially start Daylight Photography.  ‘Day’ as my surname and ‘light’ as I love capturing moments in natural light.

As a natural light photographer I aim to capture clients' memories to be as real as possible and not posed. 


"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of Loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. It remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything" – Aaron Siskind


Untitled2Based in Johannesburg, I have photographed everything from weddings at beautiful venues in Gauteng, to farm style outdoor weddings in Cullinan. 

2018 was our busiest year as our amazing clients referred friends and family members. Our team grew by three photographers and we foresee more growth later this year as we expand our portfolio range. 

I consider what I do as an art, and an absolute privilege to be present at every event that I photograph. Your event will be no exception.


Each event tells a story – I hope to be the one that tells your story long after the event has ended.


My Warmest Regards,
