I’m Coba Sophia Uys, the owner & principal photographer of Coba Photography. I am so happy that you found me and because I believe that getting to know my clients is the no.1 way to ensure an awesome experience, I’d love to tell you a little more about me! Here are a few things you should know:

Based in Durbanville, Cape Town, I have been a photographer for the past seven years; I have photographed 150+ weddings, 200+ couples & families, and counting! By God’s grace and guidance, I have found my dream job and passion in life.

When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me enjoying life with my husband (Ruan) and dachshund Lennie (seuntjie). I grew up on a farm on the West Coast (Lambert’s Bay), so I enjoy spending time at the beach. I also love cooking and baking.

After completing two courses at the Cape Town School of Photography in 2009, I started documenting weddings and lifestyle sessions in 2010, and have never looked back since! I love creating beautiful images but more importantly, I love serving couples and families on very important days in their lives!

“I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me” Ps 13:6

 


natural, vibrant and timeless photography with the promise of making you feel at ease.
