We are Donovan and Jo-Anne Myburgh, elopement, wedding and family photographers based in Toronto. We have been capturing moments in time with our cameras for over 10 years. We have journeyed from South Africa to Canada to tell new stories. Shutterstock even dubbed us the South African Wedding Photographer to follow.
From nearly the other side of the world it just so happens that you have crossed our path here. We are grateful for that.
We are a husband and wife team completely engaged in telling love stories from new perspectives. It’s not what we do, but WHY we do it. We know that each love story is so completely its own and that is how we want to capture a wedding day.
Be comfortable, be natural, just be yourself. We want to be as much a fly on the wall as well as an immersed participant in your wedding day so that the full experience can be felt in the photographs.
We’re all about the tear streaked faces, belly deep laughs and little whispers. We love being able to freeze a moment of time, special and meaningful, and let live on not only for you, but for the generations that follow. For them to be able to see a glimpse of who you were as a couple and what mark your love story made in your family.
We strive to capture imagery that is authentic to what the day was, with as much impact and magic as possible.

The name Burghouse represents both our family name with Burgh, but mostly the representation of a bird house. A safe haven for love birds. The bird meaning signifies illumination and empowerment. It ushers in fortune and luck, and it represents purity, elegance, opportunity, and victory. It is the ideal symbol of love, ecstasy, long-term commitment, loyalty and care. We want all these things for the families we photograph.
Burghouse is Donovan and Jo-Anne Myburgh. Together, they bring a uniquely creative style of documentary photography to wedding celebrations all over the world.
Our goal is bold and simple. We want to tell your wedding story through compelling images that transcend wedding photography.
