This is my story. My name is Barbara van Niekerk, a natural light photographer residing in the beautiful winelands of South Africa. I specialize in wedding & lifestyle photography.

I love my Saviour Jesus Christ and I am eternally grateful to Him for giving me this amazing opportunity to live my dream, being a photographer and trying my best to make a difference.

Photography is a complete experience for me every time I do a shoot, whether it’s capturing a wedding or doing a newborn shoot. I’m passionate about what I do and I strive for excellence.

Then of course there’s the Italy subject which I have to share with you. I’m completely in love with Italy, hence the name Vivente which is the Italian word for ‘living’. Not just any photography, living photography is what I do best, using natural light and capturing moments I see through my camera’s lens. Well that’s enough about me…go on, have a peek at my portfolio – enjoy!
