About 3’kie’s

Hi there, my name is Driekie Potgieter, I will be your photographer…

In the photo above with me, is my amazing husband, Jaco and our three children Elismé, Paul and Isabeau.

Where did the name 3’kie’s Photography come from? … Well since my name in Afrikaans means “3”, my best friend use to write my name 3kie, and it just stuck.

Coming from a family of artists and photographers it was only natural for me to follow this route.  I studied photography in 1997 at Washington School of Photography in Washington DC, USA.  After 2 years I returned to South Africa and continued studying at CUT, Free State, where after I decided to go work on a cruise ship in Los Angeles as a photographer, which of course was an amazing experience!

I specialize in Weddings, Pregnancy, Newborn, Children, Families, Model portfolios, Events, Corporate functions, Advertisement, Action, etc.

sabiaIn 2010 I won a South African Bridal Award, I received a Gold Award for the Free State




Since 2012, I’ve also been teaching Photography & giving workshops.

I have been a Photographer for almost 20 years and I thank God for giving me the passion for not only Photography but also for people and children.  I aim to capture the moments of life, lives God created…Let His light shine, ‘cause God is Light…Matthew 5:14-16… “Painting memories with light…”

Graphic Designing is also a big passion and goes hand in hand with photography.  Please contact me for your designing needs i.e., business cards, flyers, magazines, websites, wedding invitations, etc.

Enjoy having a look around and may the Lord Bless you with His Love and favour!
