My Story

SARAHJANEVR was founded in 2010 by myself, Sarah-Jane Guthrie. It was through studying Photography and Graphic Design at University, that I was asked to photograph a wedding. I was a nervous wreck, but loved that someone trusted in me to capture their day and create memories for years to come. From this day the photography side was born, but I was missing the design process. I offered to design my sisters Wedding Stationary, and she gladly accepted! And that is how it all started!

In April 2017, I married my amazing man, Alex and decided that the business needed a new lease of life. I wanted a shorter name and decided to incorporate my new married name of 'van Ruiswyk' into the business. The business was changed to SARAHJANEVR.
I am operating the businesses separately, but they come under the same umbrella. The only difference is the design and photography pages have different instagram pages. 

I LOVE to travel and have been lucky enough to go to the States twice as well as Canada, Mexico, Fiji and New Zealand.
