I recently got married in Haga Haga Hotel and was very impressed wit the quality of the photographs. Working with Red Events & Photography was an amazing experience, Roelien was soo patient and listened to every idea that we had and what we wanted for our special day. Thank you Roelien will be working with you again very soon 😃💕

Professionalism at it's best thank you Roelien the party was amazing the decor was just out of this world you are a wonderful person to work with I will definitely use red events & photography again. It was stunning my guests are still talking about the catering we had a blast thank you.

We used Roelien Parkin/RED Events & Photography for all our wedding planning and such. Roelien Parkin was AMAZING🤩!! From our first meeting, Roelien understood exactly what we wanted and knew exactly how to fit all of our hundreds of ideas into our tiny budget.

Her excitement was always infectious when we had our meetings and she always had a "I'm on top of it" attitude which helped me a whole lot as I was most of the time a nervous wreck😣😱😲🤑. Roelien was a godsend being in complete control with totally dealing with all the things like the venue; dj; photographers;bridal shower and even family situations that I needed help with. What helped us even more was the fact that Roelien Parkin even made us a personal budget leading up to the wedding so we knew exactly how much we needed to spend/save each month without feeling like we missed anything.

If it was not for Roelien Parkin, I would have gone full bridezilla mode long before the wedding even got close but luckily for us Roelz was always there to go full bridezilla on my behalf 😂😂. Even on the wedding day, Roelz was so on top of things that I only found out after the wedding that there was a problem but thanks to her, it was handled even before I could notice anything was out of tune.

My husband Travis Meise and I could not express how much gratitude and love we have for Roelien Parkin❤️. It takes a special type of person to take someone's ideas and dreams and make them a reality. It is because of you Roelien Parkin at RED Events & Photography that we have started our next chapter in our life together like a fairytale🤩.

I would recommend your amazing service and "on top of it" attitude to EVERYONE!!!!

Roelien has become our "go to" photographer for all our family events. She photographed my sister's 40th, my mom's 70th, my dad's 80th and most recently our engagement party on Saturday night. Her photos are natural, spontaneous and she works unobtrusively too. The disc of photos was ready for us on Tuesday - so she is on the ball. Roelien comes highly recommended.

Stunning and professional photographer! Absolutely love all the beautiful memories that you have captured of our Eliannah so far! Also an interactive wedding website made the RSVP's so easy!

Keep up the good work Roelz! I can always rely on you to take beautiful pictures,transform a venue into something spectacular,design the best invitations and make everyone feel relaxed at events. You are such an amazing photographer! You took the most beautiful and creative pictures of me during my pregnancy,such fun pictures at my husband's year end function and such beautiful pictures at my friends stork party.

Stunning Live Event Pictures
Roelien has worked with my band Can of Worms both for band photo shoots and live performance shoots. She has a creative eye and we are always extremely happy with her pictures. She is great at putting you at ease in the moment and ensures that she chooses the right backdrops and lighting to work for the kind of images that you're looking for. Her live photos capture the feeling of the event and often play on colour and lights on stage. I would recommend Red Events & Photography and we will hire Roelien in the future to work on our projects.

Red events has really captured my band, Can of Worms's essence!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work you did on my 70s themed birthday party … your prices are VERY COMPETITIVE which enabled me to have more for my party … you thought of EVERYTHING that needed to be done … which made the planning part a thousand times less stressful … you were there for me every step of the way! My invitations were GORGEOUS, you arrived a hour earlier to help me set up … the party goodies you made were STUNNING and just added to the whole theme and awesome vibe of my party … the salads were DELICIOUS and even though you offered to do my photography for free … you were still on the ball ALL NIGHT … capturing AMAZING moments with each of my guests … I didn’t even know half those pictures were taken until I saw them. My party was a HUGE success and its all thanks to YOU!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND your services to ANYONE - keep up the good work girl!
