When Robyn and Colin got engaged, it was important to them to find a photographer they connected with, They wanted relaxed, non-posed but beautiful photos of their big day as neither felt really comfortable in front of the camera. So I was delighted when they asked me to work with them!
The location of their e-shoot was important to them, they wanted to use a place that they spend a lot of time at, and with Colin being an avid Fly Fisherman, Kloofzicht was the perfect option. The afternoon was perfect, rain earlier in the day had made the weather cooler, gave us beautiful light and the most dramatic sunset I have ever seen. I love how they are so affectionate, and how much they enjoy each others company. It made working with them so easy, and allowed us to get the most amazing natural photos of the two of them.

Thank you to this amazing couple for choosing me to be part of your big day. It was fabulous working with you both, and I wish you many more years ahead filled with love and happiness!

What happens when a beautiful girl falls and gets injured on top of a koppie and a young man helps her to the hospital? True love! Thats how Chane "fell" for Japie and their love story started.
Having met Chane at an expo, we already had spoken a lot but it was our first time meeting Japie at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens for their E-shoot. He was really nervous, and like most men, not a fan of being on camera. He started relaxing and getting into it especially as he got to kiss his bride to be a lot!
Its hard not to love these two ... they are so down to earth, and so genuine and we enjoyed every minute we spent with them.

Chane and Japie, it was an honour to be part of your big day, I wish you many more years of love and happiness!
Zelna and Hennie are such a special couple to me ... full of life and fun, it was a wonderful experience working with them! They are so much in love, and it comes through so strongly on camera.
Their wedding was set to be a very relaxed and vintage affair, and as they love South Africa and all its history we decided the best setting for their engagement shoot was Reefsteamers. This is one place that I love to work at, there are so many awesome places to photograph, and we walked around admiring the hard work that goes into the restoration of the beautiful old ladies.
As Hennie is also an avid photographer, he took great pleasure in comparing his Canon to my Nikon, and the afternoon was filled with loads of laughs and jokes. Adding to his delight, I pulled out my vintage Canon Film Camera and the two had a few funny selfie moments, and pretended that they were doing their own photoshoot.
This memorable afternoon ended with a spectacular Johannesburg sunset, and then we sat with the Reefsteamers team and waited for Susan, the oldest steam train in the yard to return from her Cullinan trip.
Thank you to the Reefsteamers team who allowed us to use the facility and for being so amazing with your historical knowledge. Thank you also to Makeup by Shandre for Zelna's stunning makeup, and lastly to my tireless assistant Michael for all of the help on the day.
Hennie and Zelna you are both fabulous, and I really wish you all of the happiness in the world as you deserve it. May your love grow and continue to blossom for many years to come!

Quirky and often described as rather eccentric, I am a lover of all things beautiful. Capturing special moments and making my clients look and feel beautiful is what makes me happy!
