2017-09-21_0039

Where Do I begin with Stace and Dylan? well I have known Dylan for a good few years, some of you may remember the shoot of Dyl with his two Bulldogs, Bayley and Winston, I remember coming home from that shoot filthy, covered in ash from recently burnt veld and exhausted but so excited to start editing…little did I know I would be lucky enough to Photograph Dylan marry the absolute love of his life, Stace.

Sasha- Lee + Zane | Barker Manor Kloof

Facebook_0698

The first time I met Sasha it was about 100 degrees in the loft of a wedding venue, she was doing the makeup of one of my past brides. She had an infectious smile and a sparkle in her eyes. Sasha is the owner of Durban Makeup and is unbelievably talented I am so thankful that our paths crossed as you tend to meet a lot of different vendors being a wedding photographer!

Sasha and Zane known each other for the past 9 years through their mutual best friend, James who happens to be the best man, around 6 years ago Sasha moved into James dads holiday home over the December holidays and Zane had done the same. The 3 of them, fondly known as the Trifecta became inseparable and Sasha, as feminine as she is, very quickly became one of the boys, after a few months sparks began to ignite between Zane and Sasha and their friendship very quickly turned into a strong romance.  From day one their relationship felt different to any other either of them had experienced before which has ultimately led them to this very special day as they became husband and wife.

Bianca + Duncan | Westville Country Club

2017-06-02_0023

Bianca is one of those girls who seems to have it all, she is amazingly bright, drop dead gorgeous, and has the most amazing circle of friends and family who adore her.  Bianca and Duncan met at a chiropractic party that Bianca’s younger sister Carissa (a Chiropractor like Duncan) dragged her to and apparently Duncan thought Bianca was Carissa from behind and draped his arms around her before realising he had the wrong sister but in the end she was the right one! Bianca was the happiest bride I have ever photographed and I absolutely loved capturing the emotion between these two very in love souls.

Katherine + Dale | Audacia Manor

Mr + Mrs Guttenbrunner-325

You may remember Katherine + Dale’s engagement shoot which included their beautiful Sausage dogs , Max and Spencer, if you haven’t seen it you can see it here.
Katherine is one of the most organised people I have ever met, she is one of those brides that I never had to worry about, she had everything organised months in advance and she was always on top of everything, Dale is a business man, a gentleman and is wrapped around Katherine’s finger, these two are the perfect match of elegance and class.

Katherine + Dale Engagement shoot

facebook_0635

We decided to photograph Katherine and Dale’s engagement shoot in Summerveld as Katherine is a horse girl and knows and loves the area, they are getting married next year and I cannot wait for their wedding! Without giving too much away it’s going to be totally opposite to their engagement shoot! Unfortunately Spencer and Max will not be in attendance so we just HAD to include them in the engagement shoot, Spencer and Max are both rescues from The Dachshund Haven, adopting animals is a cause that is so close to my heart (being a rescue mom myself) and they are amazing little dogs…there is nothing better than being able to photograph a couple and their pets. Katherine and Dale you two were so fun to work with and I cannot wait for your wedding! (more…)

Kelly + Raymond – Providence Country Weddings

kelly-ray-427

Kelly and Raymond got married at Providence in the Natal Midlands on a beautiful Spring day, this was a very special wedding for me as every pay day I used to walk into a florist in Kloof and buy my mom flowers, I love flowers, the colours, the smells, the textures so I always felt happy when I stepped inside, but there was one reason I kept going back to this specific florist, the woman who worked there was the nicest most bubbly and beautiful person I had met in a long while as you could guess this was Kelly, We quickly sparked up a friendship and our conversations often revolved around flowers, photography, all things pretty and relationships.

I remember so vividly, the day I walked into Flower fusion and Kelly had this glow about her, one that I had never seen before, she said “Hey my ange! guess what? I met a guy! (insert squeal from me) ahhhh B he is so different” and he was… (more…)

Sharron & Neil – Calderwood in the Midlands

Sharron & Neil-396

Where do I begin with Sharron and Neil? I guess I should start at the beginning 10 years ago, Sharron and Neil found themselves working together and before you think there was a whirlwind romance that came out of the blue let me stop you, what happened was they became friends, the best of friends, Neil always had a crush on Sharron but didn’t make a move and Sharron was completely oblivious to it all, looking back now they both knew it from the beginning…they were meant to be. After a long friendship and a very short “official” relationship Neil (with the help of Sharron’s daughter) popped the question and I’m so glad he did, I have never witness so many guests SO happy that two people were FINALLY getting married.

Marilese & Warren – Tala game reserve

M&W Blog 83

Marilese and Warren are high school sweethearts, she’s pint sized and he’s toweringly tall but the love they both have for one another is infectious, I love nothing more than photographing people that really have fun on their wedding day!

These two decided to get married at Tala Game reserve  and we had such a beautiful day surrounded by winter grasslands and blue skies, and LOTS of laughs, too often I see Brides or Grooms stressing away the day, wanting everything to be perfect instead of just taking in the magic of the day, Marrow and Warren had a perfect day AND loved every minute, soaking in the love and laughter of the day and everyone around them could see that, They have this phenomenal gift of making each other crack up laughing so easily and it’s a rare, (more…)

Bernha & Tys – Bella Vista Bothas hill

Bernha&Tys-56

Bernha & Tys got married at Bella Vista on not only the hottest day but also the worst downpour I have ever experienced, Bernha was also wearing the biggest dress I’ve ever seen it had so many beautiful layers and the ladies had a good laugh trying to straighten them all out… We went from sweating during the ceremony to trying to mist rolling in and big fat rain drops still managing to catch us even under cover, Luckily the storm decided to give us a break during the creative shoot (more…)

Preshanthi & Riccardo – Florida road engagement

Ric & Presh 01

Preshanthi and Riccardo contacted me about doing an engagement shoot but instead of asking me what a good location is, Presh immediately asked if we could do a night shoot on Florida road and I loved how original and excited she was. On the day of the shoot the weather did not want to play ball and it drizzled all day but luckily it held off for our shoot, I totally fell in love with the Royal blue and hot pink sari Presh chose to wear, she is so stunning inside and out!
