We got the time of day just right!  As I entered Brenton-on-Sea, the whole area was covered in soft light with the overhanging clouds.  We thought we would have to wait for the sunlight to soften before we could start, but this huge soft-box made things easy.  At the end of the session the sun came out blazing hot and bright!  The timing was perfect!  Another awesome family to add to my amazing client list.  Welcome and congratulations to the birth of your little one, hope to meet the new family member one day.

Garden Route Indalu Lodge Wedding – Fanie And Joyce

Weddings

Different, vibrant, happy!  These were the first three words that popped to mind when I thought about what to say about my last wedding for 2016.  Fanie and Joyce tied the knot in the shadow of elephants and had an array of locations for their wedding portraits.  So to say the least I was over the moon to capture this intimate wedding, having the chance to let my creativity flow in abundance! Thank you for a wonderful way to end the wedding season for 2016.

Having a bit of fun at yesterday’s family portrait session. Angie and I have come a long way in our friendship. She shared a very emotional time in my life with me and was a constant support in that difficult time.  It was a privilege to capture these portraits for her and her family.

Booking sessions on the beach during the busy holiday season is kind off risky. The wind was just horrible and we could not reschedule, so I am very thankful for the option of a studio facility. Marissa and her family came all the way from Gauteng to visit the Garden Route for the holliday season.  I worked with Marissa 14 years ago, and at that time we both were expecting our second child, it is hard to believe they are both turning 15 in 2017.  It was an honour to capture your beautiful family and it was great to see you again. Your girls are so gorgeous!  Enjoy the rest of your holiday and travel home safely.

Love the classic feel of these images from a recent mom and daughter studio session.  I strongly feel that studio portraits still have a valid place in the photography industry and should not be forgotten.  There is something timeless about them and all the focus is on the subject and not lost in the scenery of location sessions.

Nadia’s name means ‘HOPE’.  Her life story is a reflection of her name and I was honored to be trusted in capturing her and Johnathan’s day the way I feel is best.  The results are rewarding when clients trust you and treat you as a professional.  Thank you for your absolute trust in me as wedding photographer and to be part of such an amazing and heart warming day.

The absolute beauty of an expecting mother! We initially planned a session in the forest with a few beach photos afterwards, but things do not always work out as planned.  So happy with how thing turned out in the end, love these images of beautiful Roxzaan and her family expecting their second little one.

From the get go the dad of the Constance family treated my husband – assistant for the day! – and me like old family friends, this session did not feel like work! Dear Kay thank you for a great time with you and your family!

Weddings

Oh wow what an overload of awesomeness at this wedding! Elmarie went above and beyond in considering each and everyone at her and Evan’s wedding. Congratulations and thank you for the honor to be part of this special event!

I few words from the bride: “Once again like a young girl, I could look forward to my wedding. I originally wanted a male photographer as I thought they understood a bride better. However, we decided on you and we do not regret our decision. You truly are a professional, who was able to keep me calm. One can truly see your personality shine through when you work, despite having to lie down in the bushes! Every time I look at our pictures I remember the joy I felt on my wedding day, thank you for capturing every little detail. Thank you, you have immortalized our special day through your wonderful pictures.  Evan and Elmarie.”
