About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

Weddings do not take place under perfect studio conditions and so, as a photographer, you pretty much have to make it work with what is handed to you on the day: rain, time restrictions,etc, you name it.

On some very rare occasions, however, you do get great light in a kitchen, with black granite splash backs.

...just sometimes, you are lucky enough to capture a lightening bolt ;-). 

One from Sabrina and Nelso's wedding.

On a cold and rather gloomy day in Joburg today, looking a Jacqui and Chris's gorgeous & stylish Morrells Wedding immediately lifts my mood.

To gather all the people you love too an intimate French themed venue and to declare your love to your partner is not really something you can describe with words. It's a time for friends and family to celebrate, drink wine and eat good food. 

I love their wedding because it was exactly that;  an intimate celebration of love.

Just one frame from Sonia's maternity session. Have I mentioned just how much I love silhouettes?

Well, what I totally love about images like this is that it can be printed onto an A2 canvas and then displayed in your home as a piece of art. Nobody would be any the wiser that it's actually you in the image.

There is something really exceptional about a wedding set in the heart of the African bushveld that cannot be forsaken.   Joerg and Marina chose the unspoilt tranquillity of Madikwe Reserve to exchange vows, just the two of them soaked up in the beauty of Africa. 

Writing this post, I smile thinking back of the two of them driving through South Africa, their road trip planned with German precision with no stop excluded ;-).  Recounting all their travel stories over dinner around the boma, I remember laughing with the pastor and teasing Joerg, who we referred to as the modern-day "Chuck Norris", along with his partner in crime, Marina.

Thank you both so much. This will certainly remain as one of my fondest memories from 2015.

TIA (This is Africa).
