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...

As the season gradually winds down, as the cooler weather comes in, I am finally fitting in more time to get some work slotted in on my blog.

One of the perks of my job is that I get to know most of the parks and scenic spots in and around Johannesburg, plus I can tell you wholeheartedly that the city offers a great variety of options when it comes to venues to shoot. 

Natasha and MJ chose to have a "country" engagement session.  The weather gods had given us a cloudy day, but they were kind enough to bless us with some fantastic rays of sunlight beaming through the trees.

Here's a quick once-over from their session, whilst I catch up with my mammoth blog backlog - and if you are waiting for your peek ... hang tight, it is definitely on it's way ;-).



To see more from this session have a look on my Facebook Page.

Sometimes you need to take a break from weddings and photograph chubby cheeks ;-). I photographed Laura and Stephen's wedding several years ago and Laura recently contact me for a family shoot. 

It is such an honour to be able to capture some more memories for this gorgeous family, because they don't stay small for long enough ;-).

Izel and Hylton chose to get married at Hartebeesport dam. 

A truly magnificent setting, with the tranquil dam and the colours of twilight forming a spectacular backdrop....Oh how I love the backdrops South Africa has to offer.


More photographs from Izel and Hylton''s wedding over here.

I shot my last wedding of the year yesterday, so I have a few weeks off now to relax and unwind with my family. 

Before I do that though, I have one ceremony that I've wanted to post here for a long time, but finding the additional time, in between editing and launching my new website, just did not happen.

Let me introduce Christine and Richard, my first green wedding! Christine's and Richard's green-themed wedding was eco-friendly, whereby the couple tries to decrease the impact of their event on the planet.

Christine's d├ęcor consisted of plants and vegetables that were then donated to less privileged schools and organisations after the wedding. The handmade African art not only supported local craftsmen, but also made for great gifts for the couple's guests. Every single detail was well thought out.

Christine and Richard, thank you so much for picking me to capture your wedding day, it was such a pleasure to be a part of this very special and unique occasion.
