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...

Spending my Heritage Day editing Yolanda and Eugene's beautiful wedding that took place in the African bush. 

It was such a pleasure to photograph Yolanda and Eugene (and little Miss Chloe) in the Bobbejaansberg Nature Reserve.

It was by pure accident that we discovered this section of empty rooftop with its modern architecture, and it wasn't too long before we were also detected by a security guard. 

Anyhow, we managed to sneak in a couple of crackers before we were escorted off site ;-).

A pair of fun-loving personalities, not afraid to be themselves and I'm so excited to shoot their wedding in November!

t has often been said that a picture is worth a thousand words and ín today's age, most of us will try to catch a passing moment, or a selfie, with a click of our phone. 
We try to capture emotion, small details, smells and memories that we may forget, but can then look back on later.

For me, the "the blogging part" is a lot harder than the shooting part and that is probably why it's sometimes quieter here than it should be. 

It is not because I do not want to share photographs here, but rather because I have so much I want to say about each couple, but with my limited writing skills I feel words fail me - particularly when trying to articulate each wedding

Take for example Tanya and Shaun. Another cracking couple.  A fun, joyous and insane celebration of love with so many individual touches. So much laughter; some rather dodgy "posing" direction from Shaun and his groomsmen, but just two great people who made their commitment in the presence of their nearest and dearest! 

Here is Tanya's and Shaun's picture story:

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 ;-).

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 ;-).
