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...

Good morning. 

I am now on a roll.   I have finally finished my Christmas shopping and about to begin my  edit-a-thon,  but for now let's brighten up this blog with something special:  Mena's and Neil's corker of a wedding.

During the getting ready part of the day, Mena happened to assure me that Neil wouldn't cry throughout the ceremony, but when crunch time came (yes, you guessed it), there were uncontrollable tears, excited beaming smiles, emotional embraces and kisses - quite simply, just perfect.

What I love, and what makes it all the more interesting, is that each and every couple has a different tale to tell; each has their own consummate individuality and quirks, which makes them and their day singularly unique. 

For this big occasion, Mena provided the speechless beauty and Neil the unimpeachable charisma.  Into this flawless recipe, add astonishingly moody skies courtesy of Gauteng's rather wet and rainy December this year.... and  me?  Well, I just pointed the camera and fired away.

Oh, and did I mention that as an extra indulgence, Mena's and Neil's guests treated us to some rather fancy Gangnam-style footwork ;-)

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead and enjoy the sneak peak ...  and off to Lightroom I go.

















...isn't technology awesome, sometimes. 





















And last but not least, thank you Karin for the beautiful blooms, they really did brighten up my home.


Mena got ready at Lombardy Hotel
