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...

Bronwyn's and Stuart's wedding was nothing short of an African dream.   Beneath the arching boughs of a magnificent 400-year-old fig tree, serving as their open-air chapel and situated in the unspoilt foothills of the Waterberg, surrounded by family and close friends.


I've been lucky enough to photograph my fair share of African savanna matrimonies and it goes without saying that there's certainly something about doing the couple-shoot on a game drive;   enjoying sundowners in a scenic location as the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon. You also end the day off, welcomed by a boma area (or reception), lit by a crackling bonfire with lanterns and lights .... yep, you just can't beat it.

 

There were so many moments that I want to mention here, but, far too many to do them the virtue they so justly deserve. 

To mention but two, there was Bryan's guitar ode to Bronwyn and Stuart and then the novel raising of Energade-filled glasses
to toast the bride and groom, very apt as both Bron and Stu are dedicated runners.

As a compromise, for the lack of words, I leave you with this brief visual glimpse of Bronwyn's and Stuart's absolutely fabulous marriage ceremony, hopefully you'll take in a dash of what we experienced.

Whilst I thought the blankets were a nice detail touch for the chilly evening around the campfire, an even nicer aspect was that after the wedding they were donated to the local animal shelter.

Oh wow, Andrea, I feel such gratitude and wonderful fluttery feelings at seeing your incredible images of our wedding. You captured it all perfectly! We can't wait to see the rest. (And thank you and Stella for being so patient with me as the sun quickly disappeared and we raced to capture the beautiful moments after our rather late ceremony!)

I really wanted to post a wedding before I left, but just ran out of time. (Stu & Bron it will be up when I return)

I am in Zambia, with no internet or mobile phone connection and back on the 5th July 2012.

Every so often, you encounter a couple who like to do things a touch differently and, for this particular post, I present you with Jacinta and Josh who truly are one of those two-of-a-kind individuals.

Josh and Jacinta, who hail from Australia, officially tied the knot in Oz a year ago.  Well at that time, Josh's family travelled from South Africa to witness their exchange of vows.

One year later down the line, the tables were turned and Jacinta's family then trekked all the way from Australia to celebrate their marriage being blessed on African soil.

Introducing Josh and Jacinta, two of the nicest people I have ever met.
