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...

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).

I will be off the radar for the next few days as I will be in Zimbabwe. Just this one on the blog from this absolutely charming wedding that I shot in Madikwe. Hoping to get this wedding onto the blog in the next couple of weeks.

It is not everyday that you get asked "Where do you want the plane?".

The one thing that I love about Africa is the weather never disappoints.  
It was  a dapper day filled with puffy clouds, a gorgeous couple,  vintage props, a couple of laughs and a whole lot of adorable images!

Thank you David and Eloise I had a great time photographing you Vintage Plane inspired shoot.

Just another fantastic reason why I prefer maternity sessions in the comfort of someone's own home ;-).   

In fact, here's ample proof that studios aren't always the preserve of all camera work, since I'm confident there are few (if any) production rooms that include such a dreamy, stain-glass door to create a photo of this nature.  It certainly has created the most consummate and personal image for Britt.

It goes without saying that when I first made Natalie's and Austen's acquaintance, it wasn't the average, run-of-the-mill client/photographer meeting.  There was talk of wine, duck suits and of ladders, to name but a few.


Natalie's and Austen's wedding was one that was blessed with an abundance of visual treats; equally served with oodles of breathtaking panoramas:  From the African theme, to the beautiful backdrop that surrounds Kloofzicht Lodge.   We had a fantastic time churning out these images, as well as enjoying the perfect August day.  


Pure Africa. Sunshine. Booze. Marimba Bands. Chilling by the lake. Unique. Special Moonlight. Homemade Desserts. Music. Laughter.  Inimitable bride & groom. That pretty much sums up this special ceremony.


Thank you Natalie and Austen, I wish we could do it again ;-).
