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...

I just wanted to wish you all a very happy new year filled with happiness and health, and to thank you all for stopping by in 2010.

Looking forward to 2011, hopefully it will pass a little slower.

Wishing you all the Christmas magic from our family to yours!





I will be taking a few days off to enjoy some time with my family. Back in January with some wedding posts for the new year.

Thank you for your kind words, it is always nice putting faces to the "stats" of the blog.
I know your beautiful side of the world my husband has family in Grenada - so I have been fortunate enough to see your corner of the globe!

Today is a public holiday and we have decided to make it a long weekend away. Back in the office on Monday.


I thought I had better do an itty bitty post this morning as it's been a bit sparse on the wedding side. A sneak peak of what is yet to be posted.

Dear Andrea. I found your blog on internet. The old one. And there I found the link to this new website. I just want you to know that I think your work is fantastic. I am a 21 yo brazilian girl. My boyfriend is canadian and I'm probably moving there very soon. As we already talked about getting married I search photographs very often and yours are the best I've seen so far. I'm in love with your work.

Andrea, the moments you capture are so crystal clear with life, joy and elegance I absolutely love your work. I am just starting out as a photographer, I live in the states, and am going to my first conference next week! If you wouldn't mind, I would love to know what kind of camera you are using, I don't know if the major brands are different in South Africa, but it is evident your camera and how you work the lens is fabulous. I hope you are enjoying yourself!

Thank you ladies!
@ Joanna - this picture was taken with the Canon 5D Mk11 with the 2.8 24-70 mm lens

(01.03.11 @ 05:53 PM)

how much did it cost you? and how many lenses do you use or is there one that pretty much does the job?

As I type this, the moments which come to mind are Taryn's bridesmaids, who cried even before Taryn walked down the aisle. The emotional walk down that coveted footpath, the awesome first dance and the presentation Taryn's father put together at the reception.

A dashing groom, a beautiful bride - who knew how to rock her frock - an emotional ceremony (that almost had me shedding a tear) and an all-out enormous party - what can I say? All in a day's work!

We decided to venture away from the traditional hot spots at Oakfield and both Taryn and Chris did not as much as flinch at the locations we suggested. Although, I might add, there was a slither of panic in Taryn's eye when I mentioned the swing ;-)

No more blabbering from my side - I am far too excited to show off the images from this wedding.
