Renita + Jaco  l  Weddings

Renita and Jaco make me feel so fortunate to do what I do for a living. You may recognize them from their recent engagement shoot we did in Kalk Bay which you can see here.

Renita’s emails to me always ended with ‘we are so blessed to have you take our photos’. These kind words go such a long way and made me feel very blessed to have them as clients.

These two lovebirds got married on a windy day in the Natal Midlands and it was such a treat to shoot at Netherwood, a really lovely venue for a wedding!

Renita and Jaco, thank you for having me be a part of your most special day, enjoy your photos!

I could just eat him up.

I LOVE photographing babies at this age. Around the 6/7 month mark they are sitting and smiling so beautifully and I find it the perfect time for photos!

Thanks Tamsyn and Tom for having me over to photograph your little guy!

Euro-trip  l  Travel

I was SO excited when I got a booking to shoot a wedding in Germany. It wasn’t my first international wedding but certainly my first European one! You can see the engagement shoot I also did for Julia and Alex here.

Julia (the bride) happens to be the sister of a photographer friend of mine (Tanja of Kibogo Photography). Tanja lives in Siegburg, Germany and invited my friend Claire and I to stay with her for as long as we liked. Claire and I planned a little Euro-trip and had the most incredible time!

Julia + Alex  l  Engaged

It is with great excitement that I post Alex and Julia’s (destination) engagement shoot. These lovebirds booked me for their wedding all the way in Bonn, Germany. It’s turned into a little bit of a working holiday and we had time to do an engagement shoot two weeks before their wedding. I loved the the location they picked out and we were blessed with some golden sunlight.

Happy Friday all and keep a lookout for their wedding in the near future.. it’s bound to be super sweet!

Love from Hamburg, Germany.

Renita & Jaco  l  Engaged

Kalk Bay is one of my favourite places, not only for shoots but also for just hanging out. I live about 10 minutes away so it is somewhere I frequent regularly.

Renita and Jaco mentioned they might like to have their engagement session in Kalk Bay so I suggested the harbor. We had some pretty light to work with and these two are smitten with eachother.

Renita and Jaco I can’t WAIT for your upcoming wedding in the Natal Midlands!

It was another gorgeous day in the cape winelands and we were blessed with the most magical light during the couple shoot. I really enjoyed photographing Lizanne and James, they have a soft and tender kind of love!
