A magical autumn afternoon in a Parkview park was the perfect setting for this gorgoues bump shoot with the Van Wyk family. I love Caro's bright dress, Grace's enchanting smile and the amazing light refraction unique to a Joburg sunset. Only 4 weeks to go and then we finally get to meet little AJ, yippee!... read more
Wow this was such a beautiful wedding. Claire and Paul planned everything perfectly and Ground was the most magic setting for a summer wedding with the look and feel of a destination wedding in the Midlands or the Cape when in fact we were only 30minutes from Joburg.
There are so many things I want to point out about this wedding, from Claire's seamless dress that magically transformed into the perfect dancing dress, to the suspended wreath of greenery at the top of the altar. They were married by their friend and bridesmaid and I loved how the wedding rings were passed around the entire congregation for love & prayer. There was a Gin Bar and Harvest table unlike anything we had seen before, dinner was served buffet style but at each table with wooden boards suspended above the flower arrangements followed by an epic sweets and cupcake. There was sunlit grapevines and fields of long grass to shoot in, beautiful dusty pink bridesmaids dresses and lots and lots of Prosecco!... read more
I know its already Februrary and therefore riduclously late to be posting a highlights reel from 2017, but in my defense we shot more than 40 families, 4 proposals and 10 weddings last year and this is only part of the work we do. We have been busy.
So here it is, a few of our favourites from the year that was. Suprise waterfall proposals, windy beach days, sunny forests adventures, rainy wedding days and everything in between. It's been epic and we loved it.
Thanks to all our amazing clients, it never ceases to amaze us what amazing people we meet in this job... read more
When you dreamt of your wedding proposal I promise very few of you could have imaged something as amazing as what Tejiri planned for Kokgetso. A weekend at the 5 star Karkloof Safari Villa's, a day of treatments at the Karkloof Safari Spa. A private gamedrive and a walk to the base of a massive waterfall! A toatlly unexpected proposal with a stunning ring, followed by a photo shoot,sundowners and champagne.
We loved being part of this perfectly planned surprise and we cant wait to be there for their amazing wedding day! Congrats again Tejiri & Kokgetso... read more
We love doing a newborn shoot like this one. Meeting a family in their home where the newest member arrived only a few days before.We love looking for those spaces where games are played, babies sleep and books are read. The McFayden certainly made our lives easy in their beautiful home with 2 gorgeous girls who were such fun to take pics of. Thanks for picking us, we had such fun with you guys... read more
I have to admit that I was so super chuffed when Robs asked us to do her family photo shoot. Not only are they special friends, but Robs is an awesome family photographer in her own right. We love her work and we want her to shoot our family. So we were excited and nervous about the challenge of capturing epic pics for her and Rich. But they made our lives easy. What gorgeous kids and so many creative ideas that included a fairy garden walk, jumping on the bed and even a little bit of nudity (sorry you don't get to see those pics).
Take a look, I am sure you will love them as much as we did. Of course, now the pressure is on us to do our own family photo shoot!!!! We will be booking soon Robyn Rose!... read more
There was so much I loved about this beautiful Ballito Wedding. It was the most spectacular day and as is so often the case in Balliot, we totally forgot it was meant to be the middle of winter!
We had such a jol with Bret and his groomsmen who not only chose to get dressed at such a brilliant location but also were happy to mess around with top hats and suspenders, even though they weren't part of the original outfit plan!
Amy's dress was so unique and gorgeous and I loved each of the unique pink bridesmaids' dresses.
After a wedding service full of tears and laughter in the gardens of Braeside we took the bridal party off to the surrounding Ballito farm areas to find some unique locations for photos. Sunset, rolling valleys and a couple more than happy to enjoy each other and the view allowed us to get some really epic photos. Then back to Braeside for some proper dancing.
Thanks for picking us Bret & Amy, we had such a fun day with you guys and you made our job so easy with your happy smiles and relaxed nature. I have no doubt your lives are going to be full of epic adventures.

I just loved this photo shoot with the White Family. How gorgeous are these little girls smiles.
So often clients want to shoot on the beach because Ballito is by the sea, but don't underestimate the amazing greens and yellows of a coastal forest shoot, not to mention the amazing afternoon light we get here. In the end, the shoot will be about your happy faces not about the location, so if your shoot is moved because of the wind or other weather elements, trust me, it will probably turn out better than you had imagined... read more
