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

 

At PeppermintPix we are all about the fun when doing family photo shoots! We are about real smiles, serious laughing and having too much fun! All children love running & jumping, chasing after bubbles and being swung around by dad. Every parent loves to hear their child laugh out loud.

So many people hate having their photo taken but are desperate for some beautiful photos of their family. I promise you will have fun with us! I promise you will love how easy and relaxed it all was and I am pretty sure you will love your pics. So if you feel like hanging out with your family for a couple of hours, and if you are up for making your kids giggle while spending some time outdoors, then pick a place, invite us to come with you and let us take those photos you have been dreaming of... read more

 

I warn you, these photos are gonna make you feel all gooey inside. Seriously I am not sure if it's because little Ella is only 6 weeks old, or because Mia has the most infectious & naughty smile. I might be the awesome dad & daughter pics, or just the gorgeous winter light. Whatever it is I love this shoot and I hope you do too!... read more

 

Every now and then photographers get a bit of a spoiling. 

A styled shoot, without any of the pressures of a real wedding day, really gives everyone involved an opportunity to stretch their creative muscles and show off a bit. Everyone plays a part in creating a story that is both romantic and dreamy in a setting that is part blank canvass and part playful muse in sparking ideas for the story. 

What started as a simple idea between ourselves and Kim from Kim White Weddings, grew into an afternoon of creative indulgence. Using a soon to be launched, but still very secret wedding venue in Salt Rock we wanted to show off the incredible talent working weddings here on the KZN North Coast... read more

 

This is a wedding that I think truly had it all! A gorgeous bride wearing such a beautiful Olivelli two-piece wedding dress. A dashing, surfer, lawyer groom. The most awesome city wedding venue that is Katy's Palace Bar, complete with its unique eclectic decor, an epic view and perfect party venue vibe. But this wasn't just a day of beautiful people and glamorous venues, it was also a day about family. Kim's whole family (cousins and all) came to help her get ready. The house was full of tulle and sneaker wearing flower girls, siblings, parents, cousins and friends. Kim was the calm centre of this happy storm... read more

 

A sneak preview from an epic wedding we shot at the end of 2016! Kim was the most magnificent bride and we just loved her fairytale dress. Katy's Palace is our new favourite venue with its unusual decor and 180-degree view of Joburg. We can't wait show you the rest of the pics as soon as they are ready. Watch this space...... read more

 

I still can't quite believe that 2016 is done and dusted! What a year! For some not so great but for us it was pretty special. Not only did we add a new member to our family; Mr Max Anthony, but we met awesome new families, went to epic weddings and captured some pretty awesome pics. Even more brilliant was winning Gold, Silver and Bronze awards in the Admired In Africa competition. 

That said I am not sad the year is over, I am ready for a new year and all that it means to start fresh, get creative and try something new.  But before we get stuck into things, here are some of our favourites from the past year. From babies to bumps, engagements to weddings, beaches to forest and everything in between, we have shot SO much and we have loved every second.

Happy New Year!... read more
