PeppermintPix is about to see some massive changes (more about that soon) but by far the sadest, is that our wonderful Jen will be leaving us soon!! If you have made a booking with us in the last 3 years, then you have probably chatted Jen; our wonderful, gentle, kind hearted , no nonsense Jen. She has been our amazing production manager all while raising this beautiful family, running comrades and generally over achieving.
We have been planning this shoot with Jen and her family since the first day she started working for us, I am thrilled we finally made it happen! Jen your children are gorgeous, you and Derek are doing such an amazing job raising these 3 small humans.
We are going to miss having you in our business so much Jen. Luckily we still get see you everyday at school pick-ups, playdates, braais and on the beach. I have no idea how I will fill your shoes! Thank-you for everything you have done for us in the last few years... read more
Whenever I think about this wedding it makes me smile. A spring wedding in the bush complete with wildlife, wild groomsmen, landdrovers, so much laughter and even a full moon or 2. Kelly and Alan planned a brilliant wedding at the new and improved Bayala Game Lodge which borders Phinda in Northern KZN. The got married in a forest in the middle of the bush, followed by a chic picnic braai, a sunset game drive, dinner under the stars and a full moon rising during the speeches. We laughed so much we had to stop taking pics to wipe our eyes. At the same time there were tears of happiness and love all round.
Such a beautiful day, thanks for inviting us along we loved taking pics for you guys. I hope your life and marriage is filled with as much laughter and fun as your wedding day... read more
BE WARNED; if you are in danger of getting broody, then dont keep reading this blog! The idea of 3 boys is enough to intimidate any person, but when you see the reality of 3 brothers,and all the fun and love that lies ahead, it is going to make you want another baby!
This is our 3rd shoot with this wonderful family and since they just moved to the UK its possibly our last. But that said, we may just go and visit them soon, because we will will miss them so much.
All the best on your next great adventure!... read more
I suddenly woke up to the fact that I never blogged about this beautiful wedding that we shot towards the end of 2017.
I knew we were going to have fun with Tshego and Ndumiso from the moment we met months before the big day. They were so relaxed, new exactly what they wanted and trusted us to just do our thing!
The Midlands was showing off on the their wedding day at the always spectaular Lythwood Lodge. From Ndumiso awsome blue jacket to the guests themselves everywehre we turend our lenses there were bright colurs and massive smiles. Tshego looked breath taking and Ndumiso face when he first saw her literlly made me cry.
Such a fantastic day of love, family and true celebration, we loved being part of it... read more

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
