TO Strand Holiday

Last week we headed down to TO Strand for the last of the school holidays and since all the other schools had already started, the park was quite empty.  This is one of the better caravan parks as the facilities are clean, the sites are awesome, the staff are friendly and helpful, and of course the beach is a stones throw away.  We had an amazing time with more highs than … [Read more...]

Umhlanga Lagoon

Just after the new year started Mandy, the kids and I walked from Umhlanga to Umdloti along the beach.   We often walk along the beach to the Umhlanga lagoon and have always wanted to do the full walk so it was a good time to make that wish come true.  Along the way we came across a set of rocks that had been scoured out by some rough seas and that we had not seen before.  This … [Read more...]

Wedding at Providence with Dale and Hazel

I was excited to photograph this wedding after meeting with Dale and Hazel as their laughter, enthusiasm, honesty and down to earth nature was extremely infectious.  I had been photographing an event in Johannesburg for a few days and left there at 5:30am to head to Providence in the KZN Midlands.  Thankfully the roads weren't too busy and all the storms held off so I made good … [Read more...]

Country wedding at Old Halliwell followed by Umabo in Pietermaritzburg

Sithembiso and Makhosazane chose the ideal venue to get married, Old Halliwell in the KZN Midlands.  It has everything from accommodation, a chapel on site, a beautiful reception venue and then of course picturesque settings to have the photoshoot done or for guests to relax in between formalities.  The weather on the Saturday ranged from overcast and rainy when I arrived, to … [Read more...]

Engagement shoot with Trevor and Kelly

We were all very excited when Kelly burst into the office one morning recently sporting enough bling to get any solar powered enthusiast excited.  I volunteered my services to do an engagement shoot so this Friday was the day.  Trevor brought along the apple of his eye, and Kelly of course, so there was a lot of love in the air.  I had chosen an out of the way venue which I … [Read more...]

Maternity shoot at Durban Beachfront with Imraan & Alison

I photographed Imraan and Alison's wedding a few years ago and then very recently Alison's sister Candice's wedding so this should have been an easy, relaxed shoot.  It started with Alison being extremely apprehensive, which is understandable when you are almost due with your first child, so things were a little awkward at first.  Thankfully Candice had joined us and brought a … [Read more...]

Transkei getaway with my twin brother Part Two

Day Three continued... Day Four This was our last full day of the holiday so we had to make the most of it (as if the hyperactive past few days didn't count) so we headed out early and tried our luck at fishing at Umdumbi point once again. Same result... We then headed home, and after breakfast, made our way back to Umdumbi point but this time continued … [Read more...]

Transkei getaway with my twin brother Part One

I decided that I needed a break from work, as much as I love my job, as my brain was feeling like it had been stretched to it's limits and was like a squeezed out sponge.  The only problem was trying to find a few days that I wasn't already booked for and could get away with as little disruption as possible.  I was prepared to go on my own but thankfully my twin brother Warren … [Read more...]

Catholic wedding in Durban with Dwayne and Candice

Dwayne and Candice seemed very chilled when we met so I had the feeling that it was going to be a normal wedding with no surprises and curve balls.  Ok, so you would feel quite let down if I said that it was a "normal wedding" and that nothing went wrong and you would feel let down because there was no drama and nothing to talk about. Actually there was no "drama" just a few … [Read more...]

Muslim wedding at Durban Exhibition Centre with Nawaaz and Yumnah

Unfortunately I never got the chance to meet with Nawaaz and Yumnah before the wedding but that was not an issue on the day as they were both so relaxed and easy to work with.  Weddings can be quite stressful, yet they both seemed to just soak up the loving atmosphere and enjoy the special occasion.  Time is always against you at weddings so although we had planned to do a … [Read more...]
