Couple – Warren & Kelly | Braamfontein

Kelly was given a voucher for a photo shoot from her friends for her birthday ๐Ÿ™‚ (What a lovely idea).ย Unfortunately before she could use it I moved to Cape Town. As fate would have it though I was planning a trip to JHB for other photoshoots and we could schedule a shoot with her and her wonderful boyfriend Warren on Sunday afternoon. I love Johannesburg CBD – the energy, architecture, graffiti and the eclectic mix of old and new make for wonderful photo opportunities. Warren and Kelly are the most wonderful couple – their adoration for each other is just incredible to witness. It was such a joy to be...

Engagement – Mat & Michelle | Emmarentia Dam

Michelle and Mathew are the most down to earth people you will ever meet. You may recognise them from their Wedding I posted a while ago (click here to see their photos). The day before their Wedding we met early at Emmarentia Dam – there is something so magical being up early and smelling the freshness that comes with the dew on the grass and the crispness of the cool air. Michelle’s enthusiasm for life is contagious and Mathew just adores her. We had a wonderful morning at the park taking a few more relaxed photographs before the Wedding Day.ย ...

Couple – Marilie & Cornel | Pretoria

On a beautiful Spring afternoon I met Marilie and Cornel and their two beautiful fluff balls at a gorgeous park in Pretoria. It was a beautiful day – warm air, not a breath of wind and the blossoms were out. I have never photographed in Pretoria and this park was beautiful. Marilie & Cornel have a quiet, strong, admirable love and adoration for each other, it was a blessing capturing some special memories for them with their fur children. I wish you guys a wonderful Wedding in Plett (it is going to be amazing!)...

Couple – Ryan & Tarryn | Morningside

What I love about photography is that it captures moments in life forever – so that you can look back on that time of your life and remember what was happening and a few little details that time erases. Tarryn and Ryan are in the process of moving from Johannesburg to Cape Town and asked me to capture some special photos of them on their house before they moved. This couple put a huge amount of work and effort into renovating their home and it looks like it comes straight off the pages of a glossy magazine – it is beautiful. They have just finished the building (the kitchen has...

Engagement – Matthew & Talya | Montecasino Piazza Hotel

Matthew contacted me asking me to photograph a couple session at the Plazzo Hotel at Montecasino one Saturday morning. He then told me that he wanted to propose during the photoshoot. These shoots make me SO excited ๐Ÿ™‚ an opportunity to capture someones forever when they say YES <3. Talya had always expressed a desire to have her wedding at the Palazzo hotel as she loves the gardens and the architecture so much but unfortunately it is a service that the hotel does not offer. This is why Matthew decided that this was the place to propose and do their engagement photos so that she would still have beautiful photos...

Engagement – Justin and Rentia | Emmarentia

Two weekends ago I met Rentia and Justin early on a misty overcast Saturday morning at Emmarentia Park to do their engagement shoot. Even though it was early and the weather was miserable these two laughed the whole shoot and were a joy to work with. We went to the Rose Garden in hopes the roses would be blooming but allas there were no roses however the trees in the garden were in full blossom – they were beautiful – the pinks and whites brightened up the day. We then moved to the top part of the park and met up with Bonnie and Clyde – these are Rentia and...

Wedding – Mpho & Tazna | Maboneng

Tazna and Mpho got married at the court in Randburg and met me in Maboneng to capture the two of them on their Wedding Day. It was a freezing day but Tazna looked exquisite in her lace and tulle dress. She was beaming with love for her new handsome husband Mpho. It was so wonderful to capture their Intimate Wedding day with just the two of them. They headed off that afternoon on honeymoon. Thank you Tazna and Mpho for a wonderful afternoon....

Couple – Jeffery & Natasha | JHB CBD

A while ago I ran a competition through Lauren Kim Photography to win a free couple Photoshoot. All the entrants needed to do was submit their idea of their ideal Photoshoot with their partner. The winners of the competition were Tasha and Jeffery. Their idea was to use their hobbies in the Photoshoot. Their hobbies were Parkor and Yoga and they used each other to create amazing body positions using their strength and flexibility. This was going to be a Photoshoot to remember. We met on Saturday morning, very early at 7am on top of Constitution Hill in Johannesburg. The couple are moving to Amsterdam in the next month and...

Couple – Robert and Jessica | Maboneng

Jess and I met at school in Nelspruit – I had moved at 16 from JHB to Nelspruit and I was very unhappy with the move. I was crying in the car park and outside the assembly hall when this beautiful girl came up to me and spoke to me and gave me a hug and told me that it would all be ok. Her kindness, empathy and sincerity shone through her and without her I would not have walked into that assembly hall – I guess you can say she was my first friend. Jess has the most incredible soul and spirit! I was so excited when she asked...

Couple – Gareth & Tamsyn | Delta Park

Tamsyn contacted me a while ago to do an engagement shoot for them to use for their Save the Dates (They are doing something AMAZING with them – I cannot wait to see it). We met at Delta Park and had such a wonderful time walking all over the place – they were such sports allowing me to use a lot of photos all over the park (which required lots of walking in between locations – Thank You). I loved how stark the surroundings of the park were (being winter) – bare trees, dead grass and crystal blue skies. Even though the environment was cold and stark, Gareth and Tams...

Couple – Dean and Bronwyn | Hyde Park

It always astounds me at how small the world is. Ali referred her beautiful sister to me for an engagement shoot the week before her wedding. Bronwyn happened to be my Matric at St. Mary’s when I was in Std. 6. She is the most beautiful wonderful woman who is marrying a man who is besotted with her. They are currently living in London but they have flown home to get married in sunny South Africa. When I arrived at this house – I was greeted with a garden no one can imagine. It was enormous with a vegetable garden I could only wish for. We had the amazing privilage...

Couple – Muhammed and Ammaarah | Bryanston

There are certain things as a photographer that are on my “bucket list” of things to capture. One of them was a proposal “in real life”. Muhammed contacted me a while ago and told me of his plans to have a couple shoot but that he wanted to propose half way through and have photos in the moment. I was so excited – I did a little dance in my office when I got the email. Over email we made plans on how he wanted to propose so I knew of the plan. After an outfit change and a few photos Muhammed got down on one knee and popped the...

Engagement – Donald and Tracy | Delta Park

Tracy and Don met me in Delta Park for their engagement shoot with their two little dogs. The park is in the full swing of Autumn with all the trees glowing yellow, orange and red which complimented these two radiant love birds perfectly. Donald and Tracy met through running and thus they sported beautiful bright takkies. Tracy is the most bubbly, beautiful person who’s laugh is contagious and Donald is besotted with her. They bought their two dogs along for the shoot (always my favourite). I cannot wait for their Winter Wedding – it is going to be a day filled with love and laughter and lots of special memories....

Couple – Johnny and Richard | Blairgowrie

I met and became friends with Richard at his coffee shop Citizen Cafe on Conrad Avenue in Blairgowrie (my home and office away from home). When he saw my Valentines Day competition to win your dream couple shoot he came up with a Dali inspired shoot with randomness being the key factor. ย Rich asked me to do the shoot anyway as a Valentines Day shoot. Johnny and Richard have a magnificent house filled with beautiful, modern, colourful pieces that I am very envious of. The shoot was filled with laughter – from shouting at each other with a megaphone to balancing apples on Johnny’s head and eventually to throwing buckets...
