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. ...

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...

Happy Valentines Day!!! In light of this romantic date I would like to share this fresh, fun couple shoot with you. Most days I love my job, but sometimes I REALLY love it, and Sunday afternoon was a case in point! Photographing people who are in love makes me so happy and Martin and Lorene are perfect examples that! I met them in the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens and the hour just flew by because of how easy and enjoyable this shoot was. I hardly had to do any direction as their love and natural beauty did all the work for me! It was a typically wonderful Jo’burg evening and all...

On the 13th of January I met two very special families at Emmarentia Dam for a photoshoot. Sam is the sister in law of a very good friend of mine, Cherry. She and her husband Stuart, along with their beautiful daughter Caitlin, live in Australia and had come out to South Africa to spend the festive season with their families. Sam wanted to have photographs with her family and with Stuarts family. It was the biggest family gathering I have ever photographed, with a wide variety of ages including four children under the age of 4.  I had a great afternoon with both families. The little ones kept me on...

I was so excited when an old friend of mine asked me to do a family shoot for her and her whole family. Megan and I played hockey together, coached by her now husband Sean, when we were all at university and they have just added to their family with a beautiful baby girl, Ava. Today was the first time I had the pleasure of meeting 5 week old Ava and she is so precious. Not only did we have the family of 3, but also Megan’s parents, brother as well as sister and her family. Although I was keen to photograph this special family all together, Mother Nature tested...
