From start to finish, Robin & Kyle set out to create a perfect wedding day– but not in the traditional sense. For them, perfect wasn’t a big to-do surrounded by friends and family, perfect was honoring the love they found in each other and this was perfect for elopement. So they spent the day soaking in everything they love about the city and each other. Forget what you think you know about elopements and prepare to be awash in moment after stunning moment of this real couple’s intimate ceremony. After the ceremony as official Mr. and Mrs., the couple adjourned to Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens for their first photos as husband and wife.
We had the pleasure of photographing the Blose family, such warm and loving family.

Allan & Deborah’s wedding was an elegant, one of a kind affair and we were both lucky and honored to have been commissioned to photograph their special day. Deborah’s elegance and grade is a perfect match for Allan’s confident swagger, and the way these two looked at each other throughout the day made our job so much easier. We’re trained to look for moments, and emotion, and there was no shortage here. I’ve never seen such a climatic buildup to a first kiss or listened to such heartfelt toasts by guests to newlyweds. These two are definitely respected, loved and cherished by their friends, families and communities. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, they loved, laughed and danced the night away. As you’ll see in the images below, its clear that this was was the happiest day of both their lives. Below are a few of our favorite images from Allan & Deborah’s wedding day.

Lots of times engagement sessions serve as the ice breaker, lets you get acquainted with the couple, But sometimes it just serves as a good ol time hanging out with two new friends and that is exactly what this felt like. There was no ice to break, not kinks to work out because we all just meshed perfectly, we really were just hanging out and making photos. Here are a few of my favorites from Azania & Bafana’s engagement session.
Moses and Mbali are one heck of a cute couple. We all came together at Maboneng Precinct for this specific engagement shoot. We love to shoot at JHB CBD because it is what I like to call an inception location. You get one giant lush park with tons of smaller, more intimate places to take photos. There are locations inside of locations. Inception. With its beginnings in art, Maboneng has evolved into a collaborative hub of culture, business and lifestyle that entices curiosity, encourages exploration and promotes a sense of urban togetherness. They both enjoy photography and have a great eye together so it was a huge pleasure and ease to shoot the two of them. We will update the blog very soon with photos from their actual wedding. Keep an eye out!

Dineo & Mmatli | Location Maternity Shoot | Little Falls We met Dineo and Mmatli last year when we did their pre wedding shoot, since then we’ve become good friends and we also shot their awesome wedding in December. They decided to go for an outdoor shoot for the maternity session which we shot at the Little Falls park in Roodeport, it was my first time in the park and its a little run down.
