The Hillary Wedding

Hayley and Brett tied the knot in a stunning and intimate garden wedding earlier this month. Hayley is exquisite and looked absolutely breathtaking in her Ted Baker dress. The colour palette was soft and floral and the decor subtle but so striking. The champers was flowing the entire day and the vibe was such fun, so many laughs and great stories. Mr and Mrs Marshall – thank you for allowing me to capture you very special day! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness.

Gina and Renzo’s Joint Birthday Party

Gina and Renzo recently celebrated their combined birthday party (3 and 1) on Mothers Day. Despite the icy air and constant rain the kids had an absolute blast playing on the jungle gyms, riding the pony and catching rain drops on their tongues. The adults (because as we know, wisdom comes with age ;)) celebrated indoors with cozy heaters and delicious food. The 3 Moreira siblings are just the sweetest – as are their friends! Thanks for inviting me to capture this special day Sally-Ann and Marco! Continue reading

A Family Affair!

One of the things I love most about working in Joburg over December – apart from no traffic and relatively empty shopping malls – is being around to capture families as their loved ones flock home for the holidays. The late summer sunsets also allow me to head from the office to a shoot and get photos in the most perfect light. Yesterday was just one of those afternoons that I wanted to bottle up – Gayl contacted me to shoot at a naming ceremony for 4 of the kids in her extended family – Jack, Keanan, Kaden and Kian. It was such a special ceremony where i got to witness the entire family stepping up to commit and promise lifelong support of each others children – really too special for words. Afterwards they picnicked on the lawns and the kids ran around and played… and smiled beautifully for the camera! You’ve got to love a bit of cupcake bribery ūüôā¬† Continue reading

A Twins First Birthday Party!

The only way to describe the first birthday of twins Kenzy and Skyla is ‘A ray…make that TWO rays of sunshine’. The venue was just gorgeous, the decor absolutely amazing and the vibe was such fun. Clair is the most bubbly, vivacious and outgoing person I have ever met and she made me feel like a guest the entire day. I even left with a huge box of sweets which I may or may not have eaten before I even got home. Skyla and Kenzy are the most precious little girls and adored by everyone. I loved their matching outfits, sparkly gold shoes and calm beautiful souls. Congratulations Claire and Steve, this was the most perfect celebration! Continue reading

Matthew Turns ONE!

Matthew is the sweetest little boy, with a mop of blonde hair and the most gorgeous blue eyes! I met him and his mom and dad – Nicolette and Wayne – to snap pics at his first birthday party this past weekend.

Happy birthday Matthew, and congrats to mom and dad.¬† Continue reading

Jessica’s Bachelorette Bash

Jessica got in touch a few weeks ago to ask if I was available to snap some pics at¬†her bridal shower. I wasn’t, but I shuffled a few things around, and I am so glad I did! The venue, decor, attention to detail and love that filled the air was simply indescribable. Jessica is also the most beautiful women inside and out and made me feel right at home on her big day.
