So this is the last part of Cassandra and Diaans beautiful wedding. They had a breathtaking ceremony in a forest which was nothing short of a fairytale, especially with Diaan in his uniform formals and Cass in her strapless gown ;)

Cassandra + Diaan Farm Chic Wedding | part two








This is part two of three of Cassandra and Diaans beautiful farm chic wedding. The resounding cool theme with blues and purple hues that came together exquisitely in an even more perfect setting on the De Uijlenes farm venue. I had such a ball with the decor as you can see! The bridesmaids dresses carried on the colour theme and with their white and fresh green fynbos mixed bouquets to match.

Cassandra + Diaan Farm Chic Wedding | part one


This is post one of three of a very special wedding that I documented in Stanford not too long ago. It's not often that I get invited to capture the rehearsal dinner and set-up before a wedding, which makes this wedding so different and special. It was a cool overcast day and close family and friends were at the venue to help put together the perfect wedding

Loving all things pretty.


So it's become kind of an annual tradition to go to Kamersvol and my designated creative shopper is my mom :) And this years Kamersvol 2012 event was as spectacular as the years before. I enjoy walking through all the colourful stalls and photographing the flowers and interesting things that catch my eye, I even won the photo competition last year that they had running!

Maryke + Kobus | Stellenbosch


 This is the pretty wedding of Maryke and Kobus!

It started on a chilly Winter's day in Stellenbosch when I met up with a cool, calm and collected bride having champers with her bridesmaids while I snapped away at the decor and details. I met Maryke several months before the wedding and on her wedding day she was absolutely radiant :) Once the girls were dressed we proceeded to the church to meet up with the 'manne' and the groom.

We've been featured on the pretty blog!

  Wow what an honour and joy it is to be featured on one of South Africa's top wedding and all-things-pretty sites! When I got the email to be featured my heart started racing and I'm just so happy that it is one of my favourite weddings of the season - I loved everything about Jeanne and Corne's wedding and they truly deserve to have their beautiful day viewed by so many idea hungry brides to be!

Rowena + Jerome | Delaire Graff Estate


Rowena and Jerome surprised their family with an intimate wedding ceremony held at Delaire Graff Estate one beautiful Winter morning and I was there to document it all. When I say surprise I mean Rowena's mom, dad, her brother and his wife were whisked to a secret location at a certain time and had no idea what to expect and had no clue that there was a

Lisa + JJ | Constantia Uitsig

 The above image is one of my favourites from Lisa and JJ's wedding! Classic and romantic. And reminds me so much of them. JJ is a professional rugby player and such a gentle giant and genuinely decent guy and his face was beaming when he saw his bride coming down the aisle. Lisa is involved at the rugby club where JJ played and that's actually

Tabitha's baby bump


So I met up with Tabitha and Stuart at their home near Blouberg beach recently to take some pretty pics of her pregnant belly. And isn't she just such a yummy mummy in her short shorts strolling on the beach with her equally handsome hubby at her side! But seriously these two are such a chilled and down to earth couple and eagerly

It has to be said that these two are just so much fun to be around! And they were game for all my crazy suggestions including standing in traffic, chasing each other, venturing to different places...oh my happy heart :)

I'm on Facebook + Pinterest!!


Okay so it's nothing new, but for those that don't know I like to spread myself out across an array of social media platforms, like my favourites Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

I do put up different content from time to time on my Facebook page so it's worth following and 'liking' what I'm up to over there as well. And I love when clients tag themselves in my photos of them :)

Eric Uys Lighting Workshop 2012

Go to his site to view the pics he took from the workshop,

Irma + Shaun | Lovebirds wedding


This is the wedding of two lovebirds that I know, and they are Irma and Shaun. I think it was only fitting to theme their special day around this and who better than Irma to put her designer touch to the day. She is a very talented graphic designer...view her work here www.irma.moonfruit.com . Most of the details and decor you see in this post is thanks to her :)

Masturah + Abdul | Stellenbosch

When I first met with Masturah and Abdul I could see how in love they were...you know the kind that's pure and sweet between two young people. Which was no different on their wedding day! I met them at Abdul's mothers house where they met his parents for the first time as a married couple which was quite emotional followed by hugs and kisses and

Fransette + Louis | Langebaan


With two people and their love for the sea and outdoors, Fransette and Louis's morning wedding couldn't have taken place anywhere else other than on one of the beautiful beaches of Langebaan. And that's what the Boesmanland Plaaskombuis venue offered them with its amazing views.

some fun in the sun | Velddrift

I've been meaning to blog this for a while and finally found some time to compile it over the Easter weekend :) This shoot is not a shoot at all but some spur of the moment fun with one of my good friends Jeune. The sunlight was coming down warm and gorgeous one December afternoon in the little West Coast town known as Velddrift and all that you see below happened in 30min tops!

Janine + André | Durbanville wedding



This sweet Cape Town couple, now living in Johannesburg, had their wedding reception at the warm and cosy La Masseria in Durbanville. Loved all of Janines details...the shoes! The bouquet! THE DRESS! Rumor has it the dress's lace is imported from overseas and its the same lace used to make Kate Middleton's wedding dress! Nevertheless, she

This wedding was quite special to me because I know the bride personally. We know each other from school and through mutual friends and I had the privilege of shooting her and the love of her life's engagement shoot as well as their wedding! Sam and Botha are such a vibrant couple and have a lot of energy in front of the camera and it was

Irma + Shaun | Cape Town e-shoot

I LOVED doing this engagement shoot with Irma and Shaun in Cape Town the end of last year. We had fantastic light and perfect weather (albeit the heat) and the most breathtaking views the city had to offer! You may remember I've spoken about Irma before...I did a blog post about the save the date invite she sent me here. And it's nearing to their
