Another early morning start! That seems to be the norm lately, but well worth it when you get to meet amazing people and you shoot some amazing results. Julian and Helen decided on a backdrop of where it all started for them, Sandton! My first time to this part of Jo'burg with my camera and hopefully won't be my last. With all the modern architecture and the inviting view it is a perfect way to express these two and their background! I can't wait for their wedding later this year!!

I had such an incredible time with these two! After crawling out of a warm Saturday bed to brave start this early morning I was pleasantly put into overdrive when shot after shot turned out to be more special than the last. Sivu and Lester's unique charisma is magnetic and you are drawn into their extremely mellow but excitable charm. They have a relaxed chemistry but not one that they take for granted. Lester is the left foot to Sivu's right and while they are two very independent souls who can hop around alone they choose to be together and walk their adventure!

A lovely young couple I'm helping Cowley Photography with. We did their shoot on a slightly gloomy but still very warm morning. An incredibly in love pair with tons of enthusiasm and keen for adventure! We took a mini-hike through the man-made pathways that WSBG offers and after all the rain we've been having, everything is so green and luscious it wasn't difficult find the most incredible archways and greenery for a back drop! Can't wait for their wedding!

We shot Rory and Roxy's engagement shoot at the very beautiful Toadbury Hall. Under the guise of a threatening cloud bank that seemed roll down and hone in on our fun, we still managed to have an incredible time! The couple are so down to earth and incredibly generous with each other. Their chemistry seems to come so easy. Their connection seems to happen so easily but at the same time you can see the bond is strong and grounded. Even when the rain started to fall, nothing phased them!

What can I say about these two. Another morning shoot and Sunday sleep-in that missed its fruition, but so incredibly worth it. Kerryn and Kelly have got a relationship that you can't really compare. Along with their two pre wedding kids, they are practically a family a thousand years old. You rarely found two people who are so comfortable around each other that they constantly look for an opportunity to enjoy themselves by just being there with each other.
Their two little fur babies were definitely a handful, but in a good way. They kind of broke the ice for their nerves in the beginning....
Photographers tend to not keep normal hours. Sometimes its in our favour and sometimes we have to brave some early windy and cold mornings to beat the sun. Luckily enough I had Kelly and Steve to share my time with. We started off our 6 am shoot at the very old but not forgotten Reefsteamers Depot in Germistion. Rich in steam engine history it almost looks like a graveyard for old carraiges and overworked engines. It really is magic for a photog with so many different areas to abuse!
Hats off to Kelly who had to brave the very chilly winds in her very summery outfit. However we managed...
