Trash-the-Dress / Wayne & Kirst

Some Trash-the-Dress lovin’

To be honest, I haven’t done many of these.  Why not you may ask!  I have no clue.  The are the BEST fun.  After the tension and high energy vibe of the wedding day, the t-the-d is such a brilliant “bring-things-down-to-earth” or soak the daylights out of them, kind of shoot.

Needless to say Kirst and Wayne embraced the trash-the-dress shoot for all it was worth.  The dress (which I’m relieved to say wasn’t really her wedding dress) was pretty trashed, well jolly dirty anyway.  Wayne , clearly a bum man, managed to cop a feel  on every single shoot  (note E-shoot and wedding day).  The fabricator (aka fascinator – and if you don’t know what it is, thats your problem) was also the subject of much humour.  Even Ruby, my Bull Mastiff princess, got in on some of the shots.  Think she was really a tad nervous that Wayne (or Kirst) was drowning especially with the lifting-up-in-the-air with copious amounts of water deluging in the face shots.

In fine form, the day ended with a yummy bottle of bubbles after huge amounts of mirth.

There is a lot to be said for country living.  Well.  I guess I’m not much of a city gal so for me – there’s everything to be said about country life and Clare and her family certainly embody what this is all about.

As well as living with 8 horses, 2 jacks, about 100 endemic dwarf chameleons, the odd cat and who knows what else, Clare grows the most amazing veggies.  If you join her gym class at Fordoun (she’s a real tyrant) you’re more than likely to come home with a gorgeous, fresh, organic head of broccoli (and a very sore body).  I have to say, I’m looking forward to her future crop of asparagus!!!

Its quite clear where this family’s passion lies and it was a complete pleasure to capture them in their home environment.  This is why I particularly enjoy “location-style” shoots as opposed to in studio with flash.  People are generally uncomfortable in front of the camera so it takes awhile to warm up and chill out.  When a family are in their own space its a lot easier to chill and actually enjoy the experience rather than feeling spare and wondering what to do with oneself.

Thanks Kent brood.  In the words of the great non-president:  “I’ll be back!”

KZN Weddings |  Grant & Vera

It was second time around for both Grant and Vera.  They almost made it to the magistrates court but their nearest and dearest wouldn’t hear of it.

I’m so glad they didn’t! Instead close friends and family decided that they too wanted to share in their nuptials so  Granny Mouse Country House in Balgowan was booked.  A truly special  day and a testament to the path they have travelled to get there (which I gather was not the easiest).

Vera’s daughter, Jenna was a major part of the whole affair.   From getting dressed with her Mom, walking with her up the aisle, to the handing over of the rings.

Grant and Vera, the images speak volumes – you make each other laugh and enjoy each others company .  Two warm-hearted, kind and loving people, may your life together be beautiful, peaceful and loving going forward.  It was a privilege being a part of your day.

Thank you for choosing me as your photographer <3

St. Annes Diocesan College {Chanel Dance}

KZN Midlands Photographer – Diocesan College ~ Gr. 10 Chanel Ball pre-drinks

Chiffon, satin, organza and lace. From soft pinks and pastels, blues and lavender to stunning red, teal, orange and emerald green. So it was with the beautiful young ladies of the St Annes 10th Grade.

I have to say, personally, I LOVE the long, elegant style that appears to be the preference in KZN Midlands schools. I’ve seen quite a few high school dance photos where the dresses barely cover bums. For me understated elegance and a chic sense of style beats sexy and sassy any day (at this stage).

The girls were all radiant and Helium balloons and photo booth props added a sense of fun to the evening. Last but least, the paparazzi (i say this with a smile). The proud Papas and pretty Mums who chaperoned their daughters to this particular dance.

I look forward to next year ladies <3<3<3
