Tandy and Glen - The Hertford Hotel, Lanseria

If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand

Tandy and Glen were married at the Johannesburg South Africa Temple on a glorious Friday afternoon. We had been worried about the rain. The rain had followed us all the way from Springs to Jozi but when we arrived in Parktown the sun was out and I was very relieved. It was a perfect afternoon. It was the first time that I had met Tandy and Glen. I could immediately sense their deep love for each other and I looked forward to photographing them the next day at the Hertford Hotel in Lanseria.
Saturday dawned and another beautiful day greeted us.The hall for Tandy and Glen's reception was a photographer's dream. Light and bright with natural light streaming in from every window.The hall had been decorated by Justine Calteaux and the elegance of the room was straight out of a magazine. Besides the wonder of the venue was something more beautiful, something timeless and precious.....the love I saw as Tandy and Glen said their vows and looked into each other's eyes. Thank you for allowing me the honor of photographing that. It is what it is all about.

As I say goodbye to 2015 I can't help but be thankful for all the lessons learnt and the people that I've met.  It has been a wonderful year.  I can't wait for the continued learning in 2016.


Waiting for baby Ava

Leicha and Nildo are so hospitable and it was wonderful to be welcomed into their beautiful home to photograph their family before sweet baby Ava arrived. The natural light in their home was amazing and the perfect place to photograph a maternity session. Leicha and Nildo you were born to be in front of the camera, thanks for making my job so much easier.
