Krystal, Paul and I got together in what felt like the second hottest day of the year. The hottest day was over 40 degrees... so we will settle with second hottest. And on this (second) hottest day, Krystal and Paul managed to pull it together and posed prettily under a hot bus shelter and in an even hotter stable. Despite the heat we came up with some totally magical photos - and even managed to sneak in a shot in support of movember :)
I have to say (again) how amazingly blessed I am to have clients like these two. Fun, outgoing, a little crazy, and completely down to earth. Totally looking forward to the wedding guys :) 8 sleeps and counting!

Singa Lodge was gracious enough to allow us to use their premises for this engagement shoot - and all I can says is that it is gorgeous! I would have loved to snap away at the rooms and the amazing details, but there was something more important to photograph :)
Davene and Neal were such a blast, and even though the shoot started quite late (and the skies turned overcast), we still made the best of the light we had and didn't let PE weather stop us.
Thanks for an amazing shoot guys! I am truly looking forward to your big day... let the countdown begin xxx

Wow wow wow is all I can say about this kitchen tea. It was so creative and such amazing idea. By the time I arrived, the ladies had all settled into scrapping and being creative at Scrapbook Nook in Walmer. Their mandate was to each produce a page with a recipe of their choice and a photo of themselves. All the recipes then got compiled into one album which Rolecia will (I am sure!) cherish and use often in her new life with Leon :)
The small bakery/cafe on premises delivered gorgeous cupcakes, madeleines, and other yummy goodies for everyone to tuck into. So fun, laughter, and good food was the order of the day.

Waaaaay back when I photographed Benjamin and Georgina, Charlotte and I took some time after the shoot to do portraits in her old wedding dress. It was so peaceful in her garden, and the twins were munching on lunch so we had a decent amount of time to spend on the photos... and they are just too beautiful not to share!

The 2011 Worldwide Photo Walk was set to be held on 02 October, and I was privileged enough to be leading the walk. The route was planned out, kms measured, city council on alert, letters printed, name tags sorted... and then the heavens opened and it rained. Rained I tell you!
So, along with the few people who did turn up on that cold and squishy morning, a decision was made to head on down to The Boardwalk to mess around in the rain and have some early morning Wimpy coffee.
Even though I was tasked with 'taking photos of the photo walkers', I managed to take a few photos of my own :) Justin was there to support and help out. With nothing much to do, he then became my puddle jumper. Judith also whipped out a super cool umbrella and became 'super umbrella model'.
All in all, it was fun to hang out with like-minded people who are passionate about photography and don't mind waking up at 06h00 on a Sunday morning to play in the rain :)
I have started a group called PE Photowalkers on Facebook. If you want to join on future walks that we plan, please join the group :)

Anke and Altus rocked this shoot. We had such fun together, and I must say that it is one of the prettiest shoots I have worked on thus far, so I am extremely proud of it!
We started the shoot off in Central, and then headed on down to the beachfront for some good old ice-cream and fun in the setting sun. By the time we were done, the weather had turned and the sky was beautifully dark and ominous.
To Anke and Altus, thanks for being so much fun! I can't wait for your wedding :)
