Samantha and Zain Engagement Photo Shoot 23 December 2018

What an incredible day it was photographing Samantha and Zain’s engagement shoot, They took my three style package which includes a casual look then a more edgy fashion magazine look and the final look is in the evening, smart evening wear. The package also includes hair and makeup done by a professional and comes with a A4 Landscape 30 pg engagement album.

So for the first look we shot very casual on the beach in the morning at Umhlanga and the second look in the late afternoon on the point in Durban. The third and final look was done in and around the lovely Waterfront Hotel on the point in the evening.

I want to say a very big thank you to Sandra from Makup By Sandra for doing such an incredible job on the makeup for Samantha, she looked stunning for her engagement shoot.

A very big thank you to Bianca Warren who very kindly gave us two outfits for the second and third look for Samantha’s engagement, she looked so elegant in them.

And finally to the Waterfront Hotel for agreeing to let us take some photos in and around the hotel.

Samantha and Zain you were both incredible and your chemistry is undeniable, I can not wait for your wedding day at the Oyster Box next year.

I love it when clients are willing to take risks and put their trust in me to make it happen. Well lets just say the shoot was a great success and she said yes!

Al & Matt Wedding 26 May 2018

Al & Matt married each other on the 26 May 2018 at the most beautiful location down the south coast of Durban at Umngazi River Bungalows. The friendliness of the staff and management at Umngazi just made the stay and the whole experience so memorable. I know Umngazi holds a special place in the couples heart as they holiday at Umngazi with family for many years, Alexander has been coming to Umngazi as a child with her parents for many years, so to have the wedding there was just so special for her and you could see they were like part of the Umngazi family. 

For me it was an absolute pleasure to capture Al and Matt special day and to see the love and bond they have together is just magical. Thank you Al and Matt for giving me the privilege of being your photographer, it will be a wedding i will remember forever.
