44 Stanley

Engagement Shoot

E-session

Natalie + Stuart

44 Stanley is Joburg’s best kept secret.

The 44 Stanley site was once a series of industrial 1930′s buildings, and has been developed into a collection of specialty boutiques, foodie stops and design studios. Meander through the shady arcades and courtyards to savor the trees, architecture and gorgeous fare; from food, clothing and toys to antiques and interiors. The ambiance is a relaxed, friendly and refreshing mix of quintessential Johannesburg elements.

Adele + Tony

Engagement Shoot

Meeting up with Adele and Tony at the St John’s College in Johannesburg was a fantastic experience. Walking the corridors of this Herbert Baker designed masterpiece, reminded me of the rich heritage we as South Africans have.   Today is tomorrows’ history. Shooting for this lovely couple felt a little like preserving pieces of their very special story. The photographic medium is an expert in capturing fragments of time often missed. I’m presenting 15 Frames in the life of Adele + Tony, already part of that which we call history…

Elida + Louw

Engagement Shoot

Shooting for Elida + Louw at Eau-La-La Art & Trends Café on a very hot South African day was beyond epic. Their easygoing attitude reflects in every picture.  In 3 months’ time I will be shooting their wedding. Happiness!! This was also the first Couple shoot where I had the Canon 6D on location. Great little machine.

Lawrence + Michelle

Engagement Shoot

Being a South African people often assume that you enjoy warm weather. Yes, that is partly true. As long as the temperature doesn’t rise above 26 degrees Celsius that is. I rather prefer cooler weather to shoot in…for that matter, live in, breathe in and sleep in. 34 Degrees just doesn’t cut it for me. But, shooting one of the hottest couples of 2012 definitely gets me excited. Lawrence + Michelle planned a very exciting afternoon as part of their couple shoot. Playing bowls to jumping around a rooftop of a Johannesburg building were involved.  We had fun. It was hot 🙂

Jon + Juanita Revisited

Engagement Shoot
 
For many their new years resolutions are forgotten. Promises broken. Back to the old ways…
2013 will be the same mundane struggle to survive for many.
The year of the sheep. Following blindly.
Shooting for Jon + Juanita in 2012 was one of many highlights. They inspire me to live fearlessly. To abandon the sheep mentality.
May 2012 remind us of the good times gone by and 2013 embody the amazing times ahead.
Oh, all images were taken with a 50mm. Nice little personal challenge to use only one prime 🙂

Tracey + Milos

Engagement Shoot

I met up with Tracey and Milos at a lovely lake near their home. Dark clouds were filling the sky as we hoped for a magnificent sunset. That did not happen but these two were so easy to work with that we made our own “sun filled” afternoon. Just before big drops started falling from the sky we had one last chance to create a beautiful silhouette with the last rays peeping through some clouds. As I will be shooting for Tracey and Milos on their wedding in a few weeks, it was great to get to know them a little better. Here are some favorites from the weekend.
