Thabisi & Linda

Thabisi and Linda got married in the beautiful area of Jozini at the Jozini Tiger Lodge - Wow what amazing views of the Jozini dam and the wall. The wedding was beautiful and the weather was nice and hot right up until the end when we had rain, luckily, by then we were all in the reception.

Leonore & Ettian

Olenka & James

Olenka and James got engaged just before immigrating to the UK. So too make sure all thier friends did not miss out, they had an engagement party in style at the Fish & Wine Company at Design Quarter. Lots of fun was had by everyone!

Wow cannot believe it has been a couple of months already since I posted a blog. Beyond photography joined up with CODP and did a few shoots for Help Portrait late last year. Help Portrait is an international organization to give back to the community. Photographers around the world take pictures of anyone who would not normally afford such luxury. In a world where many of us take photographs for granted and have a cell phone with a camera in our pocket daily, document whatever we like and upload it the same day to Face Book and email to our friends. For some it is the first family portrait ever and some children are 10 years old and it is the first time they see what they look like as they have no mirrors and have never seen a picture of themselves. What an amazing time it was. I met so many wonderful people who have so little material things and yet so filled with faith and love.  Unfortunatly to protect those we photographed we cannot upload any photographs to the web :) .

We also exhibited at the Oakfield Bridal Show, what a beautiful weekend, luckily the rain stayed away for most of the time so everyone was able to enjoy the weekend in the country. We will be exhibiting at the Bridal Indaba on the 12th and 13th Feb, so come visit us there.

On other news we were recently awarded our Associateship membership in the Professional Photographers of South Africa.

 I will definatly be uploading some of our recent weddings later today. So please check back soon.

I wish you all a wonderful week!
