A Look Back: 2012

December 31, 2012

2012: the year of enormous changes. After three years of doing wedding photography in Johannesburg, my husband and I decided to uproot ourselves and move to London; a huge decision not only personally, but also for my business. After all, I was still fairly new on the scene and had just started to get established. Moving countries meant pretty much restarting from the ground up, except of course that this time I had some lovely pictures of my SA couples to convince my new clients to hire me! I want to give a special thanks to Rachel and Geoff and Clare and Ricky, who hired me for their 2012 weddings before I had even set foot in the UK! Your confidence in me meant the world! And, of course, thank you to every other couple who had me shoot their weddings, engagement and anniversary shoots this year, as well as all the wonderful vendors who brought me into their collaborations and allowed me to shoot some amazing styled shoots!

Below is a selection of my favourite moments from the year. And there were a LOT.

Finally, this year seemed to have been the year of the babies for my past couples! I love being Facebook friends with my clients, because then I can see all the pictures of their new family members. :-) So congratulations to Daleen and Aaron on the birth of Lilly, Chiara and David on the birth of Massimo,  Kyra and Nick who are about to welcome their baby at any moment, and Taryn and Marc who have just announced they’re expecting! I’m so happy for all of you – and any of my other past couples that I don’t know about who’ve expanded their families, drop me a line and let me know! :-)

Islington, London Wedding {Morgan & Dan}

December 2, 2012

Morgan and Dan are just the cutest. Morgan is from America, but met British Dan over here, and they now live in London. So this is just part one of their wedding celebration – part two happens next year in Connecticut for their American friends and family! Oooh. Two weddings; how awesome! I wouldn’t have minded doing that. :-)

Part One: London was fantastic. Yes, it rained all day, but it didn’t put a damper on anyone’s enthusiasm, and Morgan and Dan gallivanted happily from location to location under a large polka dot umbrella. My favourite part was doing some of the photos at the pub where they met – The Lexington – where Morgan took a fancy to Dan’s snuggly grey cardigan (which also made an appearance on the day). Then it was off to St Chad’s near King’s Cross for a fab evening reception – what a stunning venue!

Thanks to Heline Bekker for 2nd shooting for me on this one.
