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! :-)

Editorial Bridal Shoot at Shepstone Gardens

I see a lot of people finding my blog by searching for Shepstone Gardens, so I thought I’d share a few more pics I’ve taken at this gorgeous venue on the edge of Houghton and Orange Grove. A few years ago it was quite an unknown venue, but even now that it’s becoming more popular it still has that secret garden, fairytale feeling that makes it so magical. Not to mention one of the most beautiful wedding chapels in the world!

First up, the beautiful Cat (and no, she’s not a professional model!)

More to come! It’s been crazy over here at chez Kat, and I have tons of sessions to edit, but these were already done so I figured I’d throw them at the blog quickly! :-)

Behind the Scenes of the March issue of Splendid Affairs Magazine

March 5, 2010

This month, we took our models and dresses to the gorgeous Memoire in Muldersdrift! Here’s a little behind the scenes action to whet your appetites for this month’s issue!

Behind the Scenes of the February Issue of Splendid Affairs Magazine

January 28, 2010

And if that title isn’t self-explanatory, I don’t know what is. :-) Last week I got together with Eve of Splendid Affairs, Sam from Lashline, and two beautiful girls, Cat and Zindre, at the AMAZING Shepstone Gardens, and photographed the heck out of over a dozen gorgeous wedding dresses. I was in my element with all the different styles and hairdos, not to mention the seventeen million places you can photograph at Shepstone Gardens.

The magazine will be out in early February, but here’s a look at some of what went on behind the scenes:

Just a sneak peek of goodness to come. :-) It was threatening rain the entire day, and in fact it did come down while the make-up was being done, but then it kindly let up for us to do our thing. This isn’t the first time that’s happened to me at Shepstone. There must be a kind of magic there.

Here are a few of the photos I took, but that we ended up not using in the magazine. I love them, though!
