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! :-)

A Vintage Tea Party Wedding at Orleans House {Chloe & Emma}

April 17, 2012

 

When the lovely Shell de Mar asked me if I’d like to come along and run the photobooth at a pretty tea-party-themed wedding, my answer was “heck yes!”, of course! While I didn’t attend the ceremony or couple shoot, I had plenty of time before the guests arrived to take photos of the decor, and when you see these pictures you’ll understand why I was so excited about that! Maryanne and her crew from Jam and Tea did an incredible job dressing up Orleans House’s stable reception room to within an inch of its life, with vintage teacups, bunting, and tasty treats coming together to create a tea party that would make the Mad Hatter proud. The whole event was just vintage girly chic, and when I saw Chloe in her 1950s-inspired dress with a full pink petticoat, and Emma in her elegant, Old Hollywood-inspired gown, I understood why. Two brides in wedding dresses = a doubly-excited Kat. And I get pretty excited about wedding dresses at the best of times.

So here are some pics of the swoonworthy prettiness:

Invitation to the Wedding

February 19, 2010

I love it when my couples give me an invitation to their wedding. It’s like a little extra piece of the wedding I can get excited over, and photograph! I love seeing the different styles and ideas that people come up with, too.  There’s no limit to the fun you ca have with your invites!

When I did Jade and Craig’s engagement shoot, they gave me this gorgeous felt hand-crafted invitation, which went so well with their heart-themed, laidback wedding.

And on Monday when I met up with Kate, my bride for tomorrow’s wedding (which, by the way, is going to blow your socks away :-)) she gave me their elegant black and white invitation in a fun red envelope. I love the way I can just see the style of their wedding in it!
