Luke, a star in the studio!!

Some photo shoots in the studio are easier than others. Just sometimes the bright lights and all the attention can get to even the best of us, kids or adults. No trouble with that for this young man. Luke, you were a star. Thank you so much for turning up with such personality and attitude. I just hope I have caught it – think so! And a big thank you to mum Bridget, who bought the shoot in an auction for a very worthy cause organised by the fantastic Margaret Stoop of the Upper Highway Info Facebook group.

The beautiful Gillian, who is soon to be a mommy for the first time

This is my advertising image for Future Bride KZN this year. If you book with me before the publication date at the end of February I will offer the special introductory price AND offer a free studio shoot. This could either be for a couple who could use the image for a signing book or wedding stationary, a portrait shoot, or a boudoir shoot maybe, something as a gift for hubby the night before your wedding. You choose. Book before Future Bride KZN hits the  shelves and I will include your photoshoot for free, and give you the discounted price.

Just remember to tell me January 2015 Blog Deal.

I look forward to hearing from you

Did you get engaged at New Year? Booked your photographer yet?

VA_040_070614

New Years Eve can be a very romantic time, the kiss at midnight, dreams and hopes for the year ahead. Not surprisingly it is one of the times when most proposals of marriage are made. Did any of you lucky ladies receive a proposal? He didn’t take it back the next morning did he, the rat? Oh good, congratulations!! So now you have all the fun of planning your wedding – the dress, the venue, your colours, the dress, brides maids dresses, your dress. But wait … you are going to be in the most gorgeous gown, a princess for the day, nobody outshines a bride, and you can have exactly what you want, so how are you going to record that wonderful day? How are you going to save those treasured memories of that most special day?

My advice as a professional photographer is (guess yet?) invest in a professional wedding photographer (of course!), one who has years of experience in the business, who has professional equipment and indemnity, has gained accreditation and qualifications from internationally recognised institutions, has extensive portfolio for you to view and is prepared to listen to your ideas. Don’t let your heart be broken by some guy with a camera who has decided to try his hand at weddings. Or your uncle, the one with the good camera , unless he is a professional photographer, but even then maybe he wants to relax and enjoy the party, after all he goes to a lot of weddings.

I am not saying invest in me (it would be nice, I might be available on your date, and I do have all of the things I listed), I am saying choose a professional wedding photographer. Please. And if your budget can stretch that far, a good quality album. CDs and USBs may go out of fashion – remember Betamax, 8 track cassettes, floppy discs? Your mom will, and you have no way to view them now. But you can still pick up your mom’s wedding album, see how pretty she is, your great grandma who you never met, laugh at your uncle’s crazy hair …

 If you got engaged over the festive season, congratulations! If you are already engaged, congratulations! If he ever gets round to proposing, congratulations!!

And if you are looking for a photographer, I would  love to meet you…
