Hello and Welcome To My Blog
I'm a professional photographer based in Durban. I've been shooting weddings since 2010, generally in KZN but sometimes in other parts of the country too. On weekdays I do commercial photo shoots for companies in and around Durban as well as family portrait shoots.
I also have a creative agency with my fiancé Ruth. We do websites, design and advertising. You can visit us at colinandruth.com.
Dylan and Lara were married in June at Providence in the KZN Midlands, it’s one of my favourite venues because it’s just so beautiful. It’s impossible to take a bad photo there, and to make it even better, Dylan and Lara were such fun. Lara couldn’t stop smiling and laughing all day, it made for…VIEW IMAGES >>
Tracy and Antonino had a nautical themed wedding, largely because they met whilst both working on a ship. Antonino is Italian and was blessed to have family and friends fly out for the wedding, Tracy is South African and her parents have a home at Zimbali. We had a magnificent sunset which greeted us just…VIEW IMAGES >>
It was so fun shooting the wedding of my good friends Darrell and Jess, it’s quite different to most of the weddings I shoot which are for couples I only meet either on the wedding day or maybe once before the wedding. It was a close-knit affair with our other friends Carryn from Desire 2…VIEW IMAGES >>
I’ve been wanting to blog this wedding for a while now but I’ve just been way too busy with so much editing. James and Sarah had a beautiful wedding in April, the ceremony was at the Maris Stella school chapel close to where Sarah grew up and the reception and photo shoot was at Talloula…VIEW IMAGES >>
On the 27th of March last year I got an enquiry from Bronwyn, she explained that she is originally from South Africa but now lives in the USA. She was travelling to KZN to visit family with her new fiancé Ty and wanted to do an engagement shoot. So we made the arrangements and did…VIEW IMAGES >>
It was such a pleasure shooting Rickaal and Melissa’s wedding, these are two kind and genuine people who were surrounded by a lot of love on their wedding day. We had a great bit of light for their creative photo shoot, and we took a drive to a forest down the road too for something…VIEW IMAGES >>
This was such a great wedding to shoot, any couple who chooses Thunderstruck by AC/DC as their entrance song to their reception is number one in my book! Greg and Melissa are such a fun couple who really enjoyed their relaxed wedding day. The weather was perfect, the ceremony and speeches were moving and emotional.…VIEW IMAGES >>
I’ve always loved shooting weddings on game reserves, not only because I enjoy doing a bit of wildlife photography occasionally but also because of all the wide open spaces and the feel of being out in the African wilderness. It’s even better when it’s close to home, Tala is only about 30 minutes away from…VIEW IMAGES >>
Today is a bumper wedding post. I shot two pre-functions plus the actual wedding for Manisha and Sam, the first was the Mendhi which was held at Manisha’s family home in Simbithi followed by the Hurdee at the Square in Umhlanga. Generally the sort of people who have the bigger and fancier weddings aren’t particularly the…VIEW IMAGES >>
When a couple comes home from the rainy UK to get married in sunny South Africa, the last thing they want is rain on their wedding day. Unfortunately this is exactly what happened, but Shaun and Rachel didn’t let it bother them at all. They had a wonderful wedding despite the odds, we did a…VIEW IMAGES >>
