Hello From Colin
I'm a professional photographer based in Durban. On weekends I work as a wedding photographer, shooting weddings all over South Africa. On weekdays I do commercial photo shoots for companies in and around KZN. I started doing photography in 2006 and have shot hundreds of weddings, companies, events and family portraits.
I also do graphic and website design with my fiancé Ruth, you can see our website at colinandruth.com.
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…READ MORE >>
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…READ MORE >>
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…READ MORE >>
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…READ MORE >>
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…READ MORE >>
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.…READ MORE >>
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…READ MORE >>
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…READ MORE >>
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…READ MORE >>
Stanton and Zenilla had two wedding ceremonies and two photo shoots, the first was a Catholic ceremony and the second was a traditional Hindu ceremony which was held at Coastlands Hotel in Umhlanga. I normally do outdoor photo shoots at sunset, but with the way the day was planned out it wasn’t possible so we…READ MORE >>
