Terence & Melissa Engagement – Umhlanga Beach

By Colin Browne | 22 March 2017

Melissa and Terence were such a fun-loving couple to shoot, full of smiles and laughs. It always makes my job much easier to capture natural moments when I don’t need to prompt them and crack silly jokes to get reactions. I asked them to please be on time for their photo shoot in order to…

Bicycles are popular items when it comes to wedding décor, I often see them leaning against a tree or at the the reception entrance, they usually have baskets of flowers or chalk boards attached. Sometimes couples bring them to engagement shoots to have some fun with. Darrell & Jess however had a very good reason…

I met James and Sarah at the crack of dawn for their engagement shoot, we decided that Summerveld was going to be a great spot for it’s wide open spaces and beautiful areas. What we didn’t count on though was all the racehorses making their way to the race track for their morning races. We…

I met Marno and Sunette early in the morning on the Umhlanga beach, I was hoping for a lovely golden sunrise which unfortunately never arrived.

Ty & Bronwyn Engagement – Thompsons Bay

By Colin Browne | 12 April 2016

There’s nothing quite like driving along the N2 to the sunrise engagement shoot, and looking out the car window to see a completely clear sky. It’s times like that when I have to celebrate with a hearty fist pump because I know we’re going to have the best light. I met Bronwyn and Ty on…

A couple of weeks before Brett and Tyla were coming on holiday to Umhlanga, Brett mailed me saying that he was planning to propose to Tyla and that he’d like me to capture the moment. Of course it meant that I would have to hide out and shoot it without Tyla knowing, as if I was…
