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 and build websites for companies in and around Durban as well as family shoots.

I also have a creative agency with my fiancé Ruth. We do advertising and design. You can visit us at colinandruth.com.


Kesendra & Selina Wedding – Collisheen Estate

20 November 2015

Luckily Kesendra and Selina were a dream to work with, because their wedding was the last in a series of about 18 in a row that I had shot without a weekend off. I was starting to feel really burned out and dangerously close to throwing all my camera equipment in the bin to rather…


Baby Beth Newborn Shoot

18 November 2015

I’ve never really claimed to be much of a newborn photographer, when I get an enquiry to do a newborn shoot I would normally pass it on to someone who specialises in newborn photography. I’m not the sort of photographer who looks at other photographers work, so I resorted to doing a google search for…


Kruger National Park – August 2015

11 November 2015

About once a year or so I try find the time to get away and take some photos that don’t contain people with white dresses, this time it was up to the Kruger National Park where we spent a week. We stayed at Lower Sabie Rest Camp which is right on the Sabie River. We had heards…


Clint & Gaynor Wedding – Sica’s Guest House

06 November 2015

When I first met Clint and Gaynor they were quite keen to meet at the estate where I live, called Plantations in Hillcrest. During the meeting they expressed an interest in doing some photos along the main walkway of Plantations, I wondered how it would be possible logistically considering their wedding was going to be…


Darren & Lucy Wedding – Zimbali

02 November 2015

One of my favourite weddings of the year so far is Darren & Lucy’s at the stunning Zimbali Lodge, everything was just perfect. The bride and groom were both easy going and a pleasure to work with, their adorable children were smiling all day, we had a beautiful golden sunset for the photo shoot, and to top…


Darren & Lucy Engagement – Umdloti Beach

26 October 2015

When Darren and Lucy first contacted me about doing an engagement shoot I thought it would be another one like all the others, they also said they were wanting to incorporate some fitness photos to be used for their business interests. I told them that I hadn’t done a fitness shoot before but I’d give it…


Grant & Robyn Wedding – Coastlands Hotel Umhlanga

26 October 2015

Grant and Robyn came out from Perth, Australia to get married in Robyn’s home town of Umhlanga. I only met them on the wedding day so despite not being able to plan anything in advance, the day still went smoothly. We did the photo shoot at the Umhlanga lighthouse at the request of the bridal party,…


Lyle Family – Umhlanga Beach

23 October 2015

Melissa and her family are from Canada, and came out to South Africa to adopt the newest addition to their family. A little boy named Jackson. She mailed me saying they were staying in Umhlanga and wanted a photo shoot to commemorate this landmark in their lives. The only problem was that I was already…


Human Family – Summerveld

Erin came out from overseas for a holiday and decided she wanted to do a family photo shoot while she was here, I suggested we take a spin up to Summerveld near Hillcrest. There’s some lovely wide open spaces and trees which is just perfect for photos, and to top it off we had some…
