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.


Michael & Janine Wedding – Lythwood Lodge

14 October 2015

I had been looking forward to shooting at Lythwood Lodge again, I shot a wedding there about 5 years ago and for some reason hadn’t been back since.

Eden Lassie has such beautiful surroundings, add some great afternoon light to that and a bridal couple and you can’t help but take some beautiful photos.
