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.


Poole Family – Umhlanga Beach

03 September 2015

It’s always great meeting up with a family who are full of fun, it always results in great photos. The Poole family were on Holiday and staying at the Breakers Hotel, so we did their photo shoot at the Lagoon area that leads down to the beach. We did some closer up portraits amongst the…


Jason & Jacqui Wedding – Calderwood Hall

01 September 2015

What do you get when you take two educated people who are madly in love, a stunning venue like Calderwood Hall, a dam with a boat and a golden sunset? The answer is the picture below which has to go down as one of my favourites ever. The boat had to be carried from the…


Collisheen Staff & Venue

12 August 2015

One of the wedding venues that I shoot at very often is Collisheen in Ballito, I’ve built up a good working relationship with the wedding co-ordinators so when they needed some photos for their website I was honoured that they chose me to do them, considering they have different photographers there every weekend shooting weddings. They…


Marc & Vicky Wedding – Far Side Farm

06 August 2015

From the moment I met Marc and Vicky for coffee I knew that is was going to be a great wedding, they chose Far Side Farm as their venue which is on the same road as Providence in the KZN Midlands. Before the ceremony they did an exchange of letters which they’d written to each…


Byron & Danté Wedding – Cathedral Peak Hotel

28 July 2015

Byron and Danté chose one of the most picturesque venues in the Drakensburg for their wedding. I always love shooting at Cathedral Peak, the only thing is that I was dreading the two and a half hour drive there and the same drive home at the end of the night. I’ve been shooting there for years and the…


Kishan & Fahiema Wedding – Camp Orchards

22 July 2015

Camp Orchards is a beautiful venue in Hillcrest, and it was a perfect day. Kishan and Fahiema had a hybrid wedding that consisted of a Hindu ceremony and a western style reception, Fahiema wanted to wear her stunning white wedding dress with long vail for her wedding photos. Because of the time constraints we decided that it…


Jason & Justine Wedding – Shalwyn

10 July 2015

If you had told me back in 2011 when Roscoe & Ema first booked me to shoot their wedding in Durban that I would end up shooting another 5 weddings for their circle of families and friends, I would never have believed you. The latest installment is Jason & Justine’s stunning big day which was held…


Ritson Family – Umhlanga Beach

05 July 2015

The Umhlanga beach will always hold a special place in my heart, because my family and I used to go there when I was a child. This was before the big walkway and the pier, before all the development and before all the hotels had locked gates leading on to the beach. Not that I’m…


Nimit & Pamela Wedding – Collisheen Estate

01 July 2015

Nimit & Pamela had a wonderful wedding at Collisheen Estate. The weather was looking quite dubious throughout the morning, then just before the ceremony (which was set up in the garden) it started raining. Everyone rushed inside along with all the staff who were carrying all the items from the stage. Then an hour or…
