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.


Barend & Jorette Wedding – Hartford House

25 June 2015

Hartford House is one of those venues that I can never get tired of shooting at, it’s just stunning everywhere you look. We were blessed with some beautiful golden light for the photo shoot, which had me jumping for joy. We went to go find some horses during the photo shoot but unfortunately there were…


POPCRU Corporate Event – Durban ICC

19 June 2015

POPCRU is the SA police union. I had mixed emotions shooting this event. On one hand it was an honour to be chosen to shoot an event of this magnitude, the sheer scale and enormity of it was mind blowing. On the other hand, it felt like I had been transformed back in to the…


Hosea & Rosa Wedding – Calderwood Hall

15 June 2015

Rosa got in contact with me well in advance before her wedding, she actually hadn’t even booked the venue yet. She had seen the image of Travis & Juanita in the boat and decided she had to have a boat photo too, so she set about finding a venue with a small dam and a…


Tshego & Palisa Engagement – Umhlanga Beach

04 June 2015

Tshego first enquired with me about a couple shoot on the beach, and after a few back and forth emails he dropped the bomb that he was actually going propose during the shoot. Then he dropped another bomb, he wasn’t familiar with the area either so he wanted to know where was a good place to…


Avi & Sheri Engagement – Casuarina Beach

04 June 2015

Avinesh and Shereeze are a really fun couple who came down from Johannesburg to do their engagement shoot at the abandoned house next to Beach Bums, I was skeptical about shooting there since it doesn’t really hold any appeal to me or my style of photography. I like to put people in good light, get…


Lee & Odette Wedding – Under the Marula

03 June 2015

I love weddings that have a rustic twist, there’s just something honest about them. Lee and Odette are two down-to-earth souls who love live music, so Lee had arranged Durban’s premier reggae band The Meditators to play at their wedding as a surprise to Odette. When Lee announced them she was absolutely floored, it was a really…


Pam Golding Conference – Wild Coast Sun

25 May 2015

Earlier this month I spent 3 days down at the Wild Coast Sun shooting the annual Pam Golding conference. I arrived on my birthday with my camera in hand and didn’t really stop shooting until I left, it was full of fun and the delegates all seemed to have an incredible few days. There was…


Florian & Sophia Wedding – Durban Beach

19 May 2015

Florian & Sophia are both from Germany and are here in South Africa to complete their studies in medicine. They had a mid-week elopement on the beach in Durban, they hired me just to shoot the ceremony and some creative photos afterwards. I had no idea Durban had a beach this beautiful, I honestly felt…


Rann & Lauren Wedding – Memoire

18 May 2015

On the 10 February 2014 I received an email from a bride-to-be named Lauren who said she was getting married in March 2015 in Muldersdrift, Gauteng. The venue was going to be Memoire which is known as one of South Africa’s top wedding venues. I replied to her email not really expecting to be booked,…
