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.

When a couple comes home from the rainy UK to get married in sunny South Africa, the last thing they want is rain on their wedding day.

Stanton and Zenilla had two wedding ceremonies and two photo shoots, the first was a Catholic ceremony and the second was a traditional Hindu ceremony which was held at Coastlands Hotel in Umhlanga.

I was called in to a company called Chilli Source to do their corporate staff photos. Being a design and advertising company, it was important to push the creativity.
