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.
Kangelani Lodge are redesigning their website and were in need of updated images, so they called me in to take photos. We had to postpone the shoot originally because they had guests checking in at the last minute. I took photos of the exterior from the front and back, pool, bar, reception, lounge, dining hall and…VIEW IMAGES >>
I met James and Sarah at the crack of dawn for their engagement shoot, we decided that Summerveld was going to be a great spot for it’s wide open spaces and beautiful areas. What we didn’t count on though was all the racehorses making their way to the race track for their morning races. We…VIEW IMAGES >>
I met Marno and Sunette early in the morning on the Umhlanga beach, I was hoping for a lovely golden sunrise which unfortunately never arrived. Luckily this couples natural interaction with eachother was enough to get some great shots, regardless of the light. Marno was very shy in front of the camera, Sunette said she…VIEW IMAGES >>
Denver and Sam have only been together for a short time, but knew they were right for each other from the start.

It was an intimate ceremony with just those…VIEW IMAGES >>
Exactly nine weeks after I shot James & Trisha’s wedding at Lynton Hall, I was back again to shoot Neil & Keshani’s big day. It’s amazing that even though it was the same venue, same setup and basically same time of year, it was also completely different. Photos that I took which came out brilliantly…VIEW IMAGES >>
On the same day that I shot Lee & Odette’s maternity shoot below, I did a family shoot for the La Bella’s at Summerveld. This was a really fun family who were full of laughs, they didn’t mind jumping around and lying on the grass. I love the fresh air and wide open spaces of…VIEW IMAGES >>
It’s always such an honour when a couple whose wedding I shot gets in contact again for another shoot. I remember Lee & Odette’s wedding as if it were yesterday, they had a stunning day at Under the Marula in Shongweni, and they also had the great Durban reggae band The Meditators perform live for…VIEW IMAGES >>
Jody & Chevaughne got married under a large tree on the bank of the Dudley Pringle dam in Tongaat, which is very near Ballito. The venue that is fortunate enough to be so conveniently situated is Eagles Cry. They have a few rooms in which the bride and groom can get ready too, which makes…VIEW IMAGES >>
A corporate birthday party for Aberdare Cables who have international business concerns, complete with a cake cutting. There were speeches by a lot of the leaders of the company, and an MC who was hilarious. They hired the excellent group The Muses to perform who were excellent, they incorporated the theme tune to Game of Thrones into…VIEW IMAGES >>
