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.
Heng and Anita came down to Durban on holiday from Centurion, and since they were newly engaged they decided to have an engagement shoot done. They were staying at a hotel in Umhlanga because they love the beach and wanted photos there too. I met them at the lagoon and we meandered down to the…VIEW IMAGES >>
Since Jess was very young she wanted her wedding to be in a castle, and the colour scheme would be purple. She’d meet her handsome prince who would adore her and they would be betrothed in a small ceremony with those nearest and dearest. Jess’s dream came true when Chris and her were married at Greesleeves at Camelot…VIEW IMAGES >>
I had been looking forward to James & Trisha’s wedding for quite some time, partly because they had their ceremony at the beautiful Renishaw chapel where my neice was also married, and partly because they were a really fun couple to work with on their engagement shoot. The stunning Lynton Hall gardens was the venue…VIEW IMAGES >>
I shot an event for Lord Taverners at the Elangeni Hotel, there were some local sportsmen there including Shaun Pollock and Francois Steyn, as well as other names such as Simon Doull and David O’Sullivan. The aim was to raffle off sporting memorabilia for charity, particularly sporting development for children which is a great cause.…VIEW IMAGES >>
I love shooting at game reserves, whether it’s a wedding or wildlife I just love being in the outdoors with my camera. I have actually done a bit of wildlife photography on a few trips to game reserves around the country including the Kruger National Park. You can see some of my Kruger photos here…VIEW IMAGES >>
Duncan & Taryn live in Australia now, but came home to KZN to get married at the ever beautiful Rain Farm in Compensation, Ballito. I always love visiting game farms, especially to shoot a wedding. I had an extremely bad bout of flu, but I didn’t let it stop me from working as hard as always.…VIEW IMAGES >>
I hadn’t been to St Ives in the KZN Midlands for quite a few years, I even remember that at one stage there were some signs outside saying it was on auction. It has since been taken over and the new owners seem to have spent some money. There is now a magnificent chapel overlooking the dam, the…VIEW IMAGES >>
I spent an hour down on the Zimbali beach with the Fairweather family, capturing all their holiday smiles. It was grandpa’s 70th birthday so they decided to rent a house and all get together, family members came from around South Africa and abroad for the occasion. Children are always the busiest little bodies, so I…VIEW IMAGES >>
I got a phone call from an excited chap by the name of Chad, he told me he was planning to propose to his girlfriend of 9 years Caitlyn. It was going to happen at Sodwana Bay, which I’d been to before a couple of years ago for a wedding. I thought it would be…VIEW IMAGES >>
