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.
Junaid and Anthea have already been married for 20 years and have two grown up children, but they never actually had a wedding back then. They dreamed of one day having a proper wedding in a beautiful venue in the Drakensburg, and it was an honour for me to be the photographer. The day started out…VIEW IMAGES >>
Tumi and Rethabile are a wonderful couple who came down to Umhlanga on holiday, and decided they’d like to have a maternity shoot done while they’re here. I met them on the Umhlanga beach and we had a bit of fun, we chatted and got on really well. They were smiling from ear to ear…VIEW IMAGES >>
I met Barend and Elserie at the crack of the morning on the Amanzimtoti beach, we were so fortunate to have a wonderful golden sunrise for the first half of their engagement shoot. We splashed around and had some great fun on the beach. Then after a double cappuccino and a giant muffin we went…VIEW IMAGES >>
Darrin and Sarusha’s wedding was great, I always love the colours and the atmosphere at Hindu weddings and when it’s held at a stunning venue like Zimbali it can only result in a wonderful day. Sarusha has a very kind nature and a bright smile, and is always up for a bit of adventure. They…VIEW IMAGES >>
I met James and Trisha at the crack of dawn at the Umhlanga beach Lagoon, I was hoping we were going to get some lovely sunrise light and I wasn’t disappointed. The golden light shone from behind the trees in all it’s splendour while I shot away as this lovely couple were laughing and talking. We then…VIEW IMAGES >>
Robin and Sharon came out to South Africa from London where they met and live, Sharon is from KZN and Robin is British. It was a wonderful intimate celebration of love between two people who are from opposite sides of the planet. A good bunch of their friends brought their beards from the UK to celebrate…VIEW IMAGES >>
I was looking forward to Nathi and Bandile’s wedding since their engagement shoot, because this is a couple who like to have good fun. Bandile wore two dresses which were both very elegant and stylish, she has great taste. I knew their wedding was going to be magical, especially at a venue like Collisheen who…VIEW IMAGES >>
Vikash & Tashika both got ready for their wedding in the same room at Zimbali Lodge, they just closed the interleading door between them. I was quite surprised to see that when I’d finished doing some photos with Vikash and then went over to Tashika, she was already in her dress and just about ready…VIEW IMAGES >>
It’s been a while since I posted a shoot that hasn’t been a wedding or at least wedding related. I also do corporate photography during the week, and the Glodina shoot was a typical day at a company for me. My main focus was the staff portraits which took most of the morning, then when those were…VIEW IMAGES >>
