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 & Anthea Wedding – Cathedral Peak Hotel

14 July 2016

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…


Tumi & Rethabile Maternity – Umhlanga Beach

24 June 2016

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…


Barend & Elserie Engagement – Amanzimtoti Beach

21 June 2016

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…


Darrin & Sarusha Wedding – Zimbali

08 June 2016

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…


James & Trisha Engagement – Umhlanga Beach

25 May 2016

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…


Robin & Sharon Wedding – The Estuary Hotel

24 May 2016

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…


Nathi & Bandile Wedding – Collisheen Estate

12 May 2016

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…


Vikash & Tashika Wedding – Zimbali

06 May 2016

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…


Glodina Textiles Company Shoot

27 April 2016

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…
