Lourens and Shelley’s wedding day started off at the Palazzo, Monte Casino, where Shelley and Lourens got ready, separately of course, Shelley’s mom had booked a room at the Palazzo especially for Shelley to get ready in, it was a gift to her daughter. We were then also allowed to use the hotel interior and grounds to do bridal portraits, groom and groomsman portraits, which worked out perfectly. It’s a really stunning hotel, with stunning interior and beautiful grounds, a wedding photographers dream. We then moved on to the actual wedding venue, which was Da Vincenzo, situated in Kyalami, perfect for small, intimate weddings. Lourens and Shelley were an absolute dream to work with, and I really enjoyed their energy. This was definitely one of the most relaxed weddings that I’ve shot, and I absolutely loved every minute.

I haven’t posted in a while, although I have been rather busy with boudoir shoots, the thing is I’ve needed to wait for my clients to give me permission to post some of the photos from their boudoir shoots. Here are a few images from a vintage boudoir shoot I did a little while ago with Jana, a stunning client, that really emulated the vintage pinup style of yesteryear, we had so much fun with her shoot. This vintage boudoir photo shoot was done in a lovely boudoir studio situated in Joburg, its perfectly suited for a stunning boudoir photo session. Posted with permission from my client. Remember ladies, I will never post boudoir images without your permission, I respect my clients privacy.

A small collection from some of my favourite boudoir shoots that I’ve done recently. I absolutely love my ‘job’. That amazing feeling when a client sees their images for the first time, and they look at you and say, “OMG, Is that really me? I can’t believe how beautiful I am!” Yes! That is you, and you are beautiful… you just needed to be reminded of that, we all do. Phenomenal women…that’s who we are.

Here are a few preview pics from a lovely French styled Pin-Up shoot that I did for the Retrospective ladies at a stunning venue called French Toast in Hartbeespoort. I loved the venue, loved the gorgeous dresses, and these ladies rocked their shoot.

Bettie B is in to the full swing of things again, and so I thought I would share a few images from a recent Rockabilly Pin-Up shoot done with the gorgeous Ashleigh, at Pretville in Hartbeespoort Dam. The shoot was done as a birthday gift for hubby, needless to say he absolutely loved it, and Ash had an absolute ball during your shoot.

Claude recently celebrated his 50th birthday in style, at The Hilton in Sandton, surrounded by good friends and family. It really was a lovely evening, and quite evident form all the moving speeches, that Claude is loved and admired greatly by those close to him.
I recently did a personal branding photography session with Tatjana from Peak Meditation in Hartbeespoort, where Tatjana runs her practice from. We had a wonderful shoot, starting at the stunning Leopard Lodge with some relaxed lifestyle portraits, and of course a few meditation posed shots, the view from Leopard Lodge is really stunning. We then did the second part our shoot at Die Ou Pastorie, just down the road, where we concentrated on a more formal, business look for Tatjana. I loved spending the day with Tatjana, she is such a lovely person, loved her energy.
Have a look at Tatjana’s meditation blog, there’s loads of information on the different coaching, and facilitation that Tatajana offers, especially Facilitated Contemplation. I recently did a one on one session with Tatjana, and it was truly wonderful.
My Personal Branding photography packages, are basically dynamic, interesting, creative and relevant images for use on your website, blog, social media platforms, publicity and media. I usually do the shoot on location, depending on your brief, I don’t offer the usual stiff, clinical, corporate head-shots as personal branding photography is specific to your brand and offers an alternative to the usual head-shot. I have just recently added this product to my brand, so I’m offering clients the package at an introductory rate. Please contact me for more details. firstname.lastname@example.org

I recently did an Old Hollywood Pin-Up shoot under my new brand, Bettie Bombshell Photography, with the glamorous Bettie Flash. Besides being a Pin-Up model, Bettie Flash is also a keen blogger and fitness mom, so naturally she blogged about her shoot with me, read all about it here;
Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to shoot with Bronwyn Stewart from Bettie Bombshell Photography. We went out to French Toast in Harties for the shoot because of the quaint little Paris themed set, complete with Pont des Arts and Eiffel Tower. If that isn’t exciting enough, wait until you hear the best part – my wardrobe is older than I am.
Since going platinum blonde, I’ve been called Marilyn Monroe an awful lot. So it was kind of fitting that I channeled the blonde bombshell when I got in front of the camera again for the first time in a year. A lot has happened over the space of this year and I think that I’ve finally discovered who I am. Since turning 30, things have really started to pick up for this Bettie. I’ve been strict with my training and diet, so I’ve started to drop weight again, which is the goal! The weight loss and overall confidence kick in the squat butt inspired me to try on a dress that I have treasured since I was 17 years old. As an avid collector of vintage evening dresses, this one in particular was the dress that started it all.
Made for my grandmother using her measurements, this 1950’s original is a skin-tight, LBD that would have knocked the socks off of my grandfather when he saw her in it. It was an unreal honour to be able to wear this dress for my shoot with Bron. Seeing as how this little number isn’t exactly a spring chicken and is pushing 60. The fact that it is still in such amazing condition is just a testament to how carefully I take care of my clothing. Yes, that was a shameless brag.
The only hiccup is that two teeth from the zip have fallen off, but that can easily be replaced once I find someone who I trust enough to handle the dress for me. It must be pointed out that while the bust and hip of this dress fits like it was made for me, my waist is much smaller than my Gran’s was, so there is a bit of ruffling around that area. Still, I have my Gran’s great rack and knockout curves, so who cares about a little ruffle?
Bronwyn, as always, was a total dream to shoot with and I was absolutely floored with the shots that we managed to get in just 20 minutes. Oh, yes… we only had 20 minutes to shoot and numerous challenges of curious tourists and visitors wanting in on the action. I mean you can’t really blame their curiosity, it isn’t every day that you stumble across a Marilyn-esque pin-up girl in Hartebeespoort dam. Eventually we roped in my Paul to hold up a light reflector to help capture this dreamy glow that Bron managed to create for me.
I got to have a taste of French Noir glam and felt like a million bucks doing it. Plus, I’ve debunked the old “Blondes have more fun” saying, it is totally true.
