Lente l Baby Shoot l Earlham Park, Norwich

My friends Jaco and his wife, Lizelle, was keen for me to take photographs of their baby niece - when Jaco's  brother,Rudi, and sister in-law, Annemie visited from South Africa.  Jaco and  Lizelle  arranged for me to meet them to photograph 8 month old Lente (her name  means 'Spring' in Afrikaans) in Earlham Park. Lente came ready for action - all smiles, giggles and wonderful baby expressions!

Featured Couple Shoot - This Charming Wedding Blog

Imagine my surprise and delight when I was contacted by Danielle from This Charming Wedding Blog after she found the blog I did on Katie & Adam's Couple Shoot online. She wanted to feature my work on her blog! This was a first for me, I've never submitted work before, never-mind someone actually finding me of their own accord! A big thanks (and a hug) to Danielle - you can view the featured couple shoot here, and while you are there have a look around!

Kat & Peter's Wedding l Chelmsford

Kat & Peter got married near Chelmsford in Essex, with a beautiful barn reception on Elms Farm. I had the opportunity to second shoot for photographer Michelle-Joubert Martin (which happens to be a fellow South-African!).

Kat & Peter met when Peter interviewed Kat for a job...needless to say, she got the job and the rest is history. The wedding was very intimate with most decorations, details and even the cake made by the bride, her mom, and other family members respectively. This was one of those weddings where, even though I had never met Kat and Peter before, by the time the night ended it felt like I was saying goodbye to family (I even got a kiss and hug to prove it!)

Kat and Peter was so much fun to photograph as well, as they were absolutely smitten, and they were not shy to prove it :)

Sarah & Scott's Wedding l Norwich

This year I had the privilege of shooting my first few weddings as second shooter to some  amazing photographers.My first wedding of  the season was with (the awesome) Jemma from JMA Photography , when we shot  Scott & Sarah's wedding in April. While Jemma headed off to take pictures of Sarah getting ready at Sprowston Manor, I was left (i.e thrown in the deep end) to trend to 'the boys'.  
We then headed for the ceremony at a church in Brundall near Scotts family home, and then headed for the reception venue -  a marquee on the majestic groungs of Hockering House. Sarah & Scott had paid so much attention to detail - from flip flops in a basket at the door (so ladies could rest their aching feet!), to the most yummy sweet table and they even had special wooden letters with 'Mr & Mrs ' designed for the Top table. 
Ps. you definitely want to check out the cake!
