Hey Flashers,

Monday kicks off tomorrow, and needless to say I’m not looking particularly forward to it. If it contains a jug of Gin, accompanied by Eggs Benedict, then we’ll talk.

Gavin & Gill’s Wedding

Hey Flashers!

So, my very first wedding! I know, right? Movin’ on up. I was super nervous for obvious reasons… It was my first! I was a virgin weeding tog, however, I had a spectacular day planned and I was even more excited to get home and start editing!

It was a beautiful day and a beautiful location but most of all a beautiful couple. It was just BEAUTIFUL! So without further adieu, take a scroll.

The Friendship Between A Greek & A Jew [Senior Portraits]

Ollo Flashers!!

So I have posted these before but I’ve since upped my game and thought this was the perfect opportunity to show what’s been happening. “The Friendship Between A Greek & A Jew” is no joke. Two of my best friends who happen to be in-fact “Best Friends” put on their Matric Dance dresses to help out a friend of ours who needed help with her makeup portfolio. Nikita has this incredible plot out by Lanseria with long yellow tinged grass, a porch swing stuck in the veld and a naturally distressed hut. These all made for incredible props. We’re at the point in our lives where we’re responsible for making our own fun & this happened to be one of the results that turned up. Alcohol was most definitely NOT involved (Yes.Yes it was!). Don’t be silly ūüėČ

A massive thank you to these two girls for going through the plucking,¬†tweezing¬†and crying in preparation for the day. You’re both beautiful and have the incredible personalities too. Hope you’re both ready for round two coming up this Autumn ūüėČ

Christmas 2012: Winter Wonderland

So it started on the 16th of December. Landed at Heathrow and massively excited to see home and most of all, ecstatic to see snow… Well that was a monumental shut down. After being told that snow is expected on an eleven hour flight from the blistering South African sun there was nothing more rewarding than knowing I could¬†frolic around¬†in snow and get some awesome winter shots. What a perfect photo opportunity, right?! WRONG! No snow. In fact, I was walking London with a t-shirt and jeans…

Besides feeling like I was back in Africa it wasn’t all bad news ūüėČ I hadn’t been back to London in two years and what was worse is that I hadn’t seen Angie in a year. First order of business was to catch up on my English-ness and hit the pub for lunch and of course a beer with my little matey. Although we speak almost everyday, seeing her and hearing her was a complete game changer. Right, so beer and food was sorted and the only rational thing to do next was take a walk down the Thames. London Bridge never gets old! Angie was more excited about The Shard which is apparently now the tallest building in Europe? Impressive for Britain to be fair…

So Monday arrived and Angie had decided to take the Monday off to spend with me around London. Shopping is like eating vegetables. It’s the first thing I do to get it out the way and then I can enjoy the rest of whats left. Once we had done the whole¬†disastrous shopping thing we headed off to Hyde Park for the famous Annual Christmas Spectacle, Winter Wonderland!! With enough Gluhwein,¬†¬†Bratwurst and Beer to go around we had a pretty cool afternoon. Obviously more for the children than anything but nothing was stopping us from going to have a walk around.

Among some of the bazaar attractions, this tree was pretty epic. Based on the fact that it ACTUALLY spoke!! A talking tree! That’s pretty rad to be fair… If you weren’t impressed after seeing this then you’d be pretty blown away with the copious amounts of food and beverage!

Traditional Pasty and chips with some gravy to warm the body up before sunset in Hyde Park. Happened to be a beautiful day in London and the atmosphere was amazing as always. Definitely something you should do on your next trip to London over the festive season!5
