Autumn shades

I loved shooting this warm Autumn shoot with Aisha Baker .. the lighting was beautiful, soft and dappled. Aisha’s hat was the perfect scrim to soften the light on her face… Thanks for a beautiful shoot as always, Aisha! XOXO @tegansmithphotography

Alisa

Alisa found me on instagram a little while ago and booked me for a shoot while she visited Cape Town all the way from America. She was celebrating her fitness journey as well as her experience in our beautiful city. She wanted to shoot somewhere with a view — what better location could we have…

Wet Marble with @kimlynsisam

Kimlyn and I met up to shoot a creative collaboration. I received my vinyl flat lay backdrops recently and decided to use it as a backdrop for portraits instead. Kimlyn’s makeup look matched the background perfectly! I wanted to add something a little more interesting to the images, so I took a piece of glass…

Vic Falls – Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls – also known as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” – “the smoke that thunders” is one of the most beautiful holiday destinations I have visited. The day we arrived we went to walk The Falls (tip: take your SA passport with you and you’ll pay $20 instead of $30 to get in). We grabbed our cameras and…

City Livin’ with Abongwe

Abongwe and I met in the city to photograph a beautiful floral dress by Wear South Africa. The sun was setting behind the buildings and giving us the most amazing soft, natural light.

Faaiza at The Mount Nelson

Faaiza visited Cape Town recently and booked me for a shoot at The Mount Nelson. We had a wonderful time capturing her outfit in between short drizzles of rain. After our shoot, Faaiza treated me to a high tea. We snapped away – capturing all the pretty treats and the beautiful decor surrounding us while…

Marilize x Witchery

I shot for Marilize recently. Our location was a stunning apartment around Victoria Junction which was perfect for our first outfit for the shoot. We wanted a casual “on the way to the office” look for this outfit so the clean lines and minimal decor really complimented our story. I photographed Marilize in more serious…

Franschhoek Beauty

I met up with Nikee while shooting an event in Franschhoek recently. It is such a beautiful place to shoot ! I found a pretty flower-filled sidewalk and used it to create some interesting colours and blurs in the image. When an image is not interesting to me I always find something to shoot through…

Cooper Wedding – Lourensford

Jess & Carl planned their special day all the way from the UK. They felt such a connection to Cape Town, South Africa that when they got engaged they just knew it had to be their wedding destination! Their day was an intimate celebration attended by UK & SA guests at Lourensford Wine Estate… Jess…

A while back I was invited to be a guest judge & speaker at Prestige Academy’s end of year photographic exhibition. I had the honour of welcoming guests & sharing some helpful advice to the graduates – I also had to judge the exhibition & select my top 3 winning images. I thought I’d share…
