Cake Smash Photoshoot {Johannesburg Photographer}

Cake Smash Photoshoot {Johannesburg Photographer}

YAY the excitement when your baby turns the big ONE year!!

The new trend, lets smash a cake, see how dirty we can get and take photos of it :) hahaha!!

But in all honesty it is really cute, some babies are really not that into getting grubby but they get into it and why not cherish this super special birthday with a great bang of cake explosion!!

Majority of my cake smash sessions are done in studio BUT i have done some really amazing ones outdoors in the warmer months... My studio is based in johannesburg north, packages can include or exclude a cake, include or exclude family pics... this can really be ascot and sweet simple capture of your darling turning one and making a mess in style :)

Maternity Photographer Johannesburg {Cherise - Fun Studio Session}

This was without a doubt a really fun session, there wasn't much we didn't do... a few pics i won't post but really a great session and such a wonderful couple to work with!

I have so many clients who travel from Alberton and Johannesburg south to come see me for photo shoots, studio and location, i feel really fortunate to have support there too! - Thank you

We will be seeing their precious little newborn very very soon :) Can not wait... a sweet little girlie!

Goodluck for the last stretch guys!

Love, Niks

Generation Photoshoot {Delta Park Johannesburg} - Katherine

Generation Photoshoot {Delta Park Johannesburg} - Katherine

I was really happy when Katherine contacted me to do a Mother's day shoot / Generation shoot a few weeks ago... its been a while since i've done one outdoors and i love how it turned out.

It was a rather chilly Sunday morning, one of the coldest we have had so far, but they were all great and so worth the chill... 

These memories are an hours reach away {ok say 2 :) } - and i have come across many, MANY clients who haven't done it.... DOOO IT! :) - Life is ticking by, and this is what we have to look back on <3 

What i loved about this shoot most is that they lived this shoot, they enjoyed their moments - which i see looking at their photos again and again... and that is extra special! 

Love, Niks

Outdoor Family Photographer Johannesburg {Delta Park Shoot} - The Dias Family

Outdoor Family Photographer {Delta Park Shoot} - The Dias Family

A very chilly morning it was... and re-schedule upon re-schedule this lovely family finally made it all attending :)

I personally love this time of year for an outdoor shoot, the colours in the park are great, the leaves are amazing, esp for kids to throw around, jokes aside they really do make for great photos... if you are a family that chooses to do family photos regularly i would definitely have this on your to-do list, catch up on a studio session the following year if you only do family photos once a year... this is great fun!

P.S This venue is grreeaattt... it has a super jungle gym where the kids can let off some steam afterwards or you can picnic and make a day of it :)

Give a boy some leaves and a park and you are all set to go for some great fun photographs i say...

Hope you enjoy!

Really?? soooo adorable!

Just love this...

Sweet Brothers

Gotta love this... :)

Hopefully i will be seeing you all soon!

Pretoria & Johannesburg Wedding Photographer {Sian & CJ - Die Akker Wedding venue}

Pretoria & Johannebsurg Wedding Photographer  {Sian & CJ - Die Akker Wedding venue}

This marks my first blog post - a part from my mini tester of the cake smash photoshoot :)

So this may be slightly longer than majority to come, but well deserved!

Sian & Cj got married at Die Akker wedding venue in pretoria, just beating that heavy rainy period we had... overcast day but absolutely beautiful in everyway!

Sian is more than a client, she is a part of my family, which makes this extra special... thank you guys so much for entrusting me with your special day, the detail, love, happiness and giggles experienced through out the entire day i will never forget.

I learnt so much from this wedding, and hope to continue to grow more and more all the time.

You were an absolute pleasure to work with, myself and Brand (my partner in crime) had so much fun capturing these memories for you, from beginning to end.

Wishing you MANY happy, love-filled years together!

Hope you enjoying seeing a glimpse of their special day...

Bits and pieces of the venue and detail : {amazing for a vintage or country style wedding - or maybe it was just the whole decor they went with that suited the venue so well :)

So many beautiful details at this wedding...

The Bride & Groom getting ready for their big day... both had their share of nerves but the overpowering love and excitement to finally say their "I DO's" was undeniable.

"Im Ready to be Yours

The ladies arriving... getting pampered, make-up, hair done and protected in the ever so sexy look :)

Relaxed and loving the experience...
Down to business... :)

Gorgeous bridal portrait ... falling in love with wedding photography :) {its difficult to say what my first love is in this industry... if you've seen my work, newborns, families, couples etc... but this magical day definitely tops the cake somewhere, that fairytale beginning of a couples future... so romantic }

The Chapel
Wow - so unique and different to the norm, i loved it!!

Some Chapel photos, decor and ceremony to follow :)

Those magical photo sesh times...

One thing i believe when looking for a wedding venue is to look for ideal photo ops... yes you are spending your day and evening there and its not all about where you can take your photos, but its all you have to look back on...

                                   The Reception...

The wedding cake... yummy!

Loving the new tradition coming in, cutting the cake before bride and groom go off for photos!

Amazing detail gone into this wedding... love, love love!!


A really fun couple, fun wedding... one for the books :)

Mr & Mrs Bester... Congrats on your marriage and now the news of parenthood on the way!!! :) {its about time} A long successful relationship you have had, and i wish you many more years filled with much more joy and happiness as you extend your love circle :):)
Mr & Mrs Bester


Much love
