South African Pipe band Championships

On Saturday 30 July we had the privilege to photograph the bands at the South African Pipe Band Championships. It was a first for us but enjoyed it so much, we will be back again.

Hope you enjoy the pics just as must as we do.

Our New toy – Phantom Drone

Usually while on holiday we take thousands of pics and we never post any. This year we decided not to take as many and to go through those we do take and choose a few of the best ones. We also played around with our new toy the Phantom Drone. I for one is still a bit scared of flying (just now I crash) but we managed to get a lot of nice photos and videos from it. Here are a few holiday and drone pics.

Enjoy them.

St Lucia Proposal shoot

So this is our first post ever as we are new to the whole blog thing. So here goes……

While we were on holiday in St Lucia this past December holiday, Alan was fortunate to take some proposal photos for Gareth and Geraldine, two total strangers but clearly in love :). It happened by chance. We were taking our new toy (Phantom Drone) for a test drive at the Jetty and were the only people around except for Gareth and Geraldine. Gareth approached Alan (a bit nervous ;)), and asked if Alan would mind taking a video as he was going to propose to Geraldine (she had no idea, she thought Alan was just going to take a photo of them). Gareth went down on one knee and the rest is history as they say. We decided a nice “prezzie” to the newly engaged couple could be a few nice pics with the sun setting over the estuary. Hope you enjoy.
