Black as Night
The Photography Inspiration
I always try to do something that differs from the norm. I love the moody look black dresses…it’s different from what I would normally do. Black is one of my favourite colours. It’s sophisticated, elegant, simple and easy at the same time.
We got some stunning dresses at:
Bolaji Adeoti van Couture Esperanza in Rustenburg
Alexander Solokova in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
Through the eyes of a make-up artist.
To do make-up is not only a profession but also art. Every nude face that finds itself before me is a canvas. Like an artist holding a brush, every stroke is a little detail that would finally add to a masterpiece.
Every woman is beautiful. My aim is to enhance that beauty. There is no better joy for a make-up artist than to reveal to her clients their exquisiteness.
Through years of experience, I have met many individuals of different ages. Each had a background – somewhere they came from and somewhere they were going. When our paths crossed, we shared a segment of time in which I created an image of them which was only meant for the most special moments they would experience.
A bride looking at her reflection one last time before walking down an aisle, a matric girl putting on a dress that she’d been dreaming of all year, or even a model entering a stage embraced by flashing lights, are all moments that I had the privilege of being part of.
Knowing how much those moments mean to my clients is what makes my work all the more worthwhile.

Make-up by Uthene
Tanya Kirsten is a Nikon shooter and a Pinterest junkie. She is a girly girl but doesn’t mind getting dirt on her hands or mud on her shoes. She was born and raised in a small town in the Free State, moved around a few times and finally settled down in Gauteng with her hubby, who is the best person in the world, and her 2 adorable kids.
Tanya has been camera-crazy since childhood. Her husband bought her first Nikon camera in 2011 and it became her best friend. She did photography courses in Potchefstroom and attended workshops but, having had little training she truly believes her people skills, passion and above all her eye for the light and love is what blossoms her business.
She truly believes as a photographer, she has been given one of the most amazing blessings in life: to be able to go out into the world and have eyes that instinctively search for the unique beauty hiding within it.
She loves capturing the magical and spontaneous moments. Over the years her favourite thing she has learned through this job is that while everyone is different, every single person has something amazing about them and she loves bringing that out of them and into their photos.
Her photographic style is inspired by a range of influences, including editorial photography.
She loves to travel & will happily go to any location around the world to capture your magical moment!
