Thorsten & Thabi were married in Germany a couple of months before their wedding in South Africa, we got to see some of their German wedding photo’s on Thorsten’s phone..which in all honesty was a little intimidating to see as the pics were absolutely amazing. We felt privileged to be part of their special day here in South Africa and to be able to capture their memories and special moments with family and friends.
The Ultimate Human Race.. how true!
To our amazing team of photographers, Marius, Magda, Reuben, Kierran, Luca and Anthony, you guys rock…without your effort and commitment there would be no images to tell the story of the day. Thank you!

Comrades Marathon is one of the events we photograph, that stays in our minds until the next Comrades race. It is awe inspiring, mind blowing and we treasure the privilege to be photographers of such an epic race.
It takes months of training, time and effort to prepare for Comrades and lots of courage to line up early in the morning at the start, knowing the battle is yours to conquer. We salute each and everyone of you!
The spirit along the route is always something to experience, runners helping each other, people who have never met before sharing life stories. Even I, taking photos from the back of a motorbike, had the pleasure of having full-blown conversations with the runners as they ran next to us. The look of utter disbelief on the faces of the runners having to turn around at Drummond because they did not make cut off, or the agony of runners with severe cramping is heartbreaking, but then you get to the finish and you experience the elation of runners who cross the finishline. That is the true story of Comrades!!
We want to mention Tubby, who belongs to the Highway Dragons Club. He organises our motorbike riders and they do a phenomenal job of keeping us safe on the bikes. Savvy, for making sure Kierran gets leading men. Martin, who ensures that Mike has the perfect vantage point for leading ladies. Joe, who took Em on her creative journey for the perfect pic and last but not least, Bushy for putting up with me (Magda). Thanks for the cup of coffee, it was soo nice!
Thanks to all of our MMPhotoSA team – you guys are amazing.
Until next year.
