Gerard’s brother enthralled the crowd with his talented musical abilities which turned into a trio with Gerard and his dad joining in, a great moment!
Venue: Vrede & Lust
What a magical wedding! There were so many amazing photos I just could not limit myself to a few images. It was truly hard to make these selections hence why I havn’t posted anything in a while. As always I’ll leave it to the experts and let the images to the talking
Venue: Vrede en Lust in Stellenbosch
Julia and DK (the artist formerly known as De Klerk) had great weather on their wedding day in March. I just came back from Las Vegas and I was feeling a bit under the weather but it was such a great event and everyone was is such a happy mood it lifted my spirits and soon I forgot about my woes and I really enjoyed the laughs and the small intimate wedding which was held at her family house. The dance floor was literally held up with a boards and nails right over a swimming pool! Alas the carpentry held up very well and I did not get to capture and splish splashingPlease enjoy!

Jeannine and Rene got married at Langverwacht Estate next to Zevenwacht in March this year. He is the man from Amsterdam and she is from Cape Town. Ok maybe not really Amsterdam but it sounded cool, enjoy the photos! It also needs to be mentioned that it was one hell of a hot day, probably close to 35 degrees Celcius at some stage in the shade. The flowers, sadly did not make it, RIP.
Yes that’s right! Las Vegas! So I had the pleasure of visiting the States a couple of weeks ago and on my very first trip ended up in Las Vegas of all places. I know, can you believe it?! Am I crazy or what? Not entirely
See there was a convention there called the WPPI. The largest of it’s kind, an International Wedding and Portrait Photographer Expo and Convention. There were close to 16,000 attendees this year, held at the magnificient MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. My facebook page has lots of pics from the expo itself, I will be putting up more of my own personal snaps I took while walking around (and did I walk! Probably close to 6km’s a day, which is way over my daily walkable budget)
It was an incredible experience in a massive place. One truly feels small and a good pair of comfortable shoes is essential, forget about being too snazzy, your feet will die. There was another reason I went to Vegas and that was to support my brother, Jean-Pierre, he had been nominated by the Framed Awards as one of the top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World, what an honor! I met the most awesome people while I was there, Kristi Sutton Elias, Corinne Alavekios, Jerry Ghionis, Jose Villa, Jonas Peterson, Benjamin Von Wong, Gregory Georges, Elizabeth Messina, Christy Weber, Blair DeLaubenfels and an artist from San Diego Kathryn Williams to name a few. So great to meet you all!
I have been busy working a new website and here it is – ericuysphotography.com – please go have a look as it is basically just a showcase of some of my best work or at least some of the work, I have had time to edit and select. It is such a labour intensive task and such a difficult but neccessary task that all photographer have to go through, I find it very difficult to cull my images so this process takes me ages!
It was last year December a day before Christmas that my brother and I shot this gorgeously extravagant Indian Wedding in Durban. At almost 800 guests it was a truly massive event to cover, even for two photographers as experienced as my brother and I, that’s why the couple from Custophoto helped us out for a bit during the reception. The entire wedding took place at the beautiful Durban Convention Centre next to the Hilton hotel where we stayed. I really don’t know why it’s taken me this long to blog this beautiful fantastical Bollywood Wedding. Enjoy!
