kiekie:kit


This year kiekie:kit is sponsoring a wonderful prize to be given away to one lucky photographer who votes during 2015 voting period. The prize is a stylish teal camera bag "Rose" (by JoTotes). This lovely vintage-inspired handbag features a rosette, pleated sides and front panel, and zippered pockets for your odds and ends. The vintage detail includes a durable and easy-to-pull metal zipper.

Rose is the perfect day bag for carrying your camera and an extra lens with your purse items while out and about.

Below the owner of kiekie:kit, tells us a bit about herself and her business:

"My name is Schantel van der Merwe, and I live in the Johannesburg South Africa. I've been married for 9 years. And I've been a photographer for more than 9 years."

Since I started shooting I’ve imagined the perfect bag that would carry all the necessities a photographer would want. Imagine my excitement when I discovered Kelly Moore bags and all the other fantastic bag brands we offer. I immediately ordered myself one from the U.S. Unfortunately the ordering process was a long and expensive process, so I decided to import these awesome bags and make it more accessible to the South African photography market.

I want to encourage the photographers out there and give them more variety than what the South African market has to offer. With the Kelly Moore bags photographers have the opportunity where they can change a lens at a moment's notice without feeling the pressure of having the client wait. Trust me...I've been there. With more options you have more freedom and with more freedom you have more time to focus on your photography.

I hope you enjoy the products that we have to offer and that they really make your job more fun!"


We look forward to giving away this fatastic prize! Thanks kiekie:kit

Books.Love Album Design

(Pronounced Booksdotlove)


Books.Love Album Design was born purely from my love for photographs. I realized after my wedding that I couldn’t print every single photo, no matter how much I loved it and I hated those tacky slide-in albums with the cheesy words on the cover.

So with this in mind, I started design Coffee Table Albums for like-minded brides who simply did not have the talent, time or means to do it themselves. It’s been a slow but steady hill I’ve climbed but in January 2015 I had hit the 50-album mark!

I do album design mainly for weddings, but have also done albums for maternity, newborn, engagement shoots, holidays as well as lifetime and speciality albums.

I pride myself in doing work that is personalized, beautiful and of an incredibly high standard. I want my clients to have felt that it was my wedding album I was designing. Whatever you budget or your style – Books.Love Album Design strives to meet it. All the while, I get to “ooh and aahh” over beautiful images of you and your hubby on your best day!

Books.Love Album Design are giving away a fantastic prize during our 2015 voting period. Any bride that votes stands a chance to win a custom designed album of her wedding in a A4 Landscape 20 page Elite Litho book!

Yonder Hill Wines


About 15 kilometers from Stellenbosch, on the slow, meandering road that leads to Somerset West, lies a piece of land that is as peaceful and as tranquil as it is in unison with its surrounds. It nestles, in cozy comfort, against the lower slopes of the magnificent Helderberg and from the farmland’s threshold to its northernmost pinnacle, high against its towering heights, it embraces breathtaking views that stretch across the width of False Bay to the furthest-flung beacon that is Table Mountain. Yonder Hill covers some 13 hectares of rich Oakleaf and Clovelly soil. Vineyards are planted, predominantly, on the northern slopes of the farm and comprise two main cultivars: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot feature as well. Maritime breezes in the early afternoon greatly influence the ripening process and the grapes are harvested as long as three weeks later than they are in Stellenbosch, a short distance away.

Yonder Hill Wines will be sponsoring a lovely giftpack for one of voters this year.
