I recently came across this invention that unfortunately aren’t in production. Its called the Flee. According to the www.wallyou.com:
“This flying camera is a concept design by Turkish designer Hakan Bogazpinar and is titled ‘Flee’. here are cameras that can be bounced and cameras that can be lobbed ahead for surveillance. The Flee takes the concept of throw-able cameras to a ‘higher’ level. The Flee has two components: a digital camera and a Bluetooth receiver. Flee’s digital camera is a circular container that is enclosed in a round, lightweight ball made up of a crack resistant material. The ball is orange in color.
The circular digital camera is made up of a lithium battery, memory chip, Bluetooth chip, a CCD, and the lens. The orange ball camera is attached to an intelligent tail design that keeps the camera in an upright position while in flight. The tail design resembles that of a table fan. The Bluetooth receiver unit will be plugged in your mobile phone and will decode and store images. Using the throwable ball camera is as easy as playing catch. Hold the ball in your hand and toss it as high as you can. Once the ball is an upright position it will start clicking pictures at specific time intervals and, as mentioned above, transmit it to your mobile device via the Bluetooth transmitter. Think of all the fun pictures you can click from an angle that is not possible with the current lot of digital cameras. The Flee is in a concept stage and has not been developed into a practical reality as yet.”
Although this is a toy, I think this might work in wedding situation. Imagine a ceremony on the beach, predrinks outside or even a dancefloor. (if you have enough light). You would get some unique images. I have used a camera with wide angle lens on a monopod but sounds so cool.
I know what I want from Santa this Christmas!

Stephan & Sarah got married on the 6th of Nov at Alle Bleue. Really one of my favorite venues. Their service is awesome and the staff are extremely helpful
and friendly. We did their photos in the vineyards and with the mountains in the background we got some postcard photos.
“In 2006, during our final year at Varsity (Stellenbosch) a mutual friend needed house mates for a student house.
From the start there was chemistry between us and it was not long before I sneaked a kiss.
What started off as a mutual attraction quickly developed into friendship and ultimately grew into love.”
After varsity life, each one started off their careers with Sarah based in the Boland and Stephan heading off into deep dark Africa for gold exploration.
This resulted in a long distance relationship that tested their love and friendship- but they prevailed and fell even more in love over time.
On the 6th November- two good friends finally tied the knot and started off a new adventure- this time together 4 ever!”

Jacus and Lina’s wedding was our first wedding after our holiday in Thailand. Well rested and full of energy we couldn’t wait to get back into the game.
They got married at Neetlingshof and with them being musicians we were really excited to be part of their wedding. They had a “open stage” at their reception
and we saw some amazing talent on show. Really a great idea to get your friends involved in the entertainment!
We had some awesome clouds that made for some amazing backdrops. And with the couple’s good looks and energy it was easy getting great pictures
How did you meet?
We’ve met at a wedding about 8 years ago and never saw each other again. About a year later Lina started working at Vredelust and Jacus was also involved in the music ministry as a worship leader. It took a while for us to realize that we were meant to be together. We got back together again in July last year and knew that we wanted to get married ASAP – but in summer. Set the date in December, got engaged in April and planned a great wedding.

“Both of us love the good things in life – good food, good wine and good company! We love spending time in beautiful places and are totally in love with Europe!
We hope that our journey together will take us there some time. In the mean time we enjoy beautiful South Africa with all the great things it offers!”

Hardus en Anneke got married on probably the busiest Saturdays of the year.
“The Long weekend Saturday in September” We returned to “Die Opstal”. We did a wedding here a week before.
Although its nice to know a wedding venue well, its always challenging to keep the photos fresh and new. Amazing backdrops + awesome weather + brilliant couple = Creative session!
Iza did Anneke’s Make-up and its always fun with her closeby.
They met on the dancefloor and after numerous coffee dates the writing was on the wall.

Whenever I meet with couples in consultations we always work out the exact time of sunset. We try to start 40min before sunset with the shoot. The light is good and if we are really lucky we get a great sunset.
Once in a while we get a GOOOD one. This time we got a GOOOOOD one. (The photos is very close to the actual photo out of camera. The sunset really was this awesome)
Reinart and Louise got married at Bosduifklip just outside Lamberts Bay. The made the “Groot Trek” from Gauteng and all the guests were proper tourists.
Louise is a Ecologist and Reinart a Musician and graphic designer . I would say this is a great match!
Where did you guys meet:
“We have known each other from the age of 2. Our parents went to the same church and that is where our families first met. Since then we went to the same high school and only became very good friends after school when I was dating the bass player in Reinart’s band. I always supported all their shows and concerts. Eventually band members immigrated to New Zealand, a new bass player and drummer joined. I didn’t see Reinart for a few months as I traveled with my studies. Then one day I got a call from Reinart asking if I would go to the Dean’s (the drummer) wedding with him. That same night Reinart asked whether we can start a relationship (24 Sep). On our second date he said “Jy is my trou vrou” and 5 years later after my studies and on the date of our first date (24 Sep). We got married …”

An interesting fact about the couple:
“We both have the same surname so my maiden name remains unchanged. Also we made all the décor for our wedding ourselves. This was hard work but a great idea, as we had so much fun and got to spend a lot of quality time together before the wedding”
