{e-shoot} Wendy + Ivor

Its shoots like this that remind me how incredible it is to live in Cape Town… what a beautiful city?! I’ve wanted to do a shoot in Bokaap for ages and was so happy when Wendy suggested it – don’t you just love all the colours? And can Table Mountain ever be beaten for a backdrop?

Soooooo excited for Wendy & Ivor’s Big Day tomorrow <3 Its going to be gorgeous…

 

Francois asks Carrie to be his Forever {Proposal}

 

Apparently I could survive the Hunger Games (if all I had to do was hide away in the trees and not be spotted by all those vicious teenagers with weapons) but the point is: my camo abilities are epic. Which is a good thing since I hid in the willows at Mont Rochelle this Sunday and witnessed one of my besties get engaged. What an incredible honour getting to witness Francois ask Carrie to be his Forever – and then gatecrash their picnic ( I mean share in their celebrations!?)

Thank you Francois for allowing me to share in your most special day… you did good… especially with that ring. Black diamond for the win! Wishing you both all the happiness that Forever can hold (and then some more because if you squeeze real hard you can squish some extra good stuff in…) Love you both lots xx

 

{Engagement} Dederika & LJ

This is definitely an e-shoot which I will never forget; I had so much fun! I’ve heard photographers speak about their “ideal couple” and I think I finally understand what they mean – Dederika and LJ were amazing and absolutely game for anything.  I love couples who are not only love eachother, but who laugh and have fun together; that’s what makes for a great shoot…

 



{e-shoot} – Clerissa & Byron

I love this shoot for so many reasons: a gorgeous couple, beautiful venue, perfect weather,  Byron’s many expressive faces… If you haven’t heard about De Ouwe Klok function venue, do yourself a favour and check it out – its absolutely lovely and perfect for an intimate, rustic farm style wedding.  Clerissa and Byron have definitely found themselves a gem…

{Engagement} Laetitia & Riaan

Its not often that I get to witness a couple’s engagement – before meeting them!  I was exhibiting at the FAB Bridal Expo and before one of the fashion shows, Riaan popped the question on stage.  Needless to say Laetitia said yes… and here is their engagement shoot, at the lovely De Grendel Wine Farm in Plattekloof, Cape Town.  Am so in love with those golden hues…

{Engagement} Chelsea & Brett

Nothing challenges a photographer like bright noon day sunlight on a sandy beach… and yet, with a fun couple like Chelsea & Brett, all those challenges seemed to disappear!  Such a lovely, bubbly couple who’re living life to the max…

{Engagement} Inge & Niel

I got to know Inge while she was still living in Cape Town; soon after she moved back to the Lowveld, she was introduced to Niel – and let’s just say the rest is history… We did the e-shoot at my parent’s holiday home in the Sabi Parks game park (my absolute Happy Place).  Definitely one of my favourites to date.  Cannot wait for their wedding in January!
