The day I met Nikita and Keegan for the first time to discuss their Durbanville wedding, I was struck by how shy and sweet they both were. Nikita was quietly excited and nervous about their upcoming day and all the planning she still needed to do. Keegan was supportive and helpful to his wife to be. After chatting for a while, they decided to have an engagement session with me. This is a great way of getting some time in front of the camera. I believe this is helpful in order to make them feel more relaxed on their wedding day.
Nikita and Keegan and I met for the first time a few months when they were beginning to plan their wedding day. As part of their wedding package, they decided to include an Engagement shoot. These sessions, above all, are a great way to have some practice in front of the camera. I love doing this with my couples because it really does make things easier on wedding day. It also gives me a good opportunity to get to know them a little better.
Anria and Logan really did have the most whirlwind Cape Town wedding! Shortly before the big day Logan accepted a job in the U.K which meant him flying out a few days after their wedding day. They were faced with arranging and organising so many things in such a short space of time and it really just showed me how strong their bond is. They stuck together and compromised for one another to make sure it all worked.
I met Cindy-Lee and Leon a few months ago for their engagement session and after spending the afternoon with them, I was so excited for their wedding day! And I was really not disappointed. We were blessed with beautiful overcast weather, just warm enough and not at all windy.
This beach wedding was both unique and extra special for me. Not only is Candace one of my oldest friends, but she asked me to be a bridesmaid. So photographer and bridesmaid in one! It was a whirlwind day for me but one which meant so much. Candace met Callum as a fourteen year old and became a love struck teenager! Their friendship lasted a short period of time and then life took them in different directions. Fast forward twenty odd years and two kids collectively and their paths crossed again. This time is was meant to be and Candace’s teenage crush turned out to be the love of her… Keep Reading
I met Anria and Logan for a cup of coffee before heading out to do an engagement session in Kalk Bay. I learnt what a whirl wind of life they are about to experience, a wedding and relocating overseas all in the space of a few weeks. They are so supportive of each other and are ready to face the future, it is so exciting.
I met Louise and Kyle about a year ago, we met up and chatted about their wedding day, we had coffee and chatted some more. When I left I knew this was going to be a wonderful wedding! Such a great couple, such welcoming people and just knowing that they were meant to be together, forever, as a family.
Lisa and Tim came all the way from Germany to tie the knot at a beach house in Kommetjie. They brought along a handful of their closest friends to share a week long holiday and wedding day with them.
Can we just take a moment for a aaahhhhhhh! I have said it before and I will continue to say it, a huge part of why I love my job is being able to share in people’s most special journeys. I have had the immense privilege to shoot Abby and Shane’s wedding, their maternity shoot and now a little at home session with baby Sophia. I spent some time with the little family at home one week day morning, capturing her happy, content moments as well as her not so easy moments 🙂 But isn’t that what raising a little princess is all about?
Louise and Kyle are getting married! I met this super sweet couple a few months ago to chat about their wedding day and after deciding they wanted an engagement session we settled on Tokai Forest which a favorite location of mine. Louise is so photogenic and Kyle is just happy to be with her and make her smile.
