As much as I enjoy photographing a complete wedding, getting to photograph just bridal portraits makes me very happy! It is a favourite part of the wedding day for me but is often rushed and restricted to one location.
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.
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 Louise and Kyle about a year ago, we met up and chatted about their Worcester 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. We met shortly after for an engagement shoot in Tokai which just reaffirmed my initial feelings!
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.
Kim and Riaan were married in February in Durbanville. They were blessed with the most amazing day, no wind, gorgeous cloudy skies and gorgeously warm. They have come along way together so their special day was the culmination of many years and some hard times. It was so special to see them come together and finally be husband and wife.
The 2019 Pantone Colour of the Year is Living Coral, what a pretty colour it is! One of my favorite Hair and Make-Up artists, Suzanne, asked me to be involved in a shoot showcasing this colour and I jumped at the chance. We picked Gordon’s Bay beach as our location and on the day the wind was howling. It made shooting a little more tricky but I just love the way the wind created movement in the gorgeous tulle of the dress, it was all just magical! I can’t wait to see the use of this colour in weddings in the coming year!
Genevieve and David were married in Elgin in December. One of my favourite places and one of my favorite months, I knew it was going to be a goodie!
