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.
Vicky got married just over two years ago and decided she needed to wear her wedding dress again! So we booked Suzanne from Skoonlief to do her hair and make-up. We booked a room at Lagoon Beach Hotel for her preparation and Tessa Slade Floral Design provided her bouquet. After some classic bridal portraits at the hotel we headed out to Cape Town central. I love shooting in the city, there is something about an urban backdrop that I really love.
As we were finishing up in Cape Town a grey mist descended over the city. The timing was perfect! We headed out to Sea Point for some beach shots and were given the most moody backdrop for our last location. I am so so excited it worked out that way! It allowed me to shoot something a little different than what I am used to and provided me an editing challenge which I loved.
Thank you to gorgeous Vicky for being such a good sport and heading into icey cold water just to get the shot!!
