Andy and Tozy

I met Andy and Tozy a few months ago for their engagement shoot and I immediately knew it was going to be a wonderful wedding celebration. They are both such fun and happy people and this really did translate on their wedding day.

They had an afternoon ceremony at Marlenique in Paarl under gorgeous blue skies. The guests were all dressed in such wonderful colours and many of the ladies wore hats which I loved! The ceremony was a celebration from the minute Tozy walked to the alter to wait for Andy. There was singing and dancing and clapping of hands.

This atmosphere continued for the rest of the day, celebrating this amazing couple. Andy and Tozy got to share some peaceful time away during their couple shoot where the romance of the day could sink in. I have never had such a dapper groom, he even changed suites during the couple shoot! Andy changed her veil and hair style which I really loved.

Thank you to you both for allowing me to share this amazing day with you. I am so grateful. It was so easy for me to smile through the day with you. I wish you all the love and happiness together in your future.

vivi Oh Andy, this was one Perfect wedding.....

Braids, Buns and Ballet shoes

A few months ago I got to do my first styled shoot. I did ballet for many years when I was young and I still love the art form today. So I decided using a ballet theme would be a good place to start! Being a wedding photographer, I also wanted a feeling of romance in the images which we managed to do. I was very lucky to be able to work with really amazing ladies who made this day such fun and a huge success.

We shot at the beautiful Kelvin Grove in Rondebosch with the help of Samantha. The grounds are gorgeous and The Sports Pavilion venue that we used has amazing light and space. Suzanne Potgieter from Skoonlief did such a brilliant job with hair and make-up, she knows all the best tricks and loves every second of what she does. Her assistant for the day was Marelize who is a beauty blogger, Make-up, Moans and Must Haves, so we were in good hands!

Thank you to my model, Nelani, for being in front of the camera for me. She did everything I asked of her with a smile :)

It was a really inspiring day and one that I will remember for a very long time.

I hope you enjoy the romance and beauty of these images.

Olinda and Robbie

Olinda and Robbie are currently living in London but they are both originally from Cape Town so it was the logical choice as their wedding destination. They chose D’Aria in Durbanville as their venue and I really enjoyed shooting at this venue for the first time. The light was beautiful, the scenery was pretty and I had the perfect couple to complete the picture :)

Olinda got ready at her parent’s home. When I arrived her hair and make-up was pretty much complete and I was blown away by how beautiful she looked. Then I saw her dress!!! It was so elegant and romantic, a favourite of mine for sure. And it just suited her so perfectly. She paired it with gorgeous bright pink shoes.

She and Robbie were married in an old church in Woodstock and it was a really beautiful, traditional ceremony. They exchanged vows and rings, shared a first communion together as husband and wife and were then showered with petals as they left the church.

The rest of the day was spent celebrating and enjoying the company of their family and friends. I, as always, loved the traditional Portuguese dancing at the reception!

Thank you both for having me share this day with you. I hope you are settling back into cold London with no trouble ;) I wish you all the love and happiness as husband and wife x

Candice and Craig

I first met this couple a few months ago while they were planning their big day and I remember thinking what sweet people they are. They proved this to me again on their wedding day. It is so amazing to see that there are still people like this, caring, considerate and filled with love for all those close to them.

Candice got ready at her family home before traveling to the local church for the ceremony. She was so excited to see her man. At one point she heard someone arriving at the house and asked with a big smile on her face “Is that my Craigy?”

Craig was very emotional when he saw Candice coming down the aisle with her father and he held onto her tightly for the duration of the ceremony.

The couple then celebrated with their family and friends at Zevenwacht Estate.

Thank you to you two special people for allowing me to be part of this day. I wish you love and happiness in the years to come as husband and wife.

Darren Beautifully captured Kathryn - Can feel the love.
Roxy Neer Really beautiful.

Renee and Family

Renee, who is originally from Cape Town, was recently on holiday with her fiance from America. She contacted me to do a shoot with herself and Gregg along with her parents. We met up at the Company Gardens in Cape Town to capture some special memories for them all. I had a great time getting to know this family a little better and I hope these are images they can look back on and smile for years to come.

Tracy and Jacques’ Engagement

I had the pleasure of meeting Tracy and Jacques recently for their engagement session. They are getting married later this month and were in Cape Town attending to some wedding details. They are both from Cape Town originally but are now living in Johannesburg. Table Mountain was therefore the perfect backdrop for the shoot and although we had a super windy afternoon, they both handled it so well! They dealt with swirling hair and eating sand like real troopers :)

Thanks Tracy and Jacques for a fun afternoon, it was great getting to know you both a little and I can’t wait for your wedding day.

Nicole and Ryan

Meeting couples like Nicole and Ryan is one more reason I love my job. I met them earlier in the year for their engagement shoot and we got on really well right away. Nicole was so excited leading up to their big day, she was engrossed in her planning and just couldn’t wait to marry her man. I loved our pre-wedding chats!

They chose Zevenwacht as their venue for celebrations, and it was a great celebration! The entire day ran really smoothly and Nicole was so calm during her preparation at home. She was right on time for the ceremony at the church and was just so ready to walk down that aisle to Ryan! The evening was spent laughing and crying happy tears, so filled with love between two families. Dancing, birthday shots, laughter and hugs were the order of the night. I couldn’t help but smile throughout the reception.

Thank you Nicole and Ryan for being you. For being such amazing clients and wonderful people. I wish you both a lifetime of joy and love together, you deserve nothing less. Thank you for allowing me to be such a big part of this special moment in your life together.

Michelle Kehl Wow. What lovely wedding photos. Really stunning and a lovely couple.

Theresa and Hentie

I had the pleasure of getting to know this lovely couple a little more a few months ago when I did their engagement shoot. From then on I knew their wedding was going to be an extra special one, and it was so much more than I could ever have hoped for a as a photographer! Everything was beautiful and romantic and the whole day was just filled with love.

They celebrated their wedding at Nelson’s Creek in Paarl where the weather was perfect and the surroundings were as gorgeous as this couple. Their wedding was expertly put together by Maridene from Rapple Events and every detail was taken care of.

Theresa and Hentie are such a lovely couple, so caring and considerate. They love each other so completely and they appreciate each other so much. I am so grateful that I got to meet them and be part of their very special day.

“Should this be the last hing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
Because all that you are
Is all that I’ll ever need
So in love, so in love”

Elanza and Gavin

This was one just one of those days! Everything was just perfect and ran like clock work. I met Elanza and Gavin at their home a couple of weeks before their wedding day and we chatted about the day. Elanza explained their decor choices and how they wanted the venue to look, but she really didn’t prepare me for the gorgeousness I found when I arrived! The venue they chose was 401 Rozendal and it is so perfectly unique. A mixture of old and new, such an interesting space. And their choices suited the venue so well.

When I got to Elanza, the picture perfect prettiness continued! She chose a gorgeous dress that she looked so amazing in and with her red hair and beautiful eyes, she was a vision. Suzanne from Skoonlief was doing the finishing touches to her make-up when I arrived and she was just beaming!

The ceremony was emotional and full of happiness and laughter. I loved the way Elanza and Gavin looked over at each other throughout the ceremony. Like they were both just so grateful for one another and so in love.

We spent the rest of the afternoon having fun with group and couple’s pictures, horse flies and little 4×4 trail! The evening was spent sharing an amazing meal with their friends and family as well as some chill time in a really cool Moroccan lounge complete with bright colours and hubbly!

Thank you to you both for having me as a part of this spectacular day. I am so grateful I got to know you a little and that I was there to witness your start your life together. I hope these are memories you will cherish forever.

Melissa’s Matric Farewell

With Matric Farewell season in full swing, I got to spend the afternoon with Melissa and her lovely family. What a beautiful girl, both inside and out! She wore the most amazing green dress that suited her so well and was escorted by her friend Marco. The event was held at Eureka and after a little car trouble they arrived at the venue for a fun evening.

I hope the night was all you hoped it would be Melissa. All the best for the last few months of your school career. x
