Lize-Meri and Claude at de Malle Meul

Every wedding is special in it’s own way, a day filled with love and happiness. Lize-Meri and Claude’s day really took this to a new level! I cried and I laughed along with this amazing couple. Two people that are so in love and so committed to each others happiness.

Claude put so much thought into his gift for Lize and the note he wrote had all the girls in tears.

They both smiled looking at each other the whole way thought their ceremony. It was so wonderful to me how the two families really came together sharing a love for Lize and Claude.

The reception was just pure joy and laughter! The guests were treated to unique a view into the couples’ lives by their friends and family’s words. My cheeks were sire from smiling and laughing! the rest of the night was filled with fun and celebration. Every single guest present was there to share their happiness with the couple and nothing else mattered.

Lize-Meri and Claude, I walked away from your wedding day with that warm and fuzzy feeling. You reminded me what real, heartfelt romance is. Your support and love for each other is unwavering and your true appreciation for each other so rare. Thank you for giving me the honor of being the one to capture these memories.

Lauren and Alton Maternity

One of the many reasons I love what I do is that I often get to follow couples through their life’s journey. Lauren and Alton are one of those couples. I was part of their wedding day, did a post wedding Trash The Dress shoot and now on to the start of their little family!

We went back to the venue where they got married two years ago for their maternity shoot. As always with these two, it was loads of fun. Alton struggles a little to be serious in front of the camera!

Thank you both for a great afternoon and congratulations on the birth of your baby boy Ayden.

Lots of love, Aunty Kath

Michelle and Rudi’s Engagement

I met Michelle and Rudi in Kalk Bay, one of my favourite shoot locations, for their engagement pictures. It was a perfectly cloudy day and I love how the images came out. They started off a little shy but soon eased into it. Michelle has such a great laugh and Rudi seems to be able to get it out of her pretty easily! I am sure their wedding in March is going to be just wonderful, I am so looking forward to it.

Sandra and Jeff at Eureka

Sandra and Jeff chose to get married at the start of Cape Town spring and were blessed with a lovely day. The sun was out and the September chill kept things comfortably cool.

They were married at Eureka along the Durbanville Wine Route which has recently built a new gorgeous wedding venue. After a beautiful church ceremony in Woodstock we made our way to the venue to enjoy the festivities. The food was delicious and the guests had a wonderful time listening to heartfelt speeches.

Sandra and Jeff are a down to earth, loving couple. I felt very welcomed by them both and their love for one another shows in the most simple ways. The way they help each other and support one another and just the looks they share. It’s not a grand display, but it is very real.

Thank you for allowing me to be part of this amazing day. I wish you a lifetime of happiness and laughter.

Antonia

Antonia was recently confirmed so she and her family hosted a lunch for family and friends to celebrate this momentous occasion in her life. I had a lot of fun with her doing some portraits in the rain! She is such a beautiful young lady inside and out. What a bright future you have in front of you Antonia!

Jo and Tish – La Bella

I wanted to start doing these La Bella shoots to give women the chance to feel beautiful. A chance to get a little out of their comfort zone and show how uniquely special they are. Women like Jo and Tish, they are the reason I started doing these shoots.

They have an amazing friendship and share a common love for living a healthy lifestyle. They train together and encourage one another every step of the way. During the shoot the one was constantly telling the other “you look amazing!!” It’s the kind of friendship we all need.

You two are an inspiration in so many ways. In your pursuit of perfection in the gym, eating clean and staying healthy. In your commitment to each other and the other people in your lives. Thank you for sharing the afternoon with me and encouraging me too!

Tarren’s Matric Farewell

One of the big reasons I love being a portrait photographer is that I often get to see families on more than one occasion. Earlier thisĀ  year I shot Arlene’s wedding and now I get to share her niece’s matric farewell. It was so wonderful going back to the family home and seeing them all again.

Tarren was a vision in her RidovaneM custom made gown. She has the most beautiful long hair that she had done in curls and her gorgeous features were finished off with bright pink lipstick. The perfect choice for a fun young lady.

I had great fun with Tarren and a few friends while taking their pics at Zevenwacht. After a few pics with very proud parents, she was off to start a magical night.

I hope you had the most amazing time Tarren and I hope that these pics will help you remember the occasion with a big smile.

Sandra and Jeff’s Engagement

I met Sandra and Jeff a month before they were married to do their engagement session. We took a walk through the Company Gardens (got attacked by squirrels!) and the streets of town. It was great fun and they both became more and more comfortable in front of the camera as we went on. I love getting to know couples this way, walking, talking and shooting :)

Bronwyn and Damian’s Engagement

I love meeting couples for the first time after chatting to them over email. It is always so much fun to meet them in person and watch how they interact with each other. I met Bronwyn and Damian for the first time when we got together for their engagement shoot. They are both a little shy but have the most fun together. They are so excited about their future together and I can’t wait to be part of their wedding day.

My season in black and white

As I head into the new wedding season this weekend, I have decided to put together a few of my favorite images from the past wedding season. I absolutely adore black and white images and so have decided to use those only for this collection. I enjoyed looking back on the season so much, I really am so grateful for all the wonderful couples I have had the privilege of photographing.
