Celice and Bernie

Celice and Bernie were married surrounded by their incredible community of friends and family at Mina's Art Cafe in  the Magoebaskloof, Limpopo. What an honour to explore such a beautiful part of the country and capture such an amazing couples wedding. Their down to earth nature was reflected in the amazing venue they chose. Surrounded by lush forests and spectacular views every way you looked.

KRISTIN AND JOSH

Kristin and Josh were married in the beautiful chapel at Bishops surrounded by friends and family. Josh's dad led the very special ceremony. One of the most moving moments was when the siblings sang a song of blessing over the couple. These two are such a beautiful pair both inside and out with a firm foundation of faith. Wishing you two all the best for your adventure together!

Eloise and Ruan

These two got engaged at Kirstenbosch, so naturally they decided that it would be the location for their Engagement shoot. I love when couples decide on a location that has meaning to them.  Each time I visit Kirstenbosch I am reminded of the incredible beauty Cape Town has to offer, right on our doorstep. Wishing Eloise and Ruan a wonderful journey ahead together.

EMILY AND PETE

I am so happy when couples decide to choose a location that is meaningful to them. Emily and Pete both have membership cards to the Two Oceans Aquarium  and what an incredibly magical place it was for a shoot. It was pretty special to have some ragged tooth sharks and sting rays in the background of the photos.

Emily and Pete were so much fun to hang out with and I just loved capturing their moments of wonder as they experienced the exhibits together. 

We later moved to the new Silo District at the Waterfront and experienced the most insane views from the top of the Silo Hotel. 

A big thanks to Renée Leeuwner from the Aquarium for making this shoot possible.

NICOLE AND MILES

Nicole and Miles are two of the kindest people you will meet. When I heard they wanted to find a cosy coffee shop for their shoot I knew they were my kind of clients. You know when the laughter started I knew it was going to be a great afternoon shooting. Enjoy this cosy wintery shoot!

Shae and Luke

Shae and Luke are new friends who feel like old ones. It was so much fun spending time with them and showing them a few of my favourite spots in Cape Town. 

The first stop was the Bo- Kaap. It literally felt like at any moment we would be welcomed in for tea. There was just such an amazing sense of community. The second stop was along Tafelberg Road which has the most incredible views of the city. 

At the last stop, Luke brought along his guitar and sang one of the songs he had written for Shae. I love it when couples are themselves and incorporate something unique into their shoot.

KRISTIN AND JOSH

Sunrise is just the most wonderful time of day and the benefit of winter is that the sun gets up just a little later. Kristin and Josh were game, despite the early start and freezing temperature.

We headed to the Waterfront and were greeted by the most incredible sunrise. To warm up we stopped at Native Espresso Bar ,which is well worth a visit.

It was so great to get to know them better. Wishing you two all the best in this exciting engagement season!
