Getting through your amazing wedding day is a whirlwind of adrenaline, happy tears, and butterflies and it requires the ability to calmly navigate more than a little bit of chaos – try doing that in 43oC heat in the middle of Tulbagh’s heat wave of 2015 in a wedding dress and suit and you’ll start to appreciate how incredible Kelly and Dean are. They looked cool as a cucumber the whole way through!! My fantastic assistant Tobias gave up his New Year’s eve AND his birthday to melt alongside me under a mountain of kit, tripods and reflectors. What a sacrifice!! But we made it through and what a day it was! Olive Rock never disappoints, even in blistering heat and the team there, lead by Simone and Nick, rolled out a celebration to remember! Enjoy the heat hazed photos of this party that started a new family :-D

The bloke behind the smoke and the man behind the pan… A chef’s portrait I’m particularly proud of from our shoot with the superb new eatery The Hickory Shack.

There’s a time and a place for most things, but I’m pretty sure you could fit this sandwich in anywhere, anytime ;-) Find the Food Fox’s super recipe here on our weekly column for the Pretty Blog. Enjoy!

This may be one of my favourite bridal shots of 2015… Gorgeous gorgeous Kelly…

Considering Lindsay, Brandon and I have been in touch since even before he proposed I feel so close to this whole story! And what a day full of moments it turned out to be :-D There was the local pug who photo bombed our groom session, the ‘first look’ full of the happiest tears, the most emotional hand-over from the father of the bride to the groom I’ve ever seen at the end of the aisle, plus the most heart-tugging speech from the father of the groom, the softest sunset light on one of the hottest days in Riebeek Kasteel and and and and…well, too many more to list here! Lindsay and Brandon, thank you SO much for including me in so much of your story – you’ve been a true delight right from the very beginning!! Assisted by the ever-wonderful Illyan Cloete.

Jenna emailed me a long while back to share a bit about their fairytale romance and how Philipp proposed after only having spent twenty one days together! She said ‘when you know you know’ and it couldn’t have been more obvious how perfect these two are for each other at the wedding! A very special bond… They shared their celebrations with family and friends from out here in South Africa and from Philipp’s home country Austria. Tokara was such a beautiful setting and backdrop for so much emotion and happy festivities! Enjoy the photos of this beautiful couple – inside and out!! Assisted by the lovely Illyan Cloete.
