Delicate pinks with pops of fuchsia!! Some delectable raspberry macarons from our shoot with the talented team at The Birdcage!
Our yearly play session with Fleur le Cordeur was a mixture of graphic lines, sensuous textures, contrasting monochromes and pops of colour! She wove soft pinks into midnight blacks on stark structures with wild red haired models and breathtakingly beautiful dresses – it was a total feast for my camera! What I love most about this shoot is the simplicity of the elements contrasted against the richness of the details. We had an incredible team providing amazing creations for us to work with – Vagabond Bridal, Secret Diary Stationery, Lisa Brown International, Scape Events, Anura Wine Estate
This is the second rainy wedding I’ve shot at Vrede en Lust for an overseas couple hoping for African sun and the second one where the rain held off just for the ceremony and couple shoot! I feel like there’s been some luck in my stars! Gorgeous Yolana and her American hubby-to-be Douglas celebrated the day and danced the night away with their nearest and dearest… What a phenomenal wedding put together beautifully by the Mosaic Wedding Company! Wonderful second shooting from Samantha Clifton Photography and assisted by Margriet Vollgraaf from MagPie Photography
Some more gorgeous stationery pics from our ongoing collaboration with the super-talented Secret Diary Stationery. I am in awe of their work!! Beautiful, creative, fun, striking, elegant and crafted with such care…
How beautiful is this perfectly dusted lemon polenta cake? Definitely one of my favourite shots from our lovely shoot with The Birdcage – the much loved tea-room and cake magicians based in Stellenbosch. They’ve become famous for their stunning naked wedding cakes but that’s just the tip of their creative skills! They also offer the most delicious catering now so give them a buzz!
Earthy, wintery, hearty pulses and succulent, flavourful lamb – a match made in heaven! Here we have the Food Fox’s spicy lamb and chickpea stew plus a beautiful Italian style white bean soup with lamb shanks and gremolata – a total winner!! These recipes and more come from our super collab with Lamb and Mutton SA.
Sonjé and Jõvan’s beautiful and emotional celebration was held at the lovely Glen Brae right here in Elgin – what a treat to photograph so much gorgeousness on my doorstep! These two are such gems! From the time we first met up we were laughing and chatting straight away and I’m so happy to have captured the connection between them on the big day! There was a lot more laughing, quite a bit of crying, heartfelt kisses and toasty marshmallows to top it all off – how could a wedding get any better?
Thank you both for chasing the sunset with me! It was a magical day!! Assisted by the lovely Elri Photography
These two gentle and beautiful souls said their vows and started their own new family at the leafy Conservatory in Franschhoek. The autumn sun shone for them the whole day and apart from almost stepping on a baby puff adder during the couple shoot (woops!!) the day was a perfect and personal celebration for them to remember…
Kate and Simon, thank you for letting me share these beautiful times with you! Enjoy your happy photos…
How would I get to meet such wonderful people if I didn’t do this job?? Natalie and Shaun have been such a lovely pair and so easy to work with since we met for their eshoot in December! Here are some happy pics of their beautiful day at Eureka sprinkled with the last of the summer sunshine…
