It’s just all kinds of wrong and all kinds of right – the guilty hedonism of the caramel smothered cinnabun… Lucky there aren’t a tray of those babies next to me right now… I just don’t have the willpower! Find the Food Fox’s super recipe here on our weekly food column for the Pretty Blog.

Elaine is, in my mind, the very image of a fairytale mermaid – wavy blonde locks, ocean blue eyes, perfect creamy skin and a smile that could win any heroic sailor’s heart for ever… Rudie’s heart was won and these two gorgeous lovebirds were married by the sea on a beautiful September afternoon. Elaine and Rudie, thank you SO much for sharing all of this with me and being such a special couple to start my wedding season with… I hope you cherish these photos for ever… Assisted by the wonderful Angelique Smith Photography

So it was a gentle spring day with a salt-tanged breeze and gulls cawing overhead. Rene and Dirk wanted to shoot around the gorgeous Waterfront in Cape Town as that’s where he proposed and started this wonderful story off! There was a helicopter, a candlelit dinner and a diamond ring involved – sjo, that’s one romantic hubby-to-be!!!

Beautiful September light mixed with greys, blues and a touch of coral red made for sublimely happy and calm photographs. Enjoy!

Rene and Dirk, your beautiful wedding is almost here!

We spent such a lovely day shooting some inspiration images for the lovely Fennec from Fox and Co! The day started with the most amazing mist and we all hustled to make sure that we got some shots in it before the mid-morning sun chased it all away! Wonderful hair from Marite Crous, Make-up from Sarah Chasteau Hoberman, Decor from Okasie, My Pretty Vintage and A Vintage Affair, Dress from Warrick Gautier of Jenni Button and lovely Rockhaven as the venue. Many thanks to our gorgeous model Cornel Gardner (and of course lovely Fennec herself :-))

My first sneak peek of this season’s first wedding… Such a special one with Elaine and Rudie…

This is the essence of springtime with it’s zingy sweetness and vibrant colour!! So much love for this cordial from the wonderful Food Fox! Find her super easy recipe here on our weekly food column for the inspiring Pretty Blog.

Jacqui and Patrick are currently planning their beautiful wedding from different countries! Not even the distance between Aus and South Africa can dampen the bright spirits and radiant smiles of these two though… On their flying visit to the Cape we managed to literally squeeze in a few minutes to photograph a mini Lovebirds eshoot for them – I’m so glad we did!

This was also a great opportunity to bring out my new Sigma 50mm Art lens for a bit of a play – most of this shoot was taken with this little beauty at f1.8 – what a lens!!

So sadly Saturday was my last workshop for the year – but wow, it was such a great day! The questions were flowing, the cameras were clicking (like crazy!!) and that all makes me very happy :-D We had super beautiful light for our yummy food models and the wonderful team at the Demo Kitchen in Stellenbosch made sure we were all kept fed for the day. (The most incredible cauliflower soup I’ve ever had, btw!!) I hope this group went away with brains full and inspiration firing! Here are some shots of our set ups during the afternoon’s prac session.

When you have such radiant, happy faces on your screen all day editing becomes a pleasure :-) A sneak peek from gorgeous Jacqui and Patrick’s engagement shoot here in Elgin.
