Tag Archives: 12 Apostles wedding

It’s no mean feat planning an entire wedding in South Africa all the way from the Netherlands! Daniella wanted to get married in her home country with family and friends all close, and I’m sure the sun-drenched views over the ocean from the 12 Apostles made it an easy decision for Dieter :-D They braved some serious coastal Cape winds to celebrate along the shores of the Atlantic and start their life together… So much love… Assisted by the wonderful Illyan Cloete and fantastic second shooter Angelique Smith Photography.

We caught the last rays of light burning orange on these magnificent mountains behind Bakoven! Gorgeous Daniella and Dieter’s sneak peek from their beautiful 12 Apostles wedding. Oh how I love South Africa!

Anchen and Brandon were originally guests at the gorgeous Elgin wedding of another one of my couples – Karen & Doug. We’ve been chatting so much over the last year and since they drove out back to Elgin for their wintery Lovebirds eshoot earlier this year it’s really felt like we’ve become friends, not just client and service provider :-) Their wedding was such a fun (and beautiful!!) day and as much as I’m not the bravest in rush hour Cape Town traffic we managed to get down to the stunning 15 on Orange hotel for the guys photos and back to 12 Apostles for the girls photos and the wonderful wedding itself, without too much incident :-) I was assisted on the day by the super helpful and lovely Claire Harries Photography who also helped with the gorgeous guest shots at canapes – thanks Claire! Enjoy the photos of a beautiful day on the Cape Town coastline and two lovebirds starting their lives together :-D (I love the very last shot of the night in the 12A elevator – some fun at the end of the day :-))

Brandon, bag and BMW. A bit of fun with the groom’s portraits :-)

Oh how classy and gorgeous is Anchen??? Perfection…

There’s still a nip in the air as winter winds down and a quietness out here in Elgin that you never get at any other time of year. The ground is still sleepy and spring still a few weeks off. I love shooting during winter (when it isn’t raining ;-)) because of the calm colours and low skies that diffuse the light so beautifully -you always get the best and gentlest skin tones during winter shoots. Anchen, Brandon and I drove all the way up to the top of Elgin to Mofam River Lodge for their Lovebirds engagement shoot and found the most magnificent river’s edge waiting for us! It felt like we had found a little bit of the American Rocky mountains, complete with fishermen on the lake, plaid shirts, cut logs and pine forests :-) I just LOVE this shoot and I hope you all enjoy the photos from my first session of the season! Anchen and Brandon, I can’t wait for a totally different vibe at your 12 Apostles wedding in November!! I hope you guys love the pics :-)… Make-up by the wonderfully talent Marli Basson.
