Same Sex Couple Shoot – Bennie & Uhann

I had the privilege to do another same sex couple shoot with this stunning couple. I did Bennie & Uhann's wedding almost 3months ago and now we did another shoot. I wanted to expand my portfolio for same-sex couples a bit and I asked them if they would be keen to do another shoot. And they were! We shot on Blouberg beach on a cool cloudy day with stunning light. But let me not keep you longer, here is some of the pictures!

Model portfolio shoot – Lee-Ann

I often get girls and guys who come to shoot their very first model portfolio shoot with me. I love these shoots, as is it lets one be creative and you get to work with some awesome people. Lee-Ann has been in front of the camera once or twice but more for fun shoots and not a full on shoot. She wanted to do 3 looks, one sexy, one smart and one fun. So we decided to work with an industrial type location, the last two was done in my studio. For the last look, we covered her in paint! Man that was fun and messy. I felt so sorry for her afterwards as we had to literally spray her down with the garden hose, and the water was COLD. Here is some of the images, please feel free to share.

Worcester Couple Shoot – Gideon & Gretha

I recently had the pleasure of meeting this lovely couple for their Worcester Couple shoot. We shot at a few locations all over Worcester and when we finally got to the last location, we were swarmed by tiny biting insects. I would say that the great images made up for all the scratching the next week LOL. Here is some of those images, feel free to share.

Bon Cap Wedding – Jaco & Chanie

I just love a good Bon Cap wedding. Its one of the best venues in the Robertson area for sure! This is my last wedding for this half of the 2016 wedding season and it was one of my first at Bon Cap in quite some time. But it's not the last for 2016! This is really how small the world is. Jaco and Chanie booked me via Michelle, the owner of Bon Cap. They live and work in Holland and when they came to South Africa over December, we just had a squeeze in a quick meeting. So as meetings go, we chatted about what they do etc and where they were going from here. They were going to a friends wedding in Oudshoorn that weekend. I only knew one person getting married that weekend in Oudtshoorn and that was a family friend of ours, Robert. Robert's sister and I grew up together and Robert and my sister again and we have had many good parties over December holidays together, but I never met Jaco. Jaco was going to be the best man at Robert's wedding! So that just shows how really small the world is. Well here is the photos, go and check them out and feel free to share with friends and family.

Villiersdorp wedding – Pierre & Ledrie

I was booked for this wedding quite some time ago and it was my first Villiersdorp wedding. I have done the odd shoot around the town and mostly it has been at the stunning Theewaterskloof dam with its old dead trees. So to say that I was excited for an actual wedding here is an understatement. We planned to go and shoot at the dam with the old trees, but we almost had to cancel it due to the wind on the day. But we were brave and we headed down to find it not that unpleasant at all. We got some cracker shots. The venue, which was the local agricultural showgrounds, was decorated so awesome. I just loved the look and feel of it all. Thanks, Ledrie and Pierre for having me photograph your big day, you guys were awesome! Please feel free to share with friends and family.

Cape Town Engagement shoot – Deano & Judith

I think it's about time to get some of my images up on my blog again, man it's been long. So let's start off with the Cape Town Engagement Shoot of Deano and Judith. I have known these two for some time already and a couple of years back, I did the shoot for them at Judith's 21st birthday. Now a couple of years later, man how time flies, they contacted me again to shoot their wedding later this year! What a stunning couple, inside and out and I am really looking forward to this wedding in November! Please feel free to share with friends and family.
