Gareth and Andrea are getting married in March next year, so we met up one afternoon at the common in Noordhoek for their engagement shoot! I simple love this area…..it's quiet, scenic and so enveloped by nature! There are a few dogs about, walking their 2 legged humans and a few horse riders, but for the most part, we were on our own.
I met up with Grant and Lorinda in Kalk Bay for an earnly morning engagement photo shoot. Soft, flattering light can be lovely early morning, but the light changes very rapidly, so every minutes counts!
Their wedding will take place at Philadelphia's De Malle Meul en route the West Coast. This is an ideal spot for a Sunday lunch or wedding celebration! Rustic and quaint:)
I met up with Leo and Sharna on the expansive stretch of beautiful white sand and dark blue ocean on the Atlantic seaboard in Noordhoek for their engagement shoot.
At the base of Devil's Peak lies Rhodes Memorial, built in rememberance of Cecil John Rhodes. He owned a vast area of the lower slopes of Table Mountain, which is now part of UCT and Kirstenbosh National Botanical Garden.
St James, with its brightly coloured, Vicorian, bathing booths and tidal pool and rock pools, makes a lovely location for an early morning False Bay photo shoot. I met up with equally colourful Dumi and Ruwayda for their engagement photo session.
An early morning photo session at Kalk Bay Habour, followed by a well deserved cup of Cafe-Olympia coffee. Early morning shoot takes courage ( and setting multiple alarms), especially if you're a night owl like me. I don't often plan morning shoots, but it's worthwhile to arrange around certain locations, like busy harbours and crowded beaches.
Nick and Lee- Anne are getting married on a farm near Prins Albert! I dream of photographing beautiful Karoo weddings, so much excitement around their celebration:)
I met up with Deidre and Hilton one rainly morning at a beautiful ruin location, near Hout Bay. Fortunateyly the rain stopped within minutes of our arrival!
East Fort remains an enigma to many tourists and locals. About two centuries ago Hout bay was seen as the underbelly of the Cape and needed fortification, but it's exact historical significance remains unknown.
To modern day folk, it is a lovely picnic area and serves as a "gate way" point to the Table Mountain National Park.
East fort is an historical, international heritage site,linking SA to many foreign countries, but it is not currently protected.
Jenny and James can be described as ligand and receptor, if you can describe love in terms of neuro peptides! They are a perfect match. I say this, because I know Jenny Buckle and in my opinion they simply "fit" together, a biochemical match.
I also say this because Jenny is the program director of a company called REACH AUTISM and has done extensive research in the field of pervasive developmental gut-brain axis disorders.
