Let me first introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me! My name is Gayle and I am crazy about photography, and dogs, and ice-cream, and crime mini-series on tv, braais (the South African word for barbeques) and the beach and flowers and .....you get the picture, there are so many things which I love, but I can honestly say that photography and dogs are my passions! How lucky am I that I get to do something which I absolutely love! I once read the following which is supposed to have been said by Confucious, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life!" How true is that, because each time I am behind my camera, and either photographing a wedding or a portrait, I still marvel at how fortunate I am, that I get to do something which I really and truly love!
One of my other passions is travelling and having been fortunate enough to travel to South America, the States, the Far East, obviously fairly extensively in Europe and of course, South Africa, my passport is ever ready and I am eagerly awaiting to do some more destination weddings! The last one I did was on the Caribbean Island of Curacao, and what an amazing experience that was! So if you are getting married or eloping to a magical destination, and think that we would be a great fit, then please do contact me, as I cannot wait to pack my suitcase, my camera bag, and get to the airport!
Incidentally, airports are another place which I love! Sounds crazy I know, but you get to witness so many interesting emotions there!! Where else do you get to see people expressing their love for each other, hugging good bye, not knowing when they will see each other again, to those just arriving and hugging, crying and laughing, all at the same time, expressing their pure joy at seeing their loved ones again!
So if you are a bride wanting the standard photos, of "one, two, three....and smile! "All look this way please, and ....smile", then I am not the photographer for you!!!
But, if you are wanting a photographer who is going to share in your day with you, capturing all of your raw emotions, from that first look, to the tears of joy when your father catches a glimpse of you, to the moment when you swop your rings and take your first breath as Mr and Mrs, bound together for life, to all those funny moments which are happening all around you, finally ending with your first dance together as one, then you need to contact me as soon as possible, because I want to share in your day, I want to capture all those emotional moments, those memories which once the day is long over, you will be drawn to again and again!
My job is to capture all those raw emotions for you, enabling you to cherish your wedding day forever and ever!
