Razonne and Jerry's special day.......

Wedding at Rondekuil Estates

A few months ago you may recall that I posted photos of Razonne and Jerry's couple shoot in Betty's Bay. This was such a fun shoot that I was really excited and looking forward to their wedding day. Their exuberance and joy at finally saying their vows was palpable and you will no doubt agree that this couple looked absolutely stunning on their day! They laughed and smiled all the way through the day, and the fact that their best man forgot to bring the rings to the ceremony did not ruin the day but even enhanced the day by cracking them up with laughter while they waited for their rings to be brought to the ceremony! These two are so well loved by their family and friends, evidenced by the amazing speeches given during the evening celebrations! 

Razonne and Jerry, thank you for choosing Catchlight Image Photograhy to capture your very special day! We loved every minute of your wedding.

Sara and Stuart, a magical wedding at Zewenwacht Wine Estate

By now you will most probably have seen the recent couple photos which I did for Sara and Stuart at gorgeous Llandudno Beach, and am sure that on looking at these photos, if you only noticed one thing, it would definitely be how much these two love each other!! They have each found their soul mates, their best friends and their partners for life!

I was privileged to be their wedding photographer and to bear witness to their love, and to their vows being said in front of all their friends and family! The backdrop for their wedding was Zewenwacht Wine Estate which you will all agree is a simply stunning location!

Sara and Stuart have known each other for 10 years, and their love and friendship is definitely something which shines through on all of their photos!

But don't take my word for it... see for yourselves!

I hope that you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed capturing these very special moments!

Introducing Alet!

Introducing Alet!

Fun shoot in Kleinmond South Africa!

A little while back I had the pleasure of photographing Alet on Kleinmond Beach in the Western Cape, South Africa!!

From the first moment, Alet was an absolute natural in front of the camera and we had a lot of fun together producing these photos, whether we were playing with scarves, or simply running back from the waters edge to avoid being splashed by the waves, we simply had FUN!!!

Summer shoot from South Africa to Germany

One of the things which I love most about my job, besides of course getting to meet so many great people, is that I am able to travel and capture summer in Cape Town, before heading north again and eventually capturing summer in Germany!!

Look forward to capturing YOU in front of my camera soon!!

Enjoy seeing Alet on Kleinmond Beach!

Married in Austria......photos done in Cape Town on their honeymoon!

Married in Austria......photos done in Cape Town on their honeymoon!

The fact that I met Laura and Ivan was really down to an amazing coincidence!!

They got married in Austria during the summer and as time and careers permitted, they decided to take their honeymoon in Cape Town during early November!! This is clearly when the stars were already aligning our meeting, because as luck would have it, I was also planning on going back to Cape Town during November!! So you have on the one hand, a young Austrian couple planning their honeymoon in Cape Town, naturally flying from Vienna on Emirates airline, and yours truely, planning a trip home, from Frannkfurt to Cape Town, also on Emirates, via Dubai!!

The next amazing alignment of the stars making sure that we met, was that they happened to sit in front of me on the flight from Dubai down to Cape Town!! Emirates being the good, service orientated airline that they are, delivered a honeymoon cake to the young couple which of course immediately got my attention and so I gave them my card, after telling them that I am a wedding photographer and the rest as we say, is history!! 

We met up a few days later in Cape Town, Laura wearing her beautiful wedding dress, Ivan in dress clothes, but sadly he forgot to pack fancy shoes, but hey, no problem when you are doing a shoot mostly at the beach, then surely barefoot is the way to go!!

Laura and Ivan, I so enjoyed meeting the two of you, photographing the two of you and then joining you for breakfast after our shoot!! I hope that the rest of your honeymoon was awesome and that you had a good safe flight back to Austria!

Enjoy your photos!

Tamzyn and Dewald

During a trip home to Cape Town in November, I had the opportunity to photograph Tamzyn and Dewald's engagement shoot!! All of this was organised while i was here in Germany, and thus this was the first time that we met, but sometimes there are just people who you click with, and within a few minutes, we were laughing, chatting as if we had met years ago!! 

Tamzyn and Dewald met a couple of years back through mutual friends, but at the time, Tamzyn was not free, so Dewald waited patiently until his future wife was free, and the  rest as they say, "is history!"

Tamzyn and Dewald, it was such a privilege to meet you both and to work with you!!

I am super excited to photograph your wedding in February 2017!!

Enjoy your photos!

xoxo

A Photoshoot with a senior dog called Quintus!

A Photoshoot with a senior dog called Quintus!

Family shoot with a difference!

I love doing shoots where fur babies are included, but sometimes, there's a shoot which touches me more than others, simply because I understand that the photos which I am going to produce, are going to be treasured because in a little while, one of the models may not be around. This was one of those shoots!

Quintus is a beautiful senior citizen, 14 years old, who unfortunately is suffering with terminal cancer! A few months back, Quintus was diagnosed with a cancerous growth in his paw! This was subsequently removed, and all was well for a time. Then during August this year, at a routine examination, a rather large lump was found in his neck, almost the size of a half a tennis ball! The vet has advised "his mother" that the growth is in the lymph nodes and sadly, the cancer seems to be a very aggressive cancer and is fast growing.

Couple shoot shortly before sunset!

"Love at first sight!"

Those are the words which Bettina used when describing their first meeting, some 4 years ago!

How wonderful when 2 souls have been searching for each other, to then find each other and to know that "this is it!" That you have finally come home and found your soul mate!

Bettina went on to say that together they have so much fun, they are able to talk about anything and everything and they simply love being together!! 

Photographing Bettina and Thomas was a lot of fun for me as I could feel their energy, feel their emotions and as I have previously mentioned, that's what I love about my job: I get to capture people showing their emotions and after all, isn't life just one gallery of emotions!

Enjoy the photos!

Kerstin and Pascal a gorgeous summer wedding in Germany

Elegant wedding at a German wine estate

Every wedding is beautiful!

Every wedding is romantic!

Every bride is beautiful!

Every groom is handsome!

But sometimes, you come across a wedding which can be described as everything above, and even more!! This is the way I felt about Kerstin and Pascal's wedding. Kerstin looked simply stunning. Pascal looked handsome. Every detail of their outdoor ceremony had been finely catered to, and their table decorations, one could see , had been lovingly chosen, each detail hand picked!! 

Have a look at their photos and become a part of their day!

Couple shoot amongst ancient oak trees

Sometimes without really knowing the couple, you have the feeling that you are meeting two hearts, two souls who are just simply destined to be together!! So it was with Alisa, and Heiko! The flow between these two, the looks, the syncing of hearts beating, the coming together without me having to direct the two,it was simply bearing witness to magic!

These are the couples who make my day, who make it worthwhile to go out on a Sunday afternoon, to leave my family behind and to go out and be a witness to the magic which these two create with their raw emotions which they were not afraid to show!

Bride + Groom + Dogs = The perfect wedding!

Bride + Groom + Dogs = The perfect wedding!

Wedding Couple who included their dogs!

I love dogs!! I cannot say that or emphasize that enough, so let me repeat myself just in case you missed that first part......I love dogs!!! So you can imagine how excited I was to receive a call from Natascha asking whether I would be interested in shooting their wedding since she had seen my social media pages where I had waxed on about dogs, and since she is a huge dog lover, she felt that the fit was just right!!!! Also, her dogs are not the smallest so she needed somebody who would firstly not be afraid of dogs, and secondly, was not afraid of large dogs!! I fitted both those categories but imagine my disappointment when i heard that the date of her wedding co-incided with me being in Curacao, shooting another wedding!!! Sigh!!  But since Catchlight Image does also have 2 other photographers supporting me and shooting weddings when i am simply not able to do so, and one of my other photographers is equally crazy about dogs, we knew that in the end, this was just going to be one of those situations, where things were going to work out!!

We met one evening, where we spent time chatting about the upcoming wedding and of course, dogs!!! 

This kind of wedding was always something i dreamt about....a bride walking down the aisle and including her fur babies in her wedding plans!!! I am still really excited about this wedding, and of course, the beautiful fur babies who got to be a part of this very special day!

So contact me if you are a bride, and you are passionate about including your dogs into your wedding day, I am sure that we are a perfect fit!!
