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!

Model shoot with Noel in Cape Town

Model shoot with Noel in Cape Town

Cape Town model shoot

During one of my trips home to Cape Town, i made contact with Noel who was keen to do a shoot since he was going to be in Cape Town at the same time!! Model shoots are something which I really enjoy doing and sadly find that I don't do enough of!! So just a quick hint, if you are a model, wannbe model and would like to work with me, then please contact me!!

Table Mountain as a backdrop

The day which was scheduled for our shoot which was initially meant to be at one of Cape Town's gorgeous beaches, turned out to be a windy day.....actually it turned out to be a mega windy day, the kind of day where if you are wearing a dress or skirt, you definitely need weights in your hemline to keep from flashing your undies to all and sundry!! So after meeting at the beach it was decided that unless we wanted to be constantly chewing on sand, it would be best to move the shoot and drive to Table Mountain and have the gracious old lady as a mega backdrop!!

Noel, my model, did an amazing job trying to keep his composure while battling howling winds, Amber, our make up artist did an awesome job, while not only watching that our equipment stayed safe but that Noel and I did not get run over by any tourist buses while shooting along Table Mountain road!!

Model: Noel Schmidt

Make up artist: Amber Brandt (amberbrandt0@gmail.com)

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!

Sara and Stuart...engagement shoot at Llandudno Beach, Cape Town!!

Sara and Stuarts engagement shoot was an absolute fun event!! I am sure, having met most of their friends now, since their wedding was 2 weeks ago, their friends will ALL concur with me that Sara and Stuart are one crazy, fun loving and totally in love couple!!

Gorgeous Llandudno Beach as a backdrop for amazing coupleshoot

Llandudno Beach is an awesome place to shoot at and it did not let me down, providing a beautiful, almost majestic background for Sara and Stuart!! Not only was the light fantastic, but the sheer size of some of the boulders can only be described as having a wow effect!!

I don't think I need to write down in detail how much fun was had, just take a look at these photos and see for yourself and then get ready, because in a little while, I will be ready to blog Sara and Stuarts beautiful and yet again, fun-filled wedding!

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!

 

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.

Introducing Young Liam

Baby shoot with a gorgeous young family

There are some shoots which you just know before hand that you are going to love, and so it was that I packed my car with my equipment, looking forward to meeting young Liam for the first time!! Having done a few shoots already with Daniela and Christopher, I was quite excited to meet their son!! 

Yes I know that all babies are gorgeous, but Liam is not only gorgeous, he has the cutest personality at his all of 3 months!! He laughed, he gurgled and most of all, unwittingly pulled the funniest of faces resulting in me stopping the shoot for a few minutes as I laughed so much at his cute funny faces which he pulled!!

Daniela and Christopher, you are truly blessed to have such an amazing young son!

May he always bring you much love and joy!

I look forward to capturing Liam as he grows up!

In the mean time, go ahead and enjoy this beautiful young families photos!!
