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!

Lace and Elegance

Elegant wedding in a German Castle

The moment I saw this dress, that was it for me!!! I was totally besotted with this dress, I'm not even sure that I can use the word besotted in line with a wedding dress, but nevertheless, you get the idea!! This dress was to me, absolute perfection!! The lace, the elegance, the lines, the way the dress fitted Daniela!! Sheer perfection!!

This was a day like no other! We started off early in the morning, capturing all the little moments of Daniela getting ready and getting dressed! We had fun photographing Christopher who was totally cool and laid back!

Capturing their portraits was also so easy!! Very little direction was required from me, their looks of love, Daniela gazing up at her Prince, all of that made it so easy to capture the love and beauty which surrounded us throughout the day!!

Curacao Beach Weddng

Curacao Beach Weddng

Destination wedding: Curacao!

How lucky was I to get to photograph a beautiful beach wedding on the dream Caribbean Island of Curacao!!! For those of you who are unsure where Curacao is, it is a tiny island lying approximately 65 kms (40 miles) north of Venezuela, and has the most beautiful beaches, amazing fresh fish and shell fish, and not forgetting, the most beautiful and friendly people too! If you want to swim in crystal clear water, then Curacao is the place to fly to!!

Jo and Shercinio travelled all the way from Holland to say their vows on a tiny Caribbean beach surrounded by their family and friends, surrounded by all their loved ones, their day was absolutely perfect in every way! As you can imagine, the day was hot, the sea was blue and crystal clear, the groom was handsome and the bride was simply breathtaking!

I loved every minute of being fortunate enough to share in their day and being able to capture their special moments!

Go ahead and enjoy looking at the photos!

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!

xoxo

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!

Intimate wedding on an early winters day

Winter wedding in Germany!

Early December in Germany can be a very dark day also bringing a lot of snow with it, but all brides are just meant to have the perfect day, and Simone was not to be denied this either! Early December, Simone said her vows with her best friend and soul mate, Reinhard, in what was a small intimate wedding, with Catchlight Image doing the honours in terms of capturing their special moments!

Beatrice and Peter

Wedding in Germany!

Beatrice and Peter asked me to photograph their wedding after having come to know me when I photographed Beatrice's daughter and her family a few years back!! She told me that after seeing her granddaughters photos, she decided there and then, when she and Peter set a date, she would definitely want me to photograph a wedding!! Of course you can imagine how happy I was to hear that!! Meeting Peter and Beatrice was a wonderful time because they were so excited to show me around their cottage which they had completely revamped, taking their time to source every minute detail which would be used to change what was initially a very old and very rundown cottage to what they now turned it into!! A beautiful, tastefully designed cottage with hidden nooks and crannies where one could relax and have a direct view to their gorgeous little garden, which would be the backdrop for their couple shoot on the day of the wedding!! Every little detail which you see in the background of the couple shoot photos, was a little gem found by Beatrice, even down to the old bicycle!!

Summer garden wedding

Summer garden wedding

Summer Garden wedding

Emma and Georg had their garden wedding in late September 2015, and by all standards, that time of the year should still have had reasonable weather!!! The weather gods apparently did not get that newsflash, and driving to the wine farm that morning, I had very real concerns that the garden wedding would not be able to take place in the actual garden, but would rather have to be moved indoors!!

There is however an old saying, which says, "Happy is the bride whom the sun shines on"and Emma was certainly not to be disappointed!! Literally about 30 minutes before the ceremony was due to begin, the clouds parted, the sun came out, and the staff frantically set out the garden chairs, arranging everything perfectly, so that Emma and Georg were able to enjoy their planned garden 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!!
