Snow Mountains Styled Bride {Stellenbosch}

So like all the other Capetonians today, I was totally mesmerized with the snowfall we experienced last night. {Something we don’t often experience in this magnitude in Cape Town}

So as I was driving this morning, seeing the beautiful snowfall on the mountains, the idea of doing a quick shoot (and yes it had to be quick since it was rainy and cold and really miserable) showcasing the mountain tops covered with snow was fueled by another friend and bride Wendi (view her wedding in CapeTown) told me that it really was a magnificent view!

Reza & Natasha – Cape Town Wedding {Pigalle Restaurant}

When I first met Reza & Natasha I was super excited to have been chosen for their special day.

It is at times like this, when you meet people like these two, that I really love to be a wedding photographer. Since you can not help but feel like you know them for years. They radiate warmth and love! ~ Who does not want to capture that!?

They truly are a fun couple, best friends and always up for a laugh or a joke.

Being part of their special day, was so much fun. Apart from Cape Town weather being miserable and rainy, they were very brave and the photo shoot took place although it was raining throughout.

Hennie & Mercia ~ Campsbay Engagement Shoot

Meet Mercia & Hennie, all the way from Carltonville. These two were so much fun to photograph.

They are planning their wedding in Cape Town next year,{can not wait} and for their engagement shoot they have picked the majestic Camps Bay as the setting.

The weather {which was absolutely dreadful for a few days before the shoot} cleared up to have absolutely no wind, no clouds or even a hint of the storm that has passed just a day or two before.

Although shooting mid-day does present itself with a few challenges, I am super happy with the result!

There are so many little ways to do this, that will mean the world to her and make her feel special. Here is how:
