Karoo Stories

By WeddingNo Comments

The Karoo.  A place with real people, Genuine stories and vast dry landscapes.  It is the canvas that Stanley and Elaine chose for their wedding vows.

As I pulled in to Rooiberg Lodge after a 4.5 hour drive from Cape Town, I could smell the rain hanging over the landscape in thick dark clouds.  There were still a good 24 hours before the ceremony would take place and some rain would be very welcome in this dry, yet rich desert plain.

Stanley and Elaine’s story started 9 years ago.  Both small town kids with a natural love for the big outdoors.  They definitely chose a fantastic venue to express this part of their relationship with friends and family traveling wide and far to attend this one-of-a-kind celebration.

It was most certainly one for the books!

A Fair Wedding

By WeddingNo Comments

Words simply cannot explain.  Goosebumps still let my arm hair raise when I think about the strong sense of love that was so overwhelmingly present on this day.  The ceremony was one of a kind.  Rye-lee looked stunning and beyond and their spontaneous laughter, tears and praise filled the canopy of trees under which they promised themselves to each other.

I want to write a whole book on this beautiful day, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking instead.

Snowscape

By PhotographyNo Comments

This was one of the most daring shoots I’ve done so far. Very different from my usual style and genre, but it turned out to be so much fun and such a great learning phase.
My model, Aletta was such a trooper and without her this shoot would never have materialized.  We met a day before the shoot in a Starbucks cafe to throw some ideas around.

And lucky that we did it on this day since the snow came really early this year when it was still relatively hot and it all melted within a day. Originally we had all sort of ideas but we lacked the time to plan it all.  Now we are waiting for the next snowfall to have those ideas come to life.

Autumn Love Confession

By Couples, WeddingNo Comments

There is something truly magical about autumn in Korea.

Eunshil and Yungi chose such a beautiful time of the year for their wedding pictorial.  Beautiful yellow and orange leaves were painting the streets of Asan in bright colours.  The love between this couple had such an amazingly strong presence during the shoot and the way they interacted with each other reminded me of something writers like Rumi would get their inspiration from.

I feel blessed to have shared in their love.
