It was Keanu and Sofia’s matric dance on Friday night. They’re head boy and head girl at De La Salle Holy Cross College in Linden.
I met them in the afternoon at Morrell’s in Northcliff for a pre-matric portrait shoot… and family shoot. What a perfect location for portraits! I love using Morrell’s, there are just so many nooks and crannies to explore and use for photos. We used the Morrell’s Farmhouse for the portraits, and then walked across the road to the Manor House for the family photos.
The couple were going to arrive at the school in Maclaren… so of course we needed to take a few photos with the gorgeous car.
The tradition at the school, is the cars arrive at the school and the couples get to walk down a red carpet to the entrance to the dance. One of the best parts, is that the whole school is basically there to cheer them on and watch the fashion parade. It’s such an special way to start the evening.
The theme for the evening was Italian, and at the end of the red carpet, there was a passport control stand which was pretty cool. They got their tickets stamped and were frisked before they were allowed to enter.
