I met Paul and Gina in Newtown this morning for their (belated) anniversary photoshoot. I’ve done plenty of family photoshoots for them, and it was awesome to finally get to take photos of them without the kids running around… just the two of them
Well, Newtown was the plan until we got there and realised that although it was a public holiday, all the construction workers were hard at work and all the parking spots were taken and there was NO space for awesome photos… so plan B… Wits University, and in fact, it was absolutely perfect!
LOVED the ivy and stone walls we found today
This is my favourite shot from today…
And right at the end, I asked them to sit on a bench and tell each other a story, and I stood far enough away that I couldn’t hear but was comfortable for my long lens to capture their interaction…
It was Talia and Mark’s engagement party on Sunday evening. It was a cocktail evening held at Katy’s Palace Bar in Kramerville Sandton. OMW what a magnificent venue!! I reckon it must have the best view of the Sandton skyline. It’s such a pity the clouds didn’t play along with my ideas of taking photos of the sunset.
I absolutely loved the way that Otto de Jager and his team did the decor… it was spot on for an event held in a space that’s above an antique shop. From the metal bunnies to the blue and white vases to the simple green flowers and the distressed furniture… it was just magnificent!
OK I’ve gone a little overboard with decor photos today… but it’s worth it
I reckon that view would have been more spectacular later on…
Remember Byron and Monique’s photoshoot in the old station in Newtown a few weeks ago that was completely rained out? Well, I met up with them again on Sunday… this time we started under the bridge where the best graffiti is. Just love that the colours that Monique and Byron wore worked so well in this setting
And then of course, we had to use the Nelson Mandela bridge for a few photos too I LOVE that structure, and the view of the city from there, and we were really lucky that the bridge was quiet.
It was such a beautiful day in the city
It was dreary and cold and rainy and to be perfectly honest, a completely miserable morning to do a photoshoot, however, Monique and Byron were still game for their shoot today. I met them this morning bright and early with big plans, but the weather dashed them most of them… so we decided to do some photos in the old station in Newtown before setting another date for the rest of their shoot.
I’m telling you, this couple are amazeballs… not many people will trudge through sludge like I made them do this morning to get into the station but I like what we did… and I cannot WAIT for part 2 of their shoot in a few weeks time, we’re going to have so much more fun when we’re not cold and wet
There’s great excitement in our family at the moment, and a LOT of talk about weddings and colours and dresses and venues and flowers… etc… because… you see… my sister has got engaged
I took Elaine and Bryan to Braamfontein, Newtown and the top of a hill today to do their engagement shoot… and we included some photos for their save-the-date (which are not on my blog post… I’ll put those up when they’ve been sent)
