Chiara and David: Engagement


Chiara and David are So Much Fun.  Seriously, with capital letters. They are getting married at Shepstone Gardens next month, and they wanted a funky, brightly-coloured location for their engagement shoot as a contrast to Shepstone’s secret garden feel. So we hit up Newtown and went crazy. At the end we went to the Mandela Bridge, and the light was just AMAZING, with the most fantastically wicked thunderclouds over town. I went crazy for it. Luckily David and Chiara are pretty crazy themselves (in the best way), and they thought it was awesome too. I had a blast with you guys; can’t wait for your wedding next weekend!

We went to a nearby street, where a bunch of guys were practising their skateboarding.

Loved this!

And then on to the Mandela Bridge. The sun was shining happily on the right of the picture, which is why they’re so lit up in front of the black clouds. I died of awesome overload.
