Behind the Scenes of the February Issue of Splendid Affairs Magazine

January 28, 2010

And if that title isn’t self-explanatory, I don’t know what is. :-) Last week I got together with Eve of Splendid Affairs, Sam from Lashline, and two beautiful girls, Cat and Zindre, at the AMAZING Shepstone Gardens, and photographed the heck out of over a dozen gorgeous wedding dresses. I was in my element with all the different styles and hairdos, not to mention the seventeen million places you can photograph at Shepstone Gardens.

The magazine will be out in early February, but here’s a look at some of what went on behind the scenes:

Just a sneak peek of goodness to come. :-) It was threatening rain the entire day, and in fact it did come down while the make-up was being done, but then it kindly let up for us to do our thing. This isn’t the first time that’s happened to me at Shepstone. There must be a kind of magic there.

Capturing the Feeling

January 21, 2010


I’m just finishing editing Mel & Graeme’s wedding, and I found these two pictures that just sum up the feel of the wedding for me.  Sitting at the reception after the ceremony, listening to the fabulous African jazz band, just feeling the happiness pervading the crowd, and the love Mel and Graeme have for each other and for everyone there, I just felt so chilled and happy, even though I was technically working.

Can you feel it?
