Kate & Rupert’s Trash the Dress

March 26, 2010

Kate and Rupert were married in February, and they opted to use their engagement shoot as a Day-After-Trash-The-Dress session instead. Because we had very little time for portraits on the wedding day, we started at their venue, Turbine Hall, and did some more shots there, and then moved on to the streets of Newtown. Oh, graffiti and grunge, how I love you.

Rupert and Kate were married on the 20th of February, and we did this shoot on the 20th of March, so when I saw the numbered parking bays I made them lie down in number 20. Nothing like a bit of special meaning in a parking lot :-)

Laura & Gustav’s Engagement Shoot

March 24, 2010

Laura is Australian, Gustav is South African, and they met in the UK. After conducting a long-distance relationship, they’re finally getting married in Australia later this year. That, unfortunately, means that I don’t get to photograph it, but I know it’s going to be fabulous. And at least I got to photograph their just-as-fabulous engagement session! Laura found me on Rock ‘n Roll Bride, and contacted me a few months ago about doing their e-shoot. They decided on a fun session on the street where they live, and also wanted to incorporate the travel aspect of their relationship, so they brought along some globes, a world map, vintage suitcases, and more lovenotes and cards than I have ever seen in my life. I love props! And I love these two.

The rain also showed up for a bit, and then cleared up beautifully. Very obliging. :-)

Shoana & Chris: Backyard Wedding with a Difference

March 16, 2010

 

Shoana and Chris were married last weekend on their family’s plot in Northvale, near Krugersdorp. A more relaxed bride I’ve never seen (“You can’t find my shoes? Ok, I’ll just walk barefoot then!”), and a more fun family, helping out with every little detail, would be hard to find! When I arrived with my 2nd shooter Mandy, the guys were cutting grass and cosmos for the table centrepieces, the flowergirls were decorating the cupcakes, and the ring-bearers were putting out homemade fortune cookies on the tables. It was wonderful. The ceremony took place in an area cleared of long grass, and we took Shoana and Chris’ portraits right there in the veld. The skies remained sunny for the ceremony, and then the gigantic stormclouds blew up right in time to get some amazing sky shots. Perfection!
