Nicky & Gibbie: Trash the Dress
Nicky and I were in the same class in matric, but we probably never would have kept in contact if it weren’t for Facebook (I love Facebook). Nicky and Gibbie were married last year in October, and decided to do a Trash the Dress with me as an anniversary celebration. I think it’s a great idea on so many levels: (a) it gives you the chance to dress up in your wedding best again, have some fun, be in love, and generally get some great portraits of yourselves; and (b) even if you don’t put on the wedding dress and suit again, you can still get some fabulous couple photos to document this stage of your lives. Nicky requested graffiti, and I begged them to use the Nelson Mandela Bridge as well, as I’d been dying to shoot there, so we did both! We went way overtime because I was just having so much fun…my favourite kind of shoot!
