Christo & Unine

Monday, 16 May 2016

One of our favourite shoots to date!
Not only were these two lovebirds so vibrant and energetic but they were up for anything and... they brought three photogenic doggies with! For us that'a the stuff dreams are made off

Harlem farm is a real treasure trove and we played around the old little ruin,the dam with a quaint boat and just let the three doggies {and Unine and Christo} run free!
Absolutely love the "Our beginning" board they brought along and all the glitter confetti they made themselves. It's so easy to photograph a couple who aren't not only clearly head over heels in love but adored being there with us!

Ps: the clouds were real! And yes, we did get a gentle sprinkle of raindrops before more clouds rolled in... and then... a beautiful rainbow...

 And some behind the scenes with the D&D team in their element... S and I are always thrilled to spend and afternoon in nature especially when there are some furry creatures around! :)

Our Anniversary

Monday, 9 May 2016

For our 8th wedding anniversary we wanted to do something special for ourselves. We wanted something that wasn’t bought but still tangible, an heirloom. And as we have been taking our own pictures long before the word "selfie" even existed (and have an ancient tripod to proof it!) we decided on a couple's shoot for ourselves instead of the traditional gift of bronze or pottery.
We wanted to use all the things we love; the little wood next to our house, our favourite colour hues... blues, grey, a touch of sparkle, some sneakers...and of course our two favourite studio assistants, Lola and Hunter.
Lola usually just turns out a little black blur or blob as she just cannot sit still but Hunter was truly born for the camera so off to the woods we went...
Steph and I also fostered a caracal from a tiny cub until he grew into a gorgeous, giant beast. He was successfully released into the wild but we had to pay homage to our darling Abakki with some sparkling ears!

Due to the freezing cold rolling in on our first afternoon halfway through taking the photographs, {leaving us cold, a little wet and windswept} the photos were actually done over two days and even though the locations look completely different it was all literally about 20 meters apart, our mystery wood close to the house and in the open veld right next two it. Two enchanted afternoons celebrating milestones,  love, life and everything in between...

If we would do this for ourselves... imagine what shoot we would do for you!
