Tershia and Himesh are tying the knot this December. She is moving down to Cape Town after the wedding hence we thought a Cape Town engagement shoot would be a perfect location. Especially since the wedding will be in Pretoria as is custom in Gujarati weddings for the bride's family to host the function in their hometown. This was yet another early morning shoot. We are so used to shooting super early that we didn’t realize that the sun only comes up at about 7 in Cape Town. The concept for this shoot was, colourful and fun with a dash of amazing scenery. Horses on the beach have always been something I dreamt of shooting and I must say that this August was filled with dream shoots. It was almost as if I had to keep pinching myself to check if it all was real. So a huge thank you goes out to all the couples that made this august possible and so amazing for Mitesh and myself. I can’t wait to share the rest on the blog and our Facebook page. We are looking forward to all your comments. go to http://www.facebook.com/DesignerphotoSA for more
What I thought was turning out to be a very mild winter at the time of this shoot was definitely not the case this week as we actually had snow fall in Johannesburg. Tiya and Arya's shoot was our last bit of winter. These girls are gorgeous. We did one bit of the shoot in bright fun playful colours and the other bit was pink and pretty. The bluish sky and golden light on the day of the shoot was picture perfect. We all where supper dusty after the shoot but looking at the images I'd say it was well worth it.
Bhavani and Aakash first met at a Science expo in high school and later started dating when they both moved to Johannesburg. The couples wedding took place at Kendra in Durban.
Bhavani says the highlight of her wedding day was when she walked onto the stage and Akaash threw petals down for her as she walked in. The couple honeymooned in Koh Samui in Thailand.

We simply loved this shoot. It was perfect from the weather to the couple. This location was an idea for about two and a half years. I must say that i couldn't have imagined it to be more perfect. Bhavani has to be one of our biggest Facebook fans and has been promoting us even before we did her wedding. So we hope she loves her pics more then any of our other pics...:)
