When I look at these shoots, I can hardly believe we did this. Mits and I have come a long way in the past 4years and it’s thanks to all my couples. Without their confidence in our ideas we wouldn't have seen some of the most beautiful places. If you've ever seen spring blossoms you'll agree with me when I say it takes your breath away. I must admit timing these flowers all the way from Johannesburg was not fun. I'm a perfectionist and once I have an idea in my head it very difficult to let go of the idea. How beautiful would a small intimate wedding would look in between these isles of trees? Looking at these photos now I almost forget that it was about 10degrees that day. The 3 of us were warm but Sheetal braved the cold in this beautiful outfit. Their Indian wedding took place in summer place Johannesburg around March this year, we managed to shoot them in the wedding outfit but not the reception outfit hence we decided to do another shoot. There colour of her reception lehenga was so bright and vibrant, she looked beautiful in any location you put her in. I was quite chuffed that the mountains turn purple in franschhoek at sunset, it matched here outfit perfectly! If you missed there beautiful garden wedding on our blog click here
Shoot anything in India is always such a pleasure especially with Destination Indian wedding photography being our line of work. Every corner and ally presents a new photo opportunity. It really is a photographer dream. The gateway of India is a popular landmark in India. I remember it faintly from a family trip we took to India 8years ago. Faintly, because we were moody
teenagers at the time who refused to get out of the car and only saw it through a car window in between a sleep. Thou times have changed since then and even thou sleeping is still my absolute favourite pass time, I tend to see far more of the places I visit and now hate being hotel bound.
Visiting India presents its own challenges but visiting India during monsoon season presents an entirely different set of challenges. For this shoot monsoon season is probably the best time to shoot at the Gateway. Rainy weather means that it won’t be as crowed, partially cloudy skies take the focus of all the people in the background and the best thing of all, we get awesome reflections. This was a fun afternoon shoot with lots on puddles and soaked Shoes. Enjoy the pictures and don’t forget to like us on Facebook
The weather in Johannesburg, South Africa right now is boarder line unbearable. It’s freezing! Right now, I’m sitting in front of the heater and wishing I could be in Phuket right now (The mailers from trip advisor showing the top 10 beach destinations don't help). So to my Johannesburg and Cape Town readers, I’m sorry if this post makes you wish it were summer already.
Jacelyn and Elmo met in an online chat room 10years ago. They decided to spend their 10year anniversary in Phuket, Thailand. The couple live in Singapore and seem to travel a lot, although when asked what would be there ultimate photo destination they choose South Africa, Cape town. We are anxiously waiting for you guys to come visit so we can get many more happy clicks. We did this shoot in old Phuket town where we were not short of amazing textures and colors to work with.
The couples must see and do’s in Phuket:
Must see: Promthep Cape
Must do: Snorkeling in phi phi island
Must eat: White Box restaurant (Romantic Sea Side Dinner)
