Imagine …its holiday time …the wedding season is over …its time to rest and let your hair down ….but it never happens! How can you go on holiday when you love what you do …and having nothing to photograph or having no beautiful images to edit puts you in a flat spin ….so what do you do ….you go out and play …and you invite all the suppliers to come join the party! And that is why we do styled shoots …to simply carry on playing and to work with the talented wedding industry suppliers! Well i suppose there might be other reasons ….but this way sounds more fun …with quite a bit of truth to it!
I have been fortunate to work with so many talented people on this shoot! Firstly, a big thank you to Jessica Jane Jewellery for some really unique jewellery! Aartsappel in Paarl supplied us with the most artistic bouquets and hair pieces! Clarita Smit Make-up did a superb job with the brief, I could not have been happier! Olivelli Cape Town supplied us with the most exquisite dresses! And MT Ferreira, the Events & guesthouse Manager of Diamant Estate, gave us free reign with this most picturesque venue which overlooks acres of vineyards and lush countryside and is at the foot of the Paarl Mountain and is a definite treasure in the Agter-paarl.
And finally, a huge thank you to Topco models for sending us the fun, infectious and playful, Rafaella Lemes who was a joy to work with as well as a big thank you to Julian Naderer for being my knight in shining armour and being our handsome, charming groom!
