Couple Shoot: The story of Louise and Clyton

“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

Louise and Clyton is one of those couples that you can just see belong with each other. Despite the out of season windy weather I had a great time capturing there love story.

 

“They say a good love is one that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you can’t stop running simply because you keep on burning everything that you touch! I say that’s a good love; one that burns and flies, and you run with it!”
― C. JoyBell C.

Wedding Anniversary Shoot with Herman and Trudie

I approached Herman and Trudie Strauss and suggested we do a Anniversary shoot in her wedding dress. The lovely couple was delighted and Trudie dusted the dress off while Herman even got his wedding socks on.  The Willows provided a beautiful setting. The spring weather was at first not really what I expected . The wind blowing rather more like a Cape wind than what we are use to here in Bloemfontein. Luckily the wind died down a bit and provided us with just enough breeze to have some fun.  Trudie’s amazingly big and beautiful vail guaranteed heart stopping images.  They got all nostalgic remembering their wedding that also took place at the same wedding venue, The Willows, Bloemfontein.

“It’s a very dangerous state. You are inclined to recklessness and kind of tune out the rest of your life and everything that’s been important to you. It’s actually not all that pleasurable. I don’t know who the hell wants to get in a situation where you can’t bear an hour without somebody’s company.”

Wedding Vlok en Mariska – ALodge Bloemfontein

Vlok en Mariska Human got married March 2014 in Bloemfontein. Mudboots Creative Art and Photography had the honour of capturing the special day. Mudboots also created all of there wedding stationery. This  included menu, table numbers etc. Definitely a busy day. As my Mariska is also my sister, I was trying to be a bridesmaid and photographer all in one. Luckily Marlia, my second shooter did a wonderful job helping to capture those shots that I needed to be in. As well as some amazing behind the scene shots. While the ceremony was on a gaggle of geese walked by that turned out to be one of my favorite photos of the day.

The day started at Shawu Lodge. A venue conveniently situated in the center of Bloemfontein. Shawu Lodge provided a beautiful setting with large room, beautiful interiors, stairs as well as picture perfect outdoor areas. A venue I would definitely recommend to any Bride. We then moved on to A-Lodge. The A-Lodge provided the perfect venue for the outdoor ceremony while also having the perfect setting for the wedding reception.

Thier Turquoises, Black and silver complimented the White perfectly. A colour choice I definitively had a say in.
