West Coast Glamour
West Coast Glamour

Finally managed to do my own post on our West Coast glamour shoot. This was such a dream to take part in and it is an experience that I will treasure for all of my days and look back on with such pride! This is the story of how it happened: I recently struck up a great friendship with make up artist, Rene du Plessis from Ophelia Paisley wedding supplier, and on a whim we decided to enter the South Bound Bride Styled shoot competition. The brief was that it should be South African in inspiration. We chatted and she told me of the time she lived in Langebann and her love for the West Coast, and soon we were dreamy up half dipped potjiekos pots! Luckyily for me we also are friends withe ladies at Blank Canvas (Cape Town) and a team was formed.. WE MADE THE TOP 5, flights were booked and we were off. We were blessed with the most incredible weather over that weekend (The Cape was absolutely miserable the weeknd before and after) YAY! Let me tell you, Paternoster was an absolute dream, the white architecture, the remoteness and the colour of that water will be etched in my memory forever! I’ll never forget the pinky sky and the smatterings of glitter on the inside of shells, in the seasand itself and of course on the water as the sun was setting. I cannot think of a more satisfying and fufilling oppurtunity as a photographer. These images are the culmination of so many people bring their creative best, and I was honoured to capture it for all of us! No pressure! My hope is that one person out there sees these images and decides to get married in our beautiful country or gives a gold dress a chance or “blings-up” some things they already had with a dab of mettalic paint! In fact I’ll be happy if you just sigh along with me at these dreamy shots….
