Kirsten & Gerhardt | Engagement

I usually curse the (gail force!) south-easterly winds we get here in Cape Town during the summer, but today I am greatful for them.

Looking through the photos from Kirsten and Gerhard’s engagement session, I can’t help thinking that we might not have gotten all the cute shots we did, had we done the shoot on the beach as origionally planned. We opted for more sheltered spots in the city so as not to blow away and I’m really happy we did :)

Kirsten and Gerhardt even brought a few props of their own to use in their photos and I think it really added to the fun. A few days after the shoot Kirsten started a wedding blog called The bride with a blog, if you love all things wedding… hop across and give them some love!

I can not WAIT to photograph your wedding Kirsten and Gerhardt! I KNOW it’s going to be great fun!

Without further ado, here are some of my fave’s from their session..

I tell really great jokes..

Aren’t they cute? Walking down the road with their props an-all?

This last image is what it’s all about. Moments like these are the very reason I LOVE doing what I do.

    Beautiful work! The bench that you’ve got K & G lying and laughing on is one of the old SA benches with “Blankes” and “Nie Blankes” engraved on the now-missing top panel. So cool that lovers are free to canoodle and giggle anywhere they please!
