This was the horror weekend for all photographers – STORM WARNINGS in the news. Yes, this was really bad, Ingrid and Lumar from Pretoria getting married in Cape Town, wanted some nice romantic beach photos. Instead they got some really funky photos in the hotel. We had about 15 minutes outside and we really got some nice shots in that time. Luckily Ingrid and Lumar is such a great couple, they really didn’t panic and they just gave everything over to me. Their love and chemistry really made the photo session much easier, because “posing” chemistry is really difficult, they just did everything naturally.

This was the weekend that really tested all the wedding photographers,
this is why you pay more for photographers with experience, who can work in difficult circumstances and who can take those perfect shots when the rain clear for a few minutes.

I hope that you enjoy the photos.
I normally load 50-60 photos, but, at this wedding there was just too much photos, so, enjoy the 140+ photos of this wedding.

This is my tips for brides to be:
  1. Stay in love. It really show in photos.
  2. If you have the right photographer – don’t stress.
  3. Be adventures and do everything your photographers ask.

This was my last wedding for this wedding season. I hope that you enjoyed my blog this season. I will post some photos of weddings I did last year during the off season.

We took these photos in the Penthouse suite in The Bay Hotel, Thanx Gideon.
