Camilla is the kind of girl who loves bling, rich sensual colours, spicy smells and exotic foods. She loves opulence, OTT and Kim Kardashian and wasn’t going to settle for a traditional wedding. They didn’t have the budget to get married at the Taj Mahal or some other Indian palace and created their own version of a Bollywood/Arabian Nights themed wedding instead.
I have never really been one for competitions in fact I have only entered one photography competition in my whole life. This was the Nikon awards which were held last year and even then I didn’t enter a single wedding pic. A while back I stumbled on The Fearless Photographers site and was blown away.
When I think back to Erin-Leigh and Greg’s wedding, I think of the gorgeous dresses (all made by Erins’ very talented Mom), the pretty decor (done by their family friend Sandy from SweetP), the crazy wind and the ridiculously cute flower girls in their wings, tutus and gumboots. But more importantly I recall the amazing family bonds and strong friendships that were so prevalent and obvious.
Carla is South African Champion belly dancer and a really lovely girl! We took these pictures yesterday and I just cannot believe she was nervous for the shoot as she rocked it! I look forward to our next session, we had so much fun!!
I met Tresor for the first time whilst photographing one of Durban’s hot new music talents, Holly. Tresor came to help out and I was struck by the amazing light that he carries. Hard to describe unless you have met him but he just has a warm glow about him. Tresor meaning treasure in french is from the Congo and came to South Africa in 2007 not knowing how to speak a word of English
