Love in the Theatre – Martha + Sbu's engagement shoot

When Martha and Sbu’s eyes met across a crowded nightclub their souls must have recognised something in each other that was more than just smoldering good looks. That fateful night marked the beginning of a love  that has lasted despite long distances. A love that is rooted in a  deep connection, a love that is going to be rooted in a marriage.

Martha and Sbu are both in medicine and they both work in hospitals. Martha is a pharmacist  in Canada while Sbu is a Doctor in Durban.

It seemed obvious to me that their engagement shoot had to be done in a hospital.

Thanks to both of you for trusting my vision!
