I met the lovely Angela and very dashing Tys at the Oakfield Farm Expo last year and was very excited when Angela contacted me and asked me to be their wedding photographer in August this year. As Tys works in Iraq, and they live 3 months apart at a time, we organised their engagement shoot for March while Tys was here for Easter. We chose the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens for the shoot as it is beautiful and fitted with everything they wanted. Timing was really good as Monique (Make-up by Monique) did Angela's make-up trial the morning of the shoot.
Now their story is special, and you can see it the minute you spend time with them, so I asked Angela to share their story:
To Angela and Tys, its amazing working with you and to see such love between two people. I am really priviledged to be your photographer on your Wedding Day! I wish you loads of love and happiness! May your love continue to grow!
I love travelling, the best part is sharing the experience with the people I love! The single best trip I had was with my wonderful boyfriend which was to Italy, however I have travelled quite a bit with former colleagues. The latest trip was to the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain.
We travelled to Barcelona in February this year, leaving South Africa's warm and sunny climate and arriving in the coldest period in Europe for the last 50 years! Talk about a bit of a shock to our system! It was worth it though, Barcelona is a vibrant and energetic city, and everywhere you look you see Gaudi's influence. I can see why this city is an inspiration to many artists including Picasso.
Walking down Las Ramblas, you experience the vibes of Barcelona, with loads of little restaurants all serving Paella and the best Sangria you will ever have! Although I only got to sightsee for 3 days, I have loads of photos and looking at them brings back the smells and vibes of this amazing city. I am sharing a few of my favourite scenes with you below. Hope you enjoy and perhaps put Barcelona on your "must see" list!
Quirky and often described as rather eccentric, I am a lover of all things beautiful. Capturing special moments and making my clients look and feel beautiful is what makes me happy!
