Happy Thursday everyone. As we reach the latter end of the week, the weekend is...
I don’t often post engagement or couple shoots on the blog, but when I was sent his beautiful shoot by DNA Photographers all the way from South Africa I couldn’t say no! Why? well it’s the gorgeous use of light, something we don’t often see in this country due to the rubbish weather (apart from this week of course) When a shoot comes in and the sunlight plays such a big part in making the photos this awesome then they need to be blogged!
The couple are Kate & Chris who’s engagement shoot took place on 26th February at train station Observatory, Cape Town, South Africa. They describe their shoot as ‘The shoot started at our house over a cup of coffee, then we walked through Observatory with our dogs Winston and Mable and took a few shots with Chris’ oldtimer Rambler.
How they met
Chris and I met 4 years go in a bowling club. I couldn’t believe that he liked me-he was sexy and cool and played in a band. We immediately fell for each other and moved in together after just 3 months and have been together ever since (but I wouldn’t recommend moving in that soon-its hard work!) So when we decided to get married it felt like it was always meant to be.
He proposed on a beach in our favorite fishing village called Arniston on Guy Fawkes.
