    Ben & Alinda|Proposal& engagement shoot

    Ben contacted me via email as he was planning a trip to SA with his Girlfriend. Little did she know he was actually planning the most beautiful sunset proposal on Signal Hill.

I had scouted the location, earlier the week and sent all previews, even sent him a map where he should stand, for us to meet up exactly at the spot and time.

    I’ve known Vanessa since high school, and Wade actually. I’ve been friends with Vanessa since boarding school and Wade was, a friend of a friend and attended school the same year as one of my brothers.

It was very cozy and we all were just chilling, me…

    Paul & Melissa Wedding|Camps Bay

    Paul and Melissa were married at the stunning 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa, the wedding took place outside overlooking the ocean. Paul got dressed at his parent’s place which was filled with so many fun moments before we all headed off to the venue. The day started off really sunny and closed up quite a bit. It was like a blanket hiding the sky and mountains. Which I think looked amazing with the white and sheer theme of their decor. It all matched up so well. I had loads of time to photographed the guests while we awaited the bride of the moment. Melissa was a breathtaking bride, i loved…

    The wedding of Daniel and Gennae was held as a beautiful hidden location Chelaya Country Lodge. The venue was secluded and had many pretty small areas at the venue.

    Robbie and Yolandi

    I photographed this wedding in Paarl and.a gorgeous intimate outdoor wedding venue called Picardie Guest Farm. I photographed Robbie and his man of honor and we just had a great time capturing there friendship. He was absolutely blown away by the sight of his bride down the aisle. You could see how utterly improve these two were. They had a quick ceremony and so much time to mingle with guests. It.was a very laid back feel. I think they just wanted to spend all the.time with guests because most of them traveled from far. These are some of my favourites from the day. xxxLaikin Photographed for Jessica E’Silva xxxLaikin Photographed…
