    Daniel and Gennae|Wedding

    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. I photographed Daniel and his family before the ceremony started. They had a sweet small ceremony held outside under a white stretch tent. The ceremony was very romantic and very personal as the minister was a close friend. This wedding was one big reunion and party. Take a look at some of my favourites from the day. xxxLaikin Photographed for Jessica E’silva

    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…

    Edith Silo Hotel

    Edith contacted me in her last week touring South Africa. She wanted to capture herself enjoying a little bit of Cape Town to remember her trip in photographs and not just by memory. She’d been all over South Africa and wanted to end it off on a fun note by renting a sports car that they rented from wiggle car hire. Her Friend Justin joined the session and the three of us walked around capturing memories they’ll now remember forever. xxxLaikin
