Lyn and Thys at Bergventure and Wits End

4Couple-4

Lyn and Thys live in a place many people dream of going on holiday to.  When Lyn first contacted me about us shooting their wedding in the foothills on Monks Cowl we jumped at the chance as we simply adore the Drakensberg! When we arrived at Bergventure we were absolutely speechless to see the place they call home! They got married in their “backyard” and I must admit, it is…Read more

Adventures in Peru – Cusco and back to Santa Cruz

Cusco-3

Cusco was our last stop in Peru and we left it til last so that we would be there over Christmas, which we had heard is phenomenal. We arrived in Cusco late on Christmas Eve straight from Macchu Picchu and got into town as soon as we could. Quite uncharacteristically, we left our cameras in our room. We thought (for once) it may be nice to just experience events without…Read more

Jenine and Graham at Talloula

Jenine and Graham got married at the lovely Talloula which it turns out is right around the corner from our house! It was awesome shooting a wedding where we drove literally three minutes to the venue! The weather was playing it a bit crazy changing from moody and super overcast to bright sun in the matter of seconds! Jenine and Graham’s decor was super fun and creative and we loved…Read more

Rebecca and Guy at Gowrie Farm

Rebecca and Guy got married on the farm that Rebecca grew up on in the Midlands. Their ceremony was at Michaelhouse, where Guy went to school and their reception was set up in her parent’s beautiful garden. Every part of their wedding was personal and elegantly put together.

Adventures in Peru – Macchu Picchu

MacchuPicchu-118

When we first decided  South America was our next destination, the first thing we decided we had to do was visit Macchu Picchu. The rest of the trip we constructed around it.We wanted to experience as many diverse things as possible and as we wouldnt have time to do the full 5 day Inca trail, we decided to do the abridged version which is 2 days and follows the last…Read more

Adventures in Peru – The Sacred Valley

Ollantaytambo-49

The Sacred Valley was our first port of call in Peru. From the research we did it seems many people fly through the Sacred Valley on their way to Macchu Picchu. We decided to base ourselves in the Incan town of Ollantaytambo and used it as our base to explore the Sacred Valley. The Sacred Valley was not only exquisitely beautiful with the bulging Urubamba river flowing through the green…Read more

Bolivia to Peru

Puno-SacredValley-18

After de-stressing in La Paz for a couple of days we decided to cross over to Peru via Puno. We decided not to go to Copacabana which had originally been on our itinerary as from what we heard it was super touristy whereas Puno was less so. From all our reading Puno got terrible reviews, but to be honest, we thought the little town was pretty awesome! Getting to Peru…Read more

Mariane and Jono at the Hatchery

Couple-26

Mariane and Jono’s wedding was our first of 2014 and we felt so blessed to start our year with such an amazing wedding. When Mariane first messaged me I knew their wedding was going to be special. In Mariane’s words: “I’m french, met with husband to be while visiting St Lucia, never left this little town since, so this wedding is the perfect occasion to have all our friends and…Read more

Adventures in Bolivia – La Paz

LaPaz-63

La Paz was meant to be just a stopover on our way up to Peru, but after our traumatic flight experience we decided to stay there a couple days. We are so glad we did as La Paz turned out to be a very cool and quirky city! La Paz is in a giant crater and as the city has grown, it has grown up the sides of the crater…Read more
