Featured, Styled Shoots

Hochzeitsguide E- Magazine Feature : Wolkenlichter Über Kapstadt

It is with great excitement that I discovered my image made the cover of one of my favourite online publications, Hochzeitsguide. I regularly find inspirations from their features and follow the work of some of my photographic idols on their blog. The Shoot that received a 5 page spread in the e-magazine was a creative collaboration with my friend and colleague Angelique Smith; with us both contributing to the images featured in the magazine.

The concept behind the shoot was centered around Ethereal Nymphs calling for their loves out at sea. I was inspired by the beautiful hair accessories of The Schönmich 2016 Catalogue to create a soft, windswept ambiance. The feminine and exquisitely detailed gowns of the Anna Georgina Collection was perfect to create that ethereally romantic bridal style. Marnel Toerien’ artistry with a soft, glowing bridal make up added to the ethereal beauty look book created. Her use of a soft messy braid & loose curls was ideal for these windswept Bohemian hairstyles.Beach-WeddingInspiration-Schonmich-STPhotography-0022 HochzeitsguideFeature-StyledShoot-Schonmich-Beach-005Beach-WeddingInspiration-Schonmich-STPhotography-0036 HochzeitsguideFeature-StyledShoot-Schonmich-Beach-006

A rustic cascading bridal bouquet, solely made from greenery was chosen to add to the bohemian ambience. Paradiso Flowers created a wonderful mix of textures and shapes with the “foraged” styled bouquet.

Soft & detailed flower appliques bodices with satin or tulle skirts and intricate underskirts of glittering lace and blush. These are the signature features of the Anna Georgina 2016 Collection. A unique modern take on the bohemian look by this renowned bridal collection was essential to the look book for this dreamy and feminine bridal style.

On rounded rocks as high as a man, the waves came roaring in. A spray cloud rose each time of crash and drifted in the wind “ – William J. Orr

Handwritten Water Coloured Stationary design by Susan Brand  added the nostalgia of a time gone by when lovers still declared their love with hand written notes and beautiful calligraphy.
