Esmari and Cilliers

Cape Town City Bowl

Wow, these two! When we first met for coffee to chat about their wedding, the connection between them buzzed across the table and their enthusiasm for life, for photos, for each other is paramount! We clicked instantly and immediately got excited about planning their engagement shoot and wedding photos! Esmari, an engineer, and Cilliers, a teacher and also a budding photographer, have many years behind them and CilliersĀ hadn’t quite fooled Esmari when he planned a “shoot” in harsh midday light in the Franschhoek mountains close to where they live… (the shoot was actually a proposal!) These two opted for the backdrop of the Cape Town citybowl for their engagement photos, in stark contrast to their winter wedding which will be held at a gorgeous venue nestled in the hillside of the Franschhoek mountains. They met me with warm smiles and excited anticipation and we had so much fun together hopping from spot to spot and delighting inĀ the photogenic nooks and crannies that this fabulous city has to offer. This couple is so naturally comfortable together and the spark and happiness between them was such a joy for me to photograph. We finished off at the Sunstar – an installation constructed on Signal Hill by Chris Swift… a symbol of unity, peace and a reflection upon the past, present and great hopes for the future in terms of our environment, community and sustainability… An apt symbol to serve as a reminder for these lovebirds as they move on to their next chapter as a married couple.
