I think it would be impossible to NOT have fun around Michaela and Mike! I have never been around a couple who laugh so much, who take in all that life has to offer and who don’t take things too seriously! Mike is a steadfast conveyor belt of witty quips and Michaela, even though often at the mercy of his jokes, has a constant stream of happy giggles to echo them. On their very first date, Michaela cooked dinner for the two of them – now that is one brave move! And it just proves the sassy, go-getter, adventurous type that she is! The bottle of wine they shared is the same one they drank for our shoot – this couple has so many sweet, heartfelt sentiments to them – we even shot on Valentine’s Day! Mike is just as brave with a constant smile and a naughty twinkle in his eye – beware the faint-hearted and the gullible! When the bachelor party takes place in VEGAS you know that there will be stories! And Mike has the best way with words to tell them as well as endless stories to tell… When I heard their schedule for their weekend in Cape Town, my ears were ringing with adrenaline at just the thought of cramming all that in – but true to their nature, they achieved it all – these two take life by the horns and breathe in every waking moment for taste, adventure, exploring, learning, laughing and most importantly, expressing their love in such a real, raw and honest way. It’s clear what a strong and supportive unit they are together and I’m so excited to shoot their wedding next month – without a doubt, it will be festive! This is a couple you could spend hours just chatting and getting to know, but I’ll leave these happy images here to let in just a glimpse of their happy life together.
