Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
Khadijah and DJ
At the start of year we reflected on our goals, and this year we both felt we wanted to do be part of more intimate elopements or small weddings that mirror who we are and what we stand for as photographers. And we got to start our year off with just that, an intimate breathtaking elopement on the side of one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the world, Table Mountain. Honestly we can say we that feel like the luckiest wedding photographers!
The afternoon started with Khadijah and DJ getting ready in the beautiful 12 Apostles Hotel, just little down the road from Camps Bay. We watched as they each opened each others hand written letters, taking in each word that the other had thoughtfully written the day before.
We joined DJ up on a little hill overlooking the silent Atlantic Ocean as he waited for his bride to arrive. As she stepped out from under the trees there wasn't a dry eye in site, and we watched in awe (almost forgetting to document the moment) as these two locked eyes. It's something we find ourselves saying often, but we really feel so incredibly humbled and blessed that we get to be apart of such special moments in people's lives.
As we explored the little cove nearby, we learnt that part of the reason that DJ and Khadijah had chosen us was thanks to DJ’s mom (a wedding photographer herself) who loved our work and saw the creativity and quality of each image. This is such a compliment coming from one creative to another. Thank you!
We loved the chance to explore the beaches and mountainsides around Camps Bay, making some awesome images with this amazing couple.
Thanks for trusting us to document your elopement so far away from home. It's couples like yourselves who continue to fuel our passion and love for what we do!
We hope all your friends and family back home loved your photographs as much as we do!
