This is a lovely photo of Melissa & Ger who got married in the stunning Tulbagh in the Cape Town Winelands, this is a wonderful moment captured with such an amazing and beautiful back drop.

I really like the natural, intimate, sweet pose the couple are in. I also liked the natural light coming in from the ornate windows at the Mayfair Library. Overall, I think it’s a really warm observational shot of a couple very much in love.

My clients Fuu & Luke are into ninja’s, Japanese culture, games and pretty much anything that’s uber cool. The groom informed me that he would be presenting his ushers with Samurai swords so the first thing that sprang from my twisted mind was ‘BATTLE SCENE’. As the wedding was to be held on the Devon cost there was a slim chance that we would be treated to a cool sunset.

I arrived in Devon the day before to reconnoiter possible locations for my battle scene. The weather was terrible, but after trudging up many hills and getting some evil looks from sheep I found a remote location overlooking the sea. My idea was to have the bride and groom attacked from each side by their sword wielding ushers as the sun set behind them.

Much to my surprise everything worked exactly as I had envisaged. However I didn’t want to just stop at a great photo, I wanted to take the photo into the realm of fantasy.
I decided to turn the photo into a 70’s style martial arts movie poster. I had no idea how my clients would feel about this, but I’m happy to say they loved it.
