Yudi and Ellen were my first clients to book a Styled Couple Shoot with me. I was so excited! I got to work with the amazing Anneke Roux who was responsible for all the conceptualising and styling. Having this lady with me makes my job so much easier. I wish she could go along on every shoot I do!
Y + E came all the way from Indonesia with their family and spent some time in Johannesburg and the Kruger Park before coming down to Cape Town.
We traipsed all over Bo-Kaap and on the way to Signal Hill we were nearly blown into the Atlantic!
I’ve never walked around in such a crazy hurricane-like wind before! It sounded just as ominous as it felt.
But after we got some good photos of Table Mountain we headed to Camps Bay for the sunset.
We almost missed it and pulled off on the side of the road to catch some last rays and some colour in the sky. This shoot was definitely very energetic!
Afterwards, they spoiled us with some delicious sushi at Beluga (my first time there!). It was delicious and I enjoyed listening to Yudi about how he grew up all alone in America. This guy has so much courage and he is brainy too boot! He completed his masters in Architecture at the age of 21. Amazing hey?
They told me something funny at the end of the evening. They asked one of their friends from Johannesburg to phone me when they decided on booking me to see if I was ‘the real deal’ or perhaps a scam artist pretending to be a photographer. I had such a laugh, because I remember the phone call from the friendly guy and it’s probably the same thing I would do!
