Cape Town Couple Shoot | Dirk + Heather | Hawksmoor House

Let me introduce you to my friend. Her name is Heather. I met her at my very first photographer “networking” event a few months after moving to Cape Town. From the moment we said hello, we just clicked and she has been one of my best friends ever since. She’s there when I need advice, need to vent or just need a good cuppa white hot chocolate.

To sum her up in one word I would go for fierce! One of my fondest memories of our adventures together has to be chasing down a gumtree camera thief in a dodgy area somewhere in Pinelands. That was the day I learnt that this girl has no scared bone in her body.

When she asked me to do a trash the dress shoot for her and her husband Dirk, I felt so honoured (and slightly nervous).

We talked about her ideas and the possibility of doing the shoot at Hawksmoor House. If you don’t know by now. This is possibly my most favourite venue that I have worked at. Ever.

With all the possibilities they offer and their incredibly friendly and accommodating staff, we pranced around taking photos like we owned the place!

Hehe.. it was so much fun.

Thank you Hawksmoor House and thank you Heather & Dirk for trusting me with this special shoot!

I hope you guys enjoy  xx
