This styled shoot has been brewing in my head for quite a few years now and I finally decided to take action and pull in a few top local creatives to make it happen. What a journey it was! Chanel from Covet Projects and I plotted and planned for what seemed like weeks. Yet all the planning in the world could not prevent the unscheduled rain that arrived, so this shoot is aptly named ‘Rain Forest’.
Our beautiful model Tazmin was fearless and we photographed right through the storm. She wore beautiful dresses made by the incredibly talented Kelly Esterhuyse (Elle New Talent Winner 2011) and the amazing hair and make-up artist Marike de Groot assisted us with a look that was diverse enough to change on location. Tazmin’s make-up was perfect right to the end of the shoot, even through the rain, which is a testament to Marike’s superpowers! Our cake was a decadent monument that lucky withstood the effects of gravity… a huge thanks to The Friendly Stranger for making us such a rad and unique cake!
Thanks so much to everyone who was involved – it was a truly amazing journey and we hope that this shoot provides tons of inspiration to the many brave brides out there :)
