Sergio & Claudia wedding @ The Vineyard Hotel

Sergio and Claudia’s wedding was held at The Vineyard Hotel and was coordinated by Johnny from the Aleit Group!

The setting and decor was perfect and the wedding was full of love and laughter! The photo where her father lifts her veil is one of my favorites!

The photo the guy doing a handstand and…well I am not going to try and explain…all I can say is that the DJ played a game that breaks the normal routine of catching the garter…this was more earning the garter!

The first picture is a dead give-away of this couples passion….she even had a Nike sweat band for a garter! I had an absolute blast shooting fun shots in the gym – click on post to see more!

My assistant for the wedding was Earl. He has a passion for photography and there is a bright future ahead of him. www.knish.co.za

South African girl in Cape Town

I did a fun engagement shoot with Mandy and Jose in Cape Town. It was a very windy day, yet we had so much fun! The couple was also kind enough to let the Glitterati crew film us during the shoot. They are doing a feature on me for one of their shows and wanted to get some action shots. The first photo was inspired by the famous photograph of Ruth Orkin: “American girl in Italy”:

I will remember this couple for the laughter and joy in their relationship. The last shots on the bridge was something I really wanted to do, even though it was extremely cold and windy in Cape Town and they didn’t have warm clothes with them, but Mandy and Jose didn’t even hesitate: they didn’t mind facing the freezing cold to satisfy my whims…thanks guys!

La Dolce Vita! The Italian Wedding…

La Dolce Vita…”the good life”…and what better way to celebrate the good life than doing this whole post in B&W! It’s Italy… it’s Art… it’s the way the wedding and the guests inspired me. So enjoy the photographs of the wedding of Debbie & Thomas I photographed in Italy! All the girls on one yacht and the guys on a few yachts meeting together at this hidden gem of a venue! What an experience! Its shoes off on the yachts and later at night someone took my shoes as it went missing…hehe…I did get it back the next day, but left the wedding in green crocs!

What made this wedding especially great for me was that I photographed this one with my brother Eric Uys! Growing up I followed in his footsteps in photography and decided to focus on weddings. He has photographed fashion for many magazines including the cover for One Small Seed and recently did the Fashion campaign for Errol Arendz. He photographed and designed Chris Chameleon’s CD albums Shine and 7de Hemel amongst many other accolades. Check out Eric’s post on this wedding on his weddingblog!
