Perfect wedding beach photo shoot at De Hoop Nature reserve

April 20, 2017

 My story about the perfect wedding photo shoot at a lovely beach.


Melville and Carmen was getting married the Saturday afternoon at De hoop Nature Reserve and I learned that one of their wishes was to have a photo session at the beach. Due to time constraints and other factors, the beach shoot was not viable on the Saturday.


I approached Melville the week before the wedding and made a crazy proposal. "What if you and Carmen get dressed in your wedding attire, meet me at reception at 06H30 the Sunday morning after the wedding and let me take some pictures at the beach. The tide will be low and sunrise at 06H00, the perfect beach setting, all the elements in our favor to get stunning pictures" Melville agreed without hesitation.


The pictures speaks for it self. The light was perfect, the couple was relaxed, the wedding jitters are history, no waiting guests at reception and we had the beach to ourselves.
