Caitlyn & I met when we studied together at university - I remember her always standing out for her bubbly personality and gracefulness :) Caits & Charlie crossed paths in 2008 and have been inseparable ever since. I can say, with complete honesty that after spending 2 hours with these two lovely people, I have seldom seen a better 'fit' :) Charlie dotes on her - is sweet and teasing, rather a lot naughty but also incredibly tender. And Caits in return appears to just melt into his arms - literally and figuratively. You can tell when people have a complete, unwavering trust in one another and it is a beauty and privilege to witness :)
We spent a beautiful winter afternoon wandering around UCT and then Bakhoven beach, and as you'll see there were many many giggles ;) Oh and kisses, lots of those too :)
Caits & Charlie, thank you SO much for the honor of choosing me to photograph your love - cannot wait for your wedding in September :) xx
The light at UCT is gorgeous - as is the architecture and these two :)
Thanks for being a rockstar Charlie and doing the crazy-girl-invented poses ;)
I can't even explain the smile I had on my face whilst editing these - I'm sure you understand why :) :) :)
Scrabble plays a very special part in Caits & Charlie's lives - they are both avid players and take a small travel set with them wherever they go. Charlie, being the mastermind that he is, proposed to Caits by writing the Big Question on a Scrabble board whilst they were holiday-ing in Zanzibar :) Serious points right?! And an awesome excuse to use scrabble as part of their shoot :)
Spot the subtle photo bomber in the back ;)
UCT has the most beautiful ivy out this time of year :)
They were awesomely up for anything - even doing a wild jump off a windowsill! 10/10 for execution guys!
Charlie's dad's Jag :)
Heehee, there's a funny story to go with this shot but is PG so will leave it untold ;)
Taken by my hubby :)
Adore the colors and love here :)
I think it is such a beautiful thing to share your life with your best friend, who also happens to make you laugh your butt off all the time :)
We then headed off to the beach where we were blessed with the most beautiful evening light
It's those quiet moments....
The most beautiful sun flare :)
Because all boys love the hands on the bum shot, honestly though it is a good excuse ;)
Beautiful CT :)
The water was a smidge cold ;)
Beautiful beautiful Caits :)
Such a stunner of a couple!
You can just see Charlie said something naughty here ;)
Love love love the feeling in these :)
And this one :)
A bit of a hike to land these!
Ended off with a few flash shots to showcase the beautiful mountains :)
Gorgeous Caits & handsome Charlie :)
