“The V&A Waterfront is a great location for any photographer and everyone loves being around boats and a harbour filled with pretty yachts,” said talented photographer Dehan Engelbrecht.

When he and Lisa, a well-known make-up artist, chatted about her engagement session, they decided on a wardrobe of simple colours that would work well in the visually busy location they chose. Take note because that’s a great ‘what-to-wear’ tip for anyone planning a couple shoot! Enjoy this darling engagement shoot inspiration.  READ MORE

Jessica and Francois celebrated their marriage with gorgeous destination vintage-style beach wedding in Mauritius (which you can see here). When they woke up in paradise, the day after their wedding, there was no need to run off for honeymoon – they were already there!
