Makiti – Cindy + Daniel

I think this has been the wettest summer we’ve had in years, last night was no exception to the weeks of rain. Huge torrents of water hammering against the large glass doors, a power failure that sent us to bed super early resulting in V and I waking up before the cats for the first time in history. They looked confused – especially the mad fluffy one. Revenge for all those times they woke us up is indeed sweet.

Cindy and Daniel’s wedding day was no exception, the rain did come down, the rain did not stop. They were complete rockstars though, completely unphased by the rain, very much in love, surrounded by their friends, just natural, happy, relaxed. I confess I did shoot a couple of images in the rain, we had an umbrella, the big black camera is weatherproof and I wanted to get some of that backlit drama that comes with rain.

It was too much rain for a full shoot though, the light just wasn’t right and I wanted them to have some spectacular sunset veld images, so we scheduled a portrait session for the day after they came back from honeymoon. Killer bee skies and an amazing sunset right on cue. Nice.

Dress: Patricia Nascimento.
Make-up: The incomparable Cathy Heaton

Just wanted to add for those that are worried about rain on their wedding day that we always have a plan, and in a worst case scenario we will organize and schedule a day after shoot for your portrait session at your venue.
