Tim Burton Inspired Engagement Shoot

Afternoon, lovelies! Time for a couple shoot, and this one is from Cape Town photographer Katherine Newman, who has just moved back to SA from London (sometimes I wonder if anyone’s left here!). Bride and groom-to-be, Cherise and Nick, have such a fun, funky style and the setting (a nature reserve in Swellendam that unfortunately had recently experienced fire damage) brings to mind the magical landscape of a Tim Burton film. It really shows off the couple’s style and personalities – and as we all know, that’s the very best kind of e-shoot!Read More

Movie-themed Engagement Shoots

Now I admit, I wasn’t an immediate convert to this particular trend. I’m a big fan of engagement shoots, but my favourite are those that show off a couple’s personalities, what they like to do together, etc. But there’s something kinda fun and silly and romantic about recreating the style and mood of a favourite film – and when else will you get the chance to do it? Ultimately, what won me over was the images I’ve seen coming out of these shoots – thanks to some amazing photographers, they are nothing short of spectacular. So grab your popcorn and check out my favourites.
