I loved meeting Yolandi & Chris for their pre-wedding photo shoot in Durban. I need to tell you a little about how this couple met – I love their story.

Picture the scene – a little shop in Europe. Both Yolandi and Chris are in the shop. Yolandi is in an isle with all the chocolates. Yolandi was browsing through the chocolates minding her own businesses, when Chris notices her from across the shop. Chris approaches Yolandi – he says it was love at first sight. Yolandi says it was the chocolates (LOL). These two are hopelessly in love.
We started the shoot at Paradise Valley Nature Reserve near Pinetown. It was my first time shooting at the reserve and to be honest I am looking forward to returning soon. The waterfall is stunning. This is the second Nature Reserve I have been to in Durban, the other being Stainbank Nature Reserve a few weeks ago.

Yolandi and Chris were such naturals in front of the camera.

We then left the nature and went to the beach. Yolandi has this cool umbrella which worked really well in the photos. It was very overcast and with the outfits they had on, adding some light some light would enhance the look and feel of the photos.

After the amazing photos above I said to Yolandi and Chris – it is almost dark. Have a quick romatic walk on the beach. So the two walked off and on their way back decided that it was time to get a little wet.

Thank you Yolandi and Chris for allowing me to create memories for you. Can’t wait for your wedding later this year.
