I’m not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you, I need a cup of coffee and at least an hour alone after waking up before I become even remotely approachable. But sometimes it pays to get up that little bit earlier to do something special. I met these two lovebirds at Muizenberg on one such morning to do their engagement shoot. Melisna works for Emirates, so she flies all over the world, and doesn’t usually spend too much time in one place, so it was the only time we could do it. Let me just say – there is something really magical about Muizenberg beach at sunrise. If you haven’t been done it, do yourself a favour – wake up early one morning, pack a flask of coffee and just go and sit on the beach. I promise it makes everything better.
I can honestly say this was my favourite shoot to date – I was so tempted to post all the pics, they were all that beautiful. Adriaan and Melisna, thank you guys for getting me out of bed so early. It was the most perfect morning, and it’s not often that I come across people who are so easy to shoot. I think it’s because you are so in love, and it really shows. I hope to meet with you again sometime in the future. I just need to put it out there that I would LOVE to shoot your wedding, so please get married in CT :) Although, I would have no issue with flying out to Dubai either ;)
