Today we are featuring this gorgeous e-shoot by Simoné Venter Photography. The lovebirds, Maxine and Awie had their beautiful engagement shoot with a colourful “woodlands” look and feel. Have a look!
The Theme | What was the look and feel of the shoot?
I wanted a ‘woodlands’ feel, because I did a couple of levitation shots. Maxine wore a Silver Swallow dress, so I thought the trees would be the best backdrop. Also it was late in the afternoon and I had the sun coming through the trees. I wanted the shoot to be playful and natural. The talented Ashleigh from The Love Knot made the flower crown, and Elizabeth Steenkamp was my stylist for the shoot. .
The Couple | Tell us a bit about your couple?
I was the photographer for Awie’s sister’s wedding in the beginning of 2017. They referred them to me. They are both engineers, and Awie is currently working overseas. They were SUPER comfortable with each other. And in front of the camera. It was just so easy to photographer them. We had a lot, A LOT of fun!!!
The Trends | What’s hot at the moment?
Styled shoots are huge right now. Vendors and Photographers are coming together to create beautiful, elegant shoots. Also Creative Wedding Photography/Contemporary Wedding Photography is growing in our country. My personal favourite. Photographers are thinking out of the box, and giving their clients more artsy photos. The Wedding Industry is booming!
Simply You | One last word?
My shoots and weddings are simplistic. I like to tell stories with my photos. I love to photograph real and raw emotions.
