Kiesha and Marco are a very cute couple that I met while in East London for an engagement session. They warned me about 3 times that they were very awkward in front of the camera...but that was utter NONSENSE!!! They were such fun and absolutely perfect in front of the camera.
Yup - they are both called Claire...and they both enjoy horses!
I shot a wedding in St Francis Bay this past weekend, and decided to spend the remainder of the week with my sister in East London. I was so glad that I agreed to be up at the crack of dawn to catch this sunrise for a shoot with the Claires...what a breath taking way to start a day. Although we were only 10 minutes from East London - it felt like I was out in the middle of the African bush. (sound track to The Lion King plays in the background!) :)
My time spent in East London with my sister Gaelyn and my soon to be Brother-in-law and step-neice-in-law :) was magical. Although the visit was short, it was so so special to me and I was thrilled to squeeze in a family shoot. Chris grabbed the camera toward the end and snapped a few of Gaelyn and I together, which I am so grateful for. Thanx Bro.
A few words from Gaelyn: "When my fiance and I got engaged in December, his 6 year old daughter was thrilled, but her first question about her new Step Mom was whether I had a poison apple or not! I wish I could have captured the look of relief on her face when she realised that her fathers new "Beyonce" (not fiance) was poison apple free."
