When Amy and Kyle got engaged, we were all so thrilled but not surprised at all.  They have been dating since they were 14.  Yup that’s right.  Amy and Kyle are very good friends of mine - our friendship circles have been tightly linked since early high school.  Amy is an occupational therapist at Livingston and Kyle a teacher at Marist Brothers – don’t they already sound dreamy? Both come from exceptionally loving and supportive families resulting in two very down to earth magical people.  

A few drinks into their engagement party, Amy said “oh ya, Dez – we were wondering if you would be our photographer?” of course I said “Hell ya!!”  And that’s how casually they took the whole affair.  We had to bribe Kyle into having photos taken while he was getting ready by allowing him his own ‘shot’.  Check out the gangster AWEH photo below – that’s all Kyle!

This wedding was not a job at all – it was a celebration of wonderful people. It sounds like a cliché, but I felt incredibly honoured to be up there photographing for them and witnessing this magic at such close proximity.

Amy&Kyle – Congratulations!

Blogging advice always says to stick to around 20 photos. Bwa ha ha – not gonna happen. I just can’t. I even got my boyfriend to help me cull.  I don’t think anyone could get bored of these two though – they’re incredibly beautiful little people. 

So, enjoy……

In the mean time..... My 2nd shooter for this wedding Xavier, was creating this magic with the ever so sexy Kyle
The service was at the Maris Stella school chapel.  It is a breath taking setting for a wedding - but only open to old girls (who are practicing Catholics.) Therefor quite exclusive.  If you fit the criteria, I suggest that you seriously consider a wedding here. Magical!
And now.....onto the reception at the Durban Country Club
