GILBERT & EMEN / Creating Originality

At first glance, a casual observer could be forgiven for believing Gilbert and Emen were a solemn couple befitting the typical image of their chosen profession as lawyers. To those who delve further into the people behind the law degree, Gilbert and Emen couldn’t be further from the stereotype.

Gilbert loves the outdoors. He’s into scuba diving, basketball and photography. During our shoot in the studio, Gilbert and Emen came fully prepared with lots of props to make a typical studio shoot more interesting. We also shot some portraits on a yacht where, again, Gilbert and Emen eschewed the more traditional poses for the original.

Emen is quite the artist herself and for the afternoon, we booked a session of artjamming. Armed with unlimited paints and several blank canvases, Gilbert and Emen went to town with their creativity- having a blast and producing some fantastic paintings for posterity.

EVA & THOMAS / Romance In The Ring

We’ve had the pleasure of knowing Eva for a little while now and every time we see Eva, the first thing that strikes you is that she’s always so well put together. She’s tough, astute, elegant and beautiful; it’s easy to believe that this blushing bride holds high standards for herself and those around her.

A love for Thai kickboxing brought Thomas and Eva together. They met at the local centre and it only seemed appropriate to shoot a set of pre-wedding portraits in the place that started it all. Thomas was unwell during our shoot and was fairly quiet, but he definitely perked up when we arrived at the boxing centre – it was obvious that the sport and the centre were important to both Thomas and Eva.

Aside from kickboxing – and of course, Thomas – Eva’s other great love is shoes. As in many, many shoes. We’ve had couples who bring things to the shoot that illustrate their hobbies and interests. When we arrived to shoot at Eva’s house, she made a great suggestion of including as many pairs of high-heeled shoes as possible – creating a rather unique twist on the traditional pre-wedding portrait.

We also took advantage of their swimming pool to take a few photos; even though Eva was a little embarrassed, we caught the light at sunset and created some fantastic portraits of which we think Eva and Thomas should be proud.
