Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Kaapschehoop

Kaapschehoop is a picturesque ex-mining village in the Mpumalanga low veld. We were last here nine years ago for a friend’s wedding – before being involved in wedding work was even a glimmer of an idea. We remember this place fondly as an arty little village full of wild horses, ducks, chickens and magical mist. When we found ourselves with a morning to spare before our flight out of Nelspruit after a wedding, we jumped at the chance to go back to this gem. Exploring this beautiful little town was the perfect end to a crazy double wedding weekend for us. With blue skys and dramatic clouds for days, I really hope we get a chance to shoot a wedding here one day! (just putting it out to the universe…)

Andy is hands down my favourite subject to photograph, so apologies in advance for all the pics of my amazing and dorky person.

  • Dream destination wedding on the island of Rhodes in Greece
  • Kaylee and Scott, getting married on the best day of the year to get married 🔥
  • 7 years of saying yes to adventure together. Marrying you was hands down the best thing I’ve ever done, and somehow each year it just gets better and better. Having that person in your corner to fight every battle you face, and celebrate every joy with you just makes this whole life thing so much more incredible! Love you monkey, thanks for being my human! Every year you grow into a more awesome human I just love being around, and still get giddy thinking is mine ☺️
  • Hair wizardry by the amazing Laura @nixonmakeup (one of our all time faves), making Jenna’s curls just perfect - Sex in the City Sarah Jessica Parker eat your heart out...
  • What an honour to witness so much beautiful love.
  • When the mother of all rain storms hit mid reception, everyone retreated into the Prynnsberg manor house and continued the party - soaked through, but happy as all hell! The vibe at Jenna and Jeff’s wedding was amazing! Cannot wait to blog this gem soon!
  • Truth moment right here: the more I fall in love with “real” moment shots and share them on here like my heart tells me to, the lower my engagement. So what do I do? Keep posting the real and authentic, hoping it reaches people who appreciate it? Or focus only on the IG “hero” shots that guarantee the double tap so I can feel popular? It’s quite amazing to see how platforms like IG have shaped in some ways how we as humans interact with things - favoring the polished and curated over the real. Authentic is such a buzzword for wedding photographers at the moment - but a lot of what I’m shown is not that... who are some of your favorite photographers of the authentic? Three of our faves are always @wearetheparsons ,  @kikitography and @the_woods_photography for keeping that shit real 🙌🏽
  • Can’t believe it’s been two years since we shared Paros with these two beautiful souls! What makes this memory even sweeter, is they have grown to become good friends of ours 💜
  • Dreaming of gorgeous sun drenched days as we head off for 3 days of Download music festival in the pouring rain. Hope we don’t Drownload...
  • To keep the IG monster and it’s algorithm happy, have this pretty pic of Kate and Brett.
  • You know, just a casual stroll in a horse manure-filled field with your favorite people.... oooooh did I just make a metaphor for life?!
  • 14 mother flippin’ years! Still the best question I’ve ever asked was asking this boy out - and still greatful he was too polite to turn me down ☺️

  • This weekend exceeded all expectations! 🙌 Sooo many good bands, the friendliest people, and delicious veggie food. The mud and rain even made it a proper English festival experience 🌧 This was our first @downloadfest and we WILL be back! Thank you @the_szerd for enjoying the same noisy music as me and always being my band buddy 😘
  • This summer in Europe has been epic for bands so far! Another one from our “must-see” band list. Alice in Chains 🔥 Definite highlights were this song, Them Bones, and Nutshell, which Jerry Cantrell dedicated to Layne Stayley. Totes emosch 😥 @aliceinchains
  • I played bass for a long time and this man was my bass crush 😍 #justinchancellor was worth every second of the 20 year wait to watch this man play 🙌 ... and I got his plectrum ! That’s getting framed.
  • Tool 🙌 I waited 20 years to see this band and it finally happened last night in Berlin, of all places. They were a massive influence on my own band and were actually one of the reasons @the_szerd and I started dating over 15 years ago. I even played in a Tool tribute band back in the day. Excellent times!
  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
