Kiki and Pieter | A love story

You know all that cheesy stuff that photographers write about couples that they photograph, where they say how the love just shines from the couple etc etc? Well these two are deserving of that description, and more. The love between them was palpable, and I barely told them what to do or where to look...they just naturally fell into these happy embraces - a love like this is easy to capture. Thank you Kiki and Pieter for letting me spend the morning with you. 

Coffee and Love | The perfect sunday morning

Audrey contacted me a while back now to ask me to take her engagement pictures. They were looking for natural, honest, fun engagement pictures, to use on their wedding website, and to show all of their friends and family back in Windhoek, in Namibia (where the wedding will take place this summer) what their life here in KL is like. I suggested we meet in one of their favourite coffee shops, and then take a walk back to the apartment, and capture them just doing their normal sunday morning thing...and that's exactly what we did...

The family session that turned into an engagement session....

Mel arranged this family session with me a few weeks ago. I'd met Mel and Archie (their one year old) before, but never Kurt, and so when he phoned me the afternoon before the shoot was planned I was a bit confused....when he explained why he was phoning though, I quickly became super excited....and then had to keep my mouth shut for 24 hours until the shoot. The next morning the sun rose and the light was beautiful. BEAUTIFUL I tell you. Mel and I were excitedly swapping messages about how perfect it was...but little did she know how exciting it was about to become.

We took a few family shots...and then whilst stood in front of the iconic Petronas Towers, with little Archie watching on, Kurt went down on one knee and the romantic in me nearly died, because it was Just. Too. Gorgeous. I won't be sharing any of the actual proposal pictures here, because they're something personal to Kurt and Mel, but you can probably tell when it can see a little bit of Mel's reaction afterwards, and you can definitely see the smiles that do not leave their faces from that moment on...and as for that ring...that's hard to miss! 

Congratulations guys; it was an honour to be there, and I hope I've done the moment justice...

Light filled, natural couple portraits in KLCC Park

Ana-Maria and Joe are one of those couples that you want to be jealous of, but really can't help liking. A lot. They are stylish, successful, creative, fun, and holy wow are they good you can see below. I got to spend the morning with them in KLCC park before they head off to pastures new, having spent nearly two years living just around the corner from this park.

Hopefully we created some beautiful memories to take on with them to wherever in the world they end up. Safe travels guys!
