Sizwe and Sumaya – Kirstenbosch Gardens

This wedding blew our minds on so many levels.

Firstly, Sizwe approached us 1 week before the time to ask us to do their images.  In my first meeting with him, I acted calmly when he told me this but later that evening I had a slight heart attack 🙂  We normally meet with the couple way in advance but I was certainly up for the challenge, my friend.

Secondly, Sizwe comes from a culturally mixed background and his bride is Muslim!  It was simply amazing to see how all the cultures came together.  I must admit that we were a bit apprehensive to shoot in the mosque as we had no clue what the protocol was.  When we got there though, the Imam and other leaders put us at ease and assured us that it would be very relaxed and we had carte blanche.

At this point I haven’t met or seen Sumaya yet and when she entered I realised why Sizwe’s heart could skip a beat at the mention of her name.  She looked absolutely beautiful!

The couple met on UCT and were both in the running for SRC president.  I guess it was a case of rivalry turning into blissful romance.

This is certainly a wedding that we would remember for a while.

Second shooter: Marguerite du PLooy

    Wow. Beautiful Eugene. I love all of them. You truly have an eye for capturing beauty. They look so young but I pray God’s richest blessing over them. Besides the fact that you are indeed genius I think they all want you to shoot their weddings knowing that you will keep them in your prayers and not just your camera or negatives or harddrive. It is very important having the right people sharing your day. I have to show my hubby this. He is having his first shoot at the end of this month. And besides I always show him your gems.
