Elmarie Vos has launched the beginning phase of her dream as a fashion designer, Ella V, her bridal boutique where she hires out bridal dresses and gowns and grooms attire. Since her shoot and the few sneak peaks we have been sharing, she tells me she’s been inundated with design requests and is designing and making more amazing dresses. We cannot wait to see more, awesome work Ella V!
Nothing is quite as humbling as trying to co-ordinate a photoshoot with suppliers, models and another photographer in Grahamstown weather! After a massively frustrating month at the beginning of the year we finally had lift off! But the weather had other ideas and turned on us … from a bright, still and sunshiny 38° day the clouds pushed in and the temperature plummeted to a chilly 18° bringing with it wind and drizzle … but being the professionals we are, we pushed through and went with the flow. And what amazing results we have to show for it. Thanks models for hanging in there and being so great!
I could absolutely NOT have pulled this off without my amazing friend and colleague, Michelle Guzinski, who drove through through from East London and took time out of her busy schedule just because she like the concept and location – you have to love friends like this! Her amazing shots are available on her blog, click here to see them. Thanks again my friend!
