Beach Monochrome Engagement Shoot by Dillon Kin

Beach Monochrome Engagement Shoot by Dillon Kin | SouthBound Bride

We started the morning thinking pink, but this afternoon we’re going monochrome with an absolutely beautiful beach engagement shoot from Dillon Kin, a featured member of our SBB directory. Tammy and JP are high school sweethearts and you can tell they already share many years of love and laughter from the easy intimacy that infuses these pics – alongside that gorgeous Cape light! I love the way that they chose to accentuate the scenery with pristine black and white contrast, along with cute accessories like balloons and an umbrella. Congratulations, lovebirds! Read more

African Sunset Engagement Shoot by Tanya Jacobs Photography

African Sunset Engagement Shoot by Tanya Jacobs Photography | SouthBound Bride

Afternoon lovely ones! I have such a pretty engagement shoot to share with you, from a group of the loveliest wedding pros based in KZN, including photographer Tanya Jacobs and stylist Jana Vorster. When Tanya sent over Gareth and Natalie’s pics, I was struck by how much more than a couple shoot was – in fact, it was also a beautiful gift for a treasured friend. Tanya says of the bride to be: “Natalie is such a gentle soul, always wanting to please others and ensure everyone around her is happy, even if this means she has to suffer/struggle/work exceptionally hard. When thinking about her engagement shoot, I knew I would need to do something amazing for her in return for all the love she gives to others.” How sweet is that? The result is this lovely styled shoot, which reminds me of Out of Africa or The English Patient - rustic luxe, vintage romance! Read more

Cozy Winter Engagement Shoot by Angie Capri

Cozy Winter Engagement Shoot by Angie Capri | SouthBound Bride

Afternoon, lovelies! As you’ve probably picked up by now, I’m am absolutely dog-besotted, so when photographer Angie Capri sent over this absolutely adorable winter shoot including not just the sweetest couple, Melissa & CJ, but their dog Yukon too, I just couldn’t resist sharing it with you! It’s such a relaxed shoot (in the dreamiest light), that really shows off the personalities of the couple (and their pooch) and instead of being stiff, formal posed pics, are the kind that show them enjoying time together as a little family, and I’m sure are much-treasured! I also love the way that Melissa and CJ chose to have their wedding and e-shoots in two of their favourite locations – nothing like celebrating life’s biggest milestones in places that you absolutely love.

I love engagement shoots with a little somethin’ somethin’ extra, especially when it results in sheer romance, as this unique night e-shoot from the fab Riekert Cloete does. With clever lighting, some fun after dark locations, and a loved-up bride and groom-to-be on board, it has that special magic that reminds me of a moonlit night or a sky full of stars. Read more

Happy Easter long weekend, lovelies! Whatever you have planned for the next few days, I hope you have a relaxed and blessed time (and drive safe on those roads, ‘kay?).

Sizzling Sunset Engagement by Vizion Photo

Sizzling Sunset Engagement by Vizion Photo | SouthBound Bride

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE hearing the stories of how couples meet- they’re like snowflakes or fingerprints, no two exactly the same. Today’s love story is a modern one, a connection forged online and confirmed in person, leading to a happy ever after for Carina and Wayne. That connection sparked and sizzled on this glamorous beach engagement shoot with the Cape sunset as a backdrop from SBB sponsors, the fab Vizion Photo, with sunlight sparkling off the sea, and Table Mountain standing majestic on the horizon.

Fired Up Engagement by Alexis Diack

Fired Up Engagement by Alexis Diack | SouthBound Bride

Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? And when that uniform is a fire fighter’s… well. Take one handsome fireman (who some of you might recognise from the most recent series of Survivor SA) and one drop dead gorgeous makeup artist, and sparks fly. Philip and Lynnal are the loved-up couple in today’s fab, colourful engagement shoot from Alexis Diack – and Philip even brought along his gear for a few of the pics! I adore Lynnal’s stylish outfit changes too, and the fact that they ended of with a bit of flare, literally (supervised by Fireman Philip of course!). Read more
