Surisa and Ronald Wedding Day.

Ilze and Tal wedding in the forest of Knysna

On the 20th of December 2014 I  photographed an amazing, fairy-like wedding in the forest of Knysna. Ilze and Tal made a lifelong promise to each other at their self-made altar at Jubilee Creek, outside Knysna. The ceremony was very special, with lots of tears, smiles and blessings. At times it was challenging to stay focused. All I wanted to do is to watch these beautiful souls dancing with each other in their celebration and bathe in their love.

Ceremony was followed by fun reception at Totties, outside Knysna. Its impossible not to mention creative decorations and unique style of the wedding, created by bride Ilze. Thank you Ilze and Tal for a wonderful experience!

About Boudoir Photography

Boudoir photography is the art of capturing the sensual nature of femininity. It is a celebration of a women’s beauty.

I imagine boudoir style to be a mixture of elegance, sexuality and internal beauty shining through. Boudoir photoshoots can become very therapeutic through accepting your body and celebrating its beauty.  Brides also love to order boudoir photographs to surprise their grooms on their wedding day.

Most of my boudoir photographs stay unpublished due to the privacy concerns. On this page you will find a small collection of photographs from some gorgeous ladies that felt brave enough to let me showcase some of their photographs.
