Claire & Richard
"Here's the secret kids. None of us can vow to be perfect. In the end all we can do is
promise to love each other with everything we've got. Because love is the best thing we do."
Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother, Season 9, Episode 22
I have never been to the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, and boy, have I missed out. It is such a beautiful place! Claire & Richard had their engagement shoot here and I was thrilled to shoot in this new location, and what a stunning location it was! I enjoyed strolling around the gardens with this couple and I think we got some really nice photos of them as the sun was setting. The whole garden had an autumn feel to it and the afternoon sun just made the vibrant colours of this season come alive.
Claire and Richard had the cutest theme for their shoot, based on the popular sitcom, "How I met your Mother", but with a twist of their own - a bright yellow umbrella! These guys are such a pleasure to photograph and I am really looking forward to their wedding in September!
PS. the photo where Richard is dipping Claire, is next to a sign saying "the dancing couple" referring to the two intertwined trees behind them :-)
