Rhodes Memorial Engagement Photo & Video Shoot

Shaun & Micheline decided on Rhodes memorial in Cape Town as the location for their Engagement photo & video shoot.  I have not photographed here in a long time and it was refreshing to use some of the elements of the building as well as the natural forest for their photos.

This Rhodes Memorial engagement shoot was also the first time we introduced our wedding videography services and Shaun & Micheline kindly agreed to be our ‘models’.  And what stunning models they made – with such kind and friendly souls.  After so many years together, the couple is clearly still so much in love.  This made our jobs so easy in getting those authentic, real in-between moments. 

The Rhodes Memorial as a Cape Town Engagement Location

It was a hot day, and the Rhodes memorial and restaurant were very busy, but fortunately this Cape Town engagement location offers so many diverse spots to choose from.  The memorial building itself has lots of different lines and corners with interesting light (depending on the time of day).  There is the little forest area with beautiful mature trees and if you are willing to do a small walk, you can even use the majestic Table Mountain scenery as well.  We shot at the beginning of the South African spring and were blessed with gorgeous, lush, green trees and beautiful yellow wildflower patches.  Lastly, the views are absolutely amazing and definitely a must if you are going to shoot here.

Shaun & Micheline thank you for being such awesome troopers.  After this wonderful experience of shooting your engagement photos, I know that your wedding will be just as amazing. 

Shaun & Micheline got married a few weeks later at the beautiful McPherson Wedding Venue in Blouberg,  you can view their award winning wedding here.
