Black is Beautiful
DIAMANT ESTATE | CATHERINE MAC
The talented beyond words Catherine and I had a brief chat a loooooong time ago about doing a little shoot where we get to play the whole day: without limits, rules, specifics…just pure blissful fun and creative explosions. And so it started off as a little idea which grew into what you can see here.
Our aim was to show bride’s out there that black can be incredibly feminine and in fact really “pretty”, it does not have to be a dark heavy colour if used in the right way.
We did not really have a plan, we had some elements, we had a great team and we just rocked up one morning and started playing our socks off. Got to love what we do!
A special thanks to a few friends that made this shoot possible:
Catherine, who just went with my vision, never questioned my weird colour combinations and vague (or in fact terrible) planning skills.
Thanks to Marize Louw – our gorgeous model for the day, who pulled in to play dress-up in Kobus’s gorgeous dresses. Isn’t she just the most beautiful woman ever!
Celeste, you are a star. I can come up with the creative ideas, but you grounded me, were a logistical life saver and a level headed companion.
Marli, gosh. Like a true pro you improvised and came up with the most beautiful looks once you saw the flowers and dresses. Loved that you were so relaxed and flexible and just went with it.
Kobus!!! Your dresses, wow they were perfect. Thanks for being an awesome friend and creative inspiration.
Thanks to the Pretty Blog for your beautiful complements and featuring our pics first, we love you guys! Now it’s my turn to share some of our favourite – more floral orientated – shots with you. Enjoy!
