Jako & Andrea - SUP Adventure Engagement Shoot - Cape Town
SUP Adventure Engagement Shoot - Cape Town
Jako and Andrea wanted something a little different for their engagement shoot. They wanted to do something fun and have more natural photos. We met at Shift Espresso Bar at the V&A Waterfront beforehand to take a few conventional couples shots and then we headed out on SUP boards at SUP Cape Town. This was right up my alley as I shoot a lot of kiteboarding and surfing photography.
Andrea has a beautiful engagement ring. Jako's words: "Andrea wanted something out of the ordinary and since I collect minerals, I suggested Alxandrite, a very rare colour changing stone, named after Czar Alexander from Russia. I couldn't find any good stones in South Africa so we rather opted for colour changing sapphire, an equally rare stone from Brazil. It is green in the sunlight, blue-grey in the shade and in incandescent light. The one diamond is from my grandmother's ring and we designed the ring itself together."
