Rob & Irene

October 2011 Magic Forest

When I arrived at Rob & Irene’s place in Durbanville last week I had no idea where we were heading for the photos. They told me they wanted to go to the Magic Forest in Protea Valley – I was super excited because I have often heard about it but never actually been there. Wow, the light was a photographer’s dream and the couple was…well, just so sexy and cute! Although the forest is mostly quite dark you just have to be on the look out for some stunningly lit spots. These two are both doctors and their wedding will be in Johannesburg (where they grew up) next month. Thank you Irene & Rob for meeting up with me and may your wedding day be  an awesome celebration with all your family and friends ! Enjoy!

(Note for photographers: I did 70% of this shoot with the 100mm L f2.8 macro lens – what a dream to photograph with this lens – it is razor sharp and the bokeh – blur –  effect is even more awesome on this lens at f2.8 than on the 50mm because of the 100m focal length, also you can put a little bit more distance between you and the subject. I am excited to also try out the macro function!)
