19 Sep NASTASSJA, Hermanus
What an amazing shoot! Lovely Nastassja rocked a bohemian style Jacqueline’s Bridal Couture wedding dress with make-up by Leoumé Vos Bridal Make-up Artist. This shoot wasn’t going to happen as we got home very late after the wedding expo at Bona Dea Private Estate and the clouds were starting to cover the skies making us wonder if we should call it off because of possible rain.
We had no other date to move it to as the dress had to be returned to the designer and I would leave again for Gauteng for the next wedding. Nastassja was not bothered with the cold and we made a last minute decision to get make-up done, leaving the hair loose and natural and drove off to get to a quiet spot to take some photos.
We had quite an audience nonetheless – people were very worried about her as they thought the bride got wet on her wedding day! It was windy and we decided to do a lovely glamorous session just for fun, which turned into a ‘trash-the-dress’ unintentionally as Nastassja fell over by accident when the water hit her unexpectedly. Hats off to her though because instead of running for the nearest towel and warm clothes, she worked that cold wet dress which resulted in some amazing images!
The images of the water hitting her from behind won a top 10 place in it’s category for the 2015 Admired in Africa Awards.
