"We're living in a jaded society and forgot to value our surroundings. Photography reminds me of how special a moment in life actually was when looking at the photos years later."
This shoot took place only a couple of days before the total lockdown of South Africa due to COVID-19. All my weddings in SA got cancelled and I had to book me on the next flight back home. I was disappointed leaving six weeks earlier than planned and not being able to photograph at such a beautiful place. But I’m a person who never loses faith. So I contacted a couple I’ve just met if they’d be keen to shoot with me the same day. And they said yes! These photos are the last memories of a magical sunset in Cape Town before the world pressed pause to defeat a virus.
