Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Kaapschehoop

Kaapschehoop is a picturesque ex-mining village in the Mpumalanga low veld. We were last here nine years ago for a friend’s wedding – before being involved in wedding work was even a glimmer of an idea. We remember this place fondly as an arty little village full of wild horses, ducks, chickens and magical mist. When we found ourselves with a morning to spare before our flight out of Nelspruit after a wedding, we jumped at the chance to go back to this gem. Exploring this beautiful little town was the perfect end to a crazy double wedding weekend for us. With blue skys and dramatic clouds for days, I really hope we get a chance to shoot a wedding here one day! (just putting it out to the universe…)

Andy is hands down my favourite subject to photograph, so apologies in advance for all the pics of my amazing and dorky person.

  • Just some bright and rich colours. It’s so crazy but colour makes me so happy! The more deep and vibrant the  better ☺️ I always try and edit as true to colour as possible for this very reason, and of course it’s way more timeless.
  • Honestly one of my favorite photos of all time and one of the most special and intimate weddings we have had the honour of shooting. This gem of a day is up on @lovemydress at the moment which is a most wonderful distraction from  the craziness of corona admin, trying to help out our couples effected by all of this and trying to keep myself (relatively) sane.
  • Anyone else feel like they are living in the first chapter of some crazy dystopian novel? What an insane time to be alive! Here are two hot as babes to help take your mind of the news we’re being bombarded with ☺️
  • Sam and Paul. Marry someone that makes you laugh in even the most serious situations ☺️
  • Anyone else woke up to a crazy world? We kind of feel like we are reading the opening pages of a dystopian novel! So here to try and balance all this crazy shit out, are two insanely happy just married babes!
  • Cuz right now we all need more smiles ☺️
  • Wedding guesting. The side of your wedding you’re least likely to see. Luckily we’re there to show you what you missed ☺️
  • Carey and Rich and some pretty epic mountains in the reflection.
  • I am absolutely in love with the sequence of moments between Claudia and her dad, and their excitement about seeing each other, and then going off to get her married 😍
  • Letting your hair down and having a little boogie with your besties. Definitely a contender for one of our favourite parts of the wedding day!
  • Mondays are always a good day to post a little silhouette shot with a sky worthy of having a motivational quote written on it ☺️
  • Glitter heal and most excellent carpet pattern 😍

  • I’ve played guitar and bass for a while and always wanted to try sitar. Had my first lesson today in Varanasi. What an amazing instrument! So different to guitar. I was very shit and my fingers feel like they’ve been manicured with a sword, but I love this thing.
  • Following @the_szerd around temples since 2010.

Our first big overseas adventure was to Nepal, where we got engaged. The travel bug bit hard and it’s been love and magical unicorn farts ever since. Here’s to a trillion more adventures with this person ❤️
  • There’s something beautiful and timeless about a shawl or saree. The Indian woman are such a vibrant contrast to the dusty streets.
  • Up to our eyebrows with hot chai (tea) and hotter curry. #wishyouwerehere #notreally
  • Unbelievable detail carved into these old stone mansions (called “Havelis”) from the 1800s. The one took 55 years to finish! It may take us that long to finish painting our kitchen...
  • Epic views over the small desert city of Jaisalmer in North West India, not far from the Pakistan border. 
First time in this beautiful country. Managed to step in cow shit within the first 2 minutes and dog shit within the first 10. Welcome to India!
  • This weekend exceeded all expectations! 🙌 Sooo many good bands, the friendliest people, and delicious veggie food. The mud and rain even made it a proper English festival experience 🌧 This was our first @downloadfest and we WILL be back! Thank you @the_szerd for enjoying the same noisy music as me and always being my band buddy 😘
  • This summer in Europe has been epic for bands so far! Another one from our “must-see” band list. Alice in Chains 🔥 Definite highlights were this song, Them Bones, and Nutshell, which Jerry Cantrell dedicated to Layne Stayley. Totes emosch 😥 @aliceinchains
  • I played bass for a long time and this man was my bass crush 😍 #justinchancellor was worth every second of the 20 year wait to watch this man play 🙌 ... and I got his plectrum ! That’s getting framed.
  • Tool 🙌 I waited 20 years to see this band and it finally happened last night in Berlin, of all places. They were a massive influence on my own band and were actually one of the reasons @the_szerd and I started dating over 15 years ago. I even played in a Tool tribute band back in the day. Excellent times!
  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
