Gora and I have pretty much grown up together, so when he proposed to his gorgeous Natalie, I was completely thrilled and told them that we HAD to do an engagement shoot next time they were visiting Cape Town over from the UK.
Sure enough, they were soon over on a weekend work trip, so we got to planning a shoot.

Gora and Natalie share the same sense of humour, so riffing on the idea that Gora is a) tone-deaf (which he is) and b)chased Natalie to be his partner (which he didn’t) we had a lot of fun with some silly shots.
