Top South Africa Wedding

South Africa is a unique place.  Just like her people, the country seems to balance history, style, light and wildness into a perfect blend of colors, sensations & textures.  Robert and Natalie experienced all this in one perfect day.  Plus throw in two Top International Designers in the form of Klûk & CGDT to design all the clothing and dress you … what can be better?!  We loved capturing this memorable day – feel free to see even more of the wedding photos at Peartree Photography.

What a beautiful wedding. I love the photographer’s use of negative space. It is no surprise why this made it to the top! Congrats too all.

Jerzy Modrak - November 17, 2011 - 4:22 pm

The first image is a killer!. You can look at it for hours finding new interesting things or pondering about what is what. This what the best of photography is about: a sense of mystery.

Miranda Isber - November 21, 2011 - 1:21 am

Gorgeous photos — I especially enjoyed #’s 13, 15 and 16.

Germaine Lafountaine - November 21, 2011 - 1:23 am

Very, very lovely – what an absolute treasure for the bride and groom to keep together and share with family forever.

Irene Jones - November 21, 2011 - 1:24 am

Just loved numbers 31 and 32 (and of course the rest of these images). Beautiful work!

Joanie - November 21, 2011 - 5:01 am

Not only are these beautiful, but the way the sequence itself is arranged makes looking through them feel like you are involved in a real story – one being told engagingly and creatively.

Mary Fabian - November 22, 2011 - 12:22 pm

These are wonderful images. I admire your photographic skills. #26 is fantastic … telling a full story of the actions and emotions.

Isobelle Thornborough - November 22, 2011 - 12:24 pm

Every single one of your photographs is worth a million words. My very favorite is #11 (the black and white photograph of the bride) … but that’s my favorite right now. If I continue scrolling down, there are at least 20 that become my favorites). Your imagery is fantastic! Keep on sharing — I always enjoy viewing your blogs.

Ilya+Victoria :: Married :: Las-Vegas, NV

It all started when I got e-mail from Ilya about 5 month ago saying that him and Victoria are planning to fly all the way from Vladivostok, Russia to get married in Las Vegas. I called him the same day around 2 am due to the different time zones, and 15 minutes into the conversation I knew that it will be an amazing wedding. And it was indeed! Even though we spent only 3 days together, I can honestly say that they are my good friends. And it was a big privilege to photograph their wedding day. We combined it with In-n-out for lunch, crazy shooting in the evening, and club and drinks instead of reception. It was a special wedding for me. Not only because it was the first wedding I photographed when there were only a bride and a groom, but also, because I was the one signing the wedding certificate as a witness.

Kelly & Joey | Calgary Indian Wedding Photographer

Here is the Indian wedding of Kelly & Joey in Calgary, AB Canada.  The wedding took place on July 1st, which is Canada Day.  The day was hectic, that I actually forgot it was a holiday.  I ended up taking them to a little town called Cochrane to do their photos.  When we arrived there we tons of people around celebrating Canada Day.  You can just image the attention they received when they stepped out of the limo in their traditional Indian wedding garments.

Weston+Jessica :: Married :: Gainseville, GA

Not on every wedding you see guys playing soccer early in the morning instead of sleeping in or the bride and groom serving their favorite coffee and tea to the guests. But Weston and Jessica made sure to make their wedding day special for everyone. It was unique, full of emotions and epic in too many ways to describe! It was a great provilidge to photograph this wedding, as I’ve been friend of Weston’s family for a long time, and was honoured when they asked to fly to Gainesville to photograph this wedding.

Aaron Howe - October 22, 2011 - 9:20 pm

Fabulous beginning of soccer to set the wedding day off. So very down to earth — especially what I like. Nice work!

Alexandra - October 22, 2011 - 9:25 pm

Beautiful, beautiful imagery.

Yvonne Dunnington - October 24, 2011 - 7:54 pm

#6 (black and white) just captured my heart — such emotion. Thanks!

Jacqui - October 27, 2011 - 8:44 am

Matt Ethan - November 13, 2011 - 1:27 pm

That last image is an absolute cracker!

Shauna - November 14, 2011 - 8:22 am
