Styled shoot in the beautiful snow-clad mountains of Grabouw

On the 30th of August, while we were in level 2 lockdown, we decided to go ahead with our micro wedding styled shoot in Grabouw. There was snow on the mountains and crystal clear water pools all over the beautiful Elgin mountain area.

Snowy weather or not … the show must go on. With our coffees in hand, we braved the icy weather and started our trek up the mountain. There were a few unfortunate things that happened unexpectedly.

Micro wedding styled shoot

Memories from previous trips containing huge acres of beautiful pine trees were crushed when we saw that Forestry had cut off all the pine trees. We were a little bit dismayed by this fact as I thought we would be able to do the styled shoot between the beautiful pine trees.

Not only was it cloudy and rainy weather, but the snow was also on the mountain and we didn’t have pine trees for our micro wedding shoot (which was the most important part of this styled shoot that I want to bring over to brides out there….)

However, if you have the right photographer then you have nothing to worry about. Immediately Jacques and Chane from 25 Weddings got in their car and said WAIT. Off they went to scout the location to see where we can take the photos for the styled shoot. Jacques kept on telling me when I wanted to cancel the shoot that I must not worry about the weather. Some of the most beautiful photos can come out of this rainy weather.

Don't think your micro wedding photo's can not be done in the rain...

When they came back after their scouting, they took us to an area right in the middle of the road and said to us – this will look good on a photo. I looked at it and thought – how on earth… It is a road and flat fynbos BUT if you choose one of the best photographers in South Africa then you don’t need to be afraid. They made it work!! Look at the beautiful photo’s that we’ve gotten out of this shoot.
