Raphael & Melissa | Wedding | Kalk Bay

rebeccagroves-wedding-photographer-kalk-bay-raph-melissa_0001 cover.jpg

Kalk Bay is most definitely one of the most romantic destinations in the Cape for a wedding in my book. The harbour, the waters edge, the bohemian culture and sea life provide such a colourful rich backdrop for capturing a wedding day.

Melissa and Raphael pulled out all the stops to put their own personal stamp on the day. Those chose the stunning venues of Chartfield House to have their ceremony and Harbour House for their reception. They also even included a little moment with their beloved pugs and infused their Jewish and Greek cultures on the day.

It was such a pleasure to capture their day and I wish this beautiful couple all the best for their new life together.

Cuyler Family | Baby Photo Shoot

Meet Keenan & Keren! How precious and sweet are these two?!

When Elana was pregnant, herself and her husband, Anton, were shocked to find out that they were expecting twins! A little girl and a little boy who were born just over a month ago, slightly premature. Anton & Elana really wanted to capture their two new little additions while they were still new born and invited me into their home to capture them all as a new family.

Keenan & Keren were so tiny and as good as gold as they lay their sleeping, occasionally they would also nestle into each other which was just adorable to see!

Davide & Aimee | Engagement

rebeccagroves-wedding-photographer-engagement-davide-aimee_0001 b.jpg

For anyone who didn’t know this, The word “photography” was created from the Greek roots φωτός (phōtos), meaning “light” and γραφή (graphé) meaning “drawing”- together meaning “drawing with light”.

It is no surprise then that a photographer’s eye is always in search of the light: the way it balances and reflects, how it dances and shines.

For Aimee and Davide, the weather, location and time of day all came together for a moment of great lighting and I was spoilt not just to be capturing a beautiful couple in a great location – but with some beautiful light to boot!

Aimee and Davide, it was a great pleasure to be behind the lens for you and I wish you all the joy and happiness as you start off your new lives together as husband and wife..

It’s a wonderful thing to see a beautiful family where children grow and thrive in a context of loving parents. As a photographer it is a privilege to be to be invited into these homes to spend a bit of time with these families and capture them. The Alberts family is no exception.

Andre & Liz’s children, Samuel and Zoe are so cute and it was with great joy I had the opportunity to capture this loving unit, along with Granny, who was visting from the UK on a lovely South African sunny day!

Thank you Andre & Liz for inviting me into your home and letting me capture you all!

Job & Kim | Wedding | Houwhoek Inn

rebeccagroves-wedding-photographer-houwhoek-inn-kim-job_0001 cover.jpg

I love hearing the unique stories behind each of the couples I have the privilege of working with on their big day. Kim and Job are an international couple – Kim is from South Africa, and Job is from Belgium. They met in Belgium while Kim was on an internship for her law degree there.

Once engaged, (see Job’s amazing proposal here), Job made the move to beautiful Cape Town, and has a deep love for this land and it’s people.

When two cultures collide at a wedding it always turns out to be a colourful event. Job & Kim infused the Belgium culture wedding traditions with the South African ones. Job bought over the best of Belgium beer for the wedding and his family also planned a traditional theatrical performance that had the audience erupting with laughter. When the dancing started, Job’s brother took to the dance floor and taught the entire wedding party traditional Belgium dancing.

I know what it is like to live away from your family.

So when there is a moment when you all get together to see each other it is so special.

I have known Sophie for a while now, and like me, she is from the UK and married a South African, David, and they decided to live here in South Africa.

In December Sophie’s parents, two sisters and brother came over to visit South Africa to enjoy the festive season altogether, and I’m sure the sunshine too!

Recently I have had the privilege of getting behind the lens for gorgeous little Stella Rose’s first year of life. Stella was born slightly premature last November and I have been doing photos of her from when she was 1 week old.

It has been amazing to see this little girl grow and develop into such a cutie pie! The Pettit family invited me to Stella’s 1st birthday party a few weeks ago as we concluded our 1st year of capturing this precious little life.

Richie & Marina | Wedding | Byron’s Bay, Australia

rebeccagroves_richiemarina_wedding-byronsbay-australia 0001 cover.jpg

I always get inspired when I meet couples that live in the goodness of life. Meeting Richie and Marina in Cape Town a few years ago I very quickly became aware of their zest for travel, love for humanity and passion for each other. Having traveled through South America, Africa and India, they had so many wonderful and interesting stories to tell. Coupled with that, they had recently had a new addition to the family – little Ruby Olivia who had brought such joy to them.
