South African Honeymoon Shoot

Photography: Yeah Yeah Photography

I consider myself relatively savvy when it comes to social media- I mean, I’m on it Every. Day. Instagram is one of those portals that I feel people are missing out on its full potential. Sure it’s a great way to post pictures and keep up with blogs/ brands on a daily basis BUT I also use it as my personal “Google.” Let me explain…

When looking for vendors such as photographers, make up artists, hair stylists, etc. most people probably Google and/or use blogs such as Wedding Wire or The Knot, I choose to hashtag! I hop on my Instagram account and start looking for hashtags for vendors. For instance, I live in Arizona, so if I was looking for an Arizona makeup artist, I’ll do a search for #muaaz (Make Up Artist AZ). For photographers, I go into a deep rabbit hole! Once I find a photographer in an area that I connect with, I then look at the people THEY are following. Like a tiny community, like-minded vendors are friends with another and typically share similar styles and interests. Voila! That’s how you get your hands on AWESOME vendors while getting a sneak peak into their work through Instagram!

Loooooong story short, that’s how we found Yeah Yeah Photography! Helena is the magician behind the lens and she was BEYOND accommodating. After a few short weeks of communicating via email and brainstorming on sites, we finally met Helena at Llandudno Beach, Cape Town.

We chose this spot for its large boulders and white sands! I was expecting sunshine and a Snapchat- worthy glow at sunrise. Instead, we got gray skies and light sprinkles! I still adore the pictures and love its unique mood!

 The second location, which Helena was so gracious to drive us tourists to, is the beautiful town of Bo-Kaap. Known for its pastel colored homes and cobble stoned streets, the three of us walked this rainbow connection to take the rest of our photos!

 I know! I feel like I had a “double rainbow” moment too when I saw first laid eyes on Bo-Kaap! If you plan on going to Cape Town on holiday, we URGE you to go to Bo-kaap and see if for yourself! Hopefully you’ll get our sunshine!
