Ford Mustang GT shoot for Jack Daniels

A Mustang is a smoking hot guitar. Seriously, it’s even cooler up close, and way cooler once you start the engine. I’m not a petrol-head by a long shot, but I can appreciate a well-built and appealing car. And this car is appealing. And I shot it. I can add it to the Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, Aston Martin DBs, Jag XFR’s and a host more seriously sick cars I’ve had the privilege to shoot. The images are for Jack Daniels who is currently running a competition where you can win this desirable vehicle. So, I needed to make it look every bit as hot as it is.

That is what makes wedding photography special – synergy of creative to subject, event to moment, and the serendipity of meeting really cool people, in really intimate settings. Herewith some images from W & H’s wedding at Stellenrust, Stellenbosch. Rain stayed away just long enough for us to have a great outdoors wedding, and a grand old time shooting in the vineyard. Enjoy.
