I love Cape Town and all the beautiful places there are to photograph! On day two of our trip to South Africa, Caitlin set up a couples session with Gal and Mariah in the city. It was so much fun to work with Mika Lamb from MAC and Halie Kellagher once again! After we did hair and makeup at our Air BnB, we headed over to the amazing neighborhood of Bo-Kaap. I knew it was going to be pretty after insta-stalking cool places to go in Cape Town, but I had no idea it would really be this vibrant and this exciting.
While Gal is from Cape Town and Mariah is from Florida, these two met during Mariah’s first trip to South Africa. With so much in common and coincidental family connections, they have been inseparable ever since. They only spend a few weeks at a time apart and are head-over-heels, madly in love. Adventuring the world and making incredible memories, these two are living the traveler’s love dream! Not to mention, I just love a good long-distance love story! Sessions like these remind me of why I love connecting with other creatives, bloggers, travelers, and couples around the world.
