LOVE IS IN THE AIR: Lauren & Dallas with JEAN PAUL PHOTOGRAPHY

It was the 14th February 2018 and it was Valentines Day! Lauren Brink & Dallas Sabbagh had just won our 2018 JEAN PAUL PHOTOGRAPHY VALENTINES COMPETITION!!! Clearly excited by the news, this 'in love' couple wasted no time in booking their winnings of themed / location photo shoot! Due to our chock-a-bloc schedule, the shoot did not take place straight away, but this didn't stop the careful planning from taking place. We decided on two separate themes. The first one being a 'playful young couple in love' and the other being a 'romantic, vintage traveling couple.' As we decided on the sunset and twilight for the 'playful couple' we opted to shoot the slightly more dramatic 'vintage couple' first. Lauren & Dallas wasted NO time getting into character and we all had many laughs as we played dress-up, smoked fake cigars and ran after the moving trains!

As the sun began to set (really quickly!) we all rushed over to the long grass which would be a perfect setting for our 'playful young couple in love' shoot. After a quick wardrobe change we on our way to producing these soft and tranquil scenes that we had planned and hoped for.

We could not have asked for more and this warm and windless evening was ideal in every way. Well done to everyone involved! A special thanks go out to my partner and wife, Gabriela Veaudry for planning the themes and organising and supplying the props!

Preggy Beach Shoot – Nahoon Reef

One stunning Friday morning last year, on the 2nd May 2014 at 6:30am we met with Cheri-Lee and her hubby at the Nahoon Reef to capture her precious preggy bump.... This shoot was FANTASTIC, from the lighting, the gorgeous back drop, to the stunning sunrise, as well as this adventurous couple not a afraid of a little cold water and a chilly nip in the air. We enjoyed every bit of this photo shoot as well as working with such a lovely couple. Have a look below for some of our favourite pictures captured on the day.

Last year we were honoured to update some of the photos for a prestigious restaurant known here in East London for their fine food and wine. Grazia is a restaurant that established itself within the restaurant scene, as an upmarket venue, offering excellent service and food. Overlooking the Esplanade, with Orient Beach to the right and Eastern Beach to the left, this venue has spectacular sea views that can be enjoyed on their outside patio. Ensure that you go and experience this stunning venue and at the same time see our photographs within the menu. See some examples below.

The Winner of Creative Ideas Modelling Competition 2014

We at JEAN PAUL PHOTOGRAPHY decided for the first time this year to hold a competition for all the aspiring models out there, to stand a chance to win a modelling  portfolio valued at R2000.00.

The competition was run over a 3 week period from the 2nd June 2014 to 23rd June 2014. All we required was a picture emailed of the entrant, along with a creative idea or ideas of their choice.

We were extremely thrilled with all the entries we received and will definitely consider running this competition again in the future.

The winner for our CREATIVE IDEAS MODELLING COMPETITION 2014 was Nina Ann Striglia.

It was a pleasure working with her and we enjoyed her enthusiasm and easy going nature on the shoot.
