From Kama Catch Me – “The idea behind this shoot is to encourage future brides to dare to venture off the beaten track. Planning a wedding can at times seem like a mountain with a signpost at its base warning you that “its harder to climb than it looks”, and that with that hesitation it’s probably far easier to be pressured into trends or the influence of peers, past weddings and parents.

But for us we see that mountain more as an opportunity than a hinderance. An opportunity that’s worth the hard yards if only to see the magnificent view that lays upon it and beyond it! We believe that brides should feel free to express themselves and within that expression is where they’ll feel truly liberated.”

From Kama Catch Me – “Initially when our Model Leni Tabua from VOU Dance School turned up, she seemed very shy and even got us doubting whether she could pull off the concept. But as soon as we started shooting she absolutely brought it and within a short space of time we realized that this ‘Freedom of Expression’ was far deeper than just brides feeling liberated, this was much, much more.

Leni brought with her a raw, gritty, ballsy and edgy mood which totally flipped us inside out, and our concept on its head! This was a not just a ‘climb up the hill to get a glimpse of what could be’ kind of shoot, this was a WAR CRY, a battle stance, this was about women fighting for recognition, fighting for a voice, fighting for family, fighting for her liberation from so many chains, voices and doubts that have contained her for so long, and our images are the result.”
