The Pretty Blog is a huge influential platform for all things wedding, decor and lifestyle. Cape Town is a creative hub and Christine Meintjes from The Pretty Blog chats to us about her Cape Town photography style and favourite influencers to follow.
1 How does Cape Town influence your photography and style?
The natural beauty of Cape Town really helps to create images that don’t have to be to styled or staged. Which really helps create more natural photos.
2 What do you love most about this city?
I love the fact that even though the city is a cosmopolitan, vibrant energetic city, it also has a beautiful balance of a relaxing lifestyle. I think that is what makes it really special. People in Cape Town know how to relax over weekends and have a balanced life.
I’m also a HUGE fan of good food and wine, which is one of the core attractions of Cape Town, I believe. Good food and good people.
3 If your friend was visiting Cape Town for the first time, where would you take them first?
Bree street, as well as wine farms in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek region.
4 Describe the city in three words.
Vibrant, trendy, welcoming,
5 If you were to create a souvenir that represents Cape Town, what would it be or look like?
A beautiful modern illustration of Table Mountain. Table Mountain plays such a major role in the beautify of the city!
