The previous time I saw Matthew and Suraya was when they came so SA for their honeymoon in April 2010. They live in London, very close to the well known Paddington Station. Suraya is originally from Singapore. For their honeymoon shoot, we drove around in Cape Town, photographing them at different landmarks like the Bo-Kaap, Blouberg and Simonstown. (View the shoot HERE.) This time around, it was in London…with a little baby on it’s way! I stayed with Matthew and Suraya for  2 days and I don’t think anyone has every spoiled me as much. When i arrived, Suraya cooked us a traditional English meal with roast, Yorkshire-pudding and all! They also made me a hamper with snacks like Butterscotch sweets, tea from Harrods and Shortbread cookies. We went to the famous Portobello Market, Windsor, Harrods, Tower bridge and much more. We planned one “official” shoot in the most beautiful old market, Leadenhall Market. This space has been used in movie scenes and i can just see why. The rest of the time we just had fun and photographed wherever we went.

Matthew and Suraya, what a privilege to photograph you in London. Thank you so much for spoiling me, taking me to all these places that i’ve only seen on postcards and just being awesome to be around! And Suraya, as you said, hopefully we get to see each other again…when you are having a holiday in SA! I hope you enjoy these images as much as i enjoyed taking them. Lots and lots of blessings for you as a (soon to be) family.

 Hehee, junk mail is not just an “internet problem.”



 These guys looked like they knew what they were talking about:

How beautiful is Suraya?

 …and i love her crazy side too!




  i loved this poster illustration:

    Wow Wow Wow i just love these pics, Lizelle i think i am now a true “follower” of your work…

  • […] But…then in 2011 they opened their London home towards me and we did an amazingly fun pregnancy shoot with the 2 of them. Again, I was not sure if I will ever get to meet the baby gril with her handsome redhead UK dad and beautiful Singapore mom. (See the London shoot here.) […]
