Great Brak Beach – Van Rensburg Family

Family Portraits

This was a last minute booking.  I met this family yesterday when we did a portrait session with the extended family celebrating the mom of the family’s 80th birthday.  I was almost late returning from the first session of the day but the timing was perfect and we were blessed with gorgeous light! Perfect session to end of a very busy weekend.


Garden Route Beach Portraits – Nel Family

Family Portraits

Estie contacted me for a family session while their whole family was together over a weekend in July.  I was already booked for both the Friday and Saturday afternoon so we opted for a early morning session on the beach, not to early though as the ladies wanted to get ready and there is a little one in the family.  I prefer late afternoon session so I do hope that I will see them all again to do a proper late afternoon session.  But with such a handsome bunch the time of day does not matter, they will always make gorgeous portraits!

wedding portraits hanno & ivette-12

Garden Route De Vette Mossel Wedding – Hanno And Ivette


Hanno and Ivette wanted a super relaxed, fun filled wedding. That is truly the best way to describe their beach wedding.  Both sides of their families was so amazing and they all made me feel like I was a close family friend, thank you!

I few word form the couple on my service as their wedding photographer:

“We are so impressed, Lynelle is fun, creative, hard working and goes the extra mile.  She has a passion for photography not a lot of people have.  She put so much effort into the wedding and pre-wedding shoots that we got the impression of her being in multiple places at once.  We received edited photos on both occasions before we went to bed, on that same day and OMW, it is beautiful.  We will definitely recommend her.  We are her number one fans.”

Hanno and Ivette toed the knot on the beach at De Vette Mossel Music was supplied by Disco and Sound and the team of Cronje Productions did the videography.
