Engagement Session George – Hennie & Jacobu


I am not big on watching television, so I had now idea that Hennie entered the very popular Afrikaans reality program ‘Boer Soek n Vrou’.  I met Hennie when I was the photographer at his twin brother’s wedding two years ago.  I received Jacobu’s enquiry just after they got engaged and was curios to see how the young lady looked that stole Hennie’s hart.  I did a bit of ‘research’ on Facebook and there it was, apparently their engagement was kinda news and I soon learned why, their story is a unique one, one for the books!

I only remember Hennie as the brother that loved to dance, the one with the twinkle of mischief in his eyes.  Seeing him with Jacobu was just super sweet, the way he playfully made her feel super special.  Jacobu is just a sweetheart and the most memorable about her is the fact that she does not know how pretty she is and that in itself just makes her even more beautiful.  She truly is beautiful from the inside out. From her first email I just knew that it was going to be awesome to capture their wedding, I can hardly wait!

This ‘Boer’ does not need to ‘soek’ anymore, he found his soon to be ‘Vrou’

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!
