Stilbaai Engagement Session: Ryno & Sarah

Couples

Something about these two make me think of my husband and me.  Maybe that is a good sign as we are celebrating our 23rd anniversary this coming November.

Ryno and Sarah visited family in Stilbaai, so it was the ideal time to do their engagement shoot.  Such a stunning couple, I am super excited about capturing their wedding later this year.  Sarah is a real sweet hart with a bubbly, warm personality, no wonder Ryno fell in love with her. I felt super comfortable with them, like we were old friends.  Dear Ryno and Sarah, enjoy this exciting time of planning your wedding, I cannot wait!

Botlierskop Surprise Engagement: Leslie & Monique

Couples

I am so glad I am not a guy.  I cannot imagine the stress of planning a surprise engagement.  Leslie however did an awesome job of it and everything was perfect.  I felt like a stalker, but it was so worth it.  Congratulations Monique, it seems like you got your dream guy!  You are a stunning couple and I’ve been blessed to be part of this awesome moment, even though Leslie decided to pop the question at Botlierskop in the middle of the day, light wise not a photographer’s ideal time of day.  Enjoy the excitement of planning the big day!

Garden Route Wedding Gourikwa Reserve: Tinus & Anneri

Weddings

Tinus and Anneri tied the knot at one of my favourite venues, Gourikwa Reserve.  The day was celebrated with family, friends and a very important four legged companion, Max. Max made his presence known during the ceremony, I think it was to confirm his approval of Tinus.  The day was captured by one of our South African television programs, Pasella – looking forward to see the day from their point of view.  The day was filled with emotions and fun and off course a real South African braai feast.

Garden Route Knysna Private Wedding: Jerome & Brigette

Weddings

From her first email inquiry I just knew that this bride is different and it is going to be awesome to be part of their wedding.  We had our first meeting more than a year before the wedding.  Their wedding date was planned perfectly, giving Knysna time to heal after the raging fires and also the day celebrating their anniversary as a couple. Meeting up in Cape Town for their engagement session was such a treat, you can only have fun with such an amazing down to earth couple.

This was a wedding all about family and friends, confirmed by their choices of prints after the wedding.  The ceremony was held in Brigitte’s granny’s garden, making the day extra special.
