Garden Route Cafe Gannet The Ochre Venue: Bjorn & Susan

Weddings

Susan planned every little thing to the finest detail for this beautiful day.  Well done Susan, it truly was an unforgettable day.  From Susan’s first email inquiry I just knew that I want to be part of her and Bjorn’s big day.  Although the weather was not ideal to start with, we were surely blessed with some gorgeous light!  It is things like these that makes each couple’s day unique.

May you be blessed in this awesome life ahead!

Garden Route Mossel Bay Park: Renier & Nadia

Couples

Renier and Nadia is tying the knot in October and I am the fortunate one to capture their wedding.  Like so many of my clients, they are not local but decided to celebrate their big day in our beautiful region.  This engagement session was also our first meeting.  They are a stunning couple and I am so looking forward to the wedding!  The scenic shot of them on the ocean pool wall at The Point in Mossel Bay is kinda cool – the clouds formed a streak in the sky as if a plane passed by, this is cool cause Renier is a pilot and Nadia a pilot in the making.

Weddings

 

 

From my first meeting with Nico and Sam it was evident that this is a love story of opposites attract in more than one way! That is what makes their relationship work, accepting their differences and the fact that we are created to compliment and complete each other.

Nico and Sam, if you can always remember this and build your marriage on the solid foundation of the One True God, you will have a great marriage and able to survive all the storms that this life will bring your way.

It was such a pleasure to work with your families, they all made me feel so welcome, kinda like part of the family, thank you so much to you all!

Albert & Karin tied the knot at Surval, a gorgeous venue in the Klein Karoo, just outside Oudtshoorn.  The day was shared with close family, friends and colleagues, each of them individually thanked by Albert during his speech. The day was a feast for the eye and overflowed with emotions.

Neil and Niki’s session had a bit of an added family session. They were visiting Neil’s parents for his mom’s birthday.

Niki absolutely adores dolphins, so her excitement captured when they noticed dolphins is priceless!  It is natural moments like these that capture true memories.  They are a gorgeous couple and I am looking forward to their wedding in August, Niki is going to be a stunning bride.

See you soon!

Garden Route De Vette Mossel: Jasper & Michelle

Weddings

The groom will always be the one I’ll remember from this day, not that his SnowWhite-like bride did not make an impression.  Jasper was overwhelmed with emotions as Michelle came walking down the steps to the beach.  But the most outstanding from this day has to be his speech!  So I am super happy about the speech images turning out the way it did.  Thinking on your feet and adjusting your lights as quickly as possible sure helps at a venue like De Vette Mossel.

Congratulations Jasper and Michelle and thank you for sharing this stunning day with me.

Couples

Sun, see and milkshakes, fun overload!  I can only imagine how much fun their wedding will be later this year, cannot wait!

I loved the change in scenery, the challenge to just arrive at a location and shoot with whatever the location offers. No scouting, no planning, just all spontaneous fun!  In a way I think that is a bit of a reflection of who Jerome and Brigette are as individuals and as a couple.

Thank you for an awesome session, see you soon!

Vleesbaai Excelsior Wedding Venue: Hans & Corlene

Weddings

It is always kind of awkward when a family member or close friend book me for a wedding, my main concern is that the couple won’t like my style or not be comfortable with me.  With our first meeting my concerns was quickly put to ease, we just clicked! Hans and Corlene is the kind of people you just like from the get go.

Congratulations to the both of you on a stunning event.  You are blessed with awesome families and friends on both sides. I am looking forward to see how your family grow, best wishes!
