Garden Route George Farm: Leonardo & Sammy

Weddings

Sammy was definitely the most relaxed bride I have ever met.  Our first meeting was just a few days before the wedding as a family member booked me for the wedding.  From our first meeting I just knew that it was going to be awesome working with them.  Their day was filled with true emotions, no pretences and a good dose of fun! I will always remember Leonardo and Sammy as the couple with the most gorgeous eyes.

Engagement Session George – Hennie & Jacobu

Couples

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’

Second large family session for the day with the Buitendag family. They have one of our best local tea gardens in the area, Die Oupastorie Groot Brakrivier.  If you have not been there before, treat yourself and go have a look.

I just love the location we selected for their family portraits, it suited this stunning family perfect!  Treasure these precious times of all being together, family is so precious.

Having a bit of fun at yesterday’s family portrait session. Angie and I have come a long way in our friendship. She shared a very emotional time in my life with me and was a constant support in that difficult time.  It was a privilege to capture these portraits for her and her family.
