The perfect venue for a stunning couple!  The day started out with the gloom of raging fires in George and the surrounding areas.  It left the day with a smoke filled sky, but the photos ended up looking gorgeous! Best wishes to you as a couple and all your future plans, thank you for the honour I had to capture this beautiful event.

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!

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’

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.
