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!

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.

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.
