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 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.

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!
