Garden Route Wedding De Vette Mossel - Stuart & Ellen-28

Garden Route Wedding De Vette Mossel – Stuart & Ellen

Weddings

Stuart & Ellen tied the knot in the beautiful old church in Great Brak.  The celebration with family and friends was a real feast at De Vette Mossel.  My first meeting with Stuart and Ellen was early this year, what stood out about them was their kindness and the way they laugh! When I met Stuart’s dad I knew he got his way of laughing from his dad.  Ellen’s mom is definitely someone who knows what she wants, she wanted everything to be perfect for her daughter, so I was very pleased when I was told that I exceeded her expectations.  Thank you for sharing your special day with me!

I few words from the bride:

“They say that one of the most important things you can get right for your wedding day is your choice of photographer. Well, with you, we can honestly say that it was one of the Best decisions we made!!! When you told me you were originally from Bloemfontein, We just knew this was faith, definitely a sign that you are our photographer. Lynelle, you are a super star, full of energy and so enthusiastic about your work, very talented and easy to work with,  we both felt so relaxed around you.

Thank you for going above and beyond to capture our very Special day! Literally going down on the ground or up in the air, even in a bush filled with Thorns to get the Perfect shot!! You are Amazing, beautiful inside and out!!

We appreciate all the little moments captured between us and our guests, all the emotions, laughter and love, giving us memories of our wedding day that we shall cherish forever. Not only, do you take gorgeous photos, but the unique way of catching special moments between people!

Thank you for making us look absolutely beautiful ♡

Love

Ellen & Stuart”

Garden Route Mossel Bay Maternity Session – Inge

Maternity

Taking the time to do a bit of a personal project is always rewarding! Inge only wanted a few studio portraits to remember this precious time of expecting their first little one. I asked her to extend the session with a bit of a project for me. The recent fires in Dana Bay was scary and tragic, I am also a Dana Bay resident and was directly affected by this. I do believe that one should rather focus on the positive than the negative. Thank you Melissa, you were such a great sport for helping me! Makeup by Gabriella Netto.

We got the time of day just right!  As I entered Brenton-on-Sea, the whole area was covered in soft light with the overhanging clouds.  We thought we would have to wait for the sunlight to soften before we could start, but this huge soft-box made things easy.  At the end of the session the sun came out blazing hot and bright!  The timing was perfect!  Another awesome family to add to my amazing client list.  Welcome and congratulations to the birth of your little one, hope to meet the new family member one day.

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.

Booking sessions on the beach during the busy holiday season is kind off risky. The wind was just horrible and we could not reschedule, so I am very thankful for the option of a studio facility. Marissa and her family came all the way from Gauteng to visit the Garden Route for the holliday season.  I worked with Marissa 14 years ago, and at that time we both were expecting our second child, it is hard to believe they are both turning 15 in 2017.  It was an honour to capture your beautiful family and it was great to see you again. Your girls are so gorgeous!  Enjoy the rest of your holiday and travel home safely.

Nadia’s name means ‘HOPE’.  Her life story is a reflection of her name and I was honored to be trusted in capturing her and Johnathan’s day the way I feel is best.  The results are rewarding when clients trust you and treat you as a professional.  Thank you for your absolute trust in me as wedding photographer and to be part of such an amazing and heart warming day.

The absolute beauty of an expecting mother! We initially planned a session in the forest with a few beach photos afterwards, but things do not always work out as planned.  So happy with how thing turned out in the end, love these images of beautiful Roxzaan and her family expecting their second little one.

Weddings

Oh wow what an overload of awesomeness at this wedding! Elmarie went above and beyond in considering each and everyone at her and Evan’s wedding. Congratulations and thank you for the honor to be part of this special event!

I few words from the bride: “Once again like a young girl, I could look forward to my wedding. I originally wanted a male photographer as I thought they understood a bride better. However, we decided on you and we do not regret our decision. You truly are a professional, who was able to keep me calm. One can truly see your personality shine through when you work, despite having to lie down in the bushes! Every time I look at our pictures I remember the joy I felt on my wedding day, thank you for capturing every little detail. Thank you, you have immortalized our special day through your wonderful pictures.  Evan and Elmarie.”
