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.

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-Studio and Forest maternity shoot-Inge-4

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.
