pinnacle point engagement luan deidre_0021

Pinnacle Point: Luan & Deidré

Couples

No matter how much you try to plan something, the outcome is never in your hands.  Thankfully we serve an awesome God who always know best.

Luan and I initially planned a surprise picnic on friends of mine’s farm just outside Hartenbos, thank you dear Karien for all your help. Everything was set, decor rented, food bought and a beautiful bottle of sparkling wine. The weather was however hectic, rain pouring out every now and again.    At the last moment we opted for a spot at Pinnacle Point were Luan and Deidré was staying for a weekend away.  I met Luan at Pinnacle three hours before the planned session while Deidré was out for a bit of pampering with Marojean de Bod from MJ Artistry.  Once Luan saw the beautiful scenery, as you exit the walkway tunnel, he knew this was the perfect spot to propose.

We were blessed with a break in the rainy weather and the most beautiful light by the time Luan and Deidré arrived.  It was such a special moment and surely blessed as everything turned out perfect.  Congratulations and thank you that I had the honour to capture this awesome moment.  I cannot wait to capture your wedding next year in Swellendam, one of my favourite towns in South Africa.
