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!

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!
