Congratulations Johann & Danielle! This was a very cold and wet, but warm hearted session. It was a huge honour to capture this special moment.
Midday beach weddings is not always easy to capture, not mentioning the crazy wind! But oh my goodness, this was all just picture perfect! It was such a pleasure to capture this beautiful event, thank you for the honour. Lutho and Mosa asked me to post this note of thanks to everyone who helped to make this day unforgettable:
“To our family and friends.
Thank you for the support, the love and the laughter.

Tristan and René travelled to the Garden Route for friends’s wedding and made use of this opportunity to have an engagement session on the beach. Such a sweet couple, I enjoyed this session so much. Best wishes for the big day, your wedding photographer is going to have a blast!
Brink and Marli travelled to the Garden Route to finalise some wedding arrangements and meet up with the service providers. This was the perfect time for us to meet face to face and do their engagement session. Marli selected the perfect location to compliment the color scheme chosen for the upcoming wedding. I had a blast working with this stunning couple and looking forward to their wedding later this year.
Ryno and Sarah tied the knot at Kleinbergskloof Olive Estate in Stilbaai, the perfect venue for this elegant couple. The decor was absolutely stunning, classic black and white simplicity with hints of olive green and gold. It was such an absolute honour to share in this blessed event.

Max and Erin got married in Italy, an intimate celebration with Max’s close family and friends. They decided on a second celebration in South Africa with both of their closest family and friends. It was a beautiful ceremony at De Vette Mossel, literally tying the knot. The light was absolutely gorgeous and I loved working with this gorgeous young couple. Best wishes to you as a couple. May you have a blessed union and a prosperous future.
The most amazing sun filled day in the midst of winter, what more can a couple ask for. Congratulations dear Heinz and Lara, may your union be blessed!

After our meeting to discuss the wedding we had a quick pre-wedding portrait session at the beach. Heinz, like so many other men, dreaded the camera being pointed at him. Well done Heinz, you were a star. I am looking forward to capture their wedding, Lara is going to be a stunning bride!
John and Sophie got married the week before in England celebrating with their British family and friends. How sweet to have a second celebration with their South African family and I had the privilege to capture a part of this beautiful event. I am truly blessed with my work, capturing such beautiful memories and meeting so many awesome people. Dear Estia, thank you for asking me to be part of this day. I do hope to see you all again.

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!
The perfect weather for a late morning beach wedding. Neville and Iona decided to officially tie the knot at De Vette Mossel after being together already for a long time. It was a very small, intimate celebration, just perfect! I loved everything about this celebration, the venue, perfect weather and the best of all was the awesome people I got to meet and work with. Congratulations! Hope you have a blessed road ahead!
