What a fun engagement shoot! I really enjoyed it and had good laughs with the comical and sweet Connie. She and Alfred tie the knot in April in Namibia. Dit was so lekker gewees en ek wens julle so baie geluk vir julle huwelikspad. Geniet die fotos! xx

Juan or Jonty as his friends know him is one of my husband Dirk’s oldest friends. I first got to know Jonty in 2008, when he was single. I always thought he was a kind person and I thought he should totally have a girlfriend because he is such a genuinely sweet guy! He then started dating Elizma a few years later and I met her last year. They are exceptionally well suited because they are just super sweet people! They are so in love and besotted with each other – so sweet to capture them! I am so honoured to be their wedding photographer!! Geniet die fotos en sien so uit! Now it is holiday time for Dirk and myself – eeeeee! We are so excited xx
My dear friends Natalie and Carl are going to get married on the 23rd of November. Myself and my husband unfortunately cannot make it as we are attending another wedding and my heart is really sad! I wish I could be at their wedding as well I am so looking forward to seeing their wedding photos though because at least I will be able to see the moments throughout the day. Natalie – you are going to be such a beautiful bride!! Carl – what a gorgeous fiance and sooon-to-be bride you are blessed with. Hope you like the photos xx
Last year I photographed my friends Lauren and Tielman (who are the coolest couple!) and this year I had the honour of being chosen to photograph them again because they are expecting Jonathan – their first child I know that they are going to be amazing Godly parents to him and I am so excited to see them around Jonathan once he arrives to meet us all. Jonathan is so blessed and God is going to be an integral part of His life. Lauren looks so stunning with her bump and she does glow. Enjoy the photos and can’t wait to meet Jonathan!!
Tammy is friends (also collegue) with one of my oldest & dearest friends Elne. Tammy was in search of a wedding photographer when Elne told her to look at my work – the rest is history shall we say since I am their honoured wedding photographer. This lovely couple will be tying the knot in June. They wanted a summer engagement shoot and we got a very hot summers day! Jc proposed to Tammy at the venue where we took the engagement shoot photos – Eikendal. They are a fun, sweet couple and you can almost hear Tammy’s laugh when you look at the photos. Lots of happiness & joy!
I have known Fran for many, many years We met when we were children & I have had the privilege to watch her become the beautiful woman that she is today. Her journey with Matthew started on the day I turned 21. I held a ridiculous 21st birthday party where my guests had to dress up as pop stars because the theme was karaoke - mind you I love singing so I would have another party like that in a heart beat haha! Matthew & Fran started dating at the end of 2007 – the same year that they met & have been inseparable since then. They understand each other and suit each other so well. They are a fun, happy couple & Matthew has been amazing for Fran. She is a lucky girl & of course what a lucky guy Matthew is to have the fabulous Fran! They got engaged on my birthday – it being the day they met so I was so happy when I found out! There was so much planning that went into his proposal plan – he went to so much trouble & even hit a few speed bumps (but hey so many guys do – including my husband & me being the speed bump lol). If I could use one word to describe their story it would be fairy tale - because it truly is and there wedding will be that as well. You guys are so awesome & what a privilege to photograph you two!! Fran chose the location – was amazing! xx
Frank contacted my recently for a couple shoot with his girlfriend who is visiting him from Holland. They are both dutch, both very tall (I was like “wow you are both so tall”) and very tanned They wanted photos in nature and vineyards so I took them to the Jan Marais park first where there were beautiful fynbos flowers in bloom, to Jonkershoek with the lovely Stellenbosch mountain in the background and lastly to Lanzerac for photos amongst the vineyards.
I was very excited when Elzette asked me to photograph Renier & herself + the growing bump David. They are so excited for the birth of their first child! I attend the same church as this lovely couple & one day David will be joining us in church You might recognize this location – Elzette loved the location where I took photos of Tiffany. It really is beautiful there!
