Charlton & Mandy | Groenrivier, Riebeeck Wes

Charlton is my husband’s colleague (and friend :)) and I first met him at the Cape Town branch of Endress & Hauser (the company my husband works for) probably at one of the business functions at Oom Deon’s house. I then met Mandy at a year end function probably a few years ago. I was so happy when they got engaged and I received an email from Mandy about their wedding. Exciting times! The day arrived and it was so happy indeed. I loved the intimate ceremony and the love that allView full post »

Jan-Hendrik & Chrissie-Ann | Cabrieres, Montagu

The day of Jan-Hendrik and Chrissie-ann’s wedding was a long day. We were awoken at 6am by Dirk’s parents (Jan-Hendrik is my husband Dirk’s brother) who told us that we had to evacuate the farm as the rain was causing potential river flooding. Obviously my parents-in-law were worried about me because I had to take the photos so it was quite important to get me off the farm with Dirk, who was also the best man. Some of you will clearly remember this weekend as being stormy andView full post »

D.G & Juanri | Tanglewood, Wellington

It was such a incredibly blessed day for D.G and Juanri! If you have been following my photography for a while you would know that I ran a competition in April of this year where I wanted to bless a couple by photographing their wedding. The entrants had to write their stories of how they met but there were also other questions they had to answer. When I read their story and saw their happy smiling faces in the photo they sent with their entry I just knew. I told my husband – “weView full post »

Werner & Megan | Cabrieres, Montagu

What a beautiful day in Montagu it was on Werner and Megan’s wedding day! I was so thankful to be able to take photos for them Thanks to Tena my cousin, who was a bridesmaid, Megan heard of my photography. My husband and I also got married at Cabrieres three years ago and it was so good to be back there. Megan reminds me of a old hollywood beauty – classy and timeless. Together as a couple – they were amazing to photograph! They are so kind and two genuinely lovely people. ItView full post »

Jan & Stephanie | Grootbos, Gansbaai

Jan & Stephanie fell in love with Grootbos when they visited South Africa in 2011. At that time they had been dating for 5 years. Stephanie contacted me in April this year saying that they were going to get married in October. I was so excited to receive the email and even more so when they booked me! In total there were 7 people at the wedding – close friends and family. It was intimate and really amazing! After the register signing in the Champagne Bar at the lodge, we all droveView full post »

Wynand & Ilouise | Eureka, Durbanville

One thing that truly stood out for me about Wynand & Ilouise’s wedding was their family. Seeing her and his parents and how much they love and care for each other is amazing. Their parents have been such wonderful examples and I know that Wynand & Ilouise will have a blessed and very happy marriage.  I just see utter contentment and joy between these two – the photos speak for themselves I believe Blessings vir julle. Wat ‘n voorreg om deel te kon wees van julleView full post »

Jan-Hendrik & Chrissie-Ann | Oude Muur, Montagu

Let me introduce you to my brother-in-law and his stunning bride-to-be Chrissie-Ann! They met when they were both in high school and started dating in 2009. Ever since then they have been inseparable. Just before they got engaged I kept teasing Jan-Hendrik that he was now at the age where he should pop the question and he kept brushing it off. Meanwhile he was planning his proposal! I was at a friends house when I received a phonecall from a very excited Chrissie-Ann – they were engaged!View full post »

Blossom Styled Bridal Shoot | Oude Muur, Montagu

I must apologize for the delay regarding this shoot because my editing was delayed due to my wisdom teeth being extracted. The medication caused nausea as well as drowsiness and shockingly depression as well – it was quite a drama. I had been thinking about doing a styled shoot for quite some time but never really had enough courage to plan one. When I do something, I want to do it right because I am to a certain degree a perfectionist. I had imagined a apricot orchard filled withView full post »

Matthew & Tessa | The Wild Fig, Cape Town

I first met Tessa very randomly when I was in Canal Walk with my husband Dirk. Tessa was with Carianne, who I too am friends with Carianne must have been marketing my wedding photography because not too soon after meeting Tessa I recieved an email from her saying she was engaged and getting married! Matthew had proposed to her the same day we had met I was so excited and even more so when Tessa wanted me to photograph her wedding! Now August has been labelled as the wettest month of the yearView full post »
