Alyson and David

I met up with Alyson and David a few weeks before their wedding day and I was taken by how excited they were about it! David did such an amazing job taking over alot of the planning and arranging special surprises while Alyson added the feminine touches to the day.

On the day of the wedding everything fell into place beautifully. Both were surrounded by their kids as they got ready. I spent some time with Alyson and the girls and they were filled with excitement and some nerves.

Tears filled many eyes as Alyson walked down the aisle to meet David, it was such a lovely moment and one that they had been waiting for for so long. The rest of the day was just as special with the couples friends and family sharing special moments with them.

I loved their first dance and how they looked at each other during this time, it was as if there was nobody else in the room!

Thank you both for trusting me with your memories, I had such a lovely time getting to know you both a little. I wish you so so much happiness together for always.

Michelle and Rudi

A chef and an avid fisherman met and fell in love and were married at Welgelee in Stellenbosch! This is Michelle and Rudi’s story.

The couple chose simple decor with an elegant touch, it was a perfect fit for them both. Michelle’s beautiful ballgown added a romantic feel to the look of the day. Rudi’s eyes filled with tears as she walked down the aisle towards him, it was such a sweet moment. Their vows were heartfelt and the sincerity of their love was so obvious.

Their guests enjoyed canapes under the hanging vines while we went off for photos. We caught some stunning light which produced lovely soft images.

I loved spending time with this couple on their wedding day, it reminded me what real love is about. Being there for one another and showing support always. Thank you both for having me share your day with you.

Michelle and Eben

Michelle and Eben were married in an intimate ceremony on a March morning at Hartenberg Wines. It was such a special ceremony, Michelle’s daughter sang as she walked down the aisle and her son was by her side. Eben’s son was with him at the alter and all other family and friends were close by to witness their vows. Eben put in so much work making all the hearts that were hanging from the trees around them, Michelle hadn’t even seen some of them until she arrived!

After the couple had said “I Do”, all the guests were treated to a delicious picnic lunch under an oak tree along with wine and laughter. It was so wonderfully relaxed and I know that is just what Michelle and Eben wanted.

Congratulations to you and your new (bigger) family :) I wish you so so much love and happiness now and for always.

Love In Colour

I am so happy to share these images, they really do make me smile. I love doing styled shoots, they are stressful and take a lot of work by all involved, but the results are so worth it.

Thank you to Rockhaven in Elgin who so kindly hosted us for the day. We had a cold and overcast start to the day but it all worked out just perfectly!

I wanted to create something romantic and not too structured and I think everyone pulled together to do just that.

I hope you enjoy these images and find some inspiration for pretty things you are creating in your life.

 

Thank you to this amazing team!

Kudzai and Joakim

Kudzai and Joakim traveled all the way to Cape Town to say I Do and chose Blue Horizon Estate as their wedding venue. Kudzai is originally from South Africa but moved to Sweden with her parents years ago and that is where she met her prince and fell in love. They journeyed back to share their special day with friends and family.

The ceremony started off with THE most amazing groom’s entrance I have ever seen!! Joakim and his groomsmen skipped down the aisle in the most fancy fashion! This couple both have wonderfully quirky personalities and they didn’t lose that at all during their wedding day. They exchanged vows in front of an ocean view capped off by a gorgeous floral arch. Just as they exchanged their first kiss a little rain started to fall, a perfectly timed blessing.

I spent some time with the bridal party having loads of laughs and at times struggling to get them to focus on the camera!! They were all just so full of fun so making jokes came easily. I then took the couple off for a few couple portraits. I absolutely loved Kudzai’s flower crown and how the rich colours complimented her skin tone. Joakim was only too happy to hold her close and kiss her (in between some laughs of course!)

The reception was colourful and alot of fun! From the couples entrance and first dance to Kudzai’s dance with her father it was fun all the way. Kudzai and her girls changed into different outfits during the evening and treated the guests to more wonderful dancing!! It was so awesome to see Kudzai’s local friends and family welcoming the overseas guests with such open arms. Grabbing them onto the dance floor and making sure every one was part of the fun.

As you two travel through life together, I hope you keep the uniqueness and fun in your relationship. Thank you so much for having me be part of this most special day, I wish you nothing but love and happiness now and forever.

McPherson Family

Claudia and I went to school together so I was very excited when she contacted me to do a family shoot for her, her husband and son.

After dodging bad weather for a few weeks, we met up on a perfect summer day at Kirstenbosch Gardens. Callum is such a lovely child, so polite and full of smiles. They are a hugging family which I love :)

Thank you for having me capture these memories for you, I love them and I hope they find a perfect spot in your new home.

Kate and Rikus’ Engagement

I was very excited when Kate contacted me and asked if she could book a couples’ shoot and bring their doggies along. I love furbabies!!

We met up at Majik Forest and I got to meet the two sweetest Boston Terriers. They are Kate and Rikus’s babies and they get so much love. It was lots of fun having them along and they were so well behaved. Kate’s mom was close at hand with sausage treats just in case!

Kate and Rikus, it was so wonderful to meet you and your little family, thanks for a fun afternoon :)

Baby Adriana

I was given the honor of capturing the birth of a precious miracle, little baby Adriana. I met with Candy-Lee and Sergio the week before their due date and they were so excited and anxious for the birth of their second daughter. When I arrived at the hospital on the day of the delivery, Candy-Lee was as calm as could be and was just counting down the minutes until the nurses came to take her to theater. I followed them down to the pre-op area and then into the theater, it was all very surreal. Sergio was beside Candy-Lee every step of the way and held her hand through it all. I have never seen a man smile as widely as what Sergio did when they lifted Adriana over the sheet for the first time. She cried so strongly and Mom and Dad (and I!) were overcome with emotion.

I don’t think I can explain the feeling this experience left me with, but I am so so grateful that I got to see it at least once in my lifetime (and I hope for many more).

Congratulations to you Candy-Lee, Sergio and big sister Leteia. She is a perfect little angel.
