Industrial Coffee Works in Centurion has become a very popular location for photo shoots and it's not difficult to see why. The industrial feel and warm atmosphere this coffee shop offer bring so much life and mood into images, especially if your couple is as gorgeous as Bevan & Gina.
I did their engagement shoot at the beginning of the year and I must say, it remains a favourite of mine! The connection these two share are incredible and almost touchable in every image.

Simply can not wait for their wedding coming up in September at the lovely Lace on Timber!

Sometimes industry friends become more like 'heart friends' and this is exactly what happened to myself and Nadia, from Creative Heroes . What started off as a casual industry related friendship blossomed into the most wonderful and treasured relationship that I am truly thankful for. 

It was such a great honour to capture this very special time in Leandro & Nadia's lives. I just love the natural and intimate feel of their maternity shoot, something I always strive to capture in my sessions. 

 Their little baby boy, Lee was born on the 18th of May and you can keep your eyes on the blog for his newborn session that I will be sharing as well.

I have been wanting to blog this wedding since the day I shot it and today is finally the day I get to share this special wedding with the world.

Armand & Nadine tied the knot end of November 2016 at The Nutcracker Country Retreat near Parys in the Free-State. I have been to this venue numerous times, but each and every time I am pleasantly surprised by the photographic opportunities and amazing food the venue has to offer. This time it was no different, except this time I had a very exceptional  couple in front of my camera... You might remember them from their vintage inspired engagement shoot I did a while back, view it here . But to me, they are special friends.

It's such a privilege to document old school fiends' weddings. You get to witness them grow-up and become a true gentlemen or lady and best of all, you get to witness them find true love! This is something I truly treasure!

Armand & Nadine, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day! You are amazing together and I wish you many years of joy and happiness! Enjoy this journey as husband and wife.
Lots of Love

Lindie is a dear friend from high school, she is a woman with a heart of gold that loves Jesus and that owns a beauty coming from within! Now she found the one man that was made for her, Gerrit! What a privilege to have them as clients, to capture the beautiful love they share and to be part of such an incredibly special time in their lives.  

Their engagement shoot is a favourite, not only due to the super cool venue and their incredible style but more so because they are deeply in love and not afraid to show it! They did not worry about 'how the images will look',  they only focused on one another and being just them! The perfect ingredients for any successful shoot!

Gerrit & Lindie will be tying the knot in April at Lace on Timer. Super excited to have them in front of my camera again!

Hope you enjoy their images as much as I do!
Lots of Love

Raymond & Melissa are getting married later this year at Lace on Timber.

Here are a few of my favourites from their session.

I photographed this handsome little man, Luke last year when he was just a few days old. The natural way I captured him and his brand new parents is what my lifestyle newborn sessions is all about. Embracing the love, beauty and sometimes funny moments new life brings along. 
It's all about capturing the baby within his/her natural environment in a way they feel comfortable and happy.

Enjoy the cuteness of this beautiful baby boy!!
Lots of Love

December 2016 I had the amazing opportunity to do this early morning beach maternity shoot for Barry & Anika. We met just before sunrise and I couldn't be happier with the way everything came out. We had the most stunning light as the sun came up over the ocean and then a thin layer of clouds covered the sky, creating a soft blanket of diffused light for the duration of our shoot. The colours, light and surroundings worked in perfect harmony! A great tip is to always wear garments that compliment your bodies, each other and the location!!

This was my first beach maternity shoot and definitely not the last one...!! So let me know if your up for a shoot on the beach!!
Hope you enjoy the preview of my favourites.
Lots of Love

I was thrilled to be back at Riversong venue for Stefan & Lizélda's wedding. The clean air, river views and casual atmosphere this venue offer is a breath of fresh air. No wonder these two travelled all the way from Nelspruit to celebrate their wedding next to the Vaal River.

Their wedding was full of colour, interesting details, floral prints and love! They created a whimsical, yet relaxed environment where guests could have a drink, enjoy a snack and embrace the beautiful views of the Free State.

Stefan & Lizélda, thanks so much for trusting us to capture your wedding day and for being such wonderful clients! May your marriage be blessed and filled with many years of joy!
Lots of Love xxx

Although 2017 is on a roll and the end of January is almost here, it's time to show you some of the beauty end of 2016 brought with the wedding of Jason & Hanné. This lovely couple tied the knot at Lavender Hill just outside Bethlehem, Free State.

Hanné had a two-way wedding dress which I loved and their day was celebrated with hues of blue, crystals and greenery. The magnificent Free State did bring some stormy weather and brownish skies, but we all celebrate the rain after the very dry season, plus the images it produced was something amazing.

It was also the first time I had to photograph the groom on a drip! Photographing weddings can sometimes be a bumpy road.
Hope you enjoy this destination wedding!

Jason & Hanné, thanks so much for a lovely weekend and for making us feel right at home! I wish you all the best for your marriage and your future as husband and wife! Enjoy the journey together.  Lots of Love xxx
