Gerda and her Husband is having their 11th year anniversary end of September. When she messaged me, she had two requests. It has to be a surprise photo for her husband and it had to portray the following words: "11 years together and the spark's still there!"
So we set off and made some sparks!
Something a little different from what I usually do, but she had a specific look in mind and I really enjoyed playing around to get her exactly what she wanted.

All little girls want is to have fun! And Dress-up!
Specially if they can dress up as a beautiful ballerina or play bride in their mother's wedding dress. That is exactly what we did with this styled shoot for Leah. She was so excited to take some photos. It was an absolute blessing to have her in front of my lens :)

" Family: where life begins and love never ends "

I had so much fun doing the Victor family's shoot this past December when they were here on holiday. The wind was a bit silly and kept blowing our hair in our faces but in the end we had so much fun. Little Karli was a bit camera shy at first but later on she and her sister Inke was such cute models, it was almost hard to stop photographing them. Inke was full of surprises on what must be done for the perfect photo pose, from being swung around and round, to being thrown up high into the sky.

It was truly a blessing to see the love and happiness this family share with each other. May your love for each other continue to grow and the happiness continue to sparkle in your little angels eyes.

This December I had the absolute pleasure to photoshoot my beautiful assistant, Suzette Coetzer, and her family.
Its so beautiful when you see two children love their mother this much and how that same love blossom in their own relationships with their spouses. Mamma Ann you may be very proud of Annike and Roddie.
In between the family photos I had so much fun with the lovely couples present.
Annika and Jean-Pierre were recently married and the honeymoon twinkle still lingered deep in their eyes.
Suzette and Roddie will be married this year and the excitement of their future together is there for all to see.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to meet you all, may your love for each other shine forever more.

This was one of those weddings when you look back on it you can only say "wow... that was special!"
Christo & Monique said their special I do's at Seeplaas and their reception at De Vette Mossel Grootbrak.
We did Christo's shoot in the hangers of the helicopter that was used to take their guests for helicopter flips, what a treat that was!
Monique is probably one of the happiest, most bubbly brides I've met in a while, and when these come together it is a big blast of fun.
It was an absolute pleasure to be able to share their happiness with them. May you live happily, lovingly together forever!

Yani and Ruan got married at the beautiful Oppi Plaas.
At the start it was a very cold and rainy day. The ceremony was moved to be held inside the venue but not even the rain could put a damper on this beautiful brides face. We were truly blessed when the rain stopped just in time for the photos to be taken.
Spring also provided us with beautiful blossoms to make this day even more beautiful.
This was one of the first weddings we did after Michelle's maternity leave and what a beautiful wedding it was.
