CHANTEL & JON | cullinan e-sessionNovember 1, 2012

posted in E-shoots

Chantel and Jon were so much fun to work with – they are such a lovely & creative couple! I loved Chantel’s idea of an engagement photoshoot inspired by the movie, The Notebook. We decided on Cullinan in Gauteng as the location for their e-session. This was the perfect location with all the old buildings. train tracks and vintage shops. They both dressed the part and Chantel even brought along some of their love letters that’s she’s kept throughout the years!

Here’s Chantel’s version of how they met:

Jon and I were in the same primary school, but it wasn’t until we were in the same class in Grade 4 that we became friends.

We immediately started talking, so much so that our Teacher had to change our seating plans! I was secretly crazy about him, especially when we were in Grade 7 – he was my biggest school crush. 🙂

After Primary school we parted ways and saw each other for the first time in 4 years on an event night at Jono’s school. We never lost contact after that and the rest was, as they say, history. We started dating straight after.

This year on my birthday Jono proposed after 5 years of dating, on an amazing horse riding experience!

Such an adorable story!
I can’t wait for these high school sweethearts’ wedding next year at the stunning Avianto in Muldersdrift!
