I met Aimee & Thomas for the first time the week before their beautiful wedding to do their engagement session. Their wedding was beyond amazing and I cannot wait to share the photos on the blog next month, but their engagement session was just as stunning. Aimee & Thomas are a perfect pair – the love and compassion they have for each other shows in each photo. Their wedding day was bicycle themed so they organised a vintage bicycle for their engagement session to stick with this theme. Delta Park in Johannesburg with its lovely greenery and faint views of the city’s skyline was the perfect location for their session.

Here’s a short introduction to how their love story begun:

MR & MRS GREEFF |klip river vereeniging weddingJanuary 29, 2014

posted in Real Weddings

Gerhardus & Antoinette said their “I do’s” on the 29th of November 2013 at Klip River, a gorgeous venue in Vereeniging. The venue has so many beautiful photo locations and I would like to thank the staff for being so helpful – they assisted us with every part of the newlywed session and I can with all honesty say I’ve never received so much help from a venue’s staff before. Antoinette & Gerhardus are the perfect match. They go together like bread and butter! Their fun, down-to-earth personalities made the whole day a blast and I loved all the giggles they shared together. Also, I know I always say this, but I LOVED Antoinette’s wedding dress – that heart-shape detail on the back is stunning. They both looked fantastic! I also adore all the unique touches to their wedding day, for example the paper planes that were used for confetti and of course the lovely E. E. Cummings poem that they framed and hung outside the reception venue. It did start raining right after the ceremony, but fortunately it cleared up a bit and we were able to take all the shots we needed outside in Klip River’s magnificent gardens.

I’m beyond excited about this couple’s wedding! They shared so many spontaneous and silly moments together during their couple session at the picturesque Helderfontein Estate in Fourways, Johannesburg – if this was any prediction of how their wedding day will be, I bet it will be very fun! Melissa and Stefan just mesh so well together.

Here’s their love story (sorry non-Afrikaans speaking folk; I’m posting this story in the couple’s own words in their mother tongue):

VAN ZANTENS |botanical gardens family sessionAugust 13, 2013

posted in Family Photoshoots

I generally don’t post non-wedding related photo sessions, but I’ve decided to make an effort to post more of our other work on the blog 🙂 The Van Zanten’s family session really is the ideal start – this was such a happy photo session full of kisses and cute giggles! I met Taryn back in my marketing days – she was one of the nicest people I came across in those days and it was such a joy when she contacted me for a photo session with her awesome little family consisting of Kevin and Leigh.

Leigh is absolutely adorable and even though she was a bit camera-shy in the beginning she eased into the flow of the session pretty quickly. The session started with Leigh’s colourful balloons slipping out of her hands – it almost broke my heart when she lost her balloons BUT fortunately we had some lollipops to take her mind off it! 😉
