I’m so excited to share another happy-ever-after story of one of my past wedding couples! Chantel & Jon’s engagement session & wedding are some of my favourite photography moments and last weekend I shared another amazing moment in their lives with them: their maternity photoshoot. This lovely couple is expecting their baby boy’s arrival early next year.

We did their photoshoot at Delta Park in Victory Park, Johannesburg. Here are some of my favourites from their maternity photoshoot.

On Saturday, the 8th of October 2016, Ashley had her bridal shower at the beautiful Elno Art in Raslouw, Pretoria. The theme was chic with pinks, blacks and whites and floral elements. Elno Art did an amazing job with the catering and I simply adore the art work in the background of all the photos. It was a wonderful day to be a part of filled with laughter and loads of excitement for the future wedding day!

MESSAGELANE BY SARAH |fashion session in johannesburgJune 8, 2015

In 2013 I covered a very memorable engagement photoshoot with Sarah & Luke – I was thrilled when (happily married now) Sarah contacted me to take some shots of her amazing & unique fashion line. I am stunned by how dreamy and gorgeous all these outfits are!

Sarah: “MessageLane is my clothing brain child established on my religious convictions. My love for easy and trendy dressing options and the lack thereof in stores has been the driving force behind MessageLane. The brand caters exclusively to modest dressing ladies and is entirely focused on making modest clothing more accessible and current.”

MR & MRS COETZEE |avianto muldersdrift weddingJune 26, 2013

Chantel & Johny finally tied the knot on the 28th of April 2013 at the luxurious Avianto Estate in Muldersdrift. I just love these two – they look SO great together (it’s like they were made to be in front of the camera) and they are genuinely nice, kind-hearted people. Their The Notebook inspired engagement session in Cullinan, Gauteng last year was probably my favourite engagement session of all time and I knew their wedding day would be special in more ways than I could ever imagine. (Click here to view their Cullinan The Notebook inspired Engagement Session.)

 Elegant Avianto Muldersdrift Wedding Johannesburg Izelle Labuschagne Photography These PRIMARY school sweethearts planned an unforgettable wedding day, filled with beautiful creative DIY elements, stunning elegance and the most lovely heartfelt moments – Johny even sang a song he wrote especially for his bride during his speech!
Not to mention their wedding attire – Chantel’s dress & Johny’s suit was a dream to photograph and we were spoiled with the most lovely sunlight during their couple session; of course Avianto‘s gardens and scenery also never fails to impress.

Can you tell me about your inspiration – how did you do things differently?
