So many sweet pics of this gorgeous girlie and her mum and dad from our shoot last week! Love love love the calm winter colours, grey reeds and water reflections. Here’s a little sneak peek :-)

I just couldn’t choose between these two for a sneak peek… Tanya and Mark loving EVERY minute of their wonderful day!

Oh my faint heart, we’ve had some incredible light this season!! Gorgeous Andrea and Alex’s sneak peek…

My GORGEOUS friend Yolande from ‘Yolande du Toit Professional Make Up Artist and Hair Stylist‘ and her beautiful family spent an afternoon out here in sunny Elgin. Her little ones were exceptional models (you know it Yolande!! :-D) and forests and fields made for wonderfully textured backdrops for their shoot! I’m so glad we managed to find some time for their lovely family photos before wedding season really gets underway :-) Enjoy the spring light, happy pics and gorgeous Fleur le Cordeur flower crown…

I’ve been trying to think of some witty connection between the Cape Epic and how epic this wedding was seeing as Oak Valley (Amy’s home) is one of the major points of the famous cycle race ;-) Suffice to say that Amy and Gray’s exquisite celebration was truly a day to remember for years to come. These two are such a special couple and more than a few happy tears were shed throughout the ceremony and especially during Gray’s moving speech… Phew, I’m getting teary eyed! Amy is a co-ordinator herself (part of the very talented team at Nineteen Eighty Five!) and crafted the whole day from start to finish with the help of such a wonderful crew – Agape Wedding and Event Design, Nineteen Eighty Five, the whole team at the Pool Room and ahhhh just too many others to mention here but do have a look at the bottom of the post. What a magnificent wedding these two lovebirds had… Enjoy the photos…

I was assisted by the lovely Tanya Viljoen and I was lucky enough to have a phenomenal second shooter as well. Many thanks to Michelle Joubert-Martin Photography for such great work.

There was a white dress… and some jewel coloured paint powder… two days after the wedding… and here’s the story… :-D :-D :-D Disclaimer: This is not actually the real dress if you’re having a heart attack right now!! Leanne and Cameron, you guys were SUCH fun and so brave and I LOVE these photos so much!!!

These two seriously gorgeous lovebirds are getting married in December and we spent a few hours out on the Almenkerk wine estate farm photographing their beautiful Lovebirds engagement shoot. What a stunning afternoon and what a great chance to get them used to being in front of the camera before the big day :-D Andrea and Alex, December is on it’s way!

These two sisters have the most special bond… Even though they live in different countries and continents it’s clear to see their amazing friendship and to know that the distance makes no difference whatsoever to these two :-D Debra and Kenda are the most wonderful girls to spend time with and I’m so thrilled they came up with the idea of a Sisters shoot while Kenda was out visiting earlier this year – it meant a whole afternoon of girly chatter and the most fun, relaxed shoot in ages :-D Thank you so much to the extremely talented Yolande du Toit for the beautiful hair and make-up!

A little sneak peek from yesterday’s gorgeous sisters shoot! Such a special idea…

Have you been to the Christmas market at Gabrielskloof here in the beautiful Overberg? ‘Our Favourite Things‘ market is the most wonderful way to spend a summer’s afternoon! Wine, paella, crafts, happy wanderers, oysters, more wine, wafts of delicious food cooking and… more wine ;-) Plus some goats, so you really just have to go!! If you felt the hole in your life after Kamers finished in November, here’s your next hit!

So yet another perk of living in lovely Elgin is that I stay pretty much right next door to the wonderful Pool Room which is seriously awesome as not only do they have a great restaurant but they make ciabatta’s to die for, sell fantastic wines, acorn-fed pork, ham, flowers etc etc etc… I could go on for a while ;-) What I actually wanted to talk about was how this was all a backdrop for Mariana and Laurence’s lovely day. As they’ve been together for 10 years they didn’t call it a wedding, but rather a commitment ceremony – that’s really wonderful! They were joined by just their closest friends, their children and grandchildren (even Mariana’s jeweller daughter Lisa made the rings!) and sat down to champagne-filled lunch under the oak trees afterwards.

These are our lovely friends (and awesome landlords!) – the Bruwer family :-D After some rained out dates we finally managed to reschedule our shoot and what a gorgeous ‘sunlight through the trees’ afternoon we got! Elgin is just so beautiful and chock full of sticks and stones and acorns and flowers – perfect for keeping kiddies amused while I click away :-) That being said these two are some of the most natural kids in front of the camera that I’ve ever photographed!! Enjoy the photos. Assisted by the lovely and helpful Charne Strauss

Do you remember Tanya’s maternity shoot on a cloudy Betty’s Bay beach? Can you believe that was over two years ago and today we’re sharing her family shoot with little Cullan running around and beaming for the camera??!! I just dropped my youngest daughter off at ‘big school’ for the first time and I’m really appreciating the bittersweet moments of watching these precious kiddies grow up… Enjoy the photos :-)
