James & Christel – 18/07/2015 – Houw Hoek Inn

The day before James & Christel’s wedding, Cape Town’s winter weather was at its best. But I never stress about the weather. And their wedding day turned out to be amazing. Houw Hoek Inn is set between the most beautiful mountains close to Grabouw. Perfect for a cosy winter wedding.

Their story: They met in 2006 at church, and after that they remained close friends while Christel was working overseas. Christel says she has always admired the way James treats everyone with respect, and she knew that he would treat her with respect. Fast forward a few years, including 6 months of dating; James sent Christel on a treasure hunt – and at the end she found him on one knee ;) 

Stories like theirs inspire me; they waited and prayed a long time for each other – and to top it all off – their first kiss was at the altar :)

Roux & Roché – 27/06/2015 – Ashanti

Wat ‘n asemrowende mooi troue! Dit was vir my ‘n absolute eer gewees om Roux en Roché se trou fotos te neem.

Meer oor die pragtige couple: Hulle is albei van die Paarl, maar hulle het vir die eerste keer ontmoet by ‘n huisdans in hulle finale jaar van Universiteit. Van daar af het hulle net ‘ge-click’. 31 Maande later(waarvan Roché 3 maande in Australië was) het Roux besluit om die ‘groot vraag’ te vra. Dit was ‘n groot verrassing vir Roché, want hulle het gaan piekniek hou by ‘n plekkie waar hulle gereeld spesiale tye vier.

Roché se raad aan paartjies wat hulle troue beplan- Betrek die bruidegrom; hy mag jou dalk ver verras met sy idees ;)

Eden

 In Hebrew the meaning of the name Eden is: Delight.

Little Eden is such cute little girl. Aimee and Stefan are truly awesome parents to their 2 beautiful children. Jack being the oldest, loves his little sister to bits.

During the shoot, Eden was at her happiest in her mommy or daddy’s arms, but luckily I got some pretty photos of her on her own. She’s already a little drama queen ;)

Aimee and Stefan, thank you for your friendship; may your beautiful girl bring you just as much joy as her big brother Jack. Thank you for the beautiful example you set of raising children in a Godly way.
