Portfolio Shoot – Whimsical light and dreams – Elsa Bleda

Hallo everyone, this is a shoot that I have not published yet and it was done more than 6 months ago! We went to visit our in-laws in Sasolburg in the Freestate and I met up with a local, very inspiring photographer, Ilse Moore. She does the most amazing under water photography. Here is a LINK to her site. She arranged with a local model that has been featured in loads of her shoots to come and join us for a fun shoot the afternoon. We wanted to do the shoot in an old factory, but due to last minute problems, we had to change location and we did it at an old ice rink that is now a restaurant and bar. The actual Ice section has been replaced with sand to for a "beach" and we had a perfect setting sun shine in the main door which gave it this amazing red glow. Added the dust and Elsa;s amazing performance, this shoot came out better than we ever thought! Please feel free to leave a comment here on the blog, Hope to be hearing from you guys soon.

Portfolio Shoot – Male models – Carlo & Lourens

I had the joy of doing a portfolio shoot for these two strapping young lads a couple of weeks ago. We had the mother of thunderstorms that afternoon and I just had to use it, so we all got soaking wet shooting in the rain. Please feel free to like, comment or share the images.

Kliplapa Wedding – Robertson – Herko & Erika

Here it is finally, the wedding of Herko and Erika, my last wedding for 2013! This stunning wedding was held at Kliplapa Wedding venue in Robertson. Fun couples always make stunning images, who can remember the classic shot of Herko and Erika in the ocean on Blouberg beach? People who are comfortable with each other just have a different chemistry when you photograph them. The one highlight of the wedding was the bouquet and garter toss, or rather give. They did not do the traditional thing, instead they played musical chairs and what fun that was! To be honest, the girls where worse than the guys when it came to cheating hahahahaha, but all good fun! I hope you guys enjoy the album and please feel free to leave a comment, like or share.

Rawsonville wedding – Andries and Minette

Andries and Minette got married on most probably the busiest wedding date in 2013, 14 December. The reception was held at the Eike saal and I did their lovely couple shoot at Die Eike Guesthouse & Venues in Rawsonville. They are such a stunning couple and sooo easy to work with. No matter what I said they just did it and did it perfectly. Here is some images from the wedding. If you are in one of the images, please tag yourself and others you know so that everyone can see it. I am looking forward to reading all the comments!

Murasie Wedding Venue – Gansbaai – Wynand & Anmarie

I finally get to upload this stunning wedding! I shot this wedidng at the stunning Murasie wedding venue in Gansbaai in the beginning of December. Let me start at the beginning, last year some of you might remember the wedding of Arian and Riani that I photographed in George. Well, Wynand is teh brother of Arian and Anmari is the sister of Riani...so now they are not sure if they are in-laws or blood family LOL. I think its pretty cool this way. The day started out very windy and it was also pretty hot that day as well. There was some fine clouds in the sky and later that afternoon it had cooled down quite a bit and those clouds has turned into heavy thunder clouds. We where treated with the most awesome sunset that night! The ceremony part of the wedding was held under a huge old oak tree and it was just stunning, I loved the whole feel of the venue, rustic and relaxing. So, please feel free to like, comment and share any of the photos and I am looking forward to reading them all!

Engagement Shoot Swellendam – Zahn-Mari & David

What a fun couple! Both of them live in the UK and when they recently came down to SA to sort out some of the final wedding arrangements, we just had to squeeze in their  Swellendam engagement shoot. And what a better place than to do it on their family farm between Swellendam and Heidelberg. With the wheat fields looking so stunning I could not resist shooting in it. We had a gale force wind on the day as well, but what can one do, you cant postpone the shoot, but in the end it worked out great. I am super excited about their wedding next year! Feel free to comment, like and share the images. Want to see more, please follow THIS LINK


Olivae Wedding – Worcester – Jaco & Magdelle

Now THIS was a fun wedding! Man I should have known after we did Jaco and Magdelle's engagement shoot, remember, the one with the paint, that this was going to be an epic party. The wedding was held at the Olivae Olive Estate just outside Worcester. We did this wedding a bit wrong way round, but it worked so well that I would actually recommend it to future brides. We did the couple shoot BEFORE the ceremony, so we had enough time to get awesome shots and straight after the church service the couple could party with their friends. 2 days before the wedding we had a huge cold front hit us and it left a blanket of snow on the high mountains. We just had to make plan to work that into the images, and man, did it work well. Oh and to top of the party was Jaco's old band, Baarmoeder Gevoel, all there, and what better way to celebrate than with a couple of awesome tunes from the band! Like the one member said at the bar, "tonight we had a gig with a wedding on the side"! AWESOME! Feel free to like, comment and especially share this album with your friends.

Model Portfolio Matric Farewell Photoshoot – Matjiesfontein – Anja

Shooting a Model Portfolio is one of my favourite type of shoots to do, and when Anja said she wants to add her matric farewell images to her portfolio we just had to do it proper. Anja had the most stunning dress made by Kobus Dippenaar Atelier. She wanted something different for her matric dance shoot and we decided to shoot it a week earlier in the stunning little town of Matjiesfontein. It is still one of my favourite places to shoot and the dress just fitted in perfectly with this historical town. Feel free to comment, like and best of all SHARE.
