Stellenbosch Wedding – Theo & Danielle

Finally, here it is, the last wedding I did for 2014. This Stellenbosch wedding was very special. I know Theo from my home town and when he asked me to shoot their small intimate wedding I just  couldn't say no. The wedding was on Danielle's family farm outside Stellenbosch and according to them, it is here that the very first Pinotage wine was made! And judging by how the wine tasted at the picnic, it was pretty damn awesome! This was a small wedding with a picnic on the grass afterwards under the old oak trees. All the couples got a picnic basket filled with snacks and sparkling wine and it was just chilled. Not only is there some history to the farm, the dress that Danielle wore was her grandmothers dress!! Yes! 75years old, and they got married on exactly the same farm! Man that is special. She did do some modifications to the dress but 90% of it was still the same. I took a photo of her holding her gran's wedding photo with the same dress. Well, here you go, go check it out and please feel free to leave a comment or to share it with everyone!

Rawsonville Wedding – Ben-Herman & Adri

This was my second last wedding for 2014! Man the time flew by, 2014 is basically just a blur. Well this was a good one for the second last wedding of 2014. A Rawsonville wedding is always special, especially of it is at a stunning venue like Die Eike! Ben-Herman and Adri chose this stunning wedding and got married under the massive old Oak trees. The setting was just perfect. And while I was shooting the ceremony, I could see this was going to be a great crowd! The band they had was simply amazing! It was one of the weddings with the best entertainment I have ever been to! Simply outstanding! Well, lets get on with the images. Please feel free to like, comment and share with friends!

Lourensford Estate Engagement Shoot – Dewald & Denise

It is not often you get to do a shoot with a person who has the same name as you, especially with the name Dewald. Dewald and Denise wanted to do a Lourensford Estate Engagement shoot. So one afternoon after work we went through to Somerset West to do their shoot at the ever stunning Lourensford Estate in Somerset West. We shot everywhere, from the garden to the Pear Orchard. Have a look and let me know what you guys think ;)  

Family Photoshoot – Härle Family – Wolseley

I have know Ralf for some time as he used to be one of my clients from way back when I was still in the plumbing industry. So when he asked me to to do a Family Photoshoot for him I obviously said yes! We did the shoot on their family farm outside Wolseley and it was just stunning! They have this magic Natural Oak Forest there that made for the most amazing images. The light, the mood and everything was just amazing. Ilse also asked me if I could photograph some of her horses for her, man these animals are just amazing! And I got one of my favourite horse photos yet. Right, go and check it out and let me know what you think guys, and please feel free to share with family and friends.  

Cape Town Trash the Dress Shoot – Brazillian Flair with Gabrielly & Mauricio

At the beginnig of November I got an email from a lady all the way from Brazil! She found me via google(guess the hard work of SEO is working;)) and she was looking to do a Trash The Dress shoot while she and her new husband was in Cape Town on Honeymoon! Well obviously I was very keen for it as I just love doing Trash the Dress shoots! So I replied and then I did not hear from her again for a couple of weeks, infact, the day right BEFORE the shoot, which was also their last full day in Cape Town! So after a lengthy conversation on Whatsapp, we decided on Cape Town CBD, it was close to their hotel and then Blouberg Beach with the backdrop of Table Mountain and the sea. When you are used to lush tropical beaches of a country like Brazil, the freezing water of Cape Town will surely be a shock to your system, hell we hardly even swim in it! But with out keeping you guys to long, here is the images. Please feel free to leave a comment or share it with your friends.
