ADRI & REIMER – 10.12.2011 – Morgansvlei

 Adri and Reimers wedding was perfect.  Morgansvlei is  a stunning venue, the cloudy sky, with moments of sunshine in between, great for photos and a lovely, lovely couple.  Adri and Reimer, you not only made our work so enjoyable on the day, but were great fun and kept us laughing.   Thank you also to both your families for making us feel like we where part of the family.  May you have endless blessings in you life together.  Alitha & Pinnie :-) .

Baby Schalk – 7 days

I have so much admiration for parents who come to my studio when their babies are so young.  I’m also thankful, because they are great to work with when they are so sleepy.  Schalk was just amazing and I wanted to keep him here all day.

Coetzer family – location

I really love locations shoots, because there are so much more to work with and little children have more freedom than in a studio. The weather is the only factor and on this particular Saturday morning, we had a typical 4 seasons in one day, day. Fortunately for us, it only rained for a couple of minutes and the kids totally enjoyed the dripping rain drops.

Jean-Pierre Uys Workshop

What a privilege to attend a 2 day wedding workshop hosted by the amazing Jean-Pierre Uys .   Lots of information was shared and we had lots of time putting these new ideas into practice, with great models, lighting, beautifull venue (Vrede en Lust) and stunning make-up.  

 Big thank you to Jean-Pierre for sharing so much and for giving me a new perspective on my photography journey.   Chloe, Candice and Cayla  thank you for braving the cold weather and being such great models, also Helga Strydom  for making them look amazing.

 Jean-Pierre posted a video of our 2 days on his blog, beautifully done by Andrew Alexander (see here).

This post is long overdue, since this was a 2010 wedding.  I just somehow never manage to get to blogging this.  I had the wonderful privilege of second shooting 2 weddings (and a Trash the Dress) with the fabulous Retha of www.darkroom.co.za before she got married and now living in Dubai.
