Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

Be your own kind of beautiful.

From the tips of your toes to the depths of your soul, you are so beautiful.

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself. …

Love Is In The Air

.Love Is In The Air

Love is in the air, everywhere I look around

Love is in the air, in the whisper of the tree

Love is in the air, in the rising of the sun

Dear Lucy

I heard I am your favourite. You are my favourite too – but don’t tell the others, I don’t want them to feel bad or miss out on any treats they might want to share with their Golden Boy (Ben).  You looked beautiful.  Sorry for stepping on your dress.  I really just wanted to give you a kiss. I noticed another handsome guy – a bit taller than me, intruding on our photo session. I allowed him to be in some photos just to keep the peace.  Okay okay not true – I was informed he was your date and I am not allowed to join at Velmore Hotel and Spa.  Perhaps next time I will bring you flowers too and get to go out with a gorgeous girl at my side.

Love Ben

(Your Golden Boy aka Golden Retriever)

2 Church Street, Pretoria CBD

Pretoria CBD is officially one of my favourite spots. Character and charm of old buildings around each corner, with a few new modern buildings creeping up to introduce new life into a once very vibrant area.

Being greeted by friendly security guards and friendly pedestrians we got to see the inside of the Nederlands Bank, now used for the city’s tourism offices.   I felt like a kid in a candy store. Just as I thought I couldn’t be more surprised with what this city could offer at 6 am on a Saturday morning, we came across more and more beauty. I am so glad Anke & Christo was brave enough to step out into the cold for the very early and very cold engagement shoot.

Thanks, Pretoria CBD for your charm and friendliness. Next time we want coffee Cafe Riche.

Engagement shoot, Pretoria East

She said: I will.

Congratulations on this next big adventure.

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”  When friends get engaged it seems fitting that an E-shoot is in order. It wasn’t a whirl wind romance or love at first sight – but a couple ready for a lifespan full of adventure and love when they decided to commit to one another.

Birthday Celebration in Boho Chic style

 A fun and cheerful vibe were set at the lovely wedding and party venue in Cullinan, JanHarmsgat se agterplaas.  The guests arrived in outfits fitting with the party theme; Boho Chic.  When dressed as chic as that, you cannot let the moment pass you by, so we sneaked away for some couple photos in and around the venue.

The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by.
Enjoy the last few months of school and all the best for you know what …

Your future is waiting!

The Girl next door

Love (Larry) will find you, no matter where you are.

Larry and Amy met when Amy was only 3 days old. Amy’s parents took her next door to their neighbors and friends, the Shuttleworths, to introduce her.

The Shuttleworths emigrated to Canada in 1992 but kept in touch with the Gathercole family. In 2014, Amy visited the family in Canada and was asked by Susan and her husband, Greg, to be the godmother of their son, while Larry was named as godfather. Amy enjoyed her stay with the family. During the course of 2015, Amy returned to Canada and au paired for the Harper family, caring for her godson.  Larry started inviting himself around to ‘visit his godson’. After a few visits, Larry asked Amy out on a date. The following Monday, Larry then left for Peru where he worked for four months, but not before asking Amy to be his girlfriend.

Amy had to return to South Africa in October of the same year. However, their long-distance relationship continued for a further eleven months. In September 2016, Amy was accepted to study her Master of Social Work degree in Canada and returned to her beloved once again. Larry proposed on April 1st, 2017 near a beautiful lake in an Ontario provincial park.

Engagement photo shoot – 012 Central

A city is distinguished from other human settlements by its relatively great size, but also by its functions and its special symbolic status. Pretoria CBD a gem I need to explore more often. Great architecture surrounded us as well as a surprising joyous vibe that followed us as we changed locations during the photo shoot.  Overlooking the Pretoria State theatre from a nearby building rooftop we could catch the last of the soft winter sunlight before the surrounding high-rises buildings were the only sight left on the horizon.  The capital’s hustle and bustle made up by locals jamming on the street corner in front of the State Theater’s entrance and the famous Taxi drivers hooting their way true late afternoon traffic.

When coffee is your thing

Menlopark, Pretoria – The Daily Coffee Cafe

Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it’s hard to go back to sleep.

More than just great coffee, I was able to catch great moments between Michele and Dirk, soon to be married.

What a privilege to capture moments of love, connection and dreams coming true.

Looking forward to your wedding.

Rowanne & Gerhard

Loved the friendly nuzzles from this handsome stallion even though my hands were freezing.  A horse is like a best friend. They’re always there to nuzzle you and make your life a better place.

Roanne & Gerhard arrived early for an already early photo shoot during their visit to the city. We wanted to capture the early morning sun on the stallions back and I could not have asked for a better setting than the inside of the arena.

What Dreams May Come

Super special couple, and super fun. You can see it in their photos. I might have found my match – I never want to stop but I know for my clients’ sake I need to ack away my camera after an hour or two. But not these two – Thanks for being such great sports.

The beginnings of love, the falling in love part, gives us starry eyes and butterflies in the stomach. It gives us someone, even better than a friend, to dance and dine with, someone to adventure with.

It’s these reasons why we want to write sonnets and sing love songs — and why love makes us do things that other people might even think are a little crazy.
