You and I forever

I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.

My African Dream

Now when the night begins to fall
I listen for your call, I listen for you heartbeat
Alone my dream is just a dream
Another false illusion, a shadow in the night
All I want is for our hearts to be beating just as one – Vicky Sampson

Ek is useless sonder jou
Ek lewe klein en uncomplicated
Die eenvoud is so underrated
As ek naby is aan jou
As ek naby is aan jou
Ons is

Forever together

Tuesdays are my new favourite day for weddings.  Between the busy city hustle and bustle somewhere on the 3rd floor of a skyscraper, they said – I do.  May all your adventures be together and with God.

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right
Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right

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.

And we climb a step
Every day it’s you and I
We climb a step
Every day and every night
It’s every time you look at my face
You give me this feeling
Every time you look in my eyes
My heart starts to tumble
Oh I think of you all the time – The Kelly Family

Wow – What an experience. I am a Cat person, that became a dog person, so I suppose I am now a dog and a cat person. I was a bit nervous at first when the “special guest” joined the couple shoot at Farm Inn. It was just so special to spend some time with this beautiful couple in an equally beautiful setting.  Standing up close seeing this beautiful animal breath is just so unreal.  Not a kitty you want to mess with though.

The story of two Penguins #dirkenmicheletrou

Sticks and stones aren’t for breaking bones, if you’re a penguin. They’re symbols of love. Sticks adorn the nests where they raise their children, and stones serve as heartfelt gifts from one bird to another.

The Girl next door

Larry and Amy met when Amy was only 3 days old. Amy’s parents took her next door to their neighbours and friends, the Shuttleworths, to introduce her. As they say, the rest is history.

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

Pretoria, De Haven Oost

Today we celebrate love.

We first met at school, we were in the same art class. One day in October 2015 we decided to go for a picnic at the botanical gardens. It was a nice and warm day. We walked around for about 30mins to get the perfect spot under the trees. Unfortunately, or should I say fortunately for Julian, there were geese roaming around there. Now I am terrified of big birds, but we set up our picnic blanket anyway. I was keeping an eye on these geese as I did not trust them. Julian said to me: “ I think you need to stand up, just to be safe please stand up” He also started getting up and then I was ready to start running. But then I saw him on his one knee, shaking from the nerves, taking my one hand and saying the most beautiful words. We were both shaking. I said YES!! to this awesome man in front of me.

Kobus & Sonja

Nouveau Wedding Venue – Pretoria East

Kobus and Sonja got married on Saturday, 1 July 2017.  A day that is suppose to be in the middle of the winter. But it was perfect, not too cold at all, but just cold enough for a fire.  Close family and friends were there to celebrate with them.  It was meaningful and above all it was joyful. I think it is save to say, if they could, they would do it all over again tomorrow but luckily they have the rest of their lives together.

The day began for both Kobus and Sonja with getting ready at Venue Nouveau, in Pretoria East where it was obvious that this was going to be a fun day for everyone involved!  Sonja was dressed in an exquisite lace dress designed by Werner Day and her make-up was perfected by Melissa Bam.  Friends serenaded them while enjoying champagne and a beautiful cake from The Baking Room.

It could not have been a more beautiful day.

It’s about those invisible moments that connect us with the people we love and it was lovely to be the one to capture those moments for you.

Thank you Kobus and Sonja, for making “The Girl With The Camera” part of your special day!
