Campbell & Bianca

We packed our bags & headed for the mountains down by the Atlantic ocean to document campbell & bianca’s weekend wedding at Vensterklip in Elands bay, situated in the Western Cape, South-Africa. Campbell & Bianca’s wild + free spirited hearts captivated ours, we loved how you two embraced the offshore winds on your wedding day & it shows in the pictures! Wind symbolizes the act of change or the bringing in the new and sweeping out the old.


Though the dried up dam, that served as our backdrop, inspired some gorgeous pictures during their couple shoot session… our hearts go out to Cape-Town during the drought crisis they are currently undergoing.


Run away with me

Lost souls and reverie

Running wild and running free

Two kids, you and me

Damiane & Michelle

It was an exceptional day when Michelle & Damiane made the most sacred promise they have ever made. We’ve been friends with Damiane for a few years & he is the most genuine, incredibly kind hearted person. When Michelle came into his life… a beautiful, new & very exciting adventure started.


We were overjoyed when he contacted us to document their wedding day. They celebrated their wedding day at 012central which is in the heart of Pretoria, South-Africa. It is a creative inner city space surrounded by city scapes & urban structures. They’re both creatives & made, planned & created everything for their wedding day themselves.


Crutches made their wedding day story even more interesting… Damiane hurt his foot the night before hanging leaves from the roof & even had a quick trip to the hospital the morning of his wedding! We loved all the illustration details, the confetti poppers, socks for wedding gifts & the doughnuts were the best we’ve had in a long time.


You have made each other better humans, you’re best friends & compliment each other so amazingly. You are now ‘home’ to each other & may you both grow in ways that you have never imagined. We had a great time working and celebrating with you!

Always love each other endlessly as you did on this day…



Jonathan & Rozanne

We spent a winters afternoon with Rozanne & Jono in Pretoria, South-Africa for their engagement shoot session. Rozanne loved listening to Jono play his guitar, they chatted, had coffee & shared a few kisses while we captured all these beautiful moments in the background.

We’ll be documenting their winter wedding in South-Africa in less than a month & images like these makes us excited for what we’ll be able to document with the full wedding day we’ll get to spent with them & the ones they love dearly!


Guy & Ploy

Shooting a creative’s wedding is always a big honor for us. Guy & Ploy are the owners of Hoi P’loy – the most beautiful lighting design company in South Africa. It was such a joy when we first started chatting to them, as we have some of their lighting products in our little home in Pretoria too!


We traveled to Calitzdorp, a beautiful little town in the Klein Karoo, Western Cape, South Africa to document Guy & Ploy’s wedding celebrations with close family & friends. The intimate ceremony & reception all took place at Guy’s parents’ home & art gallery.


They wanted their wedding to be a bit different…


Guy & Ploy made their marriage official & signed their register at the magistrate court in Cape Town & afterwards had a really small get together in their home. a Few days later… guests travelled from all-over the world to Calitzdorp to share in this part of the celebration. They wanted everything about their small wedding celebration day to be as less stressful and relaxed as possible, with no ‘wedding rules’. For us, the most special part of the day was when Guy helped Ploy to get dressed & picked some olive branches from the garden for her to put in her hair.

They held hands & walked down to the church to greet their family & friends before the ceremony started. a Traditional ‘boere orkes’ band played in the background while everyone moved down to the ceremony area. During the ceremony they practiced a beautiful tradition where each guest had a chance to say a personal blessing over them.


The reception space was filled with Hoi P’loy lights & details! Tables were decorated with natural elements… olive branches from the farm’s garden, pomegranates, lemons, pears & figs. Handmade ceramic dinner plates & bowls by Guy’s mom and Ploy added the finishing touches. Guests were treated with a traditional South-African bbq for dinner and homemade cake for dessert. The evening’s celebrations later moved outside where guests watched the moon & danced under the lights and stars…


It was the greatest pleasure working with you two. Thanks for making us part of your very intimate and special day!

Bouwer & Leandie

When Bouwer and Leandie asked us to document their most important day we knew that it was going to be a wonderful day filled with some pretty spectacular moments. Leandie is on TV and Bouwer makes music & films, but this day was never about that.


You two have touched and inspire so many South-African hearts with the amazing work you do ( including ours! )… we are so excited and felt so blessed with the opportunity to touch a little part of your hearts with a little bit of our work. Thanks for allowing us to do just that and trusting us to document your most wonderful and happiest day.


We spent the morning with the guys making breakfast and taking a quick walk. The girls spent the morning taking it slow & getting pretty and ready in Blooming Blushes gowns.


Leandie’s father led the ceremony and officially married them at snowflake in potchefstroom. ‘Potch’ is the hometown of Bouwer and also only a few minute’s drive from where Leandie grew up. Deon Meiring & Almarie du Preez made beautiful music while guests mingled and congratulated them. Leandi wore a gorgeous wedding dress designed by Kobus Rautenbach, where-after she partied in a second outfit he made for her for the celebration part of the evening. As always, we loved working with jeanel from Pebble and Lace who did their wedding decor & flowers. designed and made little stationery details for them… their stamped wedding logo and #123boschmyself decor vinyls. Their wedding rings were designed & custom made by Lorean jewellery. Zinelda, a close friend, illustrated their wedding invitation and portraits for them which they printed on a big poster for everyone to sign.

A wedding is most probably the only day in one’s life that you will ever have everyone you love most, all together in one place at the same time. So it is only natural to be filled with a whirlwind of emotions. Our post today is not just because you are our clients, but also because you are our friends and we carry both of you in our hearts so dearly. You love each other so selflessly and we admire that about you… We wish you the greatest of joys and adventures ahead.


Treasure the small little moments when life gets busy, lie under the stars when you get a chance, listen to the rain, travel & see the world and then put all the pictures up on the wall. May you have the happiest, fullest filled life together. Kiss a lot… kiss everyday and love each other like crazy!


Leandi & Bouwer… wherever you go, you inspire, you mentor and you give hope with your courageous hearts. Thanks for reminding us that being able to do what one loves is such a precious gift and great privilege. Your lives are now even more beautiful because you have each-other!

Deon & Zinelda

We had the special privilege of documenting our closest friends’ wedding day. They hold a special place in our hearts. Their day took place at “Die Ou Melkstal” which is an awe-inspiring venue setting on the farm “Rhenosterfontein”, located in the beautiful Losberg area in Fochville, North West, which belongs to Zinelda’s family.


With both of us being by their side as a groomsmen & bridesmaid, Nelis flew down from Cape-Town to assist us with this one. Nelis is Werner’s brother and has been working with us since we started taking wedding photos. He covered the venue shots and all of us getting ready and together the three of us teamed up for the rest of the day.


Zinelda is an accomplished children’s book illustrator and Deon a renowned musician / songwriter; their wedding was filled with inspiring attention to small detail, artistic flair and music… lots of music.


The guys’ floral ties & bridesmaids’ skirts were hand-made by Zinelda’s mom. Mariaan made the delicate bouquets for the bride & bridesmaids, as well as the groomsmen’s boutonnieres adding berries and wildflowers from the farm’s garden. Zinelda laughed with the girls, painted her nails red & sipped on champagne in a Blooming Blushes gown. She dreamt of a wedding with berry colors; marsala, reds & all sorts of purples, persian carpets, white orchids, chicken curry for dinner ( it’s their favorite ) & a red velvet wedding cake for dessert… and everything was as she wanted it!


The ceremony took place outside, overlooking the farm in the background. Their Marriage Covenant was marked with salt to affirm their intentions and commitment. The importance of SALT is marked many times in the Bible as a symbol of flavor, preservation, righteousness, truth and eternal commitment.

By blessing their vow to each other with salt, they promised to preserve these values in every element of their marriage. “You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavours of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness?” – Matthew 5:16 (MSG)


After the ceremony guests enjoyed Deon & Zinelda’s favourite wine with a selection of decadent nougat and chocolate while Deon made music with a few friends; his Glaskas band members, some close industry friends as well as Bouwer Bosch his partner in the duo act Dans Dans Lisa.


We literally chased the sun during their couple shoot session, nature definitely shared in their excitement… we had strong winds, dark clouds, a few drops of rain & an African sunset all in the short little time we got to spent with them before the party started! Deon delivered a beautiful speech, his words were kind, deep, from the heart & had many in tears. Being part of the process when friends are getting married is a privilege and after many wedding detail chats over dinner with these two… having the day finally arrived; we were so honored and excited to document it for them.


We can write endless paragraphs about how awesome these two people are, how much they love each other and how much we treasure their kind hearts & friendship… but we hope to share a little bit of you two with these photos… We are excited about the future with you. We are blessed to have you as friends. We were privileged to have been able to document your most beautiful day for you. We wish you lots of music, love and adventures ahead.


“Love is like playing music. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart. “ author unknown
