Lynn & Wayne

25 September, 2007

It’s been a crazy few weeks, been a busy little bee photographing and editing. Last week I was honoured to have photographed Lynn and Wayne’s wedding at Thaba Ya Batswana.

It was truly a blessing to be there to capture their special moments throughout the day. They both were such an energetic and loving couple.  

A detail that I thought was super cool and different …..Lynn walked down the aisle to the tune of Beautiful Day, by U2.

Here’s a peek – as you can see from the pictures, they are a great couple!

Liezl & Michael

18 September, 2007

Liezl and Michael are the kind of couple that absolutely make me love what I do. What a fabulous wedding…..with so many details.

Liezl designed everything from the table cards, the name badges,  the cards on the “sweet” counter etc…..so many spectacular details! So talented is Liezl that she even made her own dress,  bought the fabric in white and was brave enough to dye it! I reakon she would have taken the pics herself if it was physically possible!

The reception took place on a boat at Stonehaven and the sun played its role by lighting up the river with it’s sunset! Michael and Liezl all I can say is…..let your love shine through as it will keep you together forever!

I knew Liezl wanted great pics, by the thousands upon thousands of links on wedding photography she emailed through, so worked the couple a little harder than most…but I think that the pics speak for themselves…thanks for your patience Michael!

I am doing some major blog catching up today and there is no better way to start than to post some pictures from Marne and Charl’s engagement shoot. I must say I am really looking forward to their wedding in October as Marne is a graphic artist and that means details…..which I loove!

I received some lovely comments recently and just haven’t had the time to post them…

From Liza-Marie and David

“Thank you to both you and Tanja for being at our wedding.  We had a fantastic time with the two of you.

We had a look at the photos on the blog – I must say, they are amazing!  I think you did a fantastic job.

Looking forward to see the rest of our pictures, to be honest, can’t wait….

Thank you… words can’t describe how happy we are with your work!!”

and this one from Lauren’s parents Rose and John…

“John and I have finally arrived home to the UK.  We are so thrilled with your “sneak peek”.  You have done an excellent job, only problem is, you have now left us wanting more.  The photo’s are fantastic.  Thank you so much.  Andrea also a big thank you for your attention to detail and I am sure you have captured the whole lot.  I would also like to put on record our thanks for making Wesley and Lauren’s day so special.  The guests that we have spoken to since the wedding have all commented on the two lady photographers and how fantastic you were.”  

On that note I would also like to thank Lauren and Wesley, and the other two “album couples” for their patience and understanding …….my worst nightmare my PC crashed last week…an absolute nightmare that has led to an editing backlog.

Luckily I am paranoid about backing up the so no images have been lost, but the edited work …gone.  Data recovery I hear you ask ?….have tried two companies already with no luck and will try a last option this week! When I do something I do it properly!

It just means cold coffee, late nights and a new PC for me!

David & Liza-Mari

3 September, 2007

Last weekend Tanja and I got up at 4am (…Yip! no typo here 4am in the morning!) and travelled to Clarens.

Situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains….The Golden Gate National Park was the venue of our last wedding. The tranquil ambience combined with the scenic views made for a spectacular backdrop for Liza and David’s wedding.

You may remember the couple from their enagagement session…and I must admit that since then I have been excited for a couple of reasons….one they are naturals infront of the camera & interact as if they were on their own and secondly I have been looking  forward to shooting in Clarens.

Liza was brought up on a farm in Clarens and knew exactly where she wanted photographs to be taken.

Their ceremony was held outside overlooking the majestic mountains….and what an increadible view, but what stood out from the grandeur of nature was infact the “grandness” of their love. We can always tell when a couple is really and truly in love, and one thing is for sure David and Liza are really in love.

 I also have to mention that in his speech David managed to say a couple of words in Afrikaans…well done “Dawie”!

So here you go guys a little preview from their wedding day……
