Janus & Monique

JOYFUL. GENUINE. IMITATE. ALIVE.

Janus and Monique are just one of the coolest couples, they made us feel welcome and like friends from the moment we met.

Janus and Monique both grew up in a small town. (maybe that was our instant connection) They seemed to have met when they were still babies or a toddler and a baby :), but only really got to know each other later in life. The two long distance for a bite, while Monique completed her degree in Potchefstroom.  Got engaged and finally tied the Knott.  I love it when I met a couple who just have this longing to do life together. I pray that you always protect this longing for each other, and fall even more in love with each other!

Thank you for trusting us to capture these memories for you. I hope you love the photos as much as we did taking them for you.

Much Love,

Francois & Anneke

Rensche Mari Wedding Workshop Gauteng

We all need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how” – Unknown

I had the privilege to attend Rensche Mari’s Wedding workshop. It was amazing and I learned so much I can already see how my business developed since the Workshop in March. For my photographer friends if you are looking for a game changer workshop attend RMW it is so worth it!

As part of the workshop, we get to Photograph a styled session.

Enjoy the black and white color palette with me and be inspired!

Rian & Carlé, Pepermossie Wedding

“Jou denke sal myne omhels
jou begin sal my begin wees
jou einde my einde” -Antjie Krog

Rian & Carle, trou die 19 Mei 2018. Daar is so baie dele van julle troue wat ons almal se harte geroer het…en vir die meer emosionele se oë vol trane laat opdam het. Wat vir my die mooiste was is die  “Wedding vows” aan mekaar. Ek deel so ‘n klein deeltjie:

“T.T Cloete skryf in een van sy gedigte aan sy vrou: “Kyk ek na die melkweg, in die gras, in die water, na die boog van die aarde, altyd iewers is jy ingepas.” Dit is met geen toeval dat wanneer ek die letters in jou naam herrangskik, dit die Engelse woord “Rain” word nie. Alles omtrent jou is ’n verfrissing vir my siel. Daar is op hierdie aarde niks wat so lekker ruik so die aarde na ’n bui reën nie, daar is selfs ’n woord daarvoor: “petrichor”. Jou teenwoordigheid bring hoop, vertroosting en gee lewe. Dit is my wens dat ons vir die res van ons lewens mekaar met dieselfde opgewondenheid tegemoet sal kom, soos wat die aarde ’n bui reën verwelkom” -Carle

“Ons lewe saam gaan vol avonture en mooi oomblikke wees. Die tye wat jy vir my klavier speel en saggies my rug streel. Die tye wat jy vir my lag, en ek vir jou. Dit is soos musiek in my ore en dit laai my siel. Jy is my perfekte lewensmaat, my sielsgenoot my beste vriend. Ek het die een gekry waarvoor my siel lief is. Jy was soos ‘n ster vir my, vêr stil & rein… my siel die donker water waar jou beeld in skyn. Ek kan dit nog steeds nie glo dat jy myne is nie.”

Ek bid dat julle altyd so Lièf bly!

Bethlehem Styled Session

“Welcome to Wonderland, should we go on an adventure or should we have tea first?”

Since I moved to Bethlehem last year September I had a dream of doing a styled shoot in collaboration with local talent! I met up with Stephani of Ruby Whoo Event Makeup and Elize form All in One Party Hire, they were just as excited as I were and we started to dream together…

We decided to go for a moody color palette, rich textures, and vintage furniture. I love how the combination of color and texture adds something unique to our wedding design. This is a bold concept and it somehow makes you feel you are Alice in Wonderland.

If you plan to get married in the Easton Free-state, we are your suppliers!!

Thanks for everyone’s hard work and for making my dream possible!

Viv & Rochel, Driekwartblou Wedding

“Love is the closest thing we have to magic”

Viv & Rochel’s wedding is a picture of all my favorited things: Love, family, Karoo, friends, farm, rain and the joining of two beautiful families. There were so many special moments at this wedding, knowing Rochel all my life made it even more emotional.  Rochel is a talented architect with an incredible ability to put things together. Her autumn, Karoo inspired theme was stylish, elegant and fresh.  Viv and Rochel story begins in East London, with lots of adventures and stories to tell these to decided to tie the Knott on the 24 March 2018 on Rochel’s family farm. It was a beautiful day.  Viv and Rochel thank you for taking me on this lovely journey with you… I loved being part of your perfect day.

I pray that the rest of your life would be even more special than your Wedding! Bly altyd so lief vir mekaar!
