Devon Valley and its winelands were filled with laughter on the day Matthias and Engela got married. Friends and family came from far (and not so far) to truly celebrate the marriage of these 2 beautiful people. I wish I can describe the feeling in my heart when I think back on their wedding. The air was thick with gratitude, beauty and joy – they are 2 special people and they certainly attract like-hearted people.

Dankie Engela en Matthias. It was such a privilege to document your day!!!

It was beautiful to see how much Pieter and Sarah care for each other. I’ve heard a few times where Pieter checked in with Sarah to make sure she was enjoying her day. And at some stage Sarah asked Pieter if he was happy, and he just smiled, said “very” and gave her a kiss.

Dankie dat ek julle dag kon vasvang Pieter en Sarah! Dis was ‘n fees om julle te kon ontmoet. Geniet julle foto’s en memories wat saam met dit gaan!

Goeie harte wat lief is vir Jesus + mense-mense + hou van lag & goeie tye = Stephan & Nastassja!

(Ek meen, wie anders reel ‘n springkasteel sodat ons hulle op dit in die middel van ‘n stoppelland kan afneem!?)

Julle 2 is awesome en ek voel so bevoorreg om julle te kon leer ken en afneem. Julle as couple, julle liefde vir mekaar/God/julle mense, skitter. Moet nie ophou fun he nie- your joy is your strength! Lekker kyk en die dag herleef.

From the very first mail Abi sent me I was excited to photograph her and Gary’s wedding. I met her back in 2009 when I photographed one of her sister’s weddings, also in Colorado. Little did I know, a few years down the line I would witness her getting married! The day and everything around it was beautiful. She must have been one of the calmest, yet most excited brides I’ve ever photographed. And Gary – he just LOVED making Abigail his wife.

Thank you so much Abigail and Gary. I loved documenting your wedding day, getting to see some familiar faces and meeting new ones! <3

WAT ‘N TROUE! These 2 are CRAZY about each other and I loved witnessing them starting their marriage. Yes, the location was spectacular, good light followed us all day long and they were dressed the tee, but what stood out was how excited Constant and June was to get married.

June en Constant – julle is so ‘n awesome couple. Ek sien uit om te sien watse lekker planne die Here met julle 2 saam het. Om julle te kon document was net ‘n lekkerte en voorreg van begin tot einde.

Geniet die memories van die dag! xxx

What a privilege to photograph these 2! Beautiful people. Breathtaking landscapes. Twinkling eyes.

But, this wedding has a little extra story to it…. As Johan said in his speech on the wedding day: “Esté had her photographer before her groom.” Have a look at her first 2 emails to me:

2010: Epos van Esté na ek foto’s geneem het van Johannes en Carmin in New Castle:

Hi Lizelle,
Ek beplan om oor 5 jaar te trou in die Drakensberge. Intussen moet ek eers oor my siening kom dat die lewe te kort is om nog te deel. Ek joke net! Seriously, beplan om eeeeendag te trou en sal graag wil hê jy moet my kiekies neem. Ek laat weet net soadat wanneer ek jou oor 5 jaar bespreek, jy my sal onthou.
Blessings, Esté

2015:

Dagsê Lizelle. Ek herrinner jou graag, sommer baie graag, aan ‘n e-pos wat ek 5 jaar terug vir jou gestuur het. Ek vertrou dit gaan sommer baie goed met jou?

Ek is verskriklik opgewonde om te sê ek het toe my suinige siening heeltemal verander! Ek het die afgelope naweek verloof geraak aan ‘n rockstar-nerd, yster van ‘n man met ‘n hart van goud! Ons hoop om in 2016 die knoop deur te trek.  Ek het nog nie ‘n venue nie, ek het eers gaan kyk na jou beskikbaarheid maar ek sien daar is hoop vir my!
Ek hoor bitter graag van jou!
Vreeslike verliefde groete,
Esté
And of coarse I was super excited to be able to travel to Clarens to photograph this wedding I’ve been “promised” 5 years ago. It was nothing short of magical. (Here are a few personal images from this trip) From Esté making triple sure we have enough to eat at our garden cottage, to the amazing bridal party and guests that made both Theresa and I(who was my right hand and traveling friend on the trip) feel like part of the family, to family members who agreed to drive us up mountains for the bride&groom shoot.

So baie dankie Esté en Johan. Mag die mooi van jul dag en omgewing net ‘n weerspieëling van julle huwelik wees! Dit was so lekker en ekstra spesiaal om in ‘n stukkie van julle storie te kon deel.

Baie-baie liefde, Lizelle xxx

PS: As julle ooit vows renew – kan ek ASB julle weer afneem!? :)
