Stiaan & Bianca trou by Fancourt

Dit was ‘n absolute voorreg en eer om Bianca en Stiaan se troue, Saterdag die 9de September, by Fancourt af te neem. Toe Bianca my gevra het om haar troue af te neem het ek die happy dance gedoen, nie net omdat sy ‘n beeldskone mens is nie, maar ook omdat ons al jare saam werk in die trou industrie en omdat ek weet sy kon kies uit soveel amazing fotograwe. Dankie Bianca dat jy my gekies het;)

Ek het verlede jaar Bianca se sussie, Tania se troue afgeneem, en dit was so lekker om altwee families weer te sien. Ek het sommer tuis gevoel en het nie vir een oomblik gevoel ek werk nie. Dankie Roodes en de Ridders!
Stiaan en Bianca, mag julle al die jare wat voorlé verbaas staan van die Here se hand op julle lewens en huwelik en mag Sy goedheid en guns julle volg al die dae van julle lewe.
Baie liefde
Michelle

Johannes & Janita trou by Oppie Plaas

Johannes & Janita het Saterdag by Oppie Plaas getrou. Dit was ‘n YSKOUE dag, maar dit het hulle nie in die minste gepla nie! Ek het lank uitgesien om foto’s te neem van dié mooi rooikop bruid en dit was die wag die moeite werd. Sy het beautiful gelyk en het soos ‘n handskoen in haar rok gepas.
Dankie dat ek en Jaco kon deel in julle mooiste (en koudste) dag…haha!
Ek hoop julle hou van die vinnige voorsmakie!

Nicolas & Anzanne’s wedding in the Garden Route

Nicolas, a French gentleman and Anzanne, a South African girl, met while Nico was touring Kruger National Park… and the rest is history! They now live in France, but decided to promise their love at the Garden Route Game Lodge, outside of Albertinia and wanted me to be a part of their big day:)Thank you so much N&A for trusting me to capture these special memories! I really enjoyed being your photographer!

Anzanne wanted to have some night-time portraits (I explained to her it is not really my style, as I am a natural light photographer:)) But I really enjoyed trying something different and am happy with the results! I hope you will be too Anzanne! Enjoy this sneak peak of your wedding day!

Vivian & Paula’s wedding at Featherbed

Vivian & Paula tied the knot this past Saturday at Knysna Featherbed Nature Reserve. Paula, a beautiful redhead from Scotland met Vivian while working on the crew ships. They fell in love and decided to get married in the beautiful Garden Route, as this is where Vivian is from. Well, I’m glad they decided to get married here, as I got to be a part of their wedding day! Paula looked amaaazing in her Ronald Joyce dress from Scotland… I had to force myself at times to stop photographing her to get to the next part of the day! Haha!
Congratulations Vivian & Paula. Always love each other this much!

Zac & Lara trou by Oppie Plaas

Zac & Lara is amazing mense! Hulle het Saterdag, die 22ste April, by Oppie Plaas getrou. Ek het dit so geniet om saammet hulle te werk. Hulle is sulke chill, go-with-the-flow-mense. Lara, met haar blou oé en bitter mooi glimlag het sooo mooi gelyk in haar rok (nie iets wat sy gereeld dra nie) En Zac kon nie breër smile toe hy haar vir die eerste keer sien nie:)

Dankie dat ek hierdie hoofstuk van julle lewe saam kon deel. Dit was baie spesiaal!
Liefde
Michelle

PS. Dankie vir Suzette Coetzer wat my ge-assisteer en ge-second shoot het! Jy is awesome!

Scotty & Daniela’s love bird wedding at Two birds at the Dairy Shed

Scotty and Daniela tied the knot on the 8th of April at Two birds at the Dairy Shed in Durbanville and Jaco and I had the privilege to be a part of their wedding day. I love shooting at new venues and locations and to work with different service providers, as it stretches me as an artist. I really loved the feel of this very rustic venue, so informal, but still stylish. I loved the décor and soft pastel colors and the newlywed’s little love bird table. I loved Daniela’s wedding dress and basically the whole vibe of this wedding!

Thank you Scotty and Daniela for bringing us all the way from George to be a part of your celebration!
Lots of love
Michelle

Barend & Monique trou by Surval

Barend & Monique said their “I-do’s” at the beautiful Surval in Oudtshoorn on Saturday, the 17th of March 2017.
They requested a bit of a more ‘styled look’ as to what I usually do, but I must say, I actually enjoyed doing something a little different for them. Monique looked so gorgeous in her dress and knew just how to work the camera:)
M&B ek het julle troue baie geniet! Dankie dat ek kon deel wees daarvan!
Liefde
Michelle
