Grand Dédale Wedding: Sumay + Sarel

Layered and inspirational as a Hakaan Yildirim creation, this Grand Dédale wedding re-wrote the definition of: never give up. When you listen Sarel’s story on how he rebuilt his life to a massive success after being dealt an absolute double minus (more than once), and then to discover Sumay that is cut from the same block, is nothing but super amazing. It’s the type of story that people pay to listen to. The type of story that gives you more grunt in your bones than the strongest caffeine kick. I always count my lucky stars, but discovering and working with insanely stunning courageous beautiful people, such as Sumay and Sarel are the purest of blessings.

A bit off topic: While I was in Wellington I stayed at Jacaranda Wines. I usually don’t give a mention of the places where I stay, but in this instance I promised Birgit I would. The reason? A long long time ago, way before I ever knew much about the Western Cape, I was told stories by a very special person (still for me to this day) of just how wonderful a spread in this part of the world can be. What I experienced at Jacaranda reminded me of that very special person as I was having my good share of sweet figs, rare cheeses, thickly crusted home backed breads, plenty of sweet fruit served with a variety of organic proteins, and of course lots quality conversations in between. Jacaranda Wines is a highly recommended stay.

Find your treasure chest and fill it with memories.

Love the uniqueness of every Wedding, Hannes. Another great set of images; so different from the set before and yet just as brilliant.

As memories will always keep us by and emphasise who we are. :)
One of your most stunning shoots H. – congratulations!

Hannes, die fotos is absoluut STUNNING!!!!! Ek en Sarel kyk al heeldag na die fotos en elke keer het ons ‘n ander favorite foto. Ons het nie woorde nie. Dis epic! Dis amazeballs. Dis absoluut ‘tit-hot’!!!! Ons tweetjies voel soos modelle en met elke foto het ons spesiale oomblikke van ons trou-dag herleef. Jy het waarlik die emosie ge’capture’. Baie dankie. Jou werk is ‘n meesterstuk. Sela. Baie liefde, Sarel en Sumay
PS – Ons sien uit om al die fotos te ontvang, kan nie wag nie.

Wedding at River Place: Chrizaan + Henk

I was talking to Diana and Gavin the other day. Between the three of us Diana is definitely the brightest. Without fail. She mentioned that photography has changed so much that it has become more of a chosen lifestyle than a good career choice. Gavin said nothing. I said nothing. But she was right. Life has changed and keeps changing. The only constant. Yet, what will never change are emotions and how we react to life itself. Digital or analogue, emotions don’t care about format. They just happen. Hence, I guess we try to freeze them.

Anyway, I tend to try to keep wedding photography posts short to let the images tell the story, rather than re-writing the same story in text. For this one I recently had a killer time documenting Capetonians Henk and Chrizaan’s wedding at River Place. A beautiful set of pixels they make.
