Set in the majestic valley of the Cape Winelands, Ryan and Angelique have chosen Lanzerac, one of the most exquisite wedding venues to be joined in matrimony on the 8th of August 2009. I had the pleasure of meeting this warm and friendly couple for coffee, where we discussed what I can do for them as a photographer.
After much deliberation and negotiations, it was unanimous that I would be chosen to share their day with them. Yes, I was chosen as their wedding photographer and what an honour it is. Celebrating such a momentous day, we could not negate the opportunity to do an e-session and what a good decision that was.
We meet a few weeks later at the place where Ryan proposed to Angelique.
Full of laughter and cheer, Angelique played along as we recreated the day Ryan popped the question. “Come on Ryan on your knees chanted Angelique”. Ryan, now turning a light shade of red, giggles, gets on his knees and plays along. He gazes at her and for a moment it seemed as Ryan has lost his voice and the ability to think straight. Peeping through my view finder, I see the love and respect they have for each other. As Ryan gazes and Angelique getting lost in the moment, they embraced without saying a word and like magic, they knew what they wanted to say to each other.
Overlooking the Stellenbosch wine valley, I saw why Ryan chose this place to propose too Angelique. Filled with pristine beauty, peace and calmness, the wine lands were metaphors of Ryan and Angelique.
A blessed and passionate couple, I wish you all the best for your wedding preparation and am looking forward to making your day a success.
Here's a few more pictures of their e-session:
