Matric Farewell: René Oosthuizen

It is that time of year where every high school in South Africa is having their Matric Farewell. I am very lucky to be part of some of these young people’s special occasions.

This shoot was very special, since it is was my cousin’s turn to have her Matric Farewell. René looked beautiful and although the weather was incredibly cold, they braved the weather to pose for a few photographs before their big entrance.

Jani & Jaco Matric Farewell {Hidden Valley}

I love this time of year, Matric Farewell season (Prom) is in full swing and I just love to see the gorgeous young couples and breathtakingly beautiful dresses.

This is the 2nd time this young couple has been photographed by me. Exactly one year ago it was Jaco’s matric farewell and I had the pleasure to have these two in front of my lens.

Flashback Wednesday!!

Jeanne & Rohan got married at the beautiful Houw Hoek Inn

A few months before the wedding we took to the beautiful Cape Town to shoot their engagement shoot on one of the most breathtakingly gorgeous beach strips you can find.

Characteristics of Photographers

Being a wedding photographer or any kind of photographer for that  matter forces you to see the world in a different way, you can not help it! You seek beauty in places that on first glance looks dull, you see color where everything seems grey and you look for details that might easily be overseen by others.

The journey to that perfect image takes you on weird, wonderful and sometimes dangerous routes…all made worth it when you get the image you want.
