There’s nothing more exciting than doing a shoot at a place we haven’t been to before, and the light is magical, and there’s nobody around but us and the couple. Sandri & Diederick asked to have their shoot at Bergvallei Estates in Muldersdrift, where they’ll be getting married next year in February. They’re a gorgeous couple together, happy and relaxed, and really awesome to work with – their love is so obvious, it’s a real treat to photograph such lovebirds!They brought some balloons along with their date written on them, and it was quite the mission to get them to line up to see all the numbers facing the camera. 3 stubborns balloons + 1 OCD assistant = hilarious! Eventually, the balloons sort of won, but we tried our best. My favourite part of the shoot was when Sandri & Diederick let their balloons go free!
The venue is so huge and with so many beautiful places to use for photographs, it was tough to not use every single area in their engagement shoot – got to leave some of those special spots for their wedding next year! We had a blast traipsing around the venue, finding lovely spots and getting some gorgeous light (once the giant clouds had moved out of the way!).
Thank you Sandri & Diederick for choosing us and for organising the venue, and for being so gorgeous to photograph! We can’t wait til February next year for you wedding – just blink and it’ll be here! ♥
