I have been so inactive these last few months and have so many posts I need to catch up on. Karlè is one of the people I love to photograph the most, she is such a natural in front of the camera. Camera just loves her! In just a few weeks I’m doing her wedding photos and I’m super excited to be part of her exciting day.
A photo taken long before I was certified a photographer and before Karlè was even engaged. A favorite of mine.
As I’ve said before she is one of my favorite people to take photos of, she knows exactly what she wants and it makes it so easy to take photos of her. I’m excited for our next shoot.
So I had the pleasure of taking their engagement photos on the 17th of October. Wynand was so patient and did not even get upset once, even tough there was a huge Springbok rugby game on the same day or even same time we were taking the photos.
“A good marriage requires time. It requires effort. You have to work at it. You have to cultivate it. You have to forgive and forget. You have to be absolutely loyal one to another.” Gordon B. Hinckley

Prayer of a husband and wife: “Keep us o’ Lord from pettiness. Let us be thoughtful in word and deed. Help us to put away pretense and face each other in deep trust without fear or self-pity. Help us to guard against fault-finding, and be quick to discover the best in each other and in every situation. Guard us from ill-temper and hasty judgement; encourage us to take time for all things, grow calm, serene and gentle. Help us to be generous with kind words and compliments. Teach us never to ignore, never to hurt, never to take each other for granted. Engrave charity and compassion on our hearts.” –Unknown
“Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.” —Mark Twain
