I met Charl and Maryke for the first time about 2 weeks ago for a little engagement session before the big day. We hopped around town a bit to do some location shots before heading out to the veld at Platrand Lodge to make full use of the setting sun and the soft, buttery light that comes with sunsets in this part of the world.
We started of in an old abandoned train yard in town, and got some great shots there with the fading light. Maryke’s stunning blonde hair really brought out the best in the sunset, with golden coloured highlights making some of the images really dramatic and adding great texture.
With him being an engineer and her an actuary, it is a match made in heaven. The fact that they are just sooooo in love made my job a lot easier, and all I have to do was set the stage to capture the moments as they happened. If this is what their engagement session was like, I can’t wait for the wedding. It is going to be a fairy tale in the Northern Natal Bush veld. Click here if you want to skip to the main event.
