What an international couple this is! Sven is a German/ South African, and Jcil is from the Philippines. They met in Dubai, got engaged in Bali, had their engagement photoshoot in South Africa and are getting married in Hong Kong! :) Sven and Jcil are gentle, yet fun loving folk who absolute love to travel! (Surprise, surprise! :) )
They mentioned they would want some vineyards and lavender fields, and asked if I knew of a spot. Franschhoek was the first area that came to mind because having a French hertitage…there had to be some lavender somewhere right?! And also being part of the Cape winelands there would be ample vineyards… Not only did we find beautiful lavender fields, and gorgeous autumn yellow vineyards…but we also had THE most divine golden hour light any photographer could wish for! Add a super in love couple to the mix and you have the perfect couple shoot!
Sven and Jcil are also such naturals in front of the camera and made my job of getting pretty photo’s so incredibly easy! Thanks guys for a wonderful afternoon spent with you. It was so great getting to know you a bit and wish you only the very best for your wedding planning and preparation time! :) May your relationship and marriage be blessed beyond comprehension and may you always fondly remember your visit to Franschhoek when you look back at these photo’s. Sending lots of love xxx
