Pieter and Antoinette got married in their hometown Villiersdorp, which is a quaint little town nestled behind the Franschhoek mountains. Driving past the Theewaterskloof dam, I was thinking to myself; “Imagine how cool it would be to do a shoot here? I’ll save this location in my memory bank for another time.” But little did I realise that Villiersdorp is close enough to the dam so that we would actually be able to do Pieter and Antointette’s couple shoot photo”s there…Score! :)
We also shot some of the photo’s on Pieter’s farm and got one or two in amongst his young brocolli crop. We wanted to incorporate the brocolli lands because they held a special part in the story of how Pieter proposed. Pieter took Antoinette on a walk up the mountain overlooking his farm and when she looked over the brocolli lands she saw that Pieter had dug up the words, “trou met my” out of the ready to harvest brocolli! This is by far one of the most innovative propsals I’ve heard in a while from a very creative farmer!
Pieter en Antionette, baie gelukkig met jul huwelik. Mag die jare wat voorle oorloop met liefde, vreugde, vrede en God se rykse seenings vir julle tweetjies! Dankie dat ek kon deel wees van julle dag!
Dankie ook aan Nienie, my oulike assistent wat my uitgehelp het! Jou pragtige glimlag en vreudge het my dag baie lekker gemaak! :)
