The look and feel of the shoot was a soft and subtle feel with a lot of natural movement between the couple. There is a lot of detail in the couple with the flower detail in the hair and a mix of colours in the dress. We tried to have minimalistic backgrounds so that the focus point could on the couple.
Pieter saw Elsje at Varsity in Potchefstroom for the first time where we both studied. Elsje was still very unaware of him, but he knew for the very first time that I am the one he wants to marry. After Elsje’s studies she got her first Job and Pieter also worked in the same area where she worked.They saw each other in the Gym quite a few times after work and then we officially met where we fell deeply in love.
They decided to get married soon and after 8 months he asked her to marry him. He told her that he has a job interview in Cape Town and that she should go with him unaware that this is the actual day that he would ask her to marry him. He took her to a private beach in Houtbay with champagne and snacks. He made her a small video on his laptop where his Mom and Dad welcomed me into the family. Elsje’s parents and siblings also made a small video clip. After he showed her, he went down on one knee and asked her to marry him.
