Today, we are sharing the gorgeous styled shoot from Yolandi & Evan’s whimsical, yet classical and elegant styled engagement shoot done at Rosemary Hill, shot by the amazing Rianka from Rianka’s Wedding Photography. A styled shoot can cover any aspect of a wedding, and this shoot shows that engagement shoots can be styled and stunning when a little thought is put into it. Rianka is sharing her experience with us.
When we started to plan this shoot we knew exactly where we wanted to shoot, and we planned the theme around it. A Green House is such a lovely backdrop for an engagement shoot as it lends itself to a variety of themes and beautiful light. The theme for their wedding French Vintage with a modern touch and subtle glances of pink, purple and crisp mints. We replicated this colour theme throughout with simple elegance.
Our photographic style lends itself to a Romantic yet timeless approach. These exceptional moments between an in-love couple is what is so unique about this engagement shoot. The way these two interacted with each other, their playfulness and loving manner towards each other.
Our engagement sessions are a platform for the couple to have fun and simultaneously the couple and us get to know each other. We believe through these sessions the couple is more relaxed on their wedding day, because they know what to expect.
Yolandi has a degree in Somatology, and furthermore studied photography. She was one of my students from Tshwane University of Technologies, where I teach photography part time. From being her lecturer to wedding photographer!
We don’t only photograph memories; we capture the most important detail through beautiful lighting to take a snapshot to a masterpiece that you will cherish for years to come.
