Rhuan & Carine's pre-wedding shoot   Liefland wedding venue - April 2019
A pre-wedding shoot, or engagement shoot is always such fun - seeing the happiness, togetherness and hope for the future, in a couple soon to be married, is always special!  The engagement is such a special and significant event, and deserves its own collection of photos to mark the event, as the 1st step on the road to the wedding day.  
However, the shoot serves more than one purpose. Firstly, it allows the photographer and the couple to get better acquainted, get to know each other, and become comfortable being together.  A good photographer will also teach a few basic poses, share a few jokes, and before you know it, the couple will be looking like professional models, unaware of the camera clicking away. No one wants forced smiles and awkward poses for their wedding images and the pre-wedding shoot helps to get the couple relaxed and comfortable, and being themselves in front of the camera.

Hardus & Linda Visagie - Karoo wedding

Shortly after the arrival of the new year I set off on a journey into the Karoo, Tankwa Karoo to be specific. The place is hot, to match the warm hospitality of the people that inhabit the Tankwa Karoo.
This is not a three or four hour journey as the mileage count may suggest, it's a day's journey. Spectacular scenery to absorb, while it is probably better to travel slowly anyway. The hospitality from the people at Gannaga Lodge is just amazing, and they just know you need a few litres of chilled water when you arrive. There is plenty of time for other stuff later.  Johan and his son Izak together with their staff run an efficient setup at the lodge, from rooms to bar to catering. And if you forget for a moment where you are and feel the urge to be pressed for time because the hands of the clock are approaching a certain hour, they will gently remind you that you are in the middle of nowhere and there is no rush to go anywhere right then. It will be when it is ready! Saturday …
