Manie & Ruchelle | Laatson
I have known Ruchelle for the past 8 years, and seen her grown from a teenager into a beautiful women, who took our breaths away as her dad walked her down the aisle.
For a moment it sadden me realizing that our kids grow up far too quick and the time we have with them should be treasured, once they are grown up they spread their wings and fly their own way.
Manie, a fine young man wowed Ruchelle’s heart with not too much resistance and havoc from the family as I guess they knew he would only be a gem added to the total collection.
Their wedding was a lovely celebration in the heart of the Swartland at the beautiful wedding venue Laatson.
I was also blessed to experience their live engagement shoot as Manie asked me to photograph the whole awesomeness of it on Signal Hill. He surprised Ruchelle with a picnic and then gone down on his knees as the sun were setting, you can view their engagement shoot here.
I would like to make use of this post to thank Manie and Ruchelle for the privilege to capture their beautiful day.
I would like to thank my best friend, the most handsome guy in the whole world and the only person who are willing to tolerate all my nonsense. Thank you Derik for helping me with this shoot, having you on my side during this shoot for the first time since we had kids, I just realize how awesome we are together… I loved it…
