Rich Ting popped the question in Cape Town.

Rich & Angela

Rich Ting might sound familiar to you and you might recognize him from quite a few successful drama series like NCIS and Waco.  Also from movies like Lone Survivor and SALT.
On a recent trip to South Africa to film the new drama series Warrior – a series inspired by Bruce Lee, Rich brought his darling Angela with him to Cape Town.  It was with splendid mountain and ocean views in the backdrop where Rich went down on one knee and popped the question to the unsuspecting Angela.

A few weeks later they decided to get a few portraits to celebrate this beautiful event in their lives.

Cape Town Engagement – Anje & Chris

Anje & Chris

~A Seagull’s Song.

 

At the start of a brisk and fast paced week, Anje sent me a message; “Landi, we will be in Cape Town for 2 days, can we please fit in an engagement session?”
With all my evening slots already booked for the week, I knew that we will have to make a plan.  We met at 6:15am at the V&A Waterfront.  The morning was still waking up from the crisp and cool night air.  Seagulls were circling and crying their morning hunger cries at the fishing boats.  And in the distance we could hear the city traffic starting to awake.

Anje & Chris are both extremely talented photographers themselves, and when they contacted me to be their wedding photographer, I felt insanely proud and honoured.  We had copious amounts of fun during this session. From waving good morning to the resident seals, to chasing the sun, to chasing pigeons, to trying in vane to get the attention of the ever so noisy and hungry seagulls.

I hope you enjoy their visual story below:

Riaan & Mardené

– A Thirsty Chapter.

It’s dry.  When the sun is not scorching the earth and licking up the last bit of moisture with its flaming tongues of thirst, it is the wind that evaporates any traces of water in to thin air.
This is what the Western Cape is currently facing.  With none of the regular lush green landscapes we are used to, we are now learning to find the beauty in what we once saw as devastation.
The dry, sandy banks of dried up reservoirs have become art.  We see the bittersweet beauty of white dust reflecting the pink sky.  A world transformed.  A reminder that love will conquer our deepest fears.  Love can florish where we plant it – we just need to believe.  Here follows a story:

Ceres Mountain Engagement

Ceres Mountain Engagement

A Ceres Mountain Engagement.
Have you ever visited the Ceres valley? Nestled between the most beautiful, magnificent mountains, this farm community is sure to inspire any creative driving through.
I met Justin & Mari on the family farm, right at the foot of these mountains.  I felt so easy and at home, reminding me of my own childhood as a farm girl.  Sheep and their lambs were calling each other, and a few calves also completed the picture.

Mari welcomed me with a delicious cup of Rooibos tea, telling me more about her and Justin.  The big farm house with it’s Delft plates, long hallways and wooden floors is the house you picture in your imagination when reading old novels set in the Old Cape.

Soon after our cups of tea, we set out to explore the farm and capture beautiful imagery of their love.

 

Justin & Mari – thank you for welcoming me in to spending a day in your lives.

Newlands Forest Engagement

Jacques & Joadri Forest Engagement.

A Cape Town Forest Engagement.
It was a beautiful, windless day in Cape Town.  One of those rare gems.  I thoroughly enjoyed this day – spending it with the sweetest couple exploring one of the most beautiful forests Cape Town has to offer.  This location by far tops my list of favourites and once again it proved why.  Afterwards we made our way over to the V&A Waterfront where we were entertained by some cheeky seagulls and cocktails.

The V&A Waterfront is one of Cape Town’s proud settings, where locals, tourists and businesses come together to hear beautiful local sounds and music.  With a zest of authentic foods and smells, this is a perfect example of our rainbow nation.
