Lindie and Hendrik tied the knot on April and I hope these pics will delight with the same amount of fun as it was to capture the images of this stunning couple! It happened in the Rawsonville surroundings at the Trout Haven in Dwarsberg, gorgeous area.

The strange and complicated irony of life. So today I was feeling good on my way to a Pick-n-Pay I saw a beggar sitting against the wall, white guy, nothing unusual nowadays, and I always feel sorry for them, although I wont show it and will chase them away, today I found myself feeling very empathic, so I decided to buy him some food to give to him when I come out and wouldnt you know, when I got outside he was gone!

I even went looking for him but could’nt find him and I felt sad, knowing how he must feel, not allowed inside the Pick-n-Pay, resentment, bitterness and sadness and here comes a stranger wanting to help but he missed that opportunity, or maybe I missed it, maybe it was my lesson, I don’t know yet but I still feel bad.

Although I have helped so many people like this before and in other ways I never tell anyone about it. Like I’ve never told anyone that I shoot at least one wedding a year completely pro bono! This year I feel like I might just surprise someone with that news, hopefully they will be getting married somewhere very exotic! Hawaii, New York, Tokyo, Paris, Maldives and Rome comes to mind ๐Ÿ™‚ This previous post come to mind.

Have a great week everyone!

Last year I shot some covers for Finesse Magazine, unfortunately I dont have the final cover designs with the text and overlays, so in the mean time I can only show the un-cover-edited versions. Please do enjoy this behind the scenes look.

For one of the shoots I had the opportunity to work with the amazing Anna-Mart van der Merwe. En so slaan ek oor na afrikaans. Sy het haar voete nou so plat op die aarde soos wat mens kan kry! Letterlik! Syt omtrent heeldag lekker kaalvoet rondgeloop en selfs toe ons n krisus beleef het met n vreeslike verstuiting van die grimmering girl se enkel het sy hand bygesit om te help. So down to earth soos wat mens kan kry en boonop nog beeldskoon en talentvol!

Het jou katvis! Hier is ek lekker uitgevang. Dis wat fotograwe eintlik doen op n shoot ๐Ÿ™‚

Anna-Mart is al sedert die 90’s besig om haar tyd te spandeer met kinders van Die Downsyndrome Vereniging van Suid Afrika. Sy is hul beskermvrou en dit bring haar groot vreugde om vir hulle vreugde te bring, amazing!

Arme Melissa het met gebreekte pooitjie en al aangegaan met werk, what a trooper!

Almal wil model speel, van my assistent Taryn tot Annelize ๐Ÿ™‚

En daar is ek ook! Wat n vreugde volle dag van harde werk.

The location was The Three Boutique Hotel
Styling: Annelize Opperman
Makeup: Melissa van Zyl
Assistant: Taryn Ward

As seen in the November 2011 issue of Finesse

    Melissa van Zyl - Ag dis fantasies, Ek sal dit love as jy dit vir my sal aanstuur net soos dit is – sal dit so love om hierdie experience te kan koester! What a special day – love it love it!

    Du Wayne Denton - Awesome Photos Eric. You captured the essence of her personality.

I had some time and thought I would play around with a photo I took of one in a parking lot. Cleaned up the lines and added a new background. Took way longer that I thought it would but it sure was fun!

For the curios ones, here is what the shot looked like before I started editing it ๐Ÿ™‚

Carlo and Lianne recently tied the knot in Franschoek! Congratulations to you guys, it was such a beautiful day!
