Maarten & Mari - E Shoot - Paarl, Western Cape

So we headed for a destination unknown. And at the end of the day, these two made it their own.

Maarten and Mari have this “dirty dancing, pick me up and squeeze me” kind of love.

They share that secretive but ‘Oh so obvious’ besotted over one another smile with the world. And I was lucky enough to be a part of this.

As we headed up an unfamiliar dirt road, me bolting ahead trying to avoid numerous species of thorns while chasing light and looking over my shoulder to see if these two were keeping up with my antics, I quickly came to a complete halt when I realised Maarten and Mari were enjoying one another’s presence in my absence.

PERFECT!! This was the moment to start clicking away… with the end result as follows;

Thank you guys, thank you for letting me be a part of this special time in your lives. May you be blessed with all the giggles, squeezes and inside jokes possibly imagined! And may Maarten kiss with his eyes open all he wants. (Yes Mari and I gave him grief about this, it is kind of funny)

Looking forward to your wedding day!!
