Louis & Ilze – Autumn Love | Pretoria Engagement Shoot

May 13, 2012

Louis and Ilze had a bit of bad luck with weather – we had to postpone their couple session twice due to rain,but I really think it actually worked out for the best.  Two things happened that in my mind changed this session into a magical one – firstly a good photographer friend of mine shared a beautiful location she recently did a shoot at, and secondly…well…the season changed and blessed us with lovely autumn colours.  Oh – and as if we weren’t lucky enough with a clear crisp morning, a light fog drifted into the trees while we were shooting, and enveloped everything in soft filtered light – I was ooohhhiing and aaahhiing the entire time!

Louis and Ilze are two very special people and it was so lovely spending the morning with them.  Their warmth and love for each other is just so apparent and I love how they laugh together – they made me smile to myself in the car all the way back home!  I really cannot wait to shoot their wedding in October and I feel absolutely thankful and excited at the opportunity.

They are also a very resourceful and creative couple, and brought an antique-looking bench with, as well as champagne and glasses and had some bubbly in celebration.  If I didn’t have another session following theirs I might have toasted with them!!

My wish for you, Louis and Ilze is that every day will be as magical as our morning under the trees – I hope you enjoy your photos!
