Fred & Izel {Engagement}

In 2013 I had the opportunity to meet and work alongside many photographers that I had been following via social media and their blogs – one such photographer was Izelle Labuschagne. I drove out to meet her at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort on a blistering hot afternoon in November. I remember it was so hot because my car’s aircon is broken and I took a freezer block and 2 frozen water bottles with to make sure that I didn’t die of heat, by the time I was halfway there my water had already started melting so much that I was worried I wouldn’t have anything cold to drink on my way home!

Despite the heat I was excited to not only meet Izelle and photograph a couple in love, but also to see the gardens that I’d never been to before. I zelle and I met up outside the entrance and we quickly introduced ourselves and started chatting about how we got into photography. After a little while Fred & Izel arrived and the fun started…

Right away I could tell that both Fred & Izel are very down to earth, relaxed people – and as you can see by the way they look at each other, they are very much smitten with each other.

A huge thanks to Izelle for letting me assist! Click here if you’d like to see the official photos of their e-session and here for the photos of their wedding (also photographed by Iz Photography)
