I was so excited when Marinda May asked me if I could assist her with this engagement shoot. We’d met before over coffee but I didn’t really know what to expect when I got to Jan Cilliers Park that day… I was pretty nervous seeing as this was my first time assisting her as well as my very first time shooting with my new Canon 5D MKii (happy dance).
When I got to the park we got right into it. Marinda said that I could hang back and take a few photos when I wasn’t holding a reflector or supporting her on a ladder, so I gladly took the opportunity.
Janine & Gil were such an easy couple to photograph. Gil is one of those people that are just naturally funny, and you can see that Janine makes him even happier. He was constantly cracking jokes or whispering sweet nothings in Janine’s ear that made her laugh.
I LOVE the way Gil looks at Janine – you can just see that he loves and accepts her wholeheartedly
Janine’s ring is just incredible!
A huge thanks to Marinda for letting me help her out. For the official engagement photos hop on over to her blog here
Janine & Gil – I wish you all the best for your future. A very long and incredibly happy marriage for many many years to come 🙂
