Theunis and Linde
I had the opportunity to take some pictures to this beautiful couple Theunis and Linde for their engagement photo shoot at Holden Manz Wine Farm in the valley of Franschhoek surrounded by vineyards and plum orchards, with a spectacular mountain backdrop, breath-taking views of the undulating countryside and an atmosphere of complete tranquility.
It was a surprise for Linde of course she was not aware of what Theunis had in mind and she didn’t know about the photographer taking pictures of this special moment! I was hiding in the picnic area of Holden Manz Wine Farm.
Arriving at our Franschhoek Kitchen Theunis and Linde collected their picnic baskets and after a short saunter through the vineyards the arrived at the gurgling river where all you hear are the birds singing and the sunlight melts the day into enchanting flavours and beautiful moments…

Lot of fun lot of wine what else? The Chocolate Block
The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend – it’s even launched a graphic novel (see here). While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of the wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality.

Benedene and Aldrich Wedding Sneak Peek
A wonderful “rustic wedding” at Rondekuil Farm in Durbanville positioned amongst rolling hills with breath-taking views of the Boland Mountain Ranges and Table Mountain.
This was a very special wedding for me, I met Benedene and Aldrich during a Corporate photo shoot at Clarity Diamonds in Cape Town and they fell “in love” with my style and so I am very proud of the opportunity they gave me to shoot their special day!
Thank you and all the best for the future!
