If there is one thing I utterly believe in, is that sometimes the thing or person you are looking for, is right in the same room with you – but the universe will not reveal it until the time is right! And this is absolutely true for Janet & Shaam – their love story had them crossing paths long before they met! Ok ok, let me backtrack a bit here. Janet & Shaam met at a mutual friend’s braai, but as they started talking, they discovered they attended the same events, and even the same party and never laid eyes on each other until that fated braai!
As they talked, and talked, and talked some more, it was ultimately Shaam’s cooking and Janet’s smile that made them realize that they didn’t want to be without each other, and almost a year after having asked Janet’s father permission to marry his daughter, Shaam went on one knee on Christmas morning at their Hout Bay home.
The couple decided to settle down in Hout Bay (who can blame them – it is the most gorgeous town!) and love everything about living there, so when the time came to choose a location for their Connection Session, the choice was easily made – these photos had to capture not only the love they have for each other but also the love they have for their “home” town.
I am so excited to be capturing their wedding next month, as I am sure it will encapsulate everything beautiful about their love story.
A big thank you to RMSCaptured for assisting me with this shoot!
