Annika and Quinten’s Couple Session
Annika and Quintin have known each other for a few years, but about a year and 9 months ago cupid did his thing and these two fell hopelessly in love. On the 18th of January this year, Quinten went down on one knee and popped the question. Of course Annika said yes – congratulations Annika and Quinten.
I ran a valentine’s day competition on Facebook with Leandri (one of the best hair and makeup artists I know) and Maxine from Forever After (a very talented dress designer) to celebrate Love Month. The competition was a huge success with over 300 entries. Thank you to everyone that entered (unfortunately there could only be one winner).
A live draw was done on Facebook (if you missed the video – click here) and the winning couple was Annika and Quinten.
The photoshoot was meant to take place on Valentines Day, but unfortunately Quinten was away on important business (fishing LOL). A new date was agreed on.
The day arrived – I think it was the hottest day of February – it was a scorching 28 degrees added with the humidity – I think it was around 35 degrees. I met up with Annika at Leandri’s salon – Leandri had done a fantastic work and Annika was ready to get changed into her designer dress from Forever After. Annika looked amazing in the dress and when quintin walked out, he look dashing – don’t you think so???? I was super excited for the shoot.
Shelly Beach was the chosen location – I did not want anything to take away from this couple – I wanted the images about them and not their surroundings.
The afternoon was fun but it became overcast as the afternoon progressed – the day had been too hot and a thunderstorm was expected. As a result, we missed the sunset.
What an amazing couple. Thanks Annika and Quinten for allowing me to create these memories for you. I had an amazing time. People have asked where I got these models from……LOL.
