Chris + Yani couple shoot | Boschendal

In December I got to meet this lovely couple! They were NEWLY engaged and so smitten with each other during the shoot and it was so great to get to capture those moments :) 

Yani and Chris currently live in Miami, USA, and Chris is originally from South Africa. They came on a family holiday with Yani's parents to South Africa and met up with Chris's folks and then toured the country. Chris finally popped the question when he and Yani had a private moment on top of Table Mountain and the family joined in after to celebrate their engagement!!

Kudos to Yani and Chris for organising an engagement shoot on such short notice and getting hair and make-up and outfits - and I was happy to help! They wanted to do the shoot on a wine farm in Cape Town with old Cape Dutch buildings and vineyards as you don't see anything like that around Miami and its part of Chris's South African background so it just made sense, so after much research - as most of the wine farms had weddings on around the time - we were able to do the shoot at Boschendal Wine Estate, Franschhoek.

We were spoilt for choice with gorgeous scenery and a beautiful hot Summers day! Yani and Chris took advantage of some wine tasting during the shoot and we all talked for ages. These two are so easy to get along with!

Yani and Chris left for home the day after the shoot, I was kind of sad that they were leaving as we just got to know each other and they are such a sweet and awesome couple!

Enjoy the pics :)
