Noordhoek Beach Engagement
Lucy & Ruan
Ah, the excitement and fun of this Noordhoek Beach engagement shoot. Excitement, as we finally got to meet the lovely Lucy and Ruan after months of only email communication. And fun, because that’s just what these two are. Ruan, especially, is like a wind up bunny and his energy is absolutely infectious! And more excitement knowing that in February next year, these two will be in front of our lenses again on their wedding day! We cannot wait!
Ruan moved over to the UK quite a number of years ago. He found himself a beautiful English rose in the form of Lucy. These two come to South Africa quite regularly on holiday as Ruan’s family are still here. And when they are in Cape Town, they always like to spend time on their favourite Noordhoek Beach. And so it was that they chose this spot for their engagement shoot.
It was so lovely getting to know Lucy and Ruan during their engagement shoot. After just an hour, it felt like we were old friends.The two of them are so comfortable in each other’s presence, and it’s clear they are just made for each other. Super fun and full of smiles! We love couples who are just ‘themselves’ during a shoot. It makes their personalities shine. Not much direction was needed at all! The best part was that they did not mind getting wet. And mind you, the chilly wind and cold Atlantic Ocean gave them a real go for their money! I think numb toes were the order of the day all round when we were done!
Thank you Minke du Plessis for the gorgeous job with the make-up, we look forward to working with you again on their wedding day.
Lucy and Ruan, we loved photographing your Noordhoek Beach engagement shoot. You are such a cute couple! We are so looking forward to your wedding day next year. See you soon!
