Mark & Chandré

Kalk Bay Engagement Shoot | Cape Town

I don’t think anyone can deny the fact that these two love each other! They are so cute together and every time I go through these photos, I end up with a huge smile on my face!

Their Story

Mark and I grew up in the same town and have known each other since our school days. Following our respective journeys during which Mark went to Cape Town and Sweden to study and I attended Stellenbosch University, we met up again.

Despite out intentions of meeting for a friendly dinner, the connection between us was undeniable and the relationship progressed very quickly from there. Six years later, following nine months of secret ring designing and creation, he proposed.

The proposal

It took place on a usually secluded beach in Cape Agulhas, however the weather that day happened to be remarkably good, prompting many a fishing expedition by the locals and consequently rendering the beach less secluded. Unbeknownst to me that a ring was hiding amongst our beach faring gear, I had a lovely time in the sea. Following several hours of beach frolicking, and sun tanning the fisherman eventually seemed to dissipate and Mark took the opportunity to finally ask the big question. It turned out to be the perfect day.
