A small town in the Eastern Cape, an orange orchard and two people so in love that they completely outshone the natural beauty around them! This was the makings of our Orange Orchard Engagement shoot.
Hands down this is the most wonderful creative collaboration I have been part of to date. We had SO much fun setting up this playful engagement picnic in one of Patensie’s many orange groves. The colours around us where bouncing off each other! The blue of the sky, the green of the trees and the oranges dancing with the hot pink streamers were just electric!
Courtney is a self-proclaimed earth child and fitted into the orchard like a little tree fairy. Angelo’s excitement was tangible as he got to ask his love to marry him again. (They got engaged ‘for real’s’ just weeks before this) Angelo had us in stitches as he kept proclaiming this “the best day ever!” You know I cant help but agree with him.
It is magical how one row of orange trees amongst an entire orchard can become a different world. It was like time stopped and for one afternoon there were only two people on earth. Two people who love each other fiercely. A love like theirs and the ability to celebrate their engagement in this way is why Runaway Romance is.
So Courtney and Angelo….Thank you!
This day was effervescent, overflowing and incredibly fun from start to finish… See how the day unfolded in this beautiful video and then go and enjoy every delicious detail in the photos!
