Some of my 2016 highlights…

The best thing about 2016 is definitely that I got engaged to the most beautiful person in my life… my best friend & business partner, Werner, in Barcelona, Spain !!!! We’ve ‘been together for more than 8 years, photographed 175+ weddings since we started our business in 2009 ( www.picturemeandu.com ) & in 2017 it’s FINALLY our turn to ‘tie the knot’ & throw 1 hell of a wedding with all the ones we carry close to our hearts !!!! #wmbothabruilof

Werner made this little video announcement for us just after he proposed… he made homemade enchiladas & we drank Spanish champagne on a rooftop in Barcelona!

 

We travelled to Europe for a month… Barcelona ( Spain ), Paris ( France ) & Amsterdam ( Holland ) & came back broke… it was worth it!! Also documented a Picture me&u wedding in the countryside of France ( Hendaye… a little coastal town on the border of Spain & France )

We had a really lovely family holiday in Kwazulu-Natal. Times like these I treasure even more as I get older!

 

Worked on a passion project with a friend… Created a beautiful feminine range that we named Blooming Blushes… a handmade range of undies & nighties, cute beach dresses & accessories! Loved doing this fun project & sharing it with our clients at a market.  

My first little retail shop in Pretoria celebrated its 1st birthday !!! I’ve been wanting to share some pics from the day we opened! 

Picture me&u were invited by Finesse magazine to document the #netmatrieks boat cruise on board the MSC cruise ship! We spent 5 days & 4 nights sailing the ocean, passing by Maputo ( Mozambique ) & spending a day on a Portuguese Island. If you haven’t ‘been on board the MSC… you should totally add it to your bucket list for the future!

I designed & launched the first M.studio BEAUTIFUL LIFE PLANNER! This is my biggest product development project for M.studio up to now & I am so excited about the future of this product. I know this M.studio tool will help you plan to live your most beautiful life too! 

A Reminder to be grateful for every experience, person encountered & memory made! Here’s to many many many more!
