Ezel & Duane Vermeulen | Val de Vie



How would you describe your best year ever?  What about a year like Duane Vermeulen had.  Currie Cup winner, selected to play for the Springboks during The Rugby Championship and the end of the year tour to the UK.  Man of the match for the game against England. To top a great year, he got married to Ezel.  Of all the great things in 2012, this was the best HIGHLIGHT for his year!   Ezel and Duane got married at Franchhoek and had their reception at the very beautiful and luxurious Val de Vie Estate.

My daughter is almost 3 years old and we are busy teaching her the different days of the week.  When we come to Saturday, we ask her what we normally do on Saturdays, her reply is always.  “Pappa gaan troue toe”.  And then I ask her, if not going to weddings, what do we do then.  She will then answer:  “ons kyk rugby”.  It was so great to combine 2 things I love (rugby and photography).









This wedding was also covered by Top Billing.  

Here is the feature that were showed on SABC 3 on 18 December 2012.

 I think that if wedding photography doesn't work out for me anymore, I should try my luck at Polo action photos :-)  What do you think?











 The rugby guys wanted to do a shot like this...  Duane going HIGH..












 I didn't mention the WIND in my opening paragraph.  But have to just say this - this is my 3rd shoot I've done with Duane and Ezel, and all 3 times the wind was really blowing.  I guess that is just part of taking photos of a STORMERS rugby player ;-)
