Although I am not a mum, I understand how precious the time with little ones is, especially as they grow up and change so quickly!  When I saw Chantell`s photos, I was spellbound and blown away by her incredible talent. I  felt honoured as I was able to share treasured and exciting moments in her…

Bursts of pinks, lace, candles and Stellenbosch, what could be more romantic!  Marzelle and Gus are not new to `i am captivated`  as you may remember their desert engagement photos.  They tied the knot surrounded by their family and friends at the beautiful Nooitgedacht Estate.  There is just something so peaceful and dreamy about getting married…

How special to have beautiful baby Evalit on ‘i am captivated’.  She is growing up quickly, bringing her mum and dad lots of joy.  I am privileged to know the Black family and was very excited when Cindy sent me these photographs by Celeste van Rooyen.  Cindy and John only had positive things to say…
