Leana 21st, West Coast sunset yacht cruise.

October 25, 2015

The West Coast of South Africa is an awesome setting for love. Romantic sunsets, beautiful beaches and glorious people. Leana Botes is one of these glorious people and she invited me to paint the story of her 21st birthday. Before the party started, Leana’s grandma, sister and brother joined her for a few portraits along the beautiful walk ways for Club Mykonos. On the beach her friends and their partners joined in the fun and we captured golden hour memories. Young love is such a beautiful and contagious thing. Leana and her sweetheart, Ruan, simply glowed with the giddy, spontaneous love of young lovers. Leana lives in the lovely town of Wellington, in the Boland, where Leana plans to complete her studies to become a teacher.

Time quickly ran out and we had to join the other guests for the main attraction: a yacht ride with elitecharters in the lagoon of Langebaan. Even though the wind was wild and chilly, the party was hot and happening. We decided to face the wind head on and ventured onto the front of the deck. Our endeavor was rewarded with moments of two lovers snuggling warm and in love.
Leana, thank you very much for allowing me to join you on this special day. I hope my images conveys the story of the memorable day and your bubbling personality. Enjoy! xx
