Odelia and Johan

Let's take a closer look at Odelia and Johan's engagement session captured by Katie Mathew Photography.


How did you meet? Where did the magic begin?

We worked together and became very close friends. So close that we just clicked and fell in love.

How long have you been dating?

December we will be dating for 8 years.

How would you describe yourselves?

Indoors and outdoors people, love to be surrounded with family and friends but also like to spend time alone. Very talkative at time and enjoy meeting new people and always open for new adventures.

Tell us about the proposal

We talked about getting married for a long time and always moved it to "next year and next year". So this year January he just told me he'll be back home. After an hour, he came back and made me sit on the couch and proposed - it was so cute!

Why and how did you decide on an engagement shoot?

Katie had a Valentine's competition running and I entered. We were so lucky to be one of the winners.

Where did you shoot your engagement and how is the location linked to you?

We had our engagement shoot at Lourensford Wine Estate. Its one of the places we love to go have breakfast and just enjoy a beautiful day. It's also close to where we live.

What is the theme of your engagement shoot or what was it inspired by?

We did a garden type of shoot. Forest-like with lots of greenery.

Who chose your ring?

Johan did

Are you making use of a wedding planner or are you planning your wedding all on your own?

My mum in-law was my planner. She assisted me.
