South Africa-based wedding and portrait photographer Ruan Redelinghuys captured this loving moment between Luxembourg couple Rohan and Jennifer during their recent vacation. It was during their stop at South Africa’s Robberg Nature Reserve in Plettenberg Bay, an area filled with indigenous fynbos (fine-leaved plants) and large rock formations, where this warm embrace was captured. Says Redelinghuys, the environment surrounding the couple “is almost untouched.”

It’s the extra details–light, location, intimacy and composition–that makes this image particularly special, the photographer adds. “The contrast [between the busy foliage and quiet moment] was captured to create a unique take on a location that is generally photographed to show every detail of the landscape.” It also showcases a special moment for the couple, who had been partaking in various adventures on their vacations, including surfing and hiking. According to Redelinghuys, it was meaningful to capture them in what he describes as “a moment of quiet.”
