Its been a crazy first few months of 2015 in my home as we received numerous emails on different types of photoshoots. Weddings are my main game as I was thrown out of my comfort zone with shoots of resorts, product shoots and my most daunting, teaching photography to kids in front of a class of 32. We tend to rationalize that we are going to be rusty when we return to what we are good at but its exactly the opposite. We see with a different eye a total new way of looking at our environment. It teaches us to be more creative and confident than before. I loved shooting this wedding of Detlev and Rianè. Capturing weddings as a story is not as easy as we think and surely there are moments we miss but what I love about these weddings are they become more real when life throws us challenges. Like the challenge of forgetting the rings and finding out that is was never forgotten in the first place makes life so interesting and creates so much space for laughter and a story that would be told to friends family and children. Thank you for sharing that with me and my good friend and second shooter Etienne Fourie(go check out his website). We revel in the realness of stories, especially a wedding celebration. May God strengthen your relationship through His truth and His grace and may Christ always reminds you of how important the person is next to you. enjoy their lovely day at the Rose barn – Ludwig’s Roses.
