We were so excited to capture the special wedding celebration of Stephan + Annika on their family farm in Chrissiesmeer. The last time we were on their farm was when we did the engagement shoot and it was winter so we could not wait to see what had transpired and see all their ideas finally materialize. We arrived the night before and enjoyed the last evening with the couple before the big day. Meeting couples over the years you tend to follow their ways of living and the way they respond to you by spending time with them sometimes before a wedding or after a wedding. A deeper story unfolds when conversations are turned into sharing their iniquities and joys with you. Getting to have known this family was a great priveledge for me and Lisa. It was a special day because of what we knew about Stephan & Annika just warmed our emotions. I was just gobbed smacked when I saw the hard work that went into preparing this farm for the big wedding. The friends who helped with a smile on their faces and the love between the family and guests was a true feeling of gratitude. Speeches that carried so much emotion that myself and Lisa could not help but cry along. A perfect day with rain, sunshine, cool weather and sterristumpies plus a soft serve bus(the volkswagen one)! “How can you share in someone’s joy when you haven’t heard their story my father told me so many times and so many times have I seen the truth of those words through my lens. Thank you Oom Jan and tannie Linda for your kindness(we fell in love with you) and for letting us take unforgettable images on your lovely farm. To Stephan and Annika our new friends. All we can really say is Praise Our Heavenly Father for His Grace. Genade onberskryflik groot! May you both grow with the truth towards God’s Will and may your love for one another be unshaken by this world and be shaped into a strong relationship grounded in His Word. We present Mr and Mrs Scholtz.
