This was my very first wedding that I did last year October. It was a real bushveld wedding in South Africa. We got beautiful photos on the day of the wedding but I felt I wanted more for them. They then agreed to get up 4h30 the next morning after the wedding for a sunrise shoot. They only had 2 hours sleep. We got the most beautiful sunrise shots and they were over the moon!
Finding the beauty around me is why I love photography. To capture a moment that is unexpected and vulnerable. I had the opportunity to assist another photographer at 3 weddings last year before I did my first solo wedding October 2016 The excitement of the bride, the awe and tears in the grooms eye and the emotion of the brides dad when they see her in her dress. The beauty of landscapes, the power of the sea, the majestic brilliance of a mountain, and the story on a face and the sheer stealth in a lions stare. This is why I love photography and to capture these type of moments!
