Living where I do in the Lowveld affords me many opportunities to shoot the most beautiful weddings. Dramatic scenic backdrops, magnificent chapels and churches, lush natural landscape and wide open skies are usually where I present my strong suit. As a photographer I find that weddings are my bread and butter, next to corporate photography. I enjoy it mostly because of the routine and how it allows me to bend the rules a little to make each one that I shoot unique in it’s own right. Finding that special something in each couple and location is what I’m really good at and I find that people are much more open to expression when they are a part of the creative process.
I make of point of meeting all of my couples before their wedding at least twice to discuss the ideas, the plans and how things will unfold on the day. This of course doesn’t always stop the chaos from ensuing, as any seasoned wedding photographer will tell you. But it is nice to break the ice with people and get to see them in the comfort zones before jumping into something as important as a wedding ceremony and reception.
This image was shot at Casa do Sol, a beautiful hotel hidden away in the bush halfway between Hazyview and Sabie. The sunset was truly on our side that afternoon and the romance between the bride and groom was like something out of a Jane Austin novel.
