I have been seriously excited to blog this post as there is something really amazing about photographing a friends wedding. In my experience the pics just land up having an honesty and an edge to them which must be attributed to there being a mutual understanding and comfort between subject and photographer.
Its exhausting being me sometimes, my mind never stops, in fact it is like a busy airport. I wish I was one of those calm, zen like people who can meditate. I really love the Buddhist concept of mindfulness and bringing oneself into the present and the ordinary.
Jacques and Krystle got married at the Methodist Church in Durban North (see part one here) and then went on to celebrate in style at the Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga. I love shooting at this venue as not only is it only a ten minute drive home from my bed it is also incredibly beautiful. I am a big fan of beautiful spaces!! Throw a beautiful couple into the mix who also happen to be great fun and super sweet and I am one happy photographer!
During the course of Krystle’s big day she must have said the word gorg (ie short for gorgeous) at least 100 times …. and that is exactly how she looked … Gorg!
Holly is only 15 years old and she is already releasing her second album!!! The first time I heard her perform I actually got a lump in my throat and a wee tear in my eye. This girl can sing I tell you!!! Her music is an interesting mix of mature conscious lyrics, funky beats, beautiful melodies and African undertones all thrown together with her AMAZING singing voice.
