Didima Drakensburg Wedding – Cath + GP

The first time I met GianPiero he was wearing a cookie monster suit in the middle of the desert. This was my first ever Afrika Burn and I took a fond liking to GP as he is known by his friends. He is one of those highly intelligent types with a sharp wit and hilarious sense of humor. He loves deep conversations and ridiculous conversations but most of all he loves his Panda Bear known to most at Cath. Cath has a little girl voice with the sweetest American accent. She cares about humanity and puts other peoples needs’ above her own. She has a kind heart and a beautiful spirit. Cath is a lawyer and I believe she is a good mind match for GP. He says that she is the best person he has ever known and I believe it.

They got married at Didima in the Drakensberg mountains and it was one of the most memorable weddings I have been to. This may have something to do with the fact that I adore these two and most of the guest list but it was also because there was an authenticity to their wedding that was just so them. These two have climbed many an obstacle together and have come through on the other side stronger and this is why the pic of them running down the mountain hand in hand, storm at their backs with smiles on their faces might be one of my all time favorites.

Love you guys! Thanks so much for picking me to capture this very special day for you. It really has been a joy to make these images for you.
