Namibian Windhoek Wedding – Amore and Schalk

It is always such an enormous honour when a client is willing to fly me across borders to capture the memories of their wedding. Amore and Schalk are a couple who are incredibly close to their families and so it was important for them to have all the moments of their wedding documented and that’s why they got hold of me! My favourite thing about shooting weddings is photographing people. I love watching grannies hugging their grandkids, I love seeing the kids doing things that only kids do, I love watching the grooms face as he sees his bride for the first time and I love seeing the look in parents eyes as they witness a huge milestone in their babies lives. Weddings are about so much more than decor and dresses to me, they are about human interaction, love and hope.

Amore and Schalk got married in Windhoek, Namibia and celebrated at the Safari Lodge Hotel. It was our first visit to Windhoek and I learnt that the Namibians love a party! I was also struck by how friendly, hospitable and generous all those involved were. These are salt of the earth folk with big hearts and big dance moves!

Huge thanks to you Amore and Schalk for picking me and for flying us all the way out there to capture something so special. I so loved being immersed in your love and your loved ones. Good luck for your new life together and send us pics when you hit the Amazon!!!
