These are our very good friends Martin & Judy. They got engaged at the top of Kilimanjaro at the beginning of the year and are getting married next year January. A few weeks ago we drove up to Limpopo to scout out some cool non-wedding venue places to get married and I think they've settled on this place in Haenertsburg, Limpopo. While we were there, we stayed at a beautiful log cabin on Stanford Lake, and decided to squeeze in a little impromptu engagement shoot. I fashioned Judy a little flower crown out of an arrangement I found in the cabin and we headed into the woods. I think it turned out quite nicely. The light was beautiful on the lake, Judy serenaded our photo taking on her Ukulele (you gotta here them sing and play together! It's Magic!) and we ended off the night at the Pot & Plough for pizza (The only place to eat if you're in and around Haenertsburg. It was also a tasting of sorts as I think they're going use them to cater their wedding).

If it's okay with you guys I'd like to put a little bit more of my photography work here, just a small handful of pictures from each shoot which I really loved. I promise that EJN won't become a wedding blog, just a few favourite stills about once a week. Is that alright?
These are from one of the prettiest, most detailed weddings we've ever shot at Arts on Main (one of our favourite venues to shoot at). The theme was old school botanical and the details were lovely and so different to any other wedding we've been to.
They also had the coolest photo booth. It was just tons of beautiful botanical prints stuck together and a square of astro turf to stand on (we took it around the city with us when we did the couple shoot and it made for a lot of fun photos).

We shot the most lovely wedding on Saturday and I was reminded again how much I love love and how much I love what I do. I never dreamed I'd be doing this almost pretty much full time and enjoying it as much as I am, it's like a really awesome surprise.
I won't lie the transition stage has definitely had it's challenges - getting set up, overcoming obstacles and making scary decisions.. but it's definitely been worth it. I don't regret anything at all (so far at least). ; )
If you're thinking about making a jump from having a boss to going freelance consider this as a sign and a push of encouragement. You can do it, and in the small chance it doesn't work out there will always be a desk job with your name on it.

I loved shooting this beautiful modern farm wedding out in Heidelberg. I also just loved how in love these two were. They made our job so easy.

Jessica Hische is one of my design heroes. She is an illustrator and incredible typographer (is that word?), and happened to be one of the key speakers of last weeks Design Indaba (which I was lucky enough to attend). I just discovered her beautiful wedding pictures by the talented Kristen Marie, and yes there are a lot of awesome design elements to swoon over!
I particularly love her 'type' tattoo, and all the Tattly tattoo's they had for their guests (You've got to check these out, they're designer temporary tattoos and they look flipping cool as wedding favours).

We've just finished our second double wedding weekend for the month. That's 2 x weddings in one weekend.
This last weekend was actually pretty much a triple if you count the Mendhi celebration on Friday night. Phew. It was exhausting yet so beautiful and incredibly rewarding.
We've been so lucky to play a small role in capturing such incredible stories. The Friday/Saturday wedding was of a friend of ours, a white South African girl marrying a handsome Indian boy. The amalgamation of cultures was an absolutely amazing thing to see. We were part of the Mendhi which was probably the biggest best party ever - a lot of food and a lot of dancing! We then went on to capture the white wedding the next day which was also one of the most special weddings i've witnessed. Think henna covered feet peeking out beneath vintage english lace.
I could go on and on about it, but will save it for the wedding post.
It's strange, but i've never considered myself to be a photographer until recently. I've had no formal training, I don't even know how we ended up shooting so many weddings but i'm so grateful we are where we are, and i'm looking forward to all that next year will bring us and will take us to.
One man who constantly challenges me and who sets the bar pretty high in wedding photography is Jonas Peterson. He is one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world, he shoots in the most incredible locations all around the world and he is just SO good at it. His photographs are so full of life and real moments, here is one of his latest weddings, shot in Sweden.

A few snap shots of the wedding we photographed on saturday.
We had a proper Highveld storm but it cleared up so beautifully for photographs. Will do a full post of the day on Lad & Lass by the end of the week.
