Stephanie & Sershan

The collection of my shoot with the lovely Stephanie & Sershan. They decided to go for the unconventional method on their Wedding day! So we met up in the beautiful Pretoria Botanical Gardens, 31 Dec, before they headed for the courthouse to start 2017 as a married couple! Both having lost their Fathers in earlier years felt that the images of them holding their parents wedding days was a great way to have them there on theirs! I think it was a lovely thing to do and am most happy to have captured it! Many blessings for their future together!

“People will stare, make it worth their while!” – H. Winston

A lot of woman will shy from an image like this, saying it doesn’t look like them or ‘wow, is That me?’ and the answer is YES! Woman find it hard to see their own beauty and probably are guilted when others see it too. To be able to capture the core you and show you what the world sees is what makes my job worth it! All woman are beautiful, we should support each other more and encourage to facilitate the beauty we all have inside and out. I hope you like this image as much as I did capturing it!
