Elizabeth & Godfrey: Lesotho

May 30, 2011

 

I don’t know where I find incredibly sweet and in love couples like Elizabeth and Godfrey…or rather, I don’t know where they find me! But I do know that I am fantastically lucky that they DO find me and ask me to be a part of their awesome weddings. Elizabeth and Godfrey are missionaries in Lesotho, and they got married in Butha-Buthe, where they live and work. Despite the fact that there were at least two other weddings taking place in the village on the same day, it felt like the entire village turned out to see Lesotho local Godfrey marry his American sweetheart. Elizabeth’s family and friends all flew out for the wedding, and I’ve never felt so welcomed at a wedding before! Anabela (my 2nd shooter) and I agreed that it was an amazing experience from start to finish, and I couldn’t be happier that Godfrey and Elizabeth found me and invited me to pretty much be a part of their family on this special day.

Elizabeth made all the decor herself, from the bluebirds to the bouquets!

This is what the weather looked like at about 9am on the morning of the wedding. Not promising, but I was excited for misty shots!

I have a niece!

May 28, 2011

I have a new niece, and she’s perfect. She was born on Wednesday the 25th of May, and I’m already completely in love with her. These are some photos I took when she was two hours old…bear in mind, I’m not a baby photographer, and these were taken under some ghastly fluorescent lights, but I love them. And I love her, so much. I’m so proud of my sister!

Lauren and Ross: Wedding at Eden Nature Reserve

May 23, 2011

 

Lauren and Ross. I knew they were awesome people from their engagement shoot, but I had no idea HOW awesome their wedding would be! Right in the middle of the privately-owned Eden Nature Reserve, animals everywhere, the ceremony on a huge rock overlooking a valley, the long tables stretched out in Lauren’s Mom’s backyard, each one decorated differently…I was in my element! I think Anabela and I took waaaay too many pictures. What struck me the most was the warm welcome we got from each and every person there, and the overwhelming sense of friendship, community and love that exists not only between Lauren and Ross, but between their friends, families, and everyone who lives on the reserve. It truly was a privilege to be part of this special crowd, and treated like old friends.
