Marina & Jan-Hendrik: Wedding at Leopard Lodge
Jan-Hendrik and Marina only booked me a few weeks ago to shoot their wedding, as a result of some unforeseen photographer circumstances, but I am so, so glad they did! As soon as Jan-Hendrik showed me the invitation he’d designed himself, I was sold. Creative, sweet, and so in love – that’s my kind of couple.
When I arrived on the day I was thrilled somewhat out of proportion to see that Marina had the same lilies in her bouquet that I’d had at my wedding three years ago – that’s the first time that’s happened! And she also wore cute ballet pumps, just as I did. So it was all pretty much meant to be.
Leopard Lodge was fantastic as usual, the light was phenomenal, and though we didn’t get to see any giraffe (or leopards, come to think), we did have an awesome time on the couple shoot, along with the very fun bridal party. Marina looked amazing in her champagne-coloured dress and birdcage veil (swoon), so I went a little crazy with photos of her. You’ll see.
Gastronomical pro-portions? Jan-Hendrik, you rock. That is so my sense of humour.
Silly string? Well, that’s a first for me. Usually the guys just yell stuff at the groom!
Awesome! Guys, thank you so much for letting me and Anabela (my second shooter) be part of your fabulous day!
