Happy Valentines Day!!!
In light of this romantic date I would like to share this fresh, fun couple shoot with you.
Most days I love my job, but sometimes I REALLY love it, and Sunday afternoon was a case in point!
Photographing people who are in love makes me so happy and Martin and Lorene are perfect examples that!
I met them in the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens and the hour just flew by because of how easy and enjoyable this shoot was. I hardly had to do any direction as their love and natural beauty did all the work for me!
It was a typically wonderful Jo’burg evening and all the cyclists and dog walkers were in Emmarentia park with us, but nothing could distract the love birds who only have eyes for each other. We did, however, find a beautiful (and secluded) area of tall reeds which allowed a bit of privacy from the bustling park.
When I got home my cheeks were sore from laughing because Martin is such a joker and kept us all entertained with his quick little comments and Usain Bolt poses. What I loved the most though, was his reaction to me asking for some photo’s of the two of them standing apart. He can’t keep his hands off Lorene and didn’t want to ever be more than an arms length away from his beautiful girl!
Thank you both so much for making my “job” such a pleasure!
And thanks (again) to Ross for being my amazing assistant and second shooter.
