Couple – Robert and Jessica | Maboneng

Jess and I met at school in Nelspruit – I had moved at 16 from JHB to Nelspruit and I was very unhappy with the move. I was crying in the car park and outside the assembly hall when this beautiful girl came up to me and spoke to me and gave me a hug and told me that it would all be ok. Her kindness, empathy and sincerity shone through her and without her I would not have walked into that assembly hall – I guess you can say she was my first friend.

Jess has the most incredible soul and spirit! I was so excited when she asked me document her wedding in Nelspuit to her prince charming Robert. They really wanted an engagement shoot and they wanted it to be in an urban environment (their Wedding is in the beautiful Lowveld) so they hopped in their car and drove up to Johannesburg to have their engagement shoot. I was so touched that they would do this just to have me take their photos.

We decided on Maboneng due to the incredible graffiti in the area and the energy that surrounds this district. It was a wonderful afternoon and watching and capturing two people in love is what makes my job  so  amazing! I hope you guys enjoy your photos as much as I enjoyed taking them 🙂

See you on the 6th of September!
