Wedding – Martin & Lorene | Makiti

When you photograph a couple you are allowed to capture a bond between two people that not everyone gets the honor of seeing – you see the light in their eyes when they look at each other, the smile that never leaves their lips and the inability to be apart. This was very true for this beautiful couple. Martin and Lorene met each other through very good friends of mine and as they say – the rest is history.

Last year Lorene persuaded Martin to do a Photoshoot with me in February at Emmarentia (click here to see the photos) – it was a Photoshoot filled with laughter – Martin has the most incredible sense of humor and Lorene has a smile that can light up a room, it was a wonderful afternoon. So when I heard the news that Martin had popped the question at Victoria Falls and Lorene had said YES – I was so happy for both of them. They asked me to be the one to capture their special day and I was so happy to be able to capture their love forever.

Saturday morning arrived with very unexpected August weather with pouring rain but by the time I arrived at Lorene’s house the rain had stopped. Lorene was so relaxed she didn’t mind the rain as all she wanted to do was marry her Prince Charming (come rain or shine) and that’s exactly what happened – in the most gorgeous lace dress Lorene said I do to Martin at Makiti Wedding Venue. The rain stayed away the whole afternoon – only making an appearance that evening when the dance floor was full of happy guests.

It was a magical day with this special couple.
