A month after our planned engagement shoot date (due to lockdown) we found gold.
After 2 months of not being able to photograph people (and ONLY my Yorkies and husband) I was very eager to get back into the saddle and capture what is real and true.
Diandra, Pieter and myself (together with their dogs) chased a sunset, and what we found was spectacular....
We could capture their long awaited engagement shoot and also their talents.
"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."
With a heart full of hope we found a beautiful secluded woodlands area through the kindness of a stranger... a farmer who invited us into his fairy inhabited forest...
We were taking photos at the entrance of a farm near the Lesotho border... the farmer stopped in his bakkie next to me... he gave me a kind look and invited us onto his land to take photos.
His random act of kindness meant the WORLD to me.
“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” – Scott Adams
"So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light"
Mumford and Sons
The magic started when Diandra and Pieter shared with me their amazing musical talents during our shoot.
Imagine a row of trees and then hearing Mumford and Sons being played by a violinist and guitar player. The whole setting was enchanting.
As I captured the enchanting melodies, we were spoiled with beautiful golden tones of light falling through the trees. Long shadows falling over us. Indicating the end of day and beginning of a chilly winter evening.
We were encapsulated with God's presence.
I hope this shoot gives you hope... Because even though the whole world is going through tough times... there is always beautiful stories of hope.
