Last month I was out doing a photo shoot for Collisheen Estate, one of the wedding venues where I often shoot. The phone rang and a lady introduced herself as a representative of a sports management company, she said that one of the Sharks and Springbok rugby players is getting married and she wanted to know if I’m available for the date. So I checked my calendar quickly and told her that I am indeed available. She also sent a follow up email which I replied to and then I didn’t hear back from her, so I just wrote it off thinking that they’d decided on another photographer. Then a week later I was on my mountain bike in the middle of the Giba Gorge bush, I stopped to take a drink of water and a felt my phone buzzing in my pocket. I reluctantly answered it and to my surprise it was the same lady, wanting to know if I could do Lwazi & Steph’s engagement shoot the following day. It was a tight one because the day after that we were going to be leaving on a photography trip to the Kruger Park for a week.
I’m so glad that we ended up doing this shoot. Lwazi and Steph were full of fun and smiles, we all got on really well and we got some great shots. I’m looking forward to the wedding next year!
