I’m also home/grand-ma sitting for my parents who went over to Australia for 2.5 weeks. With it I have the privilege of running their business along side my own while they are away.

Also, my sister and her hubby recently found out that she is pregnant with their first child. I’m now that close to being uncle Ben.

Also, Cindy’s sister had her matric farewell on Friday evening in Klerksdorp. I was honoured to be asked to shoot a few portraits of her and the very lucky Ferdie. You know, they could have chosen any photographer in the world, but in the end they decided that there was really no choice, it was either going to be me or no photographer at all ;-P . In my limited experience of matric farewells though, Joburg people don’t seem to get too excited about the whole deal. In Klerksdorp it certainly is one of the highlights of the year, right there next to Christmas and New Year. The whole town seems to pitch up to see the couples into the banquet hall, it’s quite an experience.

During the next week or two when I come up to breathe I might add some more pics from this weekend, including some more from the matric farewell.

I also have not forgotten about Luzanne and Stephans photo journ images, they WILL arrive here at some point, just keep looking.

Following are 2 quick ones from Leandra and Francis’ wedding

Ok, one more

Deep breath….cheers

Henno has already let me know that they are in love with their images, albeit as I was crossing the border into Mozambique for the wedding of Aj and Suzie, but I really wanted to share some of the images from this particular portfolio of images. This was obviously a difficult task as the number of albums displayed there were, well countless, and the number of posed images contained in some of these albums were even more countless.

So this was an interesting one, our second last wedding of the season, starting to chill a bit more than you would like just after the sun dipped behind the hill to the west, and it’s one of my best friends from school days’ sisters wedding.

Also a big thanks to everyone who were involved in planning and executing our wedding, it was a most delightful day for us, we appreciate every bit of help we got. Here is one from the honeymoon, Cindy on her way to Mordor to destroy the ring of power (which is at Sterns at the moment for enlargement). I was in a wonderland for most of the wedding day, so I am dying to see the photos to relive the memories in a more sober fashion.

Phillip and Liezl were a pleasure to photograph, and as mentioned in the speeches, they really do complement each other delightfully. Being the first wedding of this season, I will start off with a diluted list of about 20 of my favourite moments of the day. Cindy and I agree that this is probably our favourite image of the day. No apologies for the number of b&w images anymore.

Imagine a farm style meal with a stuffed chicken that’s twice the size of the biggest one you will find anywhere in America, roasted lamb, fought over fried potato wedges, and sweet potato. I nonchalantly phoned up Catherine, fully expecting her to say, “hell no, shoot will be postponed thank you very much“, and that would have suited me perfectly well.
