Its been one crazy week, and it just keeps getting more and more amazing by the day. Ive recently been voted as being in the TOP 3 Wedding photographers in S.A. through the Admired in Africa competition, with over 8 winning images! Im absolutely so honoured to have this title for 2017, I cannot wait to see what 2018 holds.
What an amazing morning! Not only waking up knowing that a wedding is waiting for me to be shot today, but last night… Oh last night was special. Meeting amazing..and I mean amazing photographers at the Admired in Africa Gala evening. It was really great to finally put faces to work, and meet everyone in person. We work in a really fast industry and forget to sometimes stop and appreciate everyone involved, and who’s working extremely hard.
Oh yes… there were some awards aswel to put the cherry on top. I’d first like to thank each and every bride and groom who made this possible, who’ve entrusted me with their beautiful memories. Thank you. Thank you to my wife Marsonè van der Westhuizen who stands by me, no matter what…Truly the most super proud wife, haha especially after that applause last night..Love you! Then to Farhan Achhava who is an inspiration to the industry, this would not be possible without your kind heart and great friendship. Thank you the amazing Judges Christelle Rall, Jacki Bruniquel& William Lambelet who took on the daunting task of going through every image, video and album design. Not sure how many there were, but am sure it was a lot. and Thank you kiekiekit.com for the amazing prize! cannot wait to use it in the field.
