Yvonne and Simon

 

 

 

Every love story is a tale of beginnings.

The beginning of a new life. The beginning of a journey.

My focus is to capture the beauty in-between.

 

 

 

I wont forget that week, the weather had been unpredictable and I kept hoping the skies would hold up. There had been a few clear days with a breathtaking sunset and I hoped that this would be one of them.  Temperatures were optimum and Yvonne and Simon’s big day couldn’t have been more beautiful What can we say? It was a gorgeous day for this beautiful couple and all their friends and family were in attendance to witness their vow to marriage.

 

Venue was at Langata Botanical gardens and I spent a few days pondering how I would shoot the wedding creatively considering so many weddings had been done there before. It turned out that Yvonne and Simon were super flexible and their chemistry made the day. I couldn’t have prayed for a better match J

 

I hope you will also see all the joy-filled moments these two shared on March 1st  Please, enjoy!
