Nico and Belinda are such a sweet and humble couple. Both of them grew up on farms in the Free-State, and then they found each other, fell in love, and now they’re getting married:)
This weekend in was such a treat – I think I jumped up and did a happy dance when Belinda sent me an email asking if we could do their engagement shoot in the forests of Hogsback in the Eastern Cape. She explained that this was a really special place to them, and besides anything else, it is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful!
We began shooting near the starting point of the Madonna and Child Waterfall
, and took some sweet shots all the way down the (steep) hiking trail until we reached the falls. Shooting in the forest was such a different experience for me as a photographer – here in the Northern Cape it’s usually just veld and wide open blue skies, so it was a treat to be able to shoot in among lush green foliage and mottled sunlight for a change;)
When we had finished shooting at the falls, we headed home via the same (steep) hiking trail – which was now uphill – so we scored a great free cardio session there too;)
Thank you so much Nico and Belinda for a lovely shooting experience! I’m super excited to be capturing their wedding later this year:)
