Luis & Kerry :: Groot Constantia

To me this is a real special post.

Firstly, this my first post. Ever. I am not a writer, never thought myself to be a blogger.

I have to be honest, this is all new to me. The same feeling I had when I picked up my first camera and loaded it 16 years ago. But just there and then I’ve discovered my passion and reason for living. But this will be an entire blog post for another day.

Secondly, this post is about two beautiful people. Once colleagues of mine, now dear  friends. Their story. Their love. It was somewhere on the Atlantic ocean they propose to me: “Hey Chaz, will you shoot our wedding one day?” Of course I said yes.

Luis and Kerry met traveling the seven seas as fellow photographers. Their first date was over a cup of coffee in Finland (Helsinki to be exact). The rest was history. Lisbon meets Cape Town.

Luis and Kerry declared their love and devotion to each other in front of an intimate group of close family and friends. On the most perfect day. Luis and Kerry, I was honoured to shoot your wedding day. I must admit, I was nervous too. Capturing two photographers most special day is something to be a lil nervous about.

I love your story. And I am real happy for you both.

Here are a few of my favourites:

this is my favourite of all the favourites

Rodrigues/Photographer in the making, just like his uncle Luis
