Florence Guest Farm, Chrissiesmeer – Katie and Leon

Sat, 18 Feb 2017

My plan was simple and cunning in it’s minimalism. I was going to consume copious amounts of caffeine between sunset and the time I started the three hour journey back home from Chrissiesmeer.

I may have executed the plan a little too well, because now it’s four in the morning and I’m still wired to the gills from all the coffee. I have resigned myself to not sleeping tonight. Instead I am backing up and editing the photos.

Some killer bee images from what I like to call the blue hour. That’s the hour after the golden hour that wedding photographers rave about. I like the blue hour. The light is soft, even and very very moody. It’s also a pain to photograph if you aren’t comfortable with low light situations.

an ad just popped up on my screen for green tea latte which apparently increases concentration – the last thing I need now is more ‘concentration’

BTW in case you were wondering, yes, like most of my clients Katie did warn me that she always looks terrible in photos. I thought she looked incredible. Leon who has the deadliest accent I’ve ever heard was also looking pretty sharp.

More photos from Katie and Leon’s romantic Florence Farm wedding can be found on our facebook page.
