Dullstroom Wedding: Karla + Sam

Sometimes you end up somewhere and what happens takes you by surprise. You want to stare at it for a while, just so that some of it will stick with you along the way.

Put a few Australians and South Africans together on one of South Africa’s most scenic farms, an alchemy happens from somewhere, and what you get are few of those surprises.

Karla and Sam’s Dullstroom Wedding.

Let it all in.

As it always does.

You captured the mood and atmosphere of the wedding and the main characters Sam and Karla-Lilienne beautifully!

Kapama Wedding: Anneltje + Marcus

One of my favourite things about plugging into weddings is that I get to experience inspirational places and people that uproot me from my daily flip, for a day or five. For a few hours I am just a dude with a camera looking for stuff that looks super cool to me. This time around I got to document the Kapama wedding of Anneltje and Marcus from the UK. I think between these two super beings, this will be the closest I would ever come to meet the brilliance of a Zaha Hadid or a Carlo Verdone. Proxies that inspire. Like Anneltje and Marcus. I love that.

Anneltje and Marcus’s celebration took place at Kapama Game Lodge and I have to say the quality of this space just blew my mind.

You are at the right place.

Superbly done Hannes!
I think you managed to capture Anneltje’s theme she wanted to portray on this day, perfectly: the travelling to Africa, her Gatsby-glam-era look and feel were well supported by her friends and family and forever captured in time.
The photos made me smile looking at the expressions and smiles, a man taking a photo using his smartphone has a remarkably outdated feel to it! The moment between her and the man in the hat seems special, not meant for others to hear. The emotion shared by friends and family; the couple holding hands, the guests taking photos while you shoot back at them, the textures of lace and leather on wood and metal. Mirrors reflecting the bride, laughter. Just stunning. Well done.
Anneltje and Marcus knew what they wanted and you exceeded the expectations.

Hannes, words cannot describe…!

It is not often that I am speechless, but today I am/was. Lucky for me, these tell our storey and capture our day so beautifully, my words would only be superfluous.

That said, a big THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts, is definitely a necessity. We absolutely love them!

It was an honour to have you capture our African adventure wedding, Hannes. Your artistry and talent perfectly captured the intimacy of what was our most wonderful day. Marcus.

The photos are absolutely amazing, Hannes. Each one made me smile and remember the day all over again. As Ronel said, you captured the day perfectly, the love and friendship of family and friends sharing this very special day with two amazing people.
Thank you for the wonderful memories.
