Garden Route Portraits

This is Reportage, Collection 4

A big thanks to the Judges and Curators of This is Reportage for including not only one but two images in Collection 4.

A moment during the speeches at the wedding of Ruan and Marion at Uitsig Wedding Venue during the 2018 Winter season. After shooting a different scene during the grooms speech I noticed the shadow that fell on the wall behind Marion and moved in closer, waiting patiently for the best reaction until the perfect moment came about.

Dance floor images are always fun and especially so when guests are experienced and elaborate on the dance floor. This image is from the wedding of Hannes and Lizelle during their wedding at La Rosa Blu Café in the Waboomskraal Valley. It took a number of frames to photograph the perfect movement of the two dancers and with a bit of luck they moved right into the light at the moment of the dip.

This is Reportage showcases the very best in reportage wedding photography; no poses, nothing staged, just pure, natural moments. It’s an incredible honour to have images featured among the best documentary wedding photography in the world.
