Wedding Anniversary Shoot with Herman and Trudie

I approached Herman and Trudie Strauss and suggested we do a Anniversary shoot in her wedding dress. The lovely couple was delighted and Trudie dusted the dress off while Herman even got his wedding socks on.  The Willows provided a beautiful setting. The spring weather was at first not really what I expected . The wind blowing rather more like a Cape wind than what we are use to here in Bloemfontein. Luckily the wind died down a bit and provided us with just enough breeze to have some fun.  Trudie’s amazingly big and beautiful vail guaranteed heart stopping images.  They got all nostalgic remembering their wedding that also took place at the same wedding venue, The Willows, Bloemfontein.

“It’s a very dangerous state. You are inclined to recklessness and kind of tune out the rest of your life and everything that’s been important to you. It’s actually not all that pleasurable. I don’t know who the hell wants to get in a situation where you can’t bear an hour without somebody’s company.”
