Back in October, I shot a wedding on what had to be the hottest day in the Lowveld in all of 2016. Seriously, it was sweltering, but man, it felt good to have a camera back in my hands. I warned the happy couple on several occasions that I had never shot a wedding in my entire life. I didn’t want to get their hopes up. It’s a big deal to capture the MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF YOUR MARRIAGE! Despite the heat and glaring sun, I was quite happy with what I captured.
This was a beautiful mix of two cultures being united (American and South African, Zulu, to be exact), so the ceremony was a traditional American white wedding. Then, the whole wedding party changed to Zulu outfits and made a grand entrance to kick off the reception. Jeremy was a groomsman, and his Zulu dancing was spot on. 🙂
We wouldn’t have a proper Zulu wedding party group photo if there wasn’t at least one serious photo with no smiles.

Gorgeous photos! Did the groom lose a sandal, Cinderella-style?
