It’s Saturday morning, 6.00am, the alarm clock goes off and I get out of bed feeling pretty shaky. The day before had been a long haul shooting Rowan and Tarryn’s wedding. I’d eventually got into bed just after 1.00am after downloading their photos and here we were, a few short hours later ready to take on James and Liesl’s engagement shoot. And to top it all I had to climb into a flipping hot air balloon, without a parachute, steady my shattered nerves and take photographs of them sipping on wine high above the ground. Unlucky for me. But as it turned out, things weren’t going to be all that bad because James and Liesl turned the shoot into a lot of fun. They’re mad! Looney actually. And when it came to taking a bit of prodding and direction from me they took to it like ducks to water. So up into the air we went, wine and all at 8.00am in the morning, then off we went to Mooiberge (if you ever want a bottle store that’s open on a Sunday, this is the spot) and then off to the forest for a fair amount of fantasy play and a lot of laughing going on. In fact, it felt a bit like we were in a pantomime at times.  Refreshing stuff – roll on wedding…
