Oh what a year!

Our Favourite Images of 2015

Pictures welovepictures    Words Maike

As we approach the end of the year, we can’t help but look back at what a year it has been – because 2015 has definitely been one helluva year. And we have so much to be grateful for.

Travis and I celebrated 5 years of marriage and 5 years of living in beautiful Cape Town. We are grateful for our friends and our community – some old, some new – and the friendships that have grown deeper. We bought and renovated our first home. We moved from busy and noisy Obs to breezy, laid-back Muizenberg. We travelled to Mauritius, Zimbabwe and the USA. We experienced the sleepless night of worry that comes with paying for a mortgage and the simple joy of mowing your own lawn.

We encouraged and supported our friends and each other through hardship, disappointments and cancer. And we are

 

grateful for restored health, endless support and friends that are like family. We welcomed new life into this world. We wept and we rejoiced. We cried and we laughed. We danced.

And in between all of this we had the joy of meeting, photographing and celebrating with 22 wonderful couples. We loved documenting every single wedding. Today we are grateful for the wonderful opportunity these couples gave us, to photograph the wedding celebration in an honest, authentic and meaningful way. We are grateful that we get to document the love and joy that is shared on these days and that through our cameras, we get to partake in this joy. We are grateful that the couples we photograph appreciate and encourage us to photograph real moments.

And we are grateful for the lifelong gift of pictures.
