I love photographing anything to do with matric dances. I love seeing the effort that the men and ladies go to for one of their biggest nights of high school. The glitz, the glamour, the nerves, the tears – it all culminates in breathtaking beauty.
Being able to be there, to capture that, is amazing for me (I really wish I had thought of that when I was in high school!).
I want you to be able to look back on high quality photos and see how stunning you were. See the hope in your eyes and the shyness in your smile. And know that in that moment, on that night, the world was at your feet and you looked perfect.
This young woman was no exception. Before I go any further, I have to commend her manners – her parents did an incredible job! She was polite and even though it was her big day, she kept inquiring about my own comfort during the shoot!
I have no doubt that she made her parents proud, and will continue to do so. She is intelligent and beautiful and incredibly humble – what a combination. Whatever she is up to this year – may all her dreams come true. Who knows – maybe I will see her again once she has a family of her own
These are just a few favourites of mine from her shoot:
