WEDDINGS…..Time to go to AFRICA!

By julietlemon July 28 2013 - 02.23 PM

So the time has finally come for me to tell you exactly what I have be soooooooooo excited about and… for my lovely Twitter followers, I can now share the mystery behind the daily ‘sleep’ countdown……….TODAY I AM BEING FLOWN TO AFRICA TO PHOTOGRAPH A WEDDING!!!  Now I’m sure you can understand why I have been so incredibly excited!!!

For those of you that don’t know, along with my passion for photography, Africa is a place that is very dear to my heart.  I have lived in Botswana for a couple of years where I worked for a safari company and was fortunate enough to travel to some absolutely wonderful destinations like  South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia.  Yup, it certainly was the stuff that dreams are made of.  It was in Africa that I first discovered the wonderful world of photography and as I’m sure you can work out, it completely changed my life because I have continued with that and I’m fortunate enough to have become a professional photographer.

So, I’m sure you can imagine my delight when an old safari colleague with whom I worked  in 2006 got in touch a few months back and asked me to photograph his wedding……….erm……….let me think about that……..YES!!!

The plan is to fly out to Johannesburg this evening and tomorrow morning fly to Maun in Botswana and be out there covering all the wedding action from the stag and hen dos, the wedding day, to some other wild animal related adventures (no I’m not calling my clients wild animals, I’m talking about the critters and creatures in the wilderness!).

I promise to take absolutely incredible photos of this wonderful occasion and will definitely keep you updated with brilliant Blog posts when I do have access to the internet.

Really hope that you enjoy reading about the wonderful adventures that will be happening over the next two weeks and I promise to bring some sunshine back when I return to Blighty………..and may see if I can squeeze a giraffe into my bag too because giraffes rock!!!

Ciao J x
