Louise Vorster is sharing this amazing Vintage styled shoot with us today. The Wedding Friends browsed through the interwebs for some new inspiration and found these amazing photographs. It wasn’t a surprise that the creator was part our Wedding Friends, Louise Vorster. She is sharing her story about the shoot with us.
Each day you wake-up, answer emails and start with your daily routine. Do you ever look back at the impact your work and how you approach situations have on people. At the age of 22, I constantly have fears… how should I approach this couple session, how will I answer this email, will there be something more to tomorrow, will the creativity keep on coming… Then you need to tell yourself that having that fear won’t keep you from going, it won’t ruin your opportunity for success. Being motivated and overcoming difficult situations are steps towards your dreams. “Each act of courage breeds greater achievement”.
“No matter how many times you get knocked down, keep getting back up. God sees your resolve. He sees your determination. And when you do everything you can do, that’s when God will step in and do what you can’t do.” – Joel Osteen.
This story started 5 April 1958, the day my grandmother got married. Little did she know that her grandchild would do a Styled shoot with that exact dress. This afternoon were so special to me, well planned timing, pre-preperations of the making of the beautiful flower crown and also getting the antique cello from Musica Instruments. One afternoon that’s so close to my heart in so many ways.
With self motivation comes motivation from others around you. The biggest gift you can give someone else is to believe in them, and for me giving this shoot back to my Grandmother, as she’s the biggest fan of my life. With endless tea parties and chats about my photos, her creativity and our Pinterest addiction. Her vintage dress, a dress thats timeless with lots of memory.
Thank you so much to Fri-Colleen for helping though out this shoot, having you believe in me and being by my side with so much excitement. My fabulous model Bernadette, she’s one awesome image motivator and also a stunning photographer from Harrismith.
