The In Between

it’s not up and it’s not down.

It’s not yes or no – it’s not wrong or right.

It’s not here, nor is it there, it’s just somewhere… in between.

Oh how I love the in between.

It’s that moment of wonder – it’s excitement and anxiety. There’s an aura of possibilities, of promises and potential. It’s the instant just after a question, where the answer seems to linger, loosely, just beyond your grasp.

“Will you marry me Gillian?”

the in between…

And then the answer comes…

“Yes Jon – I will!”

I love the in between. I love the in between part of a day when it’s no longer morning and yet still not quite evening. The fading daylight and incoming moonlight has such a romantic, soft feel to it and this next photographer, Shireen Louw from Cape Town South Africa, has captured it magnificently.

The ceremony and reception took place at Diemersfontein, a Wine Farm in between Paarl and Wellington on a beautiful 89 degree day. Gillian could not have looked more beautiful and Jon could not have looked more in love. How perfectly perfect, I say.

    Thanks for all the comments :) Jon and myself are amazed at how Shireen was able to capture all these special moments which go by within seconds! we started with our shoot shortly after the throwing of confetti and before we knew it over an hour had gone by, Jon and i were so lost in our own world chatting & laughing while Shireen snapped away…we wernt told to sit or stand in any specific way all the time, Shireen simply lead the way to amazing spots with the perfect settings, it was our first shoot together as a couple so we really enjoyed every moment of it! i dont think i could find the words to express how greatful i am to Shireen for these amazing photos! we look at them everyday and it takes us through the special day all over again each time! THANK YOU SHIREEN!!!!!!!ReplyCancel
