Embark on a photographic journey, following our adventures throughout South Africa! As we “set sail” on this life-changing journey, we had no idea how much our hearts would be changed, and how much of this country we would soak up into our souls.
Our itinerary sent us from Atlanta to Amsterdam, to London, to Johannesburg, then to Cape Town, where we finally met up with our dear friend Marie of Sarah Marie Photos. Marie captured all of these beautiful images through her lens.
Saturating ourselves in the culture, and soaking up each sight in a desperate attempt to remember each and every detail, we floated through South Africa, falling in love each step of the way. Over two weeks we were fortunate enough to explore the city of Cape Town, Camp Jabulani – the elephant camp where we wed, Richard Branson’s ultra luxurious private game reserve, Johannesburg and thousands of miles open road in between.
The hungry children of Akani melted my heart, the chants of local tribes singing around the fire are still ringing in my head, the rush of racing on horseback through the wild bush and being stalked by leopards cannot be put into words, and the experience of marrying in a land that seems a little closer to heaven is a blessing from God. Africa? A distant friend that I ache to see again.
