Leah Van Niekerk - May, Bride-of-the-Month (Autumn Pink styled shoot)

"So, unfortunately, due to work obligations, Hennie wasn't able to make it to to this shoot, but that does not make him any less of a winner, because, on their wedding day, and today still, Hennie will always be one of my favourite grooms - of course, there is one person that likes Hennie more than we do, and that is his wife, Leani. Five years after their big day, they are still just as happy as ever, and it shows. Every time Leani posts a picture online of them, you can see that their love has withstood the test of time...and yes, I do follow Leah on Instagram, I am a pretty big fan, although I'll be bugged if I ever admit that to her :p The thing about Leani, or Leah (although I really have a hard time calling her that) is that she can be as famous as they get, but to me, that's not what I think of whenever I work with her. To me, she is a friend first, a client second and a celebrity last. She is, literally, our only client who I will openly tease to her face, make fun of, and while we're working just feel like I'm helping out a friend. There is no client/vendor relationship when it comes to her, and that's why she will always be one of my favourite brides and more than deserving of being our May, Bride-of-the-Month. P.S. I so wanted to throw in a 'Met Jou Klere Aan' joke in there somewhere, but I couldn't think of one, putting a pin in it for now ;-)"
