Most call him Hannes, the award winning and talented Lourensford winemaker. After his bachelors, he has become SuperHans! But I’ve known him as Ratego – the Bright One. The man who active and passively played such an important role in shaping me into the man I am today. It was the build up to 3 weeks together in Mbita, Kenya that started it all for us back in 1996 …
Numerous late night fires, red Masai blankets and years of unique memories (and a stunning engagement shoot) later, I drove to his wedding at the beloved Beloftebos with an immense excitement and thankfulness that his day has finally come. Excited that he met an awesome, joyful, talented woman perfect for him. Thankful that they kept themselves for each other to celebrate a beautiful life together.
Ratego – your Luo name has been excelled by your lovely wife. She is your crown that makes both of you shine even brighter. Lieze, your music has changed from mere notes to a stand-up-ovation symphony. World – you are blessed to have these two as one in it. You will become a better place.
I love and bless you with a lion’s heart.
Your good friend and photographer,
Thanks to volunteer assistant McV / Die Dier / bb/ Dirk for making it all possible and more enjoyable! It is not often that photographers have a CA or their best friend as an assistant! Skopitop!
