Wow what a year we had at J & D. 2009 was full of excitement, some of the highlights were being profiled in Rangefinder (we are the second South African studio ever to be profiled) being nominated as being one of the best 350 wedding studios in the world by our international peers.
Winning 50% of the South African Fuji Wedding photography awards. Winning the silver Sabia award. Daleen and I went to Venice and attended a workshop with Yervant who is seen as one of the top 5 in the world by his peers. I did a shoot in New York with Neil van Niekerk and also did a shoot in San Francisco. We will have some of our images published in a inspirational wedding photography book. I presented a workshop for 20 local photographers and had a blast doing it.
We also had the privilege of working with all our clients. With out them, there will be no J & D. So from the bottom of our hearts we say thank you to all of them for making 2009 such a great year. In a year that the world saw economic problems in all areas J & D had one of its best years ever, we can only say thank you to God for it is He that gives us the talents to do what we do.
We only have 5 spots left and then we are fully booked for 2010. I am shooting some international destination weddings and will be presenting workshops in Canada and the USA. We have sold Furi Fine Art books as we want to concentrate on our photography more going forward. We have been very busy the last 2 weeks revamping the studio area to get all ready for 2010
So here is looking forward to 2010. May God bless you all in what you do and have 2010 be a great year for all.
The J & D Team.
