Feather & Stone | Fine Art Wedding Photographer

Sarah + Jonathan * Botswana, Africa

• • •

There’s more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.

Few people appreciate this more than our dear friends Sarah & Jonathan.

A year and a half ago they chose to leave their home in Australia, sacrificing almost every comfort and worldly possession they owned.  They now spend nearly all their time and resources helping the people of Botswana, Africa.

Their life is very simple and at times difficult.

Despite that, they have something that the entire world is searching for.

True, real and lasting happiness.

Tell us, can you see it in these photos?

I think we’ve just scratched the surface.

so, what do you think?

    AAwww there’s nothing like film. I love the colours. But what I like most, is that you focus on the couple, and you manage to capture something intangible of the relationship. Thanks for sharing a hug with love from Chile.
