Congratulations to photographer Jan Theron who recently shot his 1000th wedding!
Jan celebrated the occasion with a party at Langverwagt attended by friends and many in the wedding industry who work with him.
Jan told me recently that, after leaving Stellenbosch university where he obtained a degree in fine art and photography, he had photographed the weddings of one or two close friends but he said he still counted the wedding he photographed in December 1993 as wedding number one as these were his first paying clients. When I enquired if he was nervous on the day, he replied that he remembers feeling more excited than nervous about the shoot!
Since starting his career as a wedding photographer he said he had seen many changes in the industry, especially since the arrival of digital cameras.
Jan has been exhibiting with Celebration House for over 14 years and during that time we have received many wonderful letters from satisfied couples, locally and abroad, who have used his services.
Well done again to Jan for this amazing achievement – there are not many photographers who can say they have photographed 1000 weddings!
