These two very sweet people met each other on a parking lot in 2015. Crazy to think that Biwak (the beginning of the German Karneval celebrations) always takes place on a parking lot here in Namibia! Needless to say, it was a great party! 15 minutes into their first conversation they were holding hands, a few hours later, Helmo asked Sylvia when they would get married... And her answer: give us 5 years! In those five years they have conquered a 3 year long distance relationship. Living apart from one another takes so much courage, hard work, dedication and definitely a strong loving bond. Two years ago they moved in with each other, in 2019 they adopted a little kitten, and now, 5 years later it is time to get married!
We went up into the mountains for their photo session. In their relationship they have already mastered what other people can't even achieve living in the same city! It just made sense to climb on top of Windhoek's mountains to represent just that. Like their personal journey together as a couple, they conquered the mountain. A beautiful story, two beautiful human beings and a very awesome engagement shoot! A life long of laughter for you, Sylvia and Helmo!
