"We had the privilege of having Leon take our wedding photos. Class and sophistication, with the utmost professionalism and ingenuity! We had a lot of fun during the photo shoot and could not have asked for any better! The photos are stunning and captured our special day and moments to be cherished forever!"
"Leon is a top wedding photographer for three reasons.
1. He is a skilled artist: using light, composition and timing he captures moments perfectly.
2. His personality is flawlessly suited. He is super enthusiastic and REALLY went the extra mile for my wedding. (Example: a week before the wedding he calls me up out of the blue “guess where I am?” he says. He’d driven the hour and a half to my venue and found a spot he was exited about using for an image...) He is unobtrusive and sensitive (I didn’t want a wannabe movie director photographing my wedding). Having said that he manged the crowds really well! He keeps his head and his cool and he’s a lot of fun!
3. He spent hours searching through the hundreds of images to select those that he then spent hours editing masterfully.
I’m really grateful I found him and I HIGHLY recommend him!"
Why choose me?
I started my photography business in 2003 when I moved to Cape Town from Port Elizabeth, after completing my BTech in fine art, majoring in photography. So I am not only a skilled photographer, but also a trained artist. I am absolutely passionate about photography, and love sharing my passion with others through arranging photo walks and providing training courses to the public as well as other photographers in photography, lighting, digital editing and darkroom techniques.
Why do I love photography? I love telling stories through pictures! And that is also why I love doing wedding photography. Each wedding is an opportunity to document the beginning of a new story for two people choosing to spend the rest of their lives together. My goal is to capture the unique story of your first day together so you can look back on those precious memories forever and share it with your friends, family, children, and grandchildren one day.
I weave together the story of your wedding day by drawing on all the elements: the weather, guests, venue, taking care to document the details you arranged for your special day. I endeavour to let your personality and style show through my documentary style of photography. For the wedding couple portraits, I follow a fashion shoot approach - stealing the couple away for a private 1 hour fashion shoot at pre-scouted spots in and around the venue. The ideal time is an hour or two before sunset when the light is soft and flattering, and of course, at sunset - when we get to use the most beautiful backdrop that only nature can provide. Beforehand, I like to spend some time with the couple get to know them better. This helps me better understand who you are, what type and style of photographs appeal to you, to ensure I can provide you with a tailored, personalised service.
If you are looking for something different, unique and creative that is tailored to you: that is what I do!
