Green Leaves Wedding Photographer
Celebrating Karien & Donovan’s beautiful winter wedding at one of my favourite wedding venues Green Leaves in Hartbeespoortdam. Nestled in the Magalies Mountains on the banks of the Magalies River, 40 minutes from Johannesburg & Pretoria rests Green Leaves.
I feel so blessed that couples are willing to share their story with me, and am thankful to do what I love. I believe that love has the unique ability to transform the pillars of everyday life into something magical & real, all at once. My favourite stories are joyous occasions with a personal touch – to watch couples throw parties for those dearest, as friends & family celebrate a union from which all tomorrows start. Each is always unique to the wedded dreamers and those present. And this is why I love photographing weddings – my drug of choice! While part of a greater story, each photograph is treated as it’s own piece of art. The elements of composition, framing, contrast, perspective and layers (to name but a few) are intuitively considered. Food for the soul – definitely feeding my soul!
I had the privilege of working with Johan Niemand with his drone throughout the day, I cannot wait to see the footage! Give this man a bells!
Thank you to my sister Yolanda for assisting me at this wedding, you were such a great help and couldn’t have done it without you!
