My Story

Lindy-Leeming wedding photographer in Johannesburg and PretoriaIf you have clicked on this, you are obviously curious to know more about the person behind the lens at weddings, me! Well, first off, I have to say that I am not a very good auto-biographer!… I will try my best though to give you a brief insight into my story.

When I’m not capturing weddings and couple shoots in Gauteng, photographing bands in live performance is a great passion of mine!

I am Bryanston based where I live in with my husband, gorgeous daughter and my two Burmese Cats. Photography has always been a passion of mine and my earliest childhood memories include sneaking off with my Dad’s precious old Pentax SLR to take pics of my favorite dog! Not having a clue what I was doing and with no knowledge how to operate a manual SLR camera, the photos were inevitably all horrendously out of focus – as if they had been taken from out of the window of a moving bus! When my Dad found out that I had been misappropriating his camera, he promptly bought me (what is now an archaic) cassette camera with a disposable flash with bulbs that used to pop on each shot (I will have to google what that thing was called!)

Having left the Corporate World when my daughter was born, I made a radical career shift into the world of Photography and studied full-time during 2008 at The National College of Photography. I was awarded a distinction for my end-of-year portfolio – a photojournalistic insight into the state of townships in and around Johannesburg and its impact on the lives and characters of its people.

Photojournalistic Wedding Photography was an obvious progression for me and the following year I ventured into that field. My style is natural and relaxed and I take a very documentary approach involving very little of the more formal, traditional style of posing.

I aim to make every bride and groom feel their most confident and their families feel their most comfortable, during their special day.
