Cape Town wedding photographer Mark Le Grange applies his photojournalistic style with his experience in directing, to create beautifully styled and creative wedding photographs. This is especially important when it comes to wedding photography as moments are captured in real time and people are stirred through emotion to create beautiful moments which can be captured and celebrated for a lifetime.
Mark has sharpened his skill over the past 10 years. He has worked closely with hundreds of brides and grooms across almost all religious and cultural group’s. Whether its a South African couple who have been living abroad for the past ten years, a local South African community celebrating the coming together of two people in love, or foreigners who elope in our spectacular country; Mark has been a part of it all and effortlessly blends in to find and capture those uniquely beautiful moments which make each wedding a story unto itself.
Modern wedding photography is a heady blend of rock and roll meets hipster, classic style flirts with contemporary flair and the rules of tradition no longer dictate the décor, music and order of events. Couples walk to the beat of their own drum, men wear open collars and pop songs replace wedding marches. From beach weddings with backdrops of white sand and turquoise waters; enchanted unions in lush green forests laced with bunting; wine farm celebrations that reflect the finest of South Africa’s beauty.
Mark and his team combine their experience, knowledge and skill to capture and create true moments which exude passion, emotion, charm and beauty.
Modern technology has played a significant role in the realm wedding photography over the past 12 years. The sky is the limit as to where it can continue to grow in creativity. The digital wedding photography expeience means we can capture almost all those moments under varied light conditions. Modern camera equipment such as the Canon 5D Mark 3, are instrumental in delivering those memories with the “wow” factor. In addition, the social and modern media revolution have provided a phenomenal platform from which images can be shared and transferred around the world. If the wedding is in Cape Town, the couple lives in Hong Kong, or parents live in Durban or London, everyone has the opportunity to view images on a secure medium and share in the memory of the beautiful day.
Modern wedding photography is far removed from the staid, contrived and overly-posed stereotype of decades gone by. It is a heady blend of rock and roll meets hipster, classic style flirts with contemporary flair and the rules of tradition no longer dictate the décor, music and order of events. Men wear colourful socks and open collars, children born pre-matrimony skip down the aisle with their mothers and pop songs replace wedding marches.
