Natural Wedding Photography
Stelenbosch Winelands wedding photographer Lavonne Bosman resides on a farm in the Stellenbosch Winelands, close to Cape Town, Paarl, Franschoek and Somerset West.
“I’ve been photographing Weddings for more than 10 years and even after all these years, I still thoroughly enjoy being part of the most special moments of love and joy. It’s an honour to be able to capture these emotions to be remembered for years to come!”
I specialise in natural wedding photography as people can sometimes be a little uncomfortable in front of the camera and find posing awkward. So no need to pose, my experienced eye will capture the love shared and your inner beauty will shine. People who thought they were un-photogenic found that they love the photos I’ve taken of them. The other aspect of natural photography is that I take photos in soft natural light, so in the afternoon and preferably where there are some trees to provide a bit of shade if needed. A partly cloudy day is always perfect!
I love to capture natural moments as they happen, thus I create a story through pictures. I look out for moments in time where you’re receiving a hug and laughing, a most natural unposed joyful moment. I want to capture the happiness in your families faces as you walk down the aisle. And most importantly, I want to capture the bride and groom in a way that reflects the love and radiance shared – glowing and beautiful!
When brides ask me what they can do for me in terms of their photographs, I like to tell them to just carry on, be themselves and pretend like I’m not even there. It’s those little moments that can’t be faked that shine the brightest. Only during the couple shoot I might direct you a little bit if needed. I’m aware of how people can be camera shy, so I make the process naturally fun and relaxing.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
* Please remember that full sun is very unflattering for you if you choose an outdoor photo shoot! Soft light from the late afternoon or shady trees have the best results.
*Extra romantic lighting, like fairy lights, at the Wedding Reception are welcome as it creates soft lighting and ambiance in the background of the photos.
