Johannesburg Wedding and Portrait Photographer

for adventure couples and families, across gauteng and south africa.

Leigh Benson Photography

more about me >

I'm a professional photographer in Johannesburg with 15 years experience photographing portraits and weddings. I'm inspired by travel, nature, history and art; fuelled by tea (lots of tea!); and above all: love being able to capture stories through my photography.

Over the last decade (and a half) I've photographed weddings and portraits across South Africa. My work has been featured locally in the Top Vendor Wedding Awards, and internationally in the Prowed Awards and The Portrait Masters.

My clients are the ones who laugh louder and hug tighter. Who jump in puddles and dance in the rain. Who go adventuring with mud on their boots and "padkos" for the road trip. Who love the rumble of thunderstorms after a hot Highveld summer's day.



If that sounds like you, you're in the right place! I'm so excited you're here and I can't wait to hear from you.

Leigh did a couple shoot for me and my boyfriend and we instantly connected with her warm, kind, welcoming personality. Her knowledge and experience of photography is incredible and the passion she has is admirable. We had such a blast doing the shoot and can’t wait to work with her again in the near future.
