Leanne Love Photography » The Official Site of Leanne Love, fashion designer turned photographer based in Cape Town, South Africa


Welcome! I’m Leanne Steyn-Begley

If you’ve ever had your heart speak to you and had that burning passion inside of you, then I think you’ll know very well what comes next: “You either have to do what you need to do, or it’ll feel like you’re going to die, one or the two.” That’s how I feel about love.

I believe that unless it’s a mad passionate extraordinary kind of love, it’s a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love should not be one of them.

My goal is to help you plan your dream wedding by sharing tips & advice so you can spend your time where it matters most.

That’s because I’m part wedding photographer, part designer, part personal shopper and a good SALE makes my heart beat a little faster.

Being in love with all three creative outlets and not wanting to part with any of them, I created Leanne Love Photography.  A platform where I get to share my favourite photographs, swoon over yet another gorgeous dress and be passionate about what makes us all tick – relationships.

On whether or not my surname is actually “Love”? No, it is not, but no one in their right mind will remember a half-Dutch-half-Irish surname, plus if Marilyn Monroe can have a stage name – so can I).

Whether you’re looking for the ideal wedding photographer or still trying to figure out how the heck to plan it all, I’m here to help and support you along the way.
