On those Sundays where I haven’t just shot a wedding, and am too busy inhaling as much caffeine as I can get my hands on, we often head out to the Maboneng Precinct for their Market on Main. Nice food, a couple of art galleries, and a lot of people who look like The Smith Brothers (the cough drop guys). So I was super excited to be photographing a wedding there. You know, it’s downtown Joburg, killer bee views, the food at The Canteen is just insane, and there is some serious street art in that area, Faith47, Hannelie Coetzee and the paste up king himself, to name a couple of my favorites.
It didn’t disappoint, gorgeous light under the olive trees, the sound of Friday afternoon traffic across that bridge, people going about preparing for the weekend. The city starting to get that empty feeling. My favorite time to be out and about in Johannesburg. Something a bit edgier, more urban, and a couple who were super easy to photograph. Got some killer bee stuff with the Hillbrow tower in the background. Nice.
