The Living Room, Maboneng – Daniel and Carla

Sun, 19 Feb 2017

If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time you probably know that I love shooting in Joburg. Not just the hip areas like Braamfontein and Maboneng, but Newtown, the Nelson Mandela Bridge, the old CBD around Fox Street, the old Chinatown. There is just so much history and authenticity in those places. I love the way that Joburg is a million things to a million people but it’s always Johannesburg, whether you’re in Bree Street next to that guy that sells dentures on the side of the road, or on top of Randlords looking down on a million twinkling lights.

So when Carla called up and said they were having their wedding at The Living Room I was pretty excited. The area around Arts on Main and Maboneng is just too easy to photograph and they seemed like the most relaxed couple. Just at ease with being themselves and excited to be getting married. Carla’s only request was a photo with the Maboneng sign in the background, and I did put old Daniel on the spot at one point and asked him to write on the wall what he wanted to do before he died. I thought he did pretty well …
