Hello, love birds. We are Laura and Malcolm Harris from Pietermaritzburg, in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. We are documentary wedding photographers with an artistic edge. Our style of photography is driven by a passion for documenting real, honest moments between the people in front of us.
Although we scout locations and plan our shoots, we have come to realise with experience that no two weddings are the same and copy-cat photography just doesn’t work. Our approach to photography is to feel out the moment and connect with the people in front of us in order to document the genuine emotions in the moment. Our favourite kinds of photos are the un-posed shots of couples who completely forget that we’re there behind the camera.
Our genre of photography can be classified as “Illustrative Wedding Photography”. This genre is a mixture of documentary/photojournalism with an artistic approach. This involves taking photos of all random little moments throughout the day. We love taking un-posed photos, as it usually captures the true emotion of the moment, but at the same time, our artistic approach to photography often means that some photos just look better if the bride and groom are properly posed.
Our goal is to document your moments in an artistic manner, so that our photos can be admired and appreciated as art. We combine elements of traditional, landscape and fine art photography into our style.
Malcolm and I work closely together at all weddings to make sure we don’t miss a moment. We’d love to capture your special moments. Get in touch to enquire about our packages.
I am so impressed by Laura and Malcolm’s service, photography and demeanour. They were lovely to work with, easy going and flexible. I love my photos, they are stunning, even though I was freezing. I definitely recommend Laura Jean Photography!
I honestly cannot recommend Laura and Malcolm Harris highly enough! They are amazing photographers and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed… Laura and Malcolm truly captured something magical in all three shoots they have done for us (engagement, wedding and maternity)
