- Wedding Services / Wedding Photographer in Gauteng
Ryan Graham is an experienced wedding and portrait photographer based in Johannesburg and Cape Town and has been photographing weddings for twelve years. He is one of South Africa’s most sought after wedding photographers for his fashionable portraits and his ability and experience to capture many real moments. Ryan doesn’t do the typical wedding photography and tries to photograph every wedding in a unique way that differs to the one he photographed before.

About Ryan

Ryan currently resides in Johannesburg but recently lived in Cape Town for four years where he photographed one hundred and twenty weddings during his time there. Before that he was based in Johannesburg where he photographed approximately eight hundred or so weddings all over South Africa. Ryan has recently photographed local personalities Lee Ann Liebenberg, various Springbok rugby players and Christiaan Barnard’s weddings and has photographed bridal fashion spreads for some of South Africa’s most popular bridal magazines.

Awards & Accolades

Many local and international magazines have featured Ryan’s work from real wedding features to bridal fashion spreads. Just Married Magazine in Italy voted Ryan as one of the top ten wedding photojournalists in the world and he has won numerous awards for his work including eight Sony Profoto awards in one year in 2009. In fact Ryan was one of only two photographers to win a gold award in that year.

Ryan has photographed weddings in London, Italy and will soon be travelling to Sicily in September 2012 to cover a wedding for a couple that live in New York. He still wants to photograph weddings in New York, Mauritius, Seychelles and many parts of Europe. With his British passport Ryan is eligible to photograph weddings in many destinations worldwide without a work visa.

Ryan’s artwork can be described as edgy, modern, fashionable with natural photojournalism for capturing real moments. In fact most couples after their weddings ask Ryan if he was even there. He prefers to capture the moments with a fly on the wall approach using long lenses as not to interfere with the natural flow of the wedding and not making guests feel uptight with cameras everywhere, “this is the only way it’s possible” he says.

If you’re looking for a photographer with the ability and experience to photograph breathtaking portraits and incredible real moments at your wedding then look no further.
