I’m committed to my art. I believe that all art has as its ultimate goal the union between the material and the spiritual, the human and the divine. And I believe that is the very reason for the existence of art and what I do.

Capturing our magical day with great photos was the no 1 item on our list, we went into a lot of detail about the exact shots we were hoping to capture. From the day we started the journey with our engagement shoot right up to receiving our wedding pictures Shawn was so easy and professional to work with.
Our final photos exceeded our expectations, he captured our magical day perfectly and its been a difficult choice trying to choose only 1 or 2 favorites to put up around the house.
We can’t Thank you enough Shawn.

For our engagement shoot, you came all the way out to an animal Shelter to take our pictures, which resulted in the adoption of so many doggies ! You made us feel right at home and comfortable while shooting with you , it was such a memorable day. On our wedding day , even though the weather was not in our favour, you remained positive and made sure we got some amazing photos regardless of the rain.
If we could do it all again we would still choose you ! You are highly recommended by us.

My name is Shawn Brown and I have been a professional photographer since 2008. Based in Johannesburg, I have photographed weddings in the beautiful Macaneta Island in Mozambique, to a farm style outdoor wedding in Bronkhorstpruit, to the Upmarket Venues in Gauteng, such as Oakfield Farm, Memoire, Avianto, Summer Place, Thaba Ya Batswana, Engedi, Makiti, Moon&Sixpense, The Fairways Hotel and many more.
Capturing images at an event for me is more than just clicking a button on a camera – the whole process of experiencing all the emotions associated with what I’m capturing that has a certain kind of magic associated with it. I want you to be able to look back at your images in 5, 10 or 20 year’s time and be captured in that moment in time that you are immersed in. Hopefully it will bring a smile to your face, or even a tear. Emotion is a wonderful thing and as humans, the emotions we express are fleeting, but an image of that emotion lasts a lifetime.
Two photography quotes that I absolutely love:
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of Loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. It remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything”. – Aaron Siskind
“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people”. – Annie Liebovitz
I consider what I do as an art, and an absolute privilege to be present at every event that I photograph. Your event will be no exception.
My favourite part of capturing any wedding, or event, is finding what I call the ‘Personality’ of the event. Each couple at a wedding has their own unique way of expressing their love, similarly every corporate event has people that make the event special, and my goal is to capture those special people that make the moments!
Each event tells a story – I hope to be the one that tells your story long after the event has ended.
My Warmest Regards,
