The Place of Light, Maboneng.


Faye and Paolo

Maboneng, meaning "Place of Light" is an urban neighbourhood on the east side of Johannesburg’s CBD. But more to the point it was home to Art on Main, the perfect location for Faye and Paolo to tie the knot - and any documentary photographer’s dream location to shoot in Gauteng. 

Saturday in Maboneng means markets, and the street were bustling with life as we made our way through the busy neighbourhood. However all the noise faded as Faye’s mother and father walked her down the tree lined aisle to a very excited Paolo who lifted her clean off her feet.  


One of our favourite moments during the ceremony was when Paolo whipped out his phone in order to get a once in a lifetime selfie of himself and Faye just moments before they were announced as husband and wife.

We hit the streets outside Art on Main and got some awesome shots along the art stricken walls before heading up to a nearby rooftop. Wow - we were taken back by the raw beauty of Johannesburg’s skyline at sunset. It was a dream working with Faye and Paolo and we were honoured to be trusted with documenting the best day of their lives.
