About Me

Hi there!

I’m Pyper-Leigh but you can just call me Pyper – I’m the young, addicted-to-adventuring, owner & photographer behind Positive Lights Photography based in the Garden Route, Western Cape, South Africa specializing in destination wedding and lifestyle photography.

I’m addicted to reading books, drinking Earl Grey Tea (in Winter), savoring life’s precious moments and making people feel comfortable in front of my camera. When I’m not photographing weddings and families, you’ll find me snuggling one of my cats.

My Story

When I was 7 years old, even though I had never picked up a camera, I said to my mother “Mommy, one day I’m going to be a photographer – I just know it!”, a few years later I got my first diploma in photography at 14 and now here I am – hopelessly in love with photographing real, elegant moments. I live for the loving smiles, the innocent butterfly kisses shared between a mother and her child, the “whisk-you-away to another world” moments or whatever makes a family or couple unique and for me, there is not greater honor than to photograph someone’s wedding day or should I say watching two soulmates become one.

My approach to your wedding or session is not to provide you with a service or product but to provide you with an experience!

“Pyper is such a kind-hearted person. She is blessed with an awesome talent, capturing real moments. She makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. I would recommend Pyper as a photographer to anyone. She is young, passionate and I know that a bright future is awaiting her” – Ilanie Potgieter, Family Session of 15
