About Us


Hi, I’m Lisa – thank you for stopping by!

My love of taking pictures started when I was still a teenager. My grandpa gave me his film camera and so began my adventure into photography.
I started photographing weddings and built my own business under the name Lisa Rieken Photography.
For 10 years I photographed over 100 weddings with my husband but stopped in 2019 when I fell pregnant with our son.
In 2022 I picked it up again, however this time around I’m focusing more on families, couples and motherhood.
My business has also been rebranded with my married surname (du Plessis sounds so much better than Rieken!)
and I’ve employed the help of a close friend to help me out – more about her below!

I can’t wait to meet you and tell your story xx


Hi, I’m Leigh, a fun-loving person who has always had a great passion for photography, working with people and getting to know them. 

My love for photography started in my early 20’s.
My mom bought me a Fuji camera and a course in photography and well, the rest is history. I started photographing weddings and lifestyle events
until I was blessed to become a mom in 2016 and again in 2019.
I put down my camera to focus on motherhood but now I am ready to start taking photos again. 
Lisa and I have been friends for 23 years and share a beautiful, intuitive bond. 
Photography is the beauty of life, captured. 

I look forward to capturing moments of today that will wow your hearts tomorrow.
