I'm a fulltime wedding & lifestyle photographer since based in Pretoria and Cape Town. I'm a wife, a dog mom, a foodie and a social butterfly.
Let's see if we'll be a good match.
My approach to capturing stories is documentary with a flair of editorial story telling.
What makes me different is the energy and spirit I bring to the table. Focusing on you and drawing inspiration from whom you are. My main aim when it comes to photographing moments is to celebrate the real emotions of the souls sharing that memory.
Making sure your memories feel like you.
Shanay is any bride's dream. Every minute with her was effortless! I can't even begin to describe the absolute euphoria we felt as we went through our wedding pictures for the first time. She captured every spontaneous moment so gracefully and skilfully and made us feel so at ease in front of the camera, even with the pressure of our wedding being featured in Sarie magazine, Shanay showed up and delivered above and beyond what we could ask for or imagine. Jys 'n gem!
Your heart exudes a passion for people's stories that is fresh and authentic and we love and appreciate you!
These are photographers that take photos.. and then there is Shanay Greene. She captures more than just smiles (and boy are there always many of those!), she captures souls! Our hearts are full of gratitude and appreciation for Shanay, she is an artist, a storyteller, a magic maker. She brought our wedding day to life, capturing the true joyful essence of the day in her beautiful photos. Her legacy lives on in the minds and hearts of everyone who is fortunate enough to meet this special lady!
Our journey with Shanay began with a coffee meet up a year before we became husband and wife, but since then a friendship with her has forged and we are so excited to have her capture so many more milestones in our lives! We love you!
I cannot thank Shanay enough for our breathtaking wedding photographs. Words cannot express how happy my husband and I are with the photos. Her communication from the moment I first messaged her has been beyond amazing and her follow up after the wedding has been just as good. On the wedding day she was so lovely to be around and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to share those intimate moments with me. She made me feel comfortable and her personality was just so nice to be around. The photos she took are stunning. It was exactly as I imagined them to be (actually way better than I could have ever imagined!), and there was not one photo I did not like, the colour tones were so beautiful and each photo was natural (exactly what I wanted). She helped me so much with tasks beyond a photographer's duty, such as timing for the wedding which was such a huge help.
She stuck to her timeframes and everything was on time. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality of her shots and the amount of time she spends communicating with you and editing the shots. Honestly, if you are looking for a photographer, Shanay is the most down to earth, organised, amazing, lovely and talented photographer. We have been so so happy! Still cannot get over her photos and how perfect they are. Thank you for capturing our special day in the most beautiful way.
I don't even know where to begin! As a fellow photographer, I did not know what to expect, doing my first couple shoot, Shanay made Charlie and I feel so incredibly comfortable & relaxed and we could just focus on each other. She guided us, but also gave us the space to do our own moves. I look up to this amazing photographer & she inspired me daily.
I would recommend Shanay Greene Photography to any and all couples out there. Just do yourself a favour and go check out her magnificent work. The best photographer!
One of the best parts of being a fulltime storyteller is the fact that I get to travel and meet new people and share in their joy. I would love to see the world and capture people's journeys from every corner of the world. If you're planning a destination wedding, hit me up so we can make magic together.
