Hello, we are Yssel & Lee-Anne
love is at the heart of everything we do.
We are not just wedding photographers and videographers, we are high school sweethearts who turned our passion for documenting genuine emotions into a thriving business.
It all began when Lee-Anne, with her innate love for photography, saw an opportunity to pursue her hobby while earning some extra money. That's when Leabaum was born.
(We always get this question - our name Leabaum is a creative mixture between Lee-Anne's name and her maiden name - Bierbaum, which means Beer Tree in German)
Since those early days, we have never looked back. Alongside Lee-Anne's passion for photography, Yssel, a previous adrenaline junkie, always had a trusty GoPro by his side, capturing exhilarating moments. As we progressed in our studies, we quickly realized that we complemented each other's skills exceptionally well. The art of wedding photography and videography became the perfect endeavour for us to embark on together, then as a couple but now as husband and wife.
"Our goal is to capture the raw, unfiltered emotions that make your love story unique"
Every day, we feel privileged to be a part of your special moments. Our work allows us to spend even more time together, as our shared passions intertwine to create magic. The genuine love and emotions we witness on each couple's wedding day fuel our creativity and inspire us to deliver remarkable visual narratives that will be treasured for a lifetime.
As your dedicated photographers and videographers, we strive to create an atmosphere of comfort and ease, allowing your true selves to shine. Our goal is to capture the raw, unfiltered emotions that make your love story unique. Whether it's a stolen glance, a heartfelt laugh, or a tear of joy, we aim to freeze those beautiful moments in time, creating a visual tapestry that reflects the depth of your connection.
