Our approach to wedding photography is really simple. At the core of what we do is the desire to tell the story of your day authentically. Without unnecessary interruption or intervention- as it really happens. We want you to look back on your photos in the months and years to come and know that you had the time of your lives. We want you to remember and feel each moment as if you were still in it. Even more than that, we want you to embrace your besties and belly laugh together without fear of a looming photographer. We want you to chill and savour every moment, because time really does fly when you’re having fun. If you’re genuinely having a blast it’ll shine through in your photographs. Win win! To us, the experience of being photographed is just as important as the photos themselves. You may one day come to forget the jokes we shared or the things we said, but hopefully you’ll never forget how we made you feel.
Alongside our story telling motif, we’re creative creatures too. It’s not unknown for us to be waist deep in the sea or rolling around on the floor like some kind of pound shop action man (ACTION SAM) to get the shot. We love the fact that we can each look at a scene and see it totally differently. It’s part of the beauty of having two photographers. As such, recreating the same generic, tired shots that may have been taken at your venue thousands of times before is rarely on the cards for us. Creating something unique to you is the end goal. After all, setting trends beats following them doesn’t it? That’s also why it doesn’t matter if we haven’t worked at your venue before. Getting to see a venue with fresh eyes is a rare but exciting thing for a wedding photographer!
As wedding photojournalists we endeavour to document your wedding day in a way that is both heartfelt and genuine. Shot from a place of love with creative storytelling in mind. We love working with couples who take a somewhat laissez-faire approach on the day and won’t try to micro manage. Go with the flow! Formal, traditional and overly structured couldn’t be further from what we do. Whilst we’re open to working with anyone and everyone, it’s super important to us that we’re the right fit for your wedding. A lot of couples make the mistake of believing that all photographers are one and the same. That’s not the case, so it’s really important that you book someone who’s approach and expertise falls in line with your vision and expectations.
We work best in an environment with like minded couples who’ll trust us to work freely, using our initiative and observational skills. We will of course still document the essential family groups and some loved up couples portraits if you’d like them though! Our style is however best suited to couples who wish to keep it real and keep the posed stuff to a minimum. About 5-6 group photos is typical for our couples and we usually spend around 10-15 minutes with you in the lead up to sunset too. If you love our work and the idea of having a wedding photographer with a laid back, informal approach we’d love to hear some more about your wedding plans.
