In some strange way our very different lives entangled. It took big decisions, a flight across the globe, photography assisting, a party, mom's phone call at exactly the right time, lust for travel and exploration, good waves, African sunsets, Lou Reed's song 'Walk on the Wild Side', and playing backgammon in the Transkei.
And that's how we fell in love.
We try to live fully. Learn everyday, read books and the news, get inspired by other documentary photographers, hopefully get better at cooking. Hike up big mountains and pick avocados from the tree. We've just made amazing memories by taking 9 months off to travel, and cycle tour through Japan, Scotland and New Zealand for 4 months straight. (link). In the future we like to produce our own food, grow flowers and hopefully move to Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. We loved it that much.
Being a part of weddings makes us feel like we are part of making a little history. Weddings are one of those days where humans are at their best. The day is filled with so many emotions; anticipation and nervousness, joy and love, overwhelming feelings of gratitude - and it always ends up in an ecstatic party. We are the ones who stand on the side line whilst still getting involved. We try to absorb it all and capture not only what we see, but also attempt to capture what we feel.
So not your cookie-cutter kinda wedding photographer. Photographing shoes and cuff links doesn't sound that interesting to us. Instead we are looking for that connection between people and try to create good honest photographs that evoke emotions for years to come.
We are excited to tell your story - will you let us in?
