We are a photography and videography duo hanging out in Perth and exploring the great south of Western Australia whenever we have the opportunity. There is nothing we love more than letting all your epic moments unfold in front of us. We are here for your story, wanting to capture it in its most real and authentic form.

Being your chief dress/veil/bouquet carrier, getting rid of spider webs for you (usually by accidentally walking through them), bringing you food and water (*wine*), finding you five seconds of quiet before you walk out the door and nodding across the room when your favourite song comes on are some of our fave little bits. But ultimately we just adore finding the best moments to allow you and your loved ones to be “you”.

She takes the photos..

She doesn't care much for the cutting of the cake or the classic signing the registry shot, she'd rather be facing the other direction watching your loved ones watching you, big cheesy, proud and a little teary grins on their faces.

She loves a cosy cup of tea and isn't much inclined to warmer weather - rather you'll find her down in Albany whenever she can make it there. Running around with her family, her million nieces and nephew's and the colder weather. She will always make a point to notify you of any animals within close proximity, Loves a little Harry Potter marathon when she has the time and can quote the entirety of Ace Ventura and The Lion King with ease.

She loves Ben big time. She loves his unfaltering kindness towards others, his ability to consistently surprise her with his compassion for this Earth and the people on it. She loves the way he takes care of her, their home, their community when she is up to her ears in chaos and calmly reminds her she can do anything. Also he can make a mean risotto.

He Makes the Films...

He loves the real stuff. The honest, raw, warm fuzzy stuff. He cries more than she does at weddings (and even more when editing a wedding film). He is constantly seeking to grow, constantly striving to do better, be better and feel better. He thinks it’s ok to be vulnerable, it’s important to feel things deeply. He loves a good Long Black in the morning after a run with the dog (or just sleeping in if he is tired). Taking time out to meditate and think about things.

He values sustainable living, being kind and taking time to care for others. You’ll find him stuck in the deep dark depths of YouTube spirals or a game of Age of Empires when he’s not working or in the backyard building.. something? He can quote the entirety of all 3 Lord of the Rings (extended editions) and admits he also now tolerates *but secretly loves* Harry Potter.

He loves Ebony deeply, she challenges and inspires him and he doesn’t know if he could have got through some of the toughest times in his life so far without her.
