Our philosophy and approach to weddings has come from the last ten years – growing together while capturing hundreds of different wedding days.
We’ve travelled far, moved across provinces and oceans, held our babies as they entered the world, and held the hands of our loves ones as they left it. These events and the big emotions that came along with them have opened our eyes wide to how precious and beautiful life is. How incredibly lucky we are to celebrate it’s big moments.
We used to say something along the lines of how ‘we want to capture your day, photographing each moment as it’s naturally unfolds’. And although this is true (and likely on every wedding photographer’s website, in one way or another), it’s not what really matters.
What matters is that on your wedding day, we observe.
We observe how you’re feeling, your relationships with the people who surround you. We notice what you’ve invested in and what’s important to you. We’re doing this constantly on a wedding day, and it allows us not only to capture each moment, but to focus on the important ones – mum holding back tears, the favours you carefully designed yourselves or grandpa getting on the dance floor. It also allows us to adjust our own approach: If you need a calming presence in the morning when your nerves are high, we’re right there to chat. If you need us to adjust timing to ensure you can get a photo with all of your friends from school, leave it to us. We will guide you through your day with gentle reminders to take a deep breath, slow down and enjoy it all.
Every wedding is as unique as the couple’s celebrating them.
So we never approach a wedding day with a set of ideas of list of photographs that we ‘need’ to capture. Instead, we go to every wedding with a fresh set of eyes and an open heart. We’ll capture all the big and tiny moments – because each and every one is beautiful, fleeting, and entirely yours.
