Myself and Marc have been shooting weddings together for a few years now. This all started when I bought my first camera with the money I scored from my 21st birthday party. I had no idea what I was doing when I took photos, but I thought they were awesome… let me tell you, they were not. Marc soon after jumped on the photography scene with me, obviosuly drawn in by my (lack of) skill. He bought the same camera, we both went out shooting landscapes together. After we had exhausted all possible photography locations (without having to travel for hours), we were keen to take it to the next level, portraits! The sound of this at the time was a daunting one. How do we photograph people properly and make it look natural? And not look like awkward creeps taking shots to hang on their bedroom walls?
We began climbing this mountain by shooting each other! Yes, call it bromance if you must, two grown men were out and about in parks and rivers taking photos of one another. This was the only avenue we deemed effective in learning how to pose and shoot living, breathing subjects. The next thing I know, we are shooting couples! They may have been close friends at first, but nonetheless we stopped looking like we were shooting desk calandars for one another. We gained momentum from here on out, and fast. After maybe 3 or 4 shoots, we got our first wedding! Excitement and nerves ran through us weeks before this wedding, this was now serious business, this was it… could we pull it off?
Well, almost 3 years down the track we are still alive and well, still shooting and very overwhelmed by how quickly we are growing in this industry. We are so lucky to be able to do what we do, because we love it. And to be doing it alongside one of your best mates is an absolute blessing. We love the creativity, excitement, passion and sheer joy that surrounds a wedding day. We thought we’d share some of the story so far in these images below. We are thrilled by the support so many people are giving us. We cannot do what we do without people backing us and trusting us, so thank you!
