To know us, you need to know our story. We met on Mardi Gras night in 2011 at a funky little bar in the bustling city of Sydney.
The following May we travelled to his hometown in Borneo, where I met his family. We went hiking in the rainforests of Mulu National Park and it was in one of the massive, damp caves there that he got down on bended knee and I scolded him for kneeling in bat guano when we were late to rush to the airport. It turns out he was proposing but I didn’t realise! A week later he tried again, this time as we splashed about in the tropical waters of Tioman Island. I happily accepted and we celebrated with fresh coconuts and sweet ice cendol. In the whirlwind romantic style that has become our life story, we were married six weeks later and on a starry winter evening in 2014 our lives changed forever when we welcomed our sweet daughter, Love.
Professionally, we’re based on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. We specialise in documenting the special moments of your life, with particular interests in family, maternity and wedding photography. We also love to shoot the other special moments that define your life including newborn and baby, engagements, adventures and couples in love. Our portraits capture your stories through beautiful images, with focus on the tiny details that make up your day. We will spend your session with you capturing natural, spontaneous moments and wherever possible, we will work with natural light in outdoor locations along our beautiful coastline.
We draw inspiration from our thirst for adventure and our stunning natural surrounds, from the mountains to the sea and hope to incorporate some of this beauty in your session. Spending time with you, documenting the treasured moments in your life and providing you with the images to enhance your memories of these fleeting moments is the most rewarding job in the world.
We feel honoured to capture the magical moments that make your love as special and unique as your colourful life.
