BEHIND THE LENS
Congratulations on making the decision to pair up with your perfect person! This is the beginning of a new chapter of loving memories, of joy and of laughter.
Chances are you’re knee-deep in wedding plans and feeling a little overwhelmed. As a photography and graphic design team, we’ve chosen to combine our creative talents to form a unique yet fitting combination. We’re a passionate pair of creatives who autograph each piece of work with excellence. We’d love to take a moment to share our hearts with you as you make the all important choice of choosing the right wedding photographer to capture the moments that can’t be put into words on one of the biggest and most emotional days of your life. We want you to look back at your photos and have them bring you right back to the feelings you experienced on that day. PS. This is based on the assumption that you want your photos to look awesome!
Dear bride and groom,
Please love your wedding day for everything that it is! Love your wedding for the simple fact that it is the start of your marriage – the most beautiful journey you get to walk with your best friend. Please don’t be too concerned with creating a Pinterest-perfect wedding day; choose things that are true to you as a couple.
We’re not here for the purpose of wanting to photograph “pretty things.” We will love your décor, your venue, your flowers and every other detail that builds parts of the main event, but not even close to how much we will be honoured to be a part of your special day by freeze-framing the memories and moments of pure magic on one of the most important days on your life calendar. We want to take pictures of you beaming into each others faces with happy adoration and every other joyous moment; that’s why we do what we do. We create photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.
Surround yourself with people who are genuinely interested in you and who will make your day even happier. Let yourself breathe on the day, soak it all in, take time to step back and enjoy your day. We hope that you don’t feel the pressure that the wedding industry can sometimes put on you; it can be so overwhelming to make choices, to feel like you need to keep up with trends, or to do things better and bigger. Choose a photographer who makes you feel like you can be you in front of the camera. We want pictures for our couples that’ll make them feel “Hey, that’s us, that’s how we feel, but in a picture”. Pretty photos are certainly beautiful, but the ones you’ll treasure forever are those that are “real”.
Revel in the joy of your wedding day. Love on your lover, laugh with your loved ones, skip if you must, but feel all the joy! Most of all though, dearest bride and groom, remember you are actually more than just a bride and groom. You will soon be a husband and wife, and this is just one of the highlights of your adventure together. Weddings are amazing, but marriage? That’s even better!
What we do gives us such a sense of excitement! We believe in never touching anything with only half a heart. One of the beautiful effects of doing what you love is that you inspire and awaken the hearts of others. The meaning of life is to find your gift; the purpose of life is to give it away. We sincerely hope that we can give you the gift of our purpose on one of the biggest days of your life.
With love, Ben and Nicole.

As a graphic designer, I can’t think of a more beautiful way to sprinkle my creativity than by designing personalised wedding stationery.
Although the focus is largely on wedding invites, there are many other necessities that will help you to create a coordinated look throughout your wedding ceremony and reception: save the dates, ceremony structure leaflets, map cards, seating arrangement plans, menu cards, table names and numbers, guest gratitude favours and others.
I’d love to chat about your ideas, colour themes, inspiration and every other detail that makes your big day so unique and I so look forward to being a part of creating the finer details that transform fairytales into the real thing. Let’s scatter creativity like confetti!
