jack + carly | extended short | freycinet

Preconceptions are a funny thing. As filmmakers, we try not to have them. About the couple, the location, the day itself.

We prefer a blank canvas. The chance to capture a story as it unfolds in front of us.

For Jack + Carly, theirs was a good old fashioned love story!

High school sweethearts, Jack + Carly wanted to return home for their wedding to show off all that they love about Tasmania.

And Freycinet is such a stunning example. Whilst the weather didn’t play along 100%, guests were still treated to a stunning ceremony at Freycinet Lodge – both outside and in!

Jack + Carly struck us with their gentle kindness, their sincerity and their blinding love for each other. These are our favourite stories to tell.

Here’s to the next 4,380 days.

anna + peter | extended short story | yarra valley

Holy energy batman!

It’s tough to describe Anna + Peter – it really needs to be experienced. It’s passion. In the best possible way.

Passion for each other, their family, friends, passion for the world around them, and of course, their growing collection of animals.

So how do we capture that? The brief from Anna was simple: “As long as I look tanned and fit, the dogs look good and it looks like a fucking wicked party, we are good”

Easy.

This was our first fully vegan wedding. And it was awesome. Even Anna’s incredible dress was vegan – no silk here.

Animals are a huge part of Sid’s and Anna’s life. Considering we never saw Anna in the studio without at least one dog in tow, it really was no surprise that their poochies played a big part in their day. We’re just shattered their 12 chickens couldn’t make it. Hopefully they get to watch the video.

Our friends at The Style Co designed an amazing ceremony space, and incredible clear span marquee. Perched high on Levantine Hill, this was indeed, a fucking wicked party.

Thanks for the passion guys, it sure is infectious.

P.S. We’re gonna miss your voicemails!

cassie + aj | extended short | montauk, new york

New York is a bit of a ways-away from Melbourne. So when you travel 30+ hours and arrive the evening before a wedding you’re drained. Physically, mentally, creatively.

And when that happens you need to draw on the energy from people around you. Luckily for us, Cassie + AJ delivered in spades.

Montauk is a delightful seaside town, about 3 hours drive from New York City. It’s a favourite vacation haunt for Cassie + AJ and was the perfect spot for them to marry.

A clifftop ceremony next to the Montauk lighthouse provided some happy tears and preceded an amazing beachfront reception underneath the stars.
