With over 10 years of experience in film and cinematography I (Elliot) transitioned into wedding photography with my wife Carly. Carly has a degree in Fashion Merchandising as well as a background in styling and an eye for color and composition. As two nomadic lovers, traveling this journey of life, we have a passion for gathering some of the most honest moments from couples all over the world.
How did you get into the wedding industry?
After owning a small advertising agency we transitioned into wedding photography because it was our passion.
Tell us about one of your best experiences at work?
Honestly, there are many amazing experiences. The best part about our job is getting to travel to unique places and being surrounded by nature. We meet a lot of different couples. Seeing the love people have for each other is really special.
What equipment do you use?
Cameras: Two Canon 5d3's
Lenses: Canon 35iiL, 50L, 85L
What's your favorite part of the wedding day? Why?
We enjoy first looks because its an extremely authentic moment. Its the one time in the day where the couple can be alone with each other and express their true feelings.
A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
“The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
― Christopher McCandless
Any advice for Brides and Grooms?
Enjoy the process. It is rare when a wedding goes as planned. We have seen many different things happen at weddings. The wrong cake is delivered, the DJ messes up the first dance song, the florist messes up on the flowers, it rains etc. If you get stressed out and hung up on these things it will take away from the whole wedding day. The day is about celebrating your love for each other. Enjoy that and all of the moments with family and friends.
Any personal advice for fellow Photographers & Videographers?
Keep creating and putting art out into the world. Brand your company around the type of work you like to shoot.
