Hi, we are GingerAle Photography and we’d like to chat to you about who you really are, how you will be remembered…
With the wedding industry today it is easy to get caught up in all the glamour and the expectations, but the things that truly matter are who you are as individuals and who you are in your relationships. It is incredibly amazing to be a part so many life stories, something real and true, and the best part for us is to witness these things unfold on their own, unscripted.
The biggest compliment we’ve ever received was when a client wrote to us after a wedding, after being asked how “we were”, replying: “They were like reading a good book and at the end of the book, it is sad to say goodbye to characters that have become like friends” and she then expressed how her two young boys will one day be able to remember their mom on her wedding day in the way she truly was. These are the things that make us so happy!
We’re a husband and wife team who love working together and create images in a fresh but moody, creative and photo-journalistic style. Coming from a visual art background, we will always look for the potential to create beauty and meaning in your images and to tell your story in the most honest way. As two passionate and happy creatures who love people, we see it as an enormous privilege to be invited into something that is so special to you. Your wedding or photo shoot is not about us, it is about you and the love you share with each other and your family and friends. We will never rush you or leave you hanging. We will not push you into uncomfortable poses or make you be something you are not. What we want you to take away from this experience is a truthful reflection of the emotions you felt on the day – the things that will matter the most. Our job is to be there for every moment and to make every moment count.
Come chat with us!
