Feather & Stone | Fine Art Wedding Photographer

Hello May Magazine Editorial * My Neck of the Woods

• • •

We never planned on shooting weddings. No. Never at all.

Our beginnings were very humble.

One old film camera, our imaginations and high hopes.

We scoured editorial magazines for inspiration and dreamed of shooting stories like those splashed across the pages.

After a little time and lots of practice, that old film camera, our imaginations and high hopes had us shooting new faces for a local modelling agency.

Our tiny unit became our studio. The furniture was moved and soon replaced with studio lights, backdrops, racks of clothing, chattering models, stylists, make-up artists and hair stylists. All of us excited, bursting with ideas and eager to make amazing images.

Inspiration was endless, we could shoot whatever our imaginations lead us to try.

And so we did.

Fast forward many years later.

Though much time has passed and an immense amount of hard work has been invested, we still have our film cameras, imaginations and high hopes.

It turns out the subjects in front of our cameras nowadays are quite different, but don’t get us wrong, we love shooting weddings, it’s one of the most amazing experiences you could have photographically.

What hasn’t changed is that we’re just as eager to make amazing images.

So having a chance to return to our roots with this editorial for the very first edition of Hello May Magazine was a breath of fresh air.

The memories came flooding back and we reflected on how far we’d come from that teeny, tiny studio unit full of creatives all those years ago.

This day our studio was in the middle of the woods, surrounded by an amazing group of creatives, all of us excited, bursting with ideas and eager to make amazing images.

Thank you to the team of incredibly talented people involved, it was an honour to work side-by-side with you.
