Australia has been home for Tenielle  nearly all her life. For me, it’s been my home for nearly 8 years. 

Since we’ve lived in Australia, we’ve travelled to faraway places, met beautiful people and had amazing experiences. 

Experiences that will last a lifetime.

Friendships that will last a lifetime. 

Each time we travel, we come back to Australia happy to be settled in our little city of Brisbane. 

6 months ago, that all changed. 

We decided to travel to Africa, however unlike many of our travels, it wasn’t just a holiday. It was an experience that changed us, an experience that had nothing to do with photography. 

It was confronting, inspiring and humbling all at once.

It’s motivated Tenielle and I to have an honest look at our life and after much thought, a life changing decision was made. A decision based on the wise advice that “there is more happiness in giving then there is in receiving”. 

In 2 ½ weeks Tenielle and I will no longer be based out of Australia. 

We’ll pack our life into a few boxes and fly across great oceans.

From that point on, we’ll be based out of Botswana, Africa. Our new home.

In Botswana we’ll predominantly be doing volunteer work, it’s something personal and dear to our hearts however it’s not something we’ll be promoting on our website. 

We’ll still be documenting destination weddings and holding our Field Trips both abroad and in Australia. More details, dates and locations will be announced over the next few weeks,

This year we’ll be shooting weddings in South Africa, Germany and France as well as Australia when we return to visit family in October and November 2013. 

For 2013 our itinerary looks  a little like this: 

March – August {Africa}

September {Europe & UK}

October – November {Australia}

Whilst we’re abroad we’ll be available for destination weddings and for a number of commercial assignments. 

If you’re interested in keeping up to date with what we’re doing you can follow us on instagram, facebook and twitter. 

To our  dear friends. 

Thank you for being the type of friends that never change. We love you so dearly. 

It hurts us to think that we’ll be so far away from each other but just know that it doesn’t change a thing. 

The words of this song echo in our hearts and say everything we feel about you.
