We are Nath + Soph - Welcome to our little venture Salt. We have been married for 4 years and have a son Isaac who is 13. We live in a small unit in the Gold Coast hinterland and some of our favourite things are food, wine and travel. The long term dream is to live in a little chateau in France with our English Bulldog snoring on the front porch while we eat cheese for lunch - that sounds pretty good! We highly value simple, and time rich lifestyles prioritising the health and enjoyment of our family life. We value productivity in balance with restfulness and aim to bring this Peace to a sometimes hectic wedding day. We thrive in and love the fast pace high pressure of a wedding day yet along side that, we value and relish the quiet slowness of our editing zones.
Nath is your videographer. Apart from being super duper handsome, he captures all those secret moments when you don’t think anyone is watching, because he is an A+ stalker and all-round great guy. He is an audio engineer and production + event organiser bringing all the technical well thought out plans and structures for the capture of your day. He is the “Redundant back up everything” kind of guy who brings methodical and integral protection to the capture of your images. Not only does he value and place importance on how we capture your wedding, he is passionate about providing the very best quality and service we can to our couples.
He is also a down right idiot. haha. Totally down to earth, no fuss, easy going kind of guy’s guy who you can only love to have around. He’s bloody hilarious to watch film from the bushes and although sensitive to stay discrete throughout your wedding day, when needed he can make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of our cameras.
He is in charge of the technical running of your wedding day, planning camera angles, lenses and coordinating audio equipment with your venders for your ceremony and speeches. He’s the guy to edit your speeches and ceremony films, as well as mixing and balancing all of your audio for your feature. He focuses on achieving a subtle and elegant balance and will edit and edit until it is just right.
Although Soph has the same end goal and vision for your day she works totally differently to Nath. Thats why it works! While Nath is setting all the procedure and technicals in place, Soph is off in her creative world of focussing on creatively, and elegantly capturing the images that really reflect your relationship and celebration. She focuses heavily on creating a safe and inviting environment around her photography sessions so that you can step in and not feel as though you have to model or pose. The greatest purpose is to be able to reflect the people in front of the camera and not a copy of a trend or Pinterest board.
She is the trigger happy photog sometimes taking over 3000 images through your day while most likely falling over something or saying something a little dirty. She is a massive dag who appreciates and gets straight to the authenticity in people. One of her favourite things about photography is being able to find that part of someone that is hiding because of fear or lack of confidence. The most fulfilling blessings this job has is being able to tell someone how honestly beautiful they are and then have them see their image and maybe for the first time actually believe it.
On your day she will be the one to lead your portrait session and will creatively direct you to the best spots where the light is just right. She will chat to you constantly through your sessions when needed to calm nerves and distract you from that glooming lens. To her its just as important to know who you are as it is to take your picture and she finds deep value and thankfulness in knowing her couples as best she can in the brief time we spend together. She also creates your feature films. As important as it is to get to know her couples, it is equally as important to make a film that is honest to how your day was and create a beautiful representation of your relationship. She is incredibly inspired by music and it very much leads her in her editing flow and the emotional feel of your feature.
