We are Ang & Stu and we are wedding photographers based on the crazy beautiful North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia.
We are a married couple who love camping with our dog, sunsets anf fires on the beach with friends, playing board games, hiking national parks, travelling public transport off the beaten track in foreign countries, eating far too many cheese platters and planning our next project.
We met (because of a flip of a coin) in the desert in 2007, a year later I (Ang) went backpacking overseas and it wasn’t long before we knew we had already fallen hard (oh so hard… at the very moment I least expected it) so Stu followed soon after, here our pursuit of love and adventure began, getting married within five years, on Straddie in a tropical storm.
We have been shooting weddings together for the past five years (yep, we moved to the island the same week we were married here, that wasn’t a stressful week at all) and we really do love to be a part of a world that is enveloped in love and laughter, beautiful moments and sheer happiness, watching other who have fallen hard as well, that is pretty freakin’ cool.
drinks a lot of lapsang souching, went to six primary schools and two high schools, not a fan of circles, tomato sauce or coffee, loves gardening barefoot in the rain
juggler, trained baker and cook, born in the UK, Mininster for Transport and Finance in our household, loves a striped shirt (from his mum), listens to comedy while editing

Before discovering the love, we were both newspaper photographers, working across the world and Australia, in a fast-paced industry where every day is different, deadlines are tight and the environment is constantly changing... we've been thrown into the gutter by Prince Philip's security, spent a couple of days with Richard Branson on his island, had beers and coffee with page three girls, Prime Ministers, murderers, rockstars, Band of Brothers, sportsmen, models, crazies, oh man, we have met every type of person possible, it was pretty crazy and amazing and we loved it, but this is better.
So going through photos to put here I realise that we have zero nice images of us together (we really need to sort that out... do a photoshoot perhaps!haha) hopefully what I've managed to scrounge up shows a little about us.
We are all about having fun, enjoying - no, not just enjoying… loving the moment, making the most of the beautiful landscape and having a little adventure on the way.
(I gotta say, we love, love, love it when we overhear one of our people telling someone else how much fun they had on their shoot, yep, it is one of our favourite things)
Ok, so we don’t do awkward posing.
We want to capture you both for who you are; those crazy, silly, natural, quirky, considerate, passionate thing that you have together, lets do that.
We love real, and hanging out with real people and their real love is what really gets us going, for us, it is what life is about. So lets do something real and create something beautiful together…
