You know what we bring to your session? Generally two photographers, two to four cameras, flashes, reflectors, memory cards, spare batteries, lens cleaners, lens hoods, spare lenses...it's like Mary Poppins' carpet [gear] bag.


You know what you need to bring to your session? Just yourself :) And if you have long hair, maybe a hair tie in case it gets windy - we want to see your face. Otherwise, just enjoy not having to carry a pile of stuff around with you for a change.

Did you know we don't just take photos?


We also do dubs, media conversions, image restoration and file recovery.
