 OUR APPROACH 

NOT TOO LONG AFTER WE JOINED THE WEDDING INDUSTRY, WE STARTED WITNESSING THE STIFF, AWKWARDNESS
FOUND IN SOME WEDDING PHOTOS. THE UNNATURAL, AND FRANKLY, THE “FAKENESS” SURROUNDING THE INDUSTRY WAS CONFUSING AND HONESTLY MADE US QUESTION IF THE INDUSTRY WAS FOR US...
EVEN ON OUR WEDDING DAY, WE REMEMBER BEING POSED IN POSITIONS THAT WEREN’T NATURAL FOR US,
AND ALTHOUGH OUR PHOTOS CAME OUT BEAUTIFULLY, WE CANNOT LOOK AT THEM WITHOUT REMEMBERING THAT ALMOST EVERYTHING WAS POSED, AND SEEING THE LACK OF MOMENTS CAPTURED...
THAT IS WHEN IT ALL CHANGED FOR US.
WE DECIDED THAT WE WANTED TO BREAK AWAY FROM THE CLICHE WAYS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AND
VIDEOGRAPHY. WE WANTED OUR WORK TO CAPTURE THOSE FLEETING, PRECIOUS MOMENTS.
THE TYPE OF MOMENTS THAT ONE WOULD EASILY FORGET HAD IT NOT BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED.
THE AUTHENTIC MOMENTS. THE REAL MOMENTS. THE RAW MOMENTS. THE TRUE MOMENTS.
ALL OF A SUDDEN, WE HAD A NEW FOUND PASSION. AND BEFORE WE KNEW IT, WE STARTED THRIVING.
NOW, WE LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY SINGLE WEDDING. WE CHALLENGE OURSELVES TO BE “SWITCHED ON AND AWARE”, CONSTANTLY SEARCHING FOR GLIMPSES. WE WANT OUR WORK TO CARRY GREAT NOSTALGIA. THE TYPE OF NOSTALGIA THAT HAS THE POWER
TO TRANSPORT A PERSON BACK TO THE PRECISE MOMENT IT WAS TAKEN. THAT IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT.
BUT THREAT NOT, WE DO OFFER GUIDANCE WHERE NEEDED, AND WE PROMISE THAT WE WON’T JUST LEAVE YOU HANGING! JUST KNOW, WE ALSO WON’T “POSE OR POSITION” YOU TO A STATE WHERE IT NO LONGER FEELS NATURAL.
THAT’S NOT OUR INTENTION, AND IT’S NOT WHAT A WEDDING DAY IS ABOUT.

 OUR STORY 

WALTER AND I (LARA) MET BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL. HE WAS 18 AND I WAS 15 (JIP, THIS WAS A LONG TIME AGO...) WE QUICKLY BONDED OVER OUR LOVE FOR VISUAL ARTS AND PHOTOGRAPHY AND OUR PASSION FOR TRAVEL, AND IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE
WE BECAME GREAT FRIENDS. HOWEVER, AFTER SOME TIME, OUR FEELINGS GREW MUCH STRONGER, AND WE FELL UTTERLY IN LOVE, THAT WAS WHEN OUR FRIENDSHIP TURNED INTO A LIFELONG RELATIONSHIP. SO, FOR A BIT OF BACKGROUND, WALT HAS ALWAYS BEEN INTeRESTED IN VIDEOGRAPHY. HOWEVER, WHILE I WAS STILL FINISHING
SCHOOL, WALTER STARTED EXPLORING THE VAST FIELD OF VIDEOGRAPHY MORE INTENTLY. IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE HE REALISED THAT HE HAD FOUND HIS PASSION. HE STARTED WORKING FOR A WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY COMPANY FOR A TIME WHILE HE GOT USED TO THE
INDUSTRY, AND LEARNED THE TRICKS OF THE TRADE. SHORTLY AFTER I FINISHED SCHOOL, WALT SUGGESTED THAT WE START A BUSINESS TOGETHER. THE THOUGHT WAS EXTREMELY DAUNTING, BUT EQUALLY EXCITING, AND SO, EVERGREEN VISUALS BEGAN. IN 2020, COVID CAME, AND A FEW OF OUR PLANS HAD TO CHANGE. WE WERE LEFT WONDERING WHAT TO DO NEXT AND IF THE WEDDING
INDUSTRY WOULD BE ABLE TO RECOVER QUICKLY ENOUGH FOR US TO CONTINUE WITH OUR BUSINESS ADVENTURE. IN THE MIST OF IT ALL, ON MY BIRTHDAY, IN 2020, WALT DROPPED DOWN ON ONE KNEE AND ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM. IT WAS THE EASIEST YES I HAD EVER GIVEN, AND ON THE 23RD OF JANUARY, 2021, WE WERE MARRIED. SHORTLY AFTER, WE MOVED TO GAUTENG TO START OUR NEW LIFE TOGETHER,
AND IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE WE ADOPTED MISS LIBBIE (OUR CAT), WHO CONTINUES TO OFFER ENDLESS ENTERTAINMENT. THE WEDDING INDUSTRY RECOVERED, AND OUR BUSINESS IS THRIVING, AND WE’VE BEEN LIVING HAPPILY EVER AFTER, DREAMING OF
OUR FUTURE TOGETHER AND TRAVELING THE WORLD.
