Getting to know… KISSstudio

It’s certainly all systems go here at TVHB headquarters with our next lovely wedding fair tomorrow…. competition entry forms are printed, table runners are packed, our door list is being collated and we just can’t wait to meet you all in the morning.   We have so many lovely vendors for everyone to meet, and one of these is KISSstudio who are even bringing along their photo booth so you can all “be seen” at our event and have some fun.

Can you tell us a bit about KISSstudio?

We are fine art photographers and photo booth operators. We LOVE what we do and cannot get enough of taking pictures of beautiful people and things 🙂

Do you travel for weddings?

YES we love travelling, we travel all over for weddings. We have photographed weddings in almost every state in Australia. We recently photographed a wedding in Bali and we are off to the USA and Mexico to photograph weddings at the end of the year.

How would you describe your style?

We have been told our style is Rustic-Chic, and we kind of like that. We like rustic along with clean and crisp!! We like to photograph in a documentary style throughout an event but we do take control and provide direction when needed.

How early should couples book with you?

We encourage couples to book at least 12 months before, however we take the occasional booking 18 months before and alternatively 3 months before, if we are available.

Why do you think photography is such an important part of a couple’s big day?

Photographs are memories, stories of love, pieces of time which we capture for no other reason than to preserve that moment which took your breathe away. What is more important than preserving those moments of the best day in your lives?

What advice do you have for couples when they are thinking about their photography?

My best advise would be to think from the end. Imagine your wedding album or wall canvas and what the picture will be, then decide what you would like out of your photographer.

What is your favourite thing about photography?

We live to capture that moment which takes your breathe away, that moment which is felt so deep in your soul that it does not seem real.

Do you have a favourite wedding photograph? What is the story behind it?

My favourite wedding photograph is from the first wedding I every photographed by myself, at Watsons Bay in Sydney. There was this massive tree there and I remember taking the picture during sunset with J&A about to kiss under the tree and it was so beautiful in that moment I said to myself, “I want do this for a living”.

What can couples expect when they visit your stand in August?

Well I hope they love all our photographs on display and they will have to jump in our photo booth and take a few fun snaps with all our props.

Are you running any specials on the day?

Yes, 10% off everything from KISSstudio and 20% if you book both our photography and photo booth (minimum 6 hours photography).

Looking forward to meeting all the lovely new couples and their family and friends they bring along.
