GET TO KNOW us

BULB CREATIVE.

weddings ~ ELOPEMENTS ~ engagements ~ photo ~ film 

…Everyone is born with creativity; it is part of the human experience and is how we express our individual reality.

Hi, Harley and Ainsley here. We’re the faces behind our baby called Bulb Creative. We are a husband and wife duo who found a passion and a creative outlet in this thing we call photography. From the day we met we both shared a passion for photo and film, not realising that 5 years later we would be tying the knot and starting this business together. We have now been shooting weddings and couples together since 2015. We base ourselves on the Gold Coast, but travel far and wide for most of our work.

We appreciate soft movement, mood and light, all while documenting the unfolding moments of the day. We like to stay away from overly posed or forced moments, and just allow things to happen as they do. We’re always up for a little adventure, which has taken us all over the globe including Australia, New Zealand, USA and Europe. 

Because having a photo + film team that have the same style, flow and vision is so essential, we have decided to welcome this guy called Jarod Lucas to our team who creates magic through films. He will be shooting any short wedding films that you now book with us.

ARE WE THE RIGHT FIT?

… Let’s make a connection and create some magic

 

Connection: Our approach to weddings may not be the same as every other photographer out there. We love to get to know our couples from the get go and make sure we are the right fit to work with you. This is why meeting up or having a phone chat before the big day is so important to us. It really gives us the idea of how well we will click with our couples, as we will be spending a lot of time together on your day and we want you to feel like we’re just friends floating around with a camera.

The Day: We capture your day from all the little bits and pieces to the emotions unfolding around us. We love working with couples who love to be adventurous, love to get romantic, and are getting married in a way that inspires them (not just because they were told to do so). We like to blend into the day but will give direction where it is needed, but ultimately we just want to create some magic and celebrate the two of you in our documentary and wildly romantic way.

Creativity: We don't work from photo lists or Pinterest boards as it restricts our creativity and the organic moments of the day. Each wedding is unique in itself and so can't/shouldn't be recreated.  For us it’s about documenting the day as it naturally happens and your intimate connection. We look for moments where your hair is imperfectly swept across your face, the dress is elegantly dragging and blowing as you move, your hands intimately caressing each other, or some cool light illuminating your gentle embrace.

OUr biggest TIP: Don’t sweat the small stuff. you don’t have to do things just because that’s what people do at weddings. if it doesn’t make sense to you, then scrap it. Just embrace the day for what it is; a celebration of you and your new life partner.
