WHO ARE WE?
We are Jakki & Dwight Tanner…. a husband and wife dynamic duo offering Portrait Photography & Cinematography!
We met while studying Photography at Uni. Long train rides and many assignments later our mutual love for photography, eventually grew into a love for each other, combine that with a passion for capturing beautiful memories and Little Lovebug Photography & Film was born. Working alongside each other creatively has been a perfect fit from the start, and now our shooting styles are so seamless it can be hard to tell which of us took a particular shot.
We love shooting weddings, but when we aren’t working hard or editing we are spending time with Bianca, our 12 year old daughter. We live a simple country life with horses, motorbikes and a house full of our four legged fur babies. We love all the same things you do… because yes, we are just regular people behind the lens.
ABOUT OUR STYLE
We are what people most commonly refer to as natural light photographers, we love to chase the sun to get you moody, authentic shots. We offer gentle direction if needed but opt to capture real unposed moments between you and your new husband/wife. We pride ourselves on making you and your guests feel as comfortable as possible on your day. So… basically we want to have fun with you and not just stick a camera in your face.
On your day we will laugh with you, we will probably cry with you and we will share the incredible moments that make up your story and we take pride in capturing those real memories for you, because some day you will be looking through all of your old photographs, remembering those little things that made you laugh, made you cry and the feelings you felt in those moments and they will be as real to you then, as the day the were captured.
We’ve been in your shoes, spending countless hours planning our wedding. Thinking about every tiny little detail, color schemes, flowers, dress and suit designers. Just like you are now, we searched for the perfect vendors that would help us create the day of our dreams. We endured 2 years of planning and stress for just one “perfect day”……
Perfect…. isn’t exactly how we would describe it.
Don’t get us wrong, it was as they say the happiest day of our lives… so far, but we had our share of wedding day hiccups. We travelled all the way from Queensland to the beautiful village of Leura in the Blue Mountains to be married on Lincoln’s Rock. Only to wake up the morning of our wedding to gale force winds and a bitter cold that none of us were expecting… even though we chose to get married in the middle of winter in the Blue Mountains…
Our photographer, bless her heart called the night before with the bad news she had injured her shooting eye, the plus side was she had another shooter lined up to replace her, and even though he wasn’t who we had planned on he did a fantastic job anyway.
We just want to remind you all that even though you spend countless hours planning every detail, things go wrong. But you know what, no one will ever know. They are all there to celebrate with you and they don’t care if your centre pieces aren’t the exact shade of magenta you ordered.
So embrace it, if the skies open up and pour on your parade, remember to breathe, take it all in. Remember it in every detail, because at the end of the day you are MARRIED to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. And nothing else matters.
