“When we engage in what we are naturally suited to do, our work takes on the quality of play and it is play that stimulates creativity.”
This pretty much sums us up! We are Sam and Ali, the Creative Directors at White Lane Studio and oversee the Photography and cinematography we produce.
If people were to describe us they might say… they are fun and relaxed, yet intensely passionate about what they do, they are calm and in control of whatever the day may bring, yet wildly excited and exuberant when it comes to trying new things. We don’t often talk about ourselves, so reading our couples’ kind words about us might be the best place to start.
We favour the real, the raw and the organic, over the cheesy, the fake pose and the super glossy.
We love the energy and creativity that has been poured into a wedding, the emotions that flow, the words that come forth, that on other days may be left unsaid.
We are so immersed in your day that someone once described us as sensory photographers. We trust our instincts, we chase the light and catch those honest, exquisite moments.
We want the day to be as fun and stress free as possible for you.
5 words that describe us:

A little about our process:
We meet in a café or bar with our couples (or skype) and just spend a bit of time getting to know each other to make sure we are the right fit. We listen to your dreams and help you with any tips, times and plans that we have found seem to work along the way. We like to get to know you, so we can reflect your personalities in your photos and film.
We approach your day as a story to be told; we journal everything that happens, in a candid and natural way, capturing the moments between you and your lover and the whole experience of being loved by the community of people who surround you.
We are accessible any time you need to chat or run something by us.
WHERE ARE WE LOCATED:
We are based on the Central Coast so do lots of weddings along the East Coast of NSW, however we've been invited all over Australia, including Queensland, Melbourne and Perth, and to far flung places like Scotland, Denmark, Fiji, Thailand, New Zealand, New York, Washington DC and Joshua Tree. We are avid adventurers and our bags are packed ready to go!
Couples usually cover accommodation and travel, but if you have a dream to do something wild, we can make anything happen!
