ELOPEMENT & WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE RECKLESS AT HEART
WE ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS OF HUMANS IN LOVE
AUTHENTIC. INCLUSIVE. REAL.
WE STRONGLY SUPPORT
VEGANISM / PLANT-BASED LIVING,
EMOTION OVER STUFF,
& LOVE IN ALL FORMS.
We are Benjamin & Carisse, elopement & wedding photographers based in the Mighty Blue Mountains and travelling abroad.
We already love you, and I know this is a match made in heaven (or hell, because inclusion).
We want to shoot your day for who you are, who you want to be, who you’re with,
what you believe in, your hopes and dreams, where you’ve been, where you’re headed, all of it.
You are a fucking amazing individual, filled to the brim with purpose and meaning.
We’re so amped you’re here right now.
SOME OF OUR LATEST WORK
NEW ON OUR BLOG
GET HITCHED HOW YOU WANT, TO HELL WITH THE REST.
We’ve all been to the same old wedding. So do it differently.
Getting ready solo, or with your closest friends. Music playing. Sunlight dispersing through the windows. Laughter. Anticipation. Excitement.
Waiting for your partner under a neon arbour in an old brewery. There’s no straight aisle here. Your guests cheer and light sparklers after you kiss and dance down the aisle.
Sun is setting. You lovers embrace as the sunlight dies. Quiet to hear the breeze breathe and hearts flood.
Toasts. Dancing. Beers. And plenty of ‘em. Decent jams. There’s no way the party’s dying early. Spirits. Bass drops. Drunk uncles. Glad aunts.
Tears. Happiness. Joyful togetherness.
KIND WORDS FROM KILLER FOLK
BETHANY & CALEB
We chose Kings & Thieves based on so much more than just their style (which is already amazing). But we chose to hire them not only because we knew we’d get incredible photos, but because they made us feel good in the process. It was so important to have someone we felt comfortable around and could trust on our wedding day- after all they would be spending as much time with us as our family. And through the process that’s exactly what they became- family.
We couldn’t recommend them enough. They are some of the most down to earth, talented people we’ve ever met.
JORGE & SONIA
We fell in love with the look and feel of Kings & Thieves’ work straight away. It just got better when we met Ben for our first meeting. Ben & Carisse are lovely and made us feel really confident about the whole gig.
We gave them total creative freedom and we feel very satisfied with the results, the shooting was fun and felt like we were hanging out with a good old friend who happens to be a great photographer.
The photos look amazing and we couldn't recommend them enough.
GERALDINE & CHRISTOPHER
Kings and Thieves go that extra mile to make sure they’ve got a good understanding of your day, venue, surroundings and you both as a couple. Professional, quick to get back to you and dedicated.
Ben isn’t that annoying photographer who’s always got his camera awkwardly in your guest’s faces, yet manages to capture all those special moments and reactions. Ben literally photographed non-stop the whole day. He didn’t just wait for those ‘special’ reactions, because he knows those special moments aren’t rehearsed, they are raw and spontaneous. He’ll capture moments that randomly happen even when he’s nowhere near that moment; in fact he managed to capture multiple moments happening simultaneously.
Both Ben and Carisse have open minds and are totally willing to step outside the ‘box’; in fact I don’t think they even have a box in which they work. Which we love. They let you both be you and capture that in your big day. Out of the 10+ photographers we meet with, Kings and Thieves are one of the only photographers to NOT push and tell you how and what should be done photography wise, rather they let you do you.
Ben is super friendly, open minded and genuinely interested in your big day. He won’t make you pose in unnatural awkward poses, and when it’s time to get a little more ‘posed’ you won’t even know you’re posing, because Ben creates natural intimate moments.
Ben is literally like another friend at your wedding who just happens to capture awesome photos. Basically we’re saying he’s not that random stranger you’ve hired to hang around and take photos. He really fits into your crowd in his own unique way. You won’t even know he’s the creeper(in all good ways) in the background snapping away.
You’ll end up with absolutely stunning photos that genuinely and truly capture your day in its raw elements.
We’re beyond grateful and happy we choose Kings and Thieves and they choose us to capture our day.
