Wedding photography, wedding videography, wedding stationery – if it starts with ‘w’ and ends in ‘y’, chances are The Story of Us has a hand in it. A team of creative Sydney folk, they’re easy-going, super talented and are ‘quite obsessed with storytelling’. Also importantly, they’re the kind of people you’ll quickly consider friends.
Here we take five to talk about their bespoke approach to capturing weddings and the rise of dessert stations.
Hey guys, can you tell us a bit about what you do?
We make creative ingredients for your wedding.
What is the main advantage for couples who work with you?
Because we’re quite obsessed with storytelling, we don’t work from templates or do the same thing over and over again. We really love getting to know our couples and using creativity to represent their love story as the unique and special thing that it is.
Can you share some of the things that go on behind the scenes?
We do a lot of brainstorming as a creative team. No one is an island, we bash ideas around and call on each other to help make our work the best it can be. We talk a lot about colour and music and flowers and dresses!
Do you think there are any preconceptions about the wedding industry?
Everyone asks us if we have to deal with “Bridezillas” but we usually make friends with our couples because the people who come to us are so lovely and open and excited about their day that they are a pleasure to work with.
What are some of the main questions couples ask you? And what are the answers?
Do we need multiple cameras/shooters? And we really recommend keeping the team lean. We find that the outcome is better when one person has creative autonomy, they don’t get in each others shots and the vibe on the day is much more chill when there’s one or two cameras only.
Can you describe what sets your business apart?
We aren’t tech-heads or sticklers for rules. We do what we need to to tell the best possible story with our work. We work intimately with design, image and music to create treasured films, photos and design and get the biggest tummy-butterflies when people love the outcome.
What’s your next predicted wedding trend?
Ice cream! In pop-up carts, food trucks and dessert stands.
