WEDDING FILM + PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM

Welcome! We are a multi-cultural couple from Austin, TX working together to photograph and film weddings all over the world. Culture, travel, and romance ignite our artistic expression within weddings and we look forward to working with like-minded couples. Through our process, we will unveil the extraordinary as well as ordinary to authentically document this big milestone in your lives. 

Chie lives for feeling all the emotions in life -- it's entire range. To know it is possible to capture any of the vast emotions in a single frame inspires her artistic story-telling. Enhancing an individual's perspective of themselves and making them feel confident through the lens feeds her passion for her work. Confidence and emotional awareness are her superpowers. 

Vincent loves to understand people and culture through documentary photography and film. He finds a better understanding of himself and the world as a result and aims to deliver those messages through his work. Understanding and curiosity are his superpowers.

OUR VISION + PROCESS

We create wedding photography and films that embrace culture, spirituality, and artistic expression. Our approach to everything in life, including weddings, starts with curiosity and leads us on a path of understanding and oneness. We collaborate and learn from couples to create a cohesive bodywork that represents who they are in documentary and abstract forms. Our intention is to record memories for lifetime viewing and share each couple's special message for the world.

As a team heading photo+video on a wedding day (Chie|photo, Vincent|film), we synergize each medium across planning, scheduling, day-of execution, and post-production editing. When working together, we combine our creative differences for a robust portfolio. Chie's style is romantic and light, while Vincent's is cinematic and dark. We value the storytelling of both techniques and utilize each other's skillset across various moments of the wedding day.

B I S M A + U S M A N | Elegant, South Asian Wedding

Awarded 3rd Place for Wedding Film of the Year 2022 at WPPI: "That was amazing 😭😭😭 beyond words and belief. I can’t even say it in words. That was truly truly insane, artistic, and heartfelt. You made us both cry like no tomorrow lol.... oh my God….i can’t stop crying all the little details it’s just amazing. I think we are both just speechless." Bisma + Usman Proud to show our latest wedding video for Bisma + Usman. This highlight film features an Urdu poem by Bisma's father and an Islamic hymn sung by her mother. It was a special experience recording these soundbites and learning about their lives. At the end of this video, you can hear the mother tearing up as she explains to me how grateful she is for, “Allah, my God.” Later she told me how she starts every morning with a walk through her garden and marvels at the nature around her, overwhelmed with emotion and awareness that God is truly present. Urdu poetry has a significant cultural history in Pakistan, adding a soulful meaning to the language which is impossible to translate. This poetry form is known to be very dramatic, artistic, and emotive often expressing love for someone. The more I am exposed to the poetry of other languages (we've also done Chinese and Spanish), the more I become curious about the variety and power of language to communicate complex thoughts and feelings. Thanks to Bisma + Usman for inspiring us to produce our most creative film yet! We experienced a lot of joy creating this and we think that this experience will be pivotal in our goal to make impactful photography and video. This video received third place for 2022 Film of the Year at WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International).
