LET LOVE DO
1st September 2021
Hi, Hey, Hello! If you found yourself here, it means you may be slightly intrigued to see who is behind Firewood Film. We are Heidi + Robert, a Husband + Wife team! We have been together nearly 9 years, engaged for 2 and half years + married just a few weeks ago at the start of September! As a duo we create real, raw and meaningful experiences through our cameras.
Photography + Filmmaking has always been such a huge part of our relationship, the urge to document anything + everything lingered within us. We believe photography is a gift + we are truly blessed to be able to capture time; To be able to re live it all over again. We are true romantics at heart and we love, love!
We love to explore the outdoors, drink copias amounts of tea, cats, dogs, anything with fur + 4 legs to be completely honest with you. We also love a good documentary + gigs!

''We have had a whole journey with firewood film, our wedding photos + videography right back when they started up, our pregnancy shoot and now we are waiting for our photos back from our adventure shoot with our little girl! Rob + Heidi are a breath of fresh air, they are cool and calm even with a stressed hot baby in 30 degree weather! Their photos are raw and honest! they never disappoint and we would never go anywhere else for our family/occasion photos. I couldn't recommend them more they have become our friends through our photoshoots and we love them both!!

''Yesterday we had the most gorgeous pictures taken by Heidi and Robert, what a beautiful family I have! I was really unsure on what they'd turn out like as i am awful infront of a camera, but honestly - unreal!! i'm in love!
''Robert and Heidi captured so many wonderful, natural moments. they made everyone feel at ease and half the time, we forgot they were there, all our guests commented how brilliantly they blended in and how their friendly and relaxed vibe was perfect for our day.
so far we’ve seen a handful of previews but are blown away by what they’ve produced!''

"On the wedding day they felt like part of the family and we had so much fun! With Robert doing the film and Heidi busy taking photos, they were the best team. - Both the photos and videos were everything we dreamed of and we will hold them dear for the rest of our lives! Perfect memories of our perfect day and not to mention the gorgeous handmade box and memory card we received them in. Would recommend them 1000x over'"
We finally have the time to focus on our business full time, we want to give everything we have to all of our clients that are on this journey with us. We have learnt a lot about ourselves and our business in the last year, it has given us time to really reflect on what we want to give back. We are now nearly fully booked for 2021 and 2022 is filling up just as fast. We believe that positivity, kindness and love will get you through almost anything life throws at you. If this year has taught us all anything, it's definitely that.
By 2020 we were finding ourselves fully booked, we were so ready to quit our full time retail jobs and focus solely on our business but when the pandemic hit, we lost 80% of our wedding bookings that year. Luckily for us we held on to our jobs which helped us get through! We remained positive throughout and did everything we could to hold on, things started to pick up and there was light at the end of the tunnel!
We began capturing friends weddings in 2018 for almost nothing to gain experience, 2019 we found ourselves booking our first paid weddings which was super exciting. We also started to work with many small businesses', models and general lifestyle shoots which helped build our growing portfolio. This also helped us massively with finding our signature style and of course giving us time to practise our craft
We spent a lot of time outdoors, visiting new places and going on holidays. We almost always had our camera with us, we had this urge to document everything we did and saw. Looking back, we're so glad we have all of the memories captured in high quality images and films. I guess we always knew we wanted to share our journey with the world and of course our future children
