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!

''I don't quite know the words to say to Heidi & Rob (Firewood Film), but here goes! We just got out full gallery of photos + video (which included a 10 minute video of our whole day, full video of our speeches and our first dance) and we're completely blown away by it all. It was the most amazing feeling reliving our special day, and these guys captured it perfectly. All the feelings from our wedding day came flooding back and we just watched in complete awe! Both our hearts felt happy!
If you're currently looking for a photographer & videographer for your wedding, these are your guys! Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
Thank you so so so much for capturing the best day of our life, forever happy memories, that'll we'll treasure forever xxxx!

''We cannot recommend Firewood Film enough! Heidi and Rob are such an amazing pair who really are incredible at what they do. They are also the nicest people in the business and such lovely souls to have around!
From a pre-wedding shoot to our actual wedding day, they absolutely nailed the relaxed vibe that we wanted. They captured the pure joy in our day and everyone at the wedding complimented them on their presence on the day and the breathtaking photos and video that they produced. They actually felt like part of the bridal party when we were getting ready!
We cannot wait to use them again for more major life events that are to come!''

''We have been blown away by our experience with Heidi and Robert! They have been nothing but genuinely kind and lovely from the first moment that we contacted them. They blended in to our day so seamlessly and felt like just another one of our friends. They captured our day with such grace and breathtaking beauty. They made sure to get all the little moments that would usually get forgotten but now we have the memories forever!
Our photos are pristine and professional. We got so many to keep forever! Our wedding film is everything we ever dreamed of and wanted!
Don't question about booking them for your wedding or other event. They are worth every penny and make you feel so special! It doesn't feel like it's their job but something they are truly passionate about and capturing the love!
Thank you so so much Heidi and Robert, you guys are amazing humans!! ''

''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 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 + our business in the last 2 years, it has given us time to really reflect on what we want to give back. We believe that positivity, kindness + love will get you through almost anything life throws at you. If the last year has taught us all anything, it's definitely that. We've had the busiest year of our lives + we have another busy season coming up filled with so many amazing couples, venues + beautiful ceremonies!
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
