LET LOVE DO
1st September 2021
Hi, Hey, Hello! If you have found yourself here, it means you may be slightly intrigued to see who is behind Firewood Film. We are Heidi + Robert, a Husband and Wife team! We have been together nearly 10 years, engaged for 4 and married for 1 year. We bought our first home back in 2017 and have spent 5 years making it into a home. We also have a gorgeous, chubby British Shorthair called Thunder; He's definitely the master of the house!
As a duo we create real, raw and meaningful experiences with our cameras, meeting new people and hearing about their journeys is special to us. It helps us create a clear picture of who you are as people.
Photography and Filmmaking has always been such a huge part of our relationship, the urge to document anything and everything lingered within us. We believe photography is a gift and we are truly blessed to be able to capture time; To be able to relive 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, watch american series, go to gigs and we love animals!!

''WE Could not recommend Firewood Film enough!!!
Heidi and Rob are amazing, we booked an adventure shoot as we really want some nice photos of us to have, and they went above and beyond. The sneak peeks were sent the following day and we were already in love, when we received our full gallery we instantly knew picking photos to print would be such a hard job! Heidi and Rob are such a lovely couple, they made us feel so comfortable straight away and the time spent with them just felt like being with friends, time flew by. We will 1000% be booking another shoot with Firewood Film, it was such fun and we would recommend anyone doing a shoot with them even if you aren’t planning a wedding. Thank you again!''

''We cannot recommend Firewood Film enough. From start to finish they have been so incredible and informative. From our first emails pre covid to our wedding day and after receiving our photos and incredible feature film we are so happy we chose them.
On the day they slotted in with us and our guests, they made everyone feel very comfortable and you forget they are even there because you’re so comfortable with them.
10000% will recommend to anyone.
Thank you so much again for making our day so memorable!!''

''If we could give 10/5, we would! Where to begin, Rob & Heidi are absolutely delightful. Right from the initial message, they were friendly, informative and excited (which made us even more so!). After booking them for our wedding, we decided to book a mini shoot to get to know them before the big day - HIGHLY recommend (even if its just to hang out - they are fab!).
They travelled to us as we got engaged where we currently live, so this place was special to us and we wanted to capture it (which was a few hours round trip!). When they arrived, we knew straight away how special they are and how at ease we would be. They are so friendly and the shoot was so much fun! We initially paid for 150 photos and received nearly 200 as Heidi said she loved them all which we were so grateful for!!
It was just like hanging out with friends and we are SO excited to have them with us on our wedding day!''

''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!''
Paige + Peter
''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!!''

jOY AND LEWIS
"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 have learnt a lot about ourselves and our business in the last 3 years. We have documented so many incredible weddings, met amazing new friends and had the time of our lives building our dream life. We believe that positivity, kindness and 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 2 years of our lives and we have another busy season coming up filled with so many amazing couples, venues and beautiful ceremonies.
By 2020 we found ourselves fully booked, we were so ready to quit our full time jobs and focus solely on our business but when the pandemic hit, we lost 80% of our bookings that year. Luckily for us we held on to our current jobs. We remained positive throughout and did everything we could to support our couples while also navigating our own wedding and lives.
We began capturing friends weddings in 2017-18 for almost nothing to gain experience, 2018 we found ourselves booking our first paid wedding 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 with finding our signature style and 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 to look back on. I guess we always knew we wanted to share our journey with the world.
