We are a photographer/filmmaker duo – Lucy Spartalis and Alastair Innes – working seamlessly side by side to capture your stories in a creative, engaging and bold style.
Introduced ten years ago by a mutual friend outside our favourite Melbourne pub, we soon began dating and sharing our work with each other, and immediately realised how perfectly suited our styles were. Very quickly, She Takes Pictures He Makes Films was born.
We work stealthily and unobtrusively, capturing real moments as they happen, and helping you to relax and enjoy your day. Never overcrowding you, or asking for awkward smiles from you and your guests – most of the time you won’t even notice we’re there. After all, your day shouldn’t be one big photoshoot, or feel like a film set – it’s a celebration for you and those you love (and a chance for a truly cracking party).
When the time comes for the portrait session, we’ll help guide you through the process (we know how hard it can be to pose for photos!) and will help you to create truly unique, artistic images to frame and treasure.
We’ll capture all the details – the little things that you miss, the huge moments you never want to forget – and we’ll stay as long as you need us to… we may even join you on the dance floor.
No wedding is too big, or too small; no plans are too extravagant, or too stripped-back. We’re thrilled to get to work with incredible and diverse couples around the world, and we’d absolutely love to hear from you.
