It’s 2017 and halfway through a wedding – while the couple enjoy their food – we’re having a bite to eat ourselves and chatting about how much we enjoy working together.
Having both had our own successful solo photography businesses for several years we realised that it’s much more enjoyable working with a mate. In fact, we came to the conclusion that we enjoyed working together so much, and had been to so many weddings together, we decided it may be time to finally “tie the knot” ourselves and launch a new business. We’re very different in many ways – Steve is a dog person (he has two) and I have a cat. He loves his meat and I’m a veggie. He’s a beer man and I prefer coffee. But one thing we very much agree on is our passion for taking great pictures and being people people we’ve realised we absolutely love shooting weddings.

We scoured the local area for the perfect venue for our new studio and being Washington lads we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to rent the old church in Columbia that was formerly a pilates studio. Partly because it’s an awesome building with loads of history, but also because it has a full-size mirror ideal for photographing our dance clients.
Why Mission Studios?
Our building is old and having looked into it’s we discovered that it was the old mission of Holy Trinity church in Washington Village. That sparked an idea and Mission Studios was born. We’ve been hard at work over the last few weeks getting the branding sorted and the building ship-shape ready to launch and now we’re good-to-go.
We liked the idea of Mission for another reason too as we always make it our mission to give our clients the best possible customer experience. Whether we’re shooting your wedding, taking awesome portraits, capturing your event or promoting your business.
We’re both really excited about having our own studio – me especially as it’s in walking distance of my house.
As well as being a great venue to shoot in we also have the facility to make corporate videos, develop websites and deliver photographic training too.
We’d like to invite you to spread the word by sharing links to the new website and liking our Facebook page so you can keep up to date with all the latest developments.
We also have a range of launch offers available so watch this space and help us to make Mission Studios a huge success.
