One Hat Sold, Ten Trees Planted

November 04, 2019

Love is a beautiful thing.

Whether it resides in something or someone, we all know how powerful it can truly be. Here at Will & Bear, there are a few things we love; long road trips, camp fires with good company, mother earth, a good hat and of course, each other. But spotting a Will & Bear hat amongst a romantic setting of loved up couples makes us feel like proud parents! From picnic proposals to tying the knot, our beloved hats have seen it all so it’s only natural that we feel honoured to be a small part of someone’s big day.
Lets not forget about the people behind the lens, capturing such loved-filled moments of which we have incredible respect for. Being able to cement those rare moments in time that can never be recreated, turning them into visual recounts of just one day, is truly a celebration of love in its finest form.
So without further ado, let us introduce you to some of our favourites behind the lens on the big day along with a collection of our favourite snaps of the bride and groom on their special day.

An untraditional wedding, elopement, couple, and lifestyle photographer based out of Richmond, Virginia, Peyton shoots both digital & film. Self proclaimed red-headed, knitter, weaver, plant-presser, denim lover and runner, this creative soul can always be found with either   

her 35mm film camera, disposable, or her dad’s vintage Polaroid on her (most likely all 3). With a quieter approach to documenting than most, Peyton finds that her photos are conveyed most truthfully when documented so. This humble attitude is reflected throughout her work.

 

Originally from Paris, Alex Cohen now resides here in Aus where she finally feels at home. A dear friend of ours (and absolute wizard behind the lens) Alex’s infectious personality shines through every single photo she takes and her wild,   

adventurous side is something we adore too. She has a natural knack for making anyone in her presence feel at ease, which is seen throughout her intimate style of wedding photographs.

 

Wedding Photographer Joel Aston AKA Barefoot & Bearded has been capturing moments of love all over the globe for 4 years now and always, barefoot. Based in Newcastle (yet never actually there) Joel also runs an elopement collective business   

dubbed ‘Anteloping’ and co-runs photography workshops in Mt Hotham, Victoria. With his rebellious style that go against the grain find him swaying less toward the traditional side and more toward the uniqueness of each couple.

 

Having been recently married to Husband Trent, Sarah knows first hand what it’s like to be on one side of the lens to the other. Based in Ohoka, NZ, Her many years in the Wedding realm has helped develop her own fun, unstructured style through allowing moments to unfold naturally whilst being   

ready to record them forever. Focusing on the importance of facilitating a cool, calm, collected atmosphere from the lead up, right until the big day is core to her work practice. This means couples can relax and enjoy their day, almost stress free and this can surely be seen in all of her images.

 

Husband, brother, and creative soul, Alex Johns got a glimpse into the photography world when he shot his first wedding at just 17 years old! Now, after being within the industry for a number of years, Alex enjoys putting the focus on quality time   

spent between the bride, groom and their loved ones rather than the flowers, the music and the cake. His genuine approach can be seen in his work, capturing those incredibly special moments that no amount of styling could ever replicate.
