Welcome

to Folktales

HELLO, HOW ARE YOU?

Thanks for stopping by. Let us introduce ourselves.

Folktales is a wedding videography and photography business based in Perth WA but we love to travel abroad as well as close to home.

We are passionate about our documentary style shots. We like to keep your wedding photos and video natural and fun. Folktales is run by me(Ash) & my partner in business and life Alex along with a team of shooters and editors. 

We have been running our business for two years and have loved watching it grow. When we aren't at a wedding, we are at home with our two beautiful ragdolls Winston & Archer behind the computer editing precious memories. We are very committed to our business and our reputation.

Alex is the main video editor and is also a videographer and photographer. He has a unique, fun and creative style that shines through on our highlight videos and finished products, he likes to make people cry with happiness. Alex has a passion for editing and loves to spend his days behind the computer perfecting your wedding film.

I am the the other half of the team, I focus on client liaison, graphic design, photo editing, video editing and of course I am a videographer and photographer as well. I love to direct people into the perfect pose and I am always on the look for that “perfect” shot that will WOW the couple. I absolutely love being apart of a girl’s wedding day, and my love for bridal cakes and bouquets is obvious with the photos I post! I love watching the emotions throughout a wedding day that sometimes even have me on the verge of tears!

The best part about us, is that we work together as a team. Always bouncing new ideas and creative thoughts to one another to grow our business and capture weddings in the best way possible. 

We love weddings. We love our job. Here at Folktales this is not just our job. It is our passion. Spending our working days capturing and editing the most important moments of people’s lives is priceless.

No two tales are the same, let us tell yours …

"Nathan and I are truly so thankful to Ash and Alex from Folktales for the most incredible gift we could have received on our wedding day.

They travelled all the way from Perth to capture our wedding in Christchurch New Zealand.

Ash and Alex made us feel so comfortable in the lead up, they were always so easy to keep in touch with via email and Facebook. Our family said they felt like Ash and Alex were friendly, exciting and organised.

Our images are incredible, they were able to capture us and our day perfectly. We would 100% recommend Folktales to capture your special moments. They are professional, inspiring and creative. Thank you so much Ash and Alex!"

"A huge thank you to Ash and Alex from Folktales for immortalising the best day of our lives on film.

Watching the video back, we were overwhelmed with the attention to detail with which these talented individuals captured our wedding day!

Ash and Alex, you guys go above and beyond; from being so prompt with answering questions before the big day to be being our little emergency liaisons and telling our story with as much care and passion as if you were telling your own.

If any prospective newly weds are reading this: CHOOSE THEM!! You won't regret it!"

"Thank you so so so much Ash and Alex for capturing our wedding day!

We have never had any kind of photography done so to say it was uncomfortable and nerve wracking to be photographed for the first time on your wedding day is an understatement but from the moment they came in and started taking photos here and there we became more and more comfortable.

We recommend Folktales to anyone who asks and everyone who has seen our photos are so impressed (especially because they know we are so not photogenic haha).

Even down to the details of the packaging and presentation of the USB and cd's that were sent to us in the mail it was just lovely.

We loved having you guys thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being part of our wedding day, it was amazing spending it with you!"

"To anyone thinking of hiring a videographer for their wedding, I would highly recommend Ash and Alex.

They really went above and beyond to capture all the special memories of our big day (even carefully removing a window to film from the outside in due to strange spot I sat to get my makeup done!)

They kept us laughing and in good spirits (even when it poured) and made sure we were well looked after. One of our best decisions for our wedding. Can't thank them enough for creating something so beautiful"

"All I can say, is that the quality of the work you provide is outstanding!
I know Ash & Alex from back at school, but I don't think that changed anything at all. The day was so comfortable, yet so professional and also relaxed at the same time. I cannot begin to express how thankful I am to have Folktales capture our day. By far THE best thing about our day. All of the emotions captured and put into a video. So much talent. You are amazing! I cannot recommend you enough to anybody. For both photography and videography - your work is just incredible! I am so thankful for the handful of photos you also took. My favourites!

Thank you for playing a massive roll in our special day"

"Just received our wedding highlight video from these amazing people Ash & Alex from Folktales. Would highly recommend these guys to capture your special moments.

Not only are they professional and passionate at what they do, they are such lovely people too and was so happy that they could be apart of our special day.

I know when planning a wedding its so hard to pick from so many vendors and picking the right photographer and videographer is so important to capture your special day.

When looking through facebook pages and websites we were happy to go with Folktales and was confident they were going to do a great job and did an amazing job"
