I'm Mardy Bridges, owner and operator at All My Wednesdays. Previously my business was named after me, but after some soul searching I decided to rebrand to something more interesting, with more room to evolve.
I try to run my business in a way that reflects my personality and values. Because of this I choose to focus on smaller weddings, charge affordably and create work that is simple, beautiful and honest. I love to work with couples who are planning a wedding that is unique to them and want their photographs/film to reflect their one of a kind relationship. You do you, and I'll do the rest.
That's the work side of things; outside of weddings I love movies, art, good food and old music. I dabble in painting and drawing, I like to make my friends laugh and dance badly to live music. Often those two go hand in hand. If there's anything else you'd like to know, get in touch!
Frequently Asked Questions...
How do you shoot both photography and video at the same wedding?
The short answer, a lot of practice, the long answer here. If you are considering the photography and video package I highly recommend checking out this blog post where I go into how I shoot photography and video together, and what my clients can expect from me.
Can we meet in person before the big day?
I love to meet my clients so that we can chat about their plans for their wedding day. My workspace is in Brunswick East - I'd love to meet you in a nearby cafe or wine bar for a drink. If Brunswick East is too far for you, I can meet you in the CBD at a cafe, bar or late night ice cream joint that I love or we can FaceTime, Skype or do a phone call instead! Weekends can be tricky because I’m often shooting weddings, but I have the occasional Sunday free and I can meet on weekdays during or after business hours.
Why do you only shoot weddings of 130 guests or less?
I only get to spend one day with your guests, but I like for them to get to know me a little so that they feel comfortable while I'm wandering around pointing a camera at them. Not only do I enjoy my work more that way, I also get better shots and do a better job. If you really love my work I do make exceptions, but it will likely involve an additional cost for a second shooter to ensure that you get full coverage at your reception.
Will you travel for weddings and if so how much do you charge?
Can I involve my pets in the wedding/my dog will be at the house during prep and he's real big is that ok?
