"Matt and Jess are AMAZING! Both them as people and what they provide, we couldn’t be happier.

My partner and I can both get a bit awkward when it comes to photos but they made us feel so comfortable and at ease making us laugh and we were able to have heaps of fun with both our engagement and wedding photos. I was left in tears with the moments that they captured for us on the day.

You will not be disappointed with Focus First Films so do yourself a favour and lock them in before you miss out!"
