We believe in love; immovable, whole hearted, life changing love. The kind that can put a smile on your face or a lump in your throat. That will see you through the days, both good and bad. A love, just like yours. We’re Heart Stone Films, and we create moving imagery about people and the special times in their lives — films that are as unique and fresh as those they’re about.

How we got into weddings: We love telling stories, we love being married, working together, and spending every moment with each other; we simply love “love” and have experienced it first hand, there’s nothing we love more than capturing the special moments between two love birds to relive for a lifetime.
