Telling authentic stories of love & connection.



What our lovely couples have said...

Sam and Dani are true treasures. The kindest, most genuine and down to earth people you will ever meet. My wife Patti first met Sam via Facetime and instantly knew we wanted to work with them. After their call, she couldn’t wait to tell me that we had found our cinematographers. They were not only a husband and wife duo that could do both photo and video, but that they were also super nice people and Sam had lived in Melbourne, in the same suburb we currently live in now. It must have been fate that we met.

Sam & Dani are true professionals, masters at their craft. They’re great listeners and have a knack at understanding our vision and bringing it to life. Their relaxed and gentle approach throughout our time in Greece made us feel comfortable and at ease, which allowed them to capture precious, quiet and candid moments. They are incredibly talented with an eye for beauty and artistry. We are over the moon with our photos and video!! We’ve watched it about 600x and have shown all our family and friends. Everyone is genuinely super impressed with the stunning cinematography (they’ve saved their details for when it’s their turn to get married!). We formed a genuine partnership and are so happy to have met them. We now call them forever friends.

We've probably watched the film about 20 times now and every time I still cry ... THANK YOU for helping us re-live this magical day, and taking us right back to those moments that are so special to us and our family and friends - you really captured the essence of who we are as a couple, and I am so speechless, seriously. We love this so so so much and thank you both of being such troopers through the rain and the cold, and for creating this film that just has sooo much feels. Can't wait to share this with our relatives and friends!!!

We probably Watched it 20x times!

Watch their film

I cannot believe how lucky we are to have had them capture the most special time of our lives. They are the kindest, most genuine people, with such a talent for recording and conveying raw emotion and love. Their work is breathtakingly beautiful -- see for yourself. Their style is in their name: cinematic. If you want a wedding video that is truly epic, hire these wonderful people.

From start to finish, Sam and Dani were an absolute gift to us. They were kind, caring, flexible, understanding, compassionate, professional, and true masters of their craft. I would not have changed a single thing about my experience with them, and I could not have asked for a better end incomparably magical film that my husband and I will cherish for a lifetime, and two new amazing Irish friends. We love you, Cinematic Tide!!!!!

I cannot believe how lucky WE ARE...


So did all the family - it brought a tear to everyone's eye! I had been meaning to message you to thank you both for being so amazing as I'm sure you know from dealing with us - we are a little slow on some of these things!! But yes we LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!

- Dana & Rob

We absolutely loved it!!

From our initial skype meet-and-greet to the wedding day, they were kind, open to suggestions, and helpful. They were concerned with making sure they understood what we wanted from our wedding photos and video, but also stayed true to their amazing creative and artistic skills. The resulting photos and video are absolutely stunning and are treasures that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. They are truly talented at what they do and made our photography/video dreams come true. Not to mention - Sam and Dani are a blast to hang out with in person. They are both instantly warm and welcoming people from the moment you meet them. So many of our family members commented to us how much they enjoyed having Sam and Dani around! We are beyond happy to have chosen Sam and Dani to capture our wedding day!

- Alysee and Jake

Sam and Dani are an absolute dream.



Elopements & Weddings Start Here

tailored & planned for you


We fell in love with weddings 12 years ago because we saw how empowering telling stories of human connection, relationships and families remind us of who we are and what is important in life.

There’s something powerful about honesty and authenticity. For us there are no staged or weird poses. Sure we will give you some direction as you have never done this before. But the rest is up to you to create those moments together!

It doesn't matter if it's small and intimate weddings or elopements, big, grand and elegant weddings. We want to create intentional stories that mean something to you.
