Hi, I am Elga

I was born and grew up in Latvia, surrounded by pristine landscape, river, and nature. My parents were the first people who inspired me to look at the world through the lens of the camera. Back then, my dad worked as a filmmaker and my mum as a photographer.

After completing my BA degree in Film and Media Studies, I continued developing my skills and gaining more experience as a camera operator and video editor by working for The National News Agency LETA, Edinburgh International Festival, Art in Scotland TV..

The first wedding I recorded was for my friends. I really enjoyed filming their celebration. Since then I have filmed many weddings and my favourite aspect of it is capturing the richness of emotions: the excitement, the joy, the anticipation, the love…

Filming is what I love and using my passion to capture peoples’ memories gives me a sense of fulfilment in my job. I’ve been living in Glasgow for five years now and I call it my home. I love this city with all of its friendliness and gloominess. In my spare time, I play tennis, watch documentary films or read about the latest technology inventions or latest cameras and gadgets.

Hi, I am Ksenia

I was born in Poland, at the seaside. My first photo camera was Smena 8 M. I got it when I was 9. I loved to play with it and made lots of ‘out of focus’ photos.

Many years later, I decided to study history and after earning a master’s degree, I worked as a researcher but was never fulfilled. Only a few years later I found myself helping to film a wedding and I realised that it was matching my needs for creativity, spontaneity, and excitement. I knew that I needed to continue exploring this path.

After five years of shooting weddings, I still feel very excited every time we arrive at the venue. My favourite part of being a wedding videographer is using the art of editing to tell the story of your wedding day and to portray the characters, reactions, moods, atmosphere…

I love to travel (but who doesn’t?) or maybe I more love planning the next trip? And when I plan the trip, I like to do it while listening to the music of John Coltrane, Nick Cave, Sigur Ros, Mum, GusGus or to almost any music from Iceland.

Visual Storytelling by 'Wee Ninjas'

We are both easy going and friendly and prefer a discreet and non-intrusive way of capturing a wedding. Some of our past couples called us 'wee Ninjas', saying that they hardly remembered us filming their special day, which is a great testimony.
