Today we’d like to introduce you to Bianca and Kyle Thompson.
Bianca and Kyle, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
We are Bianca and Kyle Thompson! Two super passionate, quirky, and eccentric folks currently residing in Central Florida. We had originally met at a British pub and years later re-met at an Irish pub. It was love at first sight, and from then on out, we were practically attached at the hip. This lead to us starting Oak and Iron Photography together and leaving our day jobs to fully commit to photography. Our friends would tell you that our life is like a sitcom and we can’t totally disagree. In 2016 we flew to Seattle, hiked up Rattle Snake Ridge, and said our marriage vows to each other. Then Olive and Spudz came into our lives, the two sweetest kittens you could ever meet, whom have definitely turned our house into a home. Since then, we have continued to travel all over the United States, documenting the stories of so many rad people. From this, we found ourselves constantly being reminded of how everyday calls for a celebration. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, but a little booty shake on way the fridge makes life a little more fun. We absolutely love telling stories through photographs which is exactly why we do this for a living!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We did have plenty of times where we had to step out of our comfort zone and learn things quickly in order to be successful within our business and industry. No one can really prep you for the challenges you will encounter as an entrepreneur and how you will react to them, but we definitely did the best we could and are grateful that it landed us where we are today! We are both natural problem solvers, so most of the time we enjoyed having to figure new things out. We also didn’t really have any options other than to press forward being that this was and is our full time job, so we had to make it work.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
We are a Husband and Wife photography duo located in Central Florida who specialize in wedding and engagement photography but love any type of portraiture! The most important part of our photography is to really show who you are and all the beautiful moments that you are apart of. We like to consider ourselves time lords, giving you the opportunity to go back to these important moments in your life. Our inspiration comes from looking at our old family photo albums, B-rated movies, architecture, paintings, and anything that makes us look at the world with purpose. We wanted to put our own twist on things, and that’s what we set out to do every time we pick up our cameras. We are known for our creative and artist portraits, along with solid candids that show the personality of the people in front of the lens! We are proud that we’ve stuck with our style of wedding photography (and photography in general) even though it was a little “out of the box”.
How do you think about happiness?
As lame as it sounds, life, in general, makes us happy! We chose a career that focuses moments and preserving them, so it’s really made us enjoy not only the big things in life but also the little things. Our two cats and food are also a huge contribution to our everyday happiness.
