Two-thirds of this team is composed of former professional internationally-touring musicians, and they bring that character and edge to turn every wedding into a party. Sure, they've heard the wobble a thousand times... but that won't stop them from dancing. Trying to do something a little different than the norm, you'll find their camera bags full of just as many smoke bombs and broken pieces of glass as there are lenses. Black & Hue Photography couldn't be more stoked for the future, because they have the best jobs in the world.
