Behind The Brand

Your best pieces of advice for event planning?

Chose great suppliers and then TRUST them to deliver. When you have chosen professionals whose work you love, you really can just let go and let them do their thing, so that you can relax and enjoy your day!


What was the spark for White Lane Studio? Where did the story begin?

White Lane began in a visual art class. Sam was working on a film for his body of work and I (Ali) was his art teacher. We became friends and loved to brainstorm imaginative ideas – we had a healthy competition to see who could be the most creative. Sam was asked to shoot a wedding, and he asked me along to capture it with him. People loved the photography and films we produced – and within a year we had weddings nearly every weekend. He finally convinced me to quit my job and now we are both doing it full time.


What inspires you creatively?

Artists who are out there doing unusual things and pushing boundaries. And creative jam sessions with friends.


Most memorable place you’ve travelled?

Ooh that’s a hard one. For me either Morocco or Mexico. Sam loved Malta. I think we have a thing for M’s.


On a typical weekend we’ll find you?

Shooting weddings most Saturdays. Hanging with the fam on Sundays and curling up on my back deck, with a book and cup of tea, and probably getting jumped on by my pup.  You’ll probably find Sam out surfing or chilling with his beautiful girlfriend, Holly.
