So Odd Socks Society is just us two. We've loved working together since we met as photography students slinging beers at a bar. Our love originated the old fashioned way. Girl meets boy on her first day of work. Boy quickly falls in love with girl. Girl lets boy chase her for the better half of a year. Girl decides she can’t live without boy. It’s a tale as old as time.
Xave is a West Australian by birth, kicking off his first 3-4 rotations around the sun in Derby, right up the top of WA before his parents packed up their things and the kids to make the long diagonal trip down to the Surf Coast of Victoria.
Storm’s story is an even longer one, if we’re talking kilometres. Born in Durban, South Africa (where Mick Fanning punched a shark that time) Her and her mum made the life changing migration to Perth when Storm was 12. Now nearly 15 years later Storm is the dual passport wielding badass that still calls Perth home. So here we are in Melbourne, Australia 2020 in the midst of a global Pandemic. Storm misses her Mum dearly, there were plans to see her in April; and Xave, well he’s never really lived anywhere other than Victoria so why not?
We’re a couple of dorks with cameras who dig nothing more than working together to tell the stories of people in Love. But, what is Love? Science says that it’s a combination of chemicals in our brain triggered to give us all the good feels about another human. Something along those lines anyway.
So science has an answer, what about you? We reckon there’s no straight answer, the universe is gonna decide for you anyway. For us, love is like a pair of Odd Socks, pretty goofy looking but still warm and fuzzy. Now we’re not saying you’ve got to align your relationship with an item of clothing, although we’d like to know what you come up with. So let us point our lenses your way, show us all the reasons you’re saying “Yep, this is the one” and we will make the wedding experience as easy going as possible.
Storm is South African born, Perth raised and Melbourne Based! The first thing Storm does when she get's home is change into her pajamas. She has a obsession for soft things, fluffy animals and making your videos all sorts of dreamy. Amongst the chaos of your wedding day, look to this sweet soul for support.
