established in who knows when?
Well, where do we begin? Josh was born & raised in South Africa and moved here to the quiet location of Brisbane, Australia in 2008. Bianca's parents moved to Sydney, Australia and shortly after had her. In the early summer of 2006 they moved straight to the Sunshine State of Queensland. Although there were/are approximately 2.4 million people in Brisbane city, on a lovely spring morning in late 2008 Josh ended up in Bianca's third grade class. Let's just say that Bianca's cheeks (as they rarely ever) blushed as she developed a small little crush on new boy in her class. Which, unfortunately she would forget about until they became good old best friends in the eleventh grade. Trying to denying every cliché movie relationship ever, Bianca ultimately friendzoned Josh (cry!). But he somehow made it out & the two ended up ultimately together. Yay!
There's our short fairytale love story.
We are firm believers of Jesus Christ. In our relationship & our business we try to live by this passage:
Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end. Love never fails.
We know that every love story out there is different, unique and speical to each individual couple. But we want to try and capture all of that love into photographs & videos. We’re visual story-tellers, we want to capture how your day truly was and all the emotions that came with it. We love authentic, real, emotion. We want you guys to look back on your memories and reflect on your journey together. So, let's totally meet up! Tell us about your funny stories together, your hardships that made you stronger, your hopes and dreams for the future. We want to get to know you as well as we can as we capture some of the most important events of your life.
We hope to meet you soon.
Bianca and Josh
We know how weird and daunting it is to write about yourself. So we've written about each other! Have fun reading our fun little descriptions of each other.
Written by Bianca Aniceto.
“Love God, love others.” That’s the call that Jesus has placed on all of our lives, but I feel like this particular verse explains Josh’s sweet and kind nature. Not once have I ever heard Josh speak negatively about a person. Everything about him is genuine and good. He’s a quiet person at first, but the more you get to you know him the more you realise his strong passion for creativity and for the people around him. Josh’s faith astounds me with how positively he is able to shine the light of Jesus. He’s a reflection of God’s heart. Josh’s creativity comes best when he’s in his element - music. A secret passion of his, but he’s crazy talented at it! And films, Josh is seriously passionate about the creative, in-depth thought process of directors, filmmakers, producers, artists, costume designers etc.
Written by Josh Nadler.
From the outside she is an adorable, young woman who treats everyone with complete love and kindness. But when you get to know her, you see that her heart is as pure as they come. She is an extrovert but appreciates the little moments in life which create beautiful memories. She has a smile which is so contagious, and it is truly hard not to enjoy her company. Her heart is on fire for God and other people, and she strives to be the best person she can. She has strong morals and is extremely diligent. Bianca always sees the best in people and gives them the benefit of the doubt, and she dedicates herself to any task and always gives 100%.
Just sharing a little bit love that was shared with us. Thank you to our beautiful couples who have said such loving and kind words. We wish you guys all the best. Much love, Josh & Bianca.

"Thank you so much Peter & Mae Photography and Videography for capturing the most beautiful moments of our special day. You were super patient, helpful, friendly, and overall made our day so much fun! We are so incredibly happy with all of our photos and the amazing video that was created for us. It was all captured exactly how we remember it, the nerves, the smiles and tears of joy, and of course some silly faces. You are so different to any other photographers we have seen because you managed to capture the real us. We were so excited to see how it all turned out and were absolutely amazed at how we could access all of the photos and the video so soon after the wedding. We really could not have asked for a better photographer/videographer for our wedding day. Love Mr & Mrs Espinoza"

"My experience with Bianca has amazing. The weeks leading up my wedding and the day itself was nothing short of chaotic but having a sweet, understanding and friendly photographer was a Godsend. Bianca worked hard to ensure we were all comfortable, listened to and all the photos we wanted captured were. I appreciated that she didn’t ‘get in the way’ and allowed us to forget about the camera and enjoy the moments. Best of all, the photos came out beautifully and were available within days, which is s testimony to her dedication and skills. I don’t know much about photography but I enjoyed the mix of closeup and distant photos. I loved the different edits and filters of each photo and I honestly couldn’t be happier - in fact we have favoured her photos over the other ‘professional’ photographer we had on the day. I have and will continue to recommend her to any future brides looking for a photographer."

"After participating in a recent stylised shoot with Peter and Mae, I couldn’t recommend anyone else for your photography needs. They cover all basis’s from weddings, engagement to family and creative shoots. They’re both so lovely and easy to get along with making shoots fun and comfortable for all counterparts. You get your photos back edited to the best quality and a huge range to keep. Their business and love of photography comes from the heart making it an even more incredible experience! I highly recommend them!"

"Bianca and Josh, Tim and I want to thank you so much for capturing such beautiful memories from our special day, we couldn’t be happier. You have been so easy to deal with at every step of the way, being both professional and fun. We would 100 % recommend Peter & Mae to anyone looking for professional photographers and videographers."

“We had Josh do our wedding ceremony videography on 25th August 2018 and couldn’t be happier. From the very first point of contact Josh was very professional, kind and understanding. We didn’t want videography for the whole day, just our ceremony and Josh was more than happy to meet our needs. All communication was professional yet down to earth. On the wedding day Josh came to say hello and then like magic he did his thing and we didn’t see him again until he said goodbye. Our guests didn’t even notice him during the ceremony. Considering all the different angles of footage and how much footage he took, it proves the real talent that Josh has to get all of that and not be in our guests way. Our video was beyond perfect. From the music choice, the different angles, the amount of speaking vs Music and capturing ours and our guests emotions was just perfect. Not to mention the turn around time, we had our video about 10 days after our wedding which was really amazing. My husband and I would highly recommend Josh. Michelle & David Flanagan”

“We hired Bianca & Josh from Peter & Mae to capture our wedding day and we are so happy we did. Right from the very start, they were both so accommodating and helpful. We knew Bianca would ace the photos, and Josh really listened to our ideas of what we wanted for our wedding video - and what he put together was perfect. Their work is amazing, everyone loved the way they executed both the photography and videography. The whole process was smooth and easy, we really loved having them a part of our day. We can’t thank them enough for everything they’ve done for us.” - Libby & Callan Hughes

"Bianca was an absolute pleasure to work with, she was very professional and always knew what she was doing. She was positive and joyful all the time during the photo shoot. The photos were excellent and my girlfriend and I were very pleased with the outcome. I’d definitely recommend her to take photos for any occasion, I’d certainly work with her again!”
“Bianca was amazing to work with! She was so lovely and very professional, our photos were incredible and I will 100% be getting her to do any photos I need in the future. So talented, amazing!”
Mitchell + Hayley
“Working with Bianca was a wonderful and easy experience. Out of all the other photo shoots I’ve done, I have never felt as comfortable in front of the camera than when did when I was working with Bianca . I am also so very happy with the album of photos from Peter & Mae Photography & Videography produced. Would 110% recommend her for any photos opportunities in the future."

The photos and video that were taken of our wedding were AWESOME!!! Bianca and Josh were so professional throughout the whole event. I think one of my favourite things was the fact that we didn't even know they were there. They seemed to blend perfectly into the background whilst capturing the most amazing memories of our special day. The quality of the photos and the video was extraordinary. I was hoping to be able to find a couple of photos that I would be really happy with and instead I have so many to choose from that the decision on which ones to print is almost impossible to make. The video is so special.....having horses playing in the background was such a stroke of luck!! ( I wish I could say it was planned but it was just one of those random things ) We can't stop looking at the photos and watching the video. Bianca and Josh have given us such special memories. We cannot thank them enough for the great work they have done. Norm and Sandy
