Our Story

On one lovely Autumn evening in 2016, an Instagram account @twosimilareyes was created. Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine this name would represent a profession that we now are so passionate about and fond of. Two Similar Eyes hopes to continue documenting bona fide moments that will last for those in love and of those who are dear to them.

We are Kevin and Heena and we are husband and wife wedding photographers based in Sydney Australia. There are a few common things about us two. We are both followers of Jesus, obsessed with juicy Ethiopian coffees, love travelling and collecting memories through photographs.

However, we later found out that we had lots of differences and that was okay. There was a lot to learn from each other and we wouldn't have made it to where we are without one another.

I'm Kevin

I was told by my parents that, from a young age, I was a sensitive kid. I was particularly sensitive to others' emotions. Naturally drawn to this aspect of humanity, I grew up noticing the smallest hints of people's emotions through their behaviours.

At the age of 12, our family moved to the other side of the hemisphere, New Zealand, from Korea where I was born and raised. Immediately faced with a huge barrier of language and racism, I had no choice but to use my instincts to adapt to survive in the alien environment all throughout my high school days.

It didn't take too long for me to hear, "I thought you were born here". In hindsight, all I really did was carefully observing how others around me behaved. Often I was able to connect with them quickly on a personal level by recognising their emotions and identifying with them when I truly felt it.

My power of observation and emotional connection is what I continue to hold as one of my strengths as a photographer till now.

I'm Heena

Whenever I think of the word 'Dad', my eyes instantly start to fill up with tears. As far as I can remember, my dad has always been around making precious memories of me. There was a camera with him all along those times. It was the Nikon F2 (now a 40+ year old film camera which he passed onto Kevin as a gift last time we visited Korea) and he loved photographing moments that would've otherwise been forgotten by now.

My dad, his old camera and the photos he left for me. All of these mean the world to me.

Naturally, I grew up with many cameras at home and I also became a hoarder of memories. It's amazing how a piece of paper and some ink on it can take you right back to that particular moment frozen in time.

Interestingly, when I met Kevin, I had the strong feeling that I could continue doing this with him throughout the rest of our lives together, creating precious memories as our keepsakes for life.
