If you're looking for a Melbourne wedding photographer you're in the right place!
We've been wedding photographers in Melbourne for over three decades- that's a lot of experience.
Thirty years of Melbourne wedding photography conditions a level of preparedness in a photographer that can't be learnt off the internet or a wedding photography program.
You can book us with peace of mind.
Our black and white wedding photos shown above, feature the use of soft diffused lighting and dynamic range imagery to provide a timeless quality to conventional locations. Beautiful places like those shown here benefit from the gentle light which emphasises texture, shape and form. Our world-class equipment provides outstanding dynamic range to faithfully record our creative perspective of your wedding day. It is an advantage having a photographer who is thoroughly familiar with modifying light as needed to provide exceptional photos.
The wedding photography featured below is from a popular Melbourne venue. We were quite lucky during the post-wedding photo session- there had been torrential rain in the previous 24 hours, but we were spared on the day we took these pictures. Always ensure you have a backup plan- when you need it, a wet weather location should be there on a moment's notice. Preview any wet weather locations just prior to the day, so there are no surprises when you turn up. Melbourne wedding photographers know many great spots, our studio has established relationships with many conventional and unusual, exciting wedding photography venues, so your pictures will have character- something that makes them uniquely yours.
Artists use their medium to convey a message through their work- to the viewer. The wedding photography creates subtle compositions which capture the mood and atmosphere of the occasion- or he or she may choose a bold, definitive style, in the same way that choices are made regarding makeup, or hairstyles.
In the wedding photography series above, each image sends a message to the viewer. Each image portrays a different mood and prompts a different audience response. Our photographic style is warm and engaging- we know how to set the tone, create the image, get the art direction happening, and finesse the lighting, all perfectly, and quickly. Ideally you engage a professional photographer to create this magic for you, to work with a skillset only a few people with cameras really have. When the mix is right, amazing wedding photography is the end result.
There is so much more to the best wedding photography than simply picking up a camera, regardless of brand or model- and snapping away in an unleashed manner. Melbourne wedding photographers work with the elements of light, location, timing and most importantly- people- to create and document heart warming images for clients.
Wedding Photography holds a place in the hearts of the bride and groom, and this becomes more evident as time moves on. Look at the works of artists from previous generations who are no longer available to explain the meanings behind what they created. Their work communicates long after the creator has gone- in the same way a wedding photograph communicates a powerful emotional message long after the day is over. No words are necessary. Wedding photographers use the medium of photography to communicate the message; to present and preserve the wedding photographer's interpretation of the events of the wedding day through the medium of photography. If you are looking for a Melbourne wedding photographer to record and preserve your wedding day, consider the interpretive style of the photographer and how it echoes your preferences for what you like about great wedding photography.

Glamorous, exciting, unique and very chic- this is the wedding photography Melbourne brides are choosing. We offer a range of wedding photography packages which can be tailored to your precise budget and needs. You might prefer to simply have a complete set of edited photos on DVD, to print at an outlet of your choice, or have us prepare a high resilution soft-copy wedding album. We shoot in gorgeous environments that are the hidden jewels of top Melbourne wedding photographers - locations that might seem ordinary but transform into spectacular settings when captured by skilled, talented professionals. The Wedding Photographers Melbourne team of artisans can capture the fun and excitement of your wedding day through the medium of photography.
In the wedding photography shown below, we present pictures from recent real weddings in Melbourne. These are shown throughout a variety of settings. All the wedding photography shown here, and throughout the website was photographed on the wedding day, either before or after the marriage ceremony. From Melbourne Airport to amazing photography locations within the inner city precinct, we have been to some stunning, very photogenic environs to create these images. In contrast, some of the wedding photography shown here is from a Melbourne Wedding Reception Venue which features a very plain front yard you wouldn't normally look at.
The Wedding photography featured in the top gallery shown above, depicts a bridal couple on their wedding day enjoying the Park Hyatt Hotel. Featured settings are the magnificent grand staircase and ground level foyer. Our skilled use of lighting and lenses especially designed for wedding photography in locations such as these, ensures your wedding day photos will be stunning and memorable. The most important ingredient in a wedding photographer's toolkit is vision- without it he is only a snapper at best. We bring a unique visionary style to our photography at your wedding, see plain locations transformed into the spectacular, by utilising techniques that work! Any location you select for your wedding photography session will be shown at its most photogenic best, with the amazing lighting and equipment we use in our wedding photography.
The wedding photography in this gallery utilises what most people would regard as quite an ordinary setting within the Melbourne City business precinct- an inconspicuous inner city lane with graffiti you wouldn't look at twice. Judicious selection of the elements within the scene have combined to make this a striking backdrop for the wedding photos featured here.
Melbourne wedding photographers are spoiled for choice- there is so much diversity within a small area here in this culturally vibrant city. Beautiful public gardens, stately buildings with exteriors reminiscent of a bygone era, as well as the iconic locations of Docklands, Flinders Street Station and Parliament House.
The wedding photography in the series of photos below, shows a Bram-Leigh Wedding, taken in different photo locations within the front garden. The picture at the right of the row shows the use of our Hollywood lighting on location, transforming a tiny section of the garden into a mini forest, stunning for this style of wedding photography. This lighting enabled us to recreate the look of a deep dark European forest or woodland setting, without having to leave the reception venue grounds.
Wedding photography relies on and benefits from the skilled use of lighting, careful meticulous composition, choice of camera and optics, among many other things. Different styles of light- natural, artificial or a combination of both can lend their own interpretation to a scene. Add to this the vast range of light modifiers available, and you have an unlimited set of photographic opportunities present within a given scene.

Our Melbourne wedding photographer service provides artistic wedding photography throughout Melbourne and Australia's most spectacular wedding and wedding photography locations. Whether your wedding is in the city, out in the mountains, on a wild windswept ocean beach or an outback wedding location, we've probably been there before to shoot a wedding! We can offer location advice, and save you from making one of the five primary planning mistakes that trap the uninitiated.
We've photographed weddings for more than two decades - per team member - that's more wedding photography individually than most of the mushroom-style Facebook photographer studios have, combined. Follow this link for examples of Wedding Photography in the Melbourne CBD and surrounds.
Some of the Melbourne wedding photographers we have seen, shoot candid images, as though you have got a friend taking photos. These wedding photographs really are natural shots - in the truest sense - but they may not necessarily be the style of images you want as a final collection of wedding photography with which to remember such a significant day. The photos might not look as though a professional shot them - they might not show you in the most flattering light. Consider carefully whether or not casual shots are what you want to look back on in the years ahead. They're great as part of a wedding photography mix - and ideally your wedding photographer should be adept at creating artistic wedding photos as well!
Some wedding photographers compose their images carefully, and make your entire wedding photography session look staged. This might be fine for portrait shots; it's great to have beautifully composed images on the wall as art pieces for all time, but if the entire wedding day was photographed in this style, then the photography would not reflect the reality and candour of the wedding day as it unfolded.
An ideal wedding photography mix is a combination of both candid and posed shots - and that's what the Wedding Photographers Melbourne studio specializes in. Follow the link to read about choosing a wedding photographer for your Melbourne wedding.
You can have the Wedding Photographers Melbourne team design and produce your own wedding album for you - from a simple photo book in a coffee table format, to a complex magazine wedding photo album or a bevel cut designer album design with a one meter wide panorama. All you need to provide us with is a complete set of wedding photos on DVD or memory stick, and we'll do the rest! Whether we create a print ready set of files and page layouts for you, or produce your wedding photo album from start to completion - you can save money and still have a fantastic finished album. Read more about our wedding album design and manufacturing service to help you archive and present your precious wedding photos for all time.
Wedding Photography Storyboards are an eye-catching, visual delight! Made from a fantastic collage of photos presented within an 82 cm square frame, each photo is set within its own bevel cut window and matted. In a wedding photography storyboard, there is one central photo measuring approximately 48 cm x 33 cm. There are also 24 smaller photos set around the perimeter of the frame, and these are credit card sized. Each photo is set within its own window - and each window has a white bevel core. We can make a wedding photography storyboard from client images- so if you've just discovered these wonderful pieces of art, all you need is your complete set of high resolution wedding photos on disk or memory stick, and we can do the rest.
We offer these stunning, eye-catching wedding photo storyboards in two main styles. There is one storyboard design which has an 82cm matted frame and 24 small photos set around one central enlargement. Yet another stunning design is in panorama format, ideal for placement on a wall behind a lounge suite or coffee table. Call the studio for more information.
Wedding Photography in Melbourne's CBD is not simply a case of "turn up and take the pictures" anymore. Clearly defined laws exist, which relate to parking and photography within the more popular wedding photography areas of Melbourne's City.
Are you planning a wedding in Melbourne?
If you are, there's probably a good chance that a portion of your wedding photography will take place in Melbourne's popular wedding photo hot spots (three blocks in any direction of Flinders Street Station).
If that's the case, then we urge you to read more about this on the Wedding Photography in Melbourne City Information Page.
It might be easier to plan your Melbourne wedding photography locations around the many stunning free areas, where photography is encouraged. Some of these are the Fitzroy Gardens in East Melbourne, suburban beaches around Brighton, Port Melbourne, St Kilda and South Melbourne, as well as the reserves throughout the suburbs and the Dandenong Ranges. All of these popular and photogenic wedding locations will bring your Melbourne wedding photos to life. A walk through prior to your wedding day will soon give you an idea of how accessible the locations are, and which places interest you the most. As with all things wedding related, it pays to do your homework and make a final check prior to the day just in case the "free" venue is not free anymore.

A touch of colour could be just the thing to set off black and white photography!
All our wedding photography is captured in colour, and channel mixing in post production yields better tones in the covered images. In the examples shown here, we have kept the bride's red bouquet as a constant, not changing its hue or saturation. We've modified the overall tone in everything else within the scene in the two images below, to give you an idea of some of the subtle differences that selective toning can make, to the overall mood of an image.
The above example shows sepia toning, at a very low intensity or strength; while the example below shows a blue tint of the same numerical value applied to the image.
Many people would consider either of these two images to be "black and white" but when viewed alongside a true monochromatic ( black and white ) photo, the differences are immediately apparent.
A great deal of your perception of what is written here, depends on the device you are viewing this website on. Even two monitors with the same model number from the same manufacturer, connected to identical computers, will be different. Next time you're near an internet cafe... check it out!
Check out the wedding photography shown below- from a lane way in Melbourne city- a smoke machine provided the effect, and we cooked up quite a storm! Black and white and part colouring in this instance, draws all the initial attention to the neon sign... just the effect we - and the bride and groom- wanted!
We have an incredibly high powered, solar smoke machine- a unique gadget which we use to create images like this, on location. It creates beautiful ethereal effects almost anywhere- forests, old buildings, alleyways and grunge settings- speak with us if you would like shots with smoke!
The machine runs without electricity- so that means we can concentrate on the artistic side of wedding photography without having to worry about cables and complications. Adding some sizzle to wedding photos has never been easier.
One thing to keep in mind if you are considering trucks in your wedding photos, is the amount of parking space you have in which to move. Trucks are huge and any errors in alignment amplify themselves in photography, so the parking needs to be angle-perfect for everything to work in seamless harmony.
Checkout our Potters wedding gallery for more pictures from this visually engaging wedding.
We offer special rates for wedding photography, to customers of Potters Wedding Receptions.
If you anticipate millions of wedding presents, it might be worth considering a Kenworth truck as transport from your wedding reception. Otherwise, Kenworths make awesome night wedding photography props, for people who are into trucks and the trucking life.
These huge Kenworth monsters are shown at the wedding reception venue "Potters" which is in Warrandyte
