Chris with his baby daughter Lily!
I have been a part of Wedding Photography Melbourne for almost 10 years and have photographed close to 600 weddings (at the time of writing this), and I feel so lucky that I have found this profession as it still gets me jumping out of bed everyday ready for new challenges, amazing locations, loving couples, excited friends & family and seeing the uniqueness of all the different weddings I shoot, it really is the best job (if you could even call it that) in the world!
Over the years I have learnt a lot about being a Melbourne Wedding Photographer and have experienced almost every single scenario imaginable! From sun, rain and hail to fainting grooms, breaking down bridal cars and flooding reception venues! I’ve ‘almost’ seen it all, and the best part is, I know how to deal with any circumstance and more importantly help the couple turn a potential negative into an absolute positive, awesome, fun opportunity to take advantage of!
When it comes to portraits and posing, in a nutshell, I HATE POSING! When it comes to Wedding Photography Melbourne I couldn’t think of anything more awkward or uncomfortable. BUT, I do find that giving some guidance or direction can go a long way.
Imagine being in an amazingly beautiful location, and you’re ready for photos, but how are you going to know what to do or what the photographers vision is? I won’t tell you to look at a specific spot, adjust your body into a certain awkward position, move your little finger one millimeter to the left and then smile for a prolonged period of time!! HA! I feel uncomfortable even typing it! BUT I will tell you to hug each other, pinch her bottom 🙂 do a nosey nosey and other cute fun things! I will probably also get you to run, spin, jump, laugh, be yourselves and just have FUN!
I regularly shoot weddings in the city, but also love getting out of town too. I am constantly photographing weddings in the Dandenong Ranges (Mount Dandenong), Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Daylesford, Geelong, Ballarat, the Surf Coast and Gippsland as well. I also shoot destination weddings in tropical Port Douglas, Hayman Island, Bali in Indonesia and even in America!
I would love to have a chat with you about your amazing day, so after checking out and exploring my website, if you like what you see, feel free to get in touch so I can send you my Melbourne Wedding Photographer Information Pack. My wedding photographer studio is located in South Yarra (Melbourne), so if you would like to pop in for a chat, just let me know and we can catch up after work one night and I can go through everything with you.
