Hi everyone, we are Chris and Neil, from Epic Photography (Wedding Photography Melbourne), and we are dedicated to capturing and creating the most amazing wedding photography of your big day while also making sure that you and your bridal party have as much fun as possible along the way! 🙂 

We absolutely LOVE photographing weddings and it definitely shows in our images as well as in the way we interact with our couples on the big day! We have a very unobtrusive way of doing things and basically just really enjoy having fun and laughing with our couples all day long!

Your wedding is going to be one of the most amazing days of your life (well, my wedding was for me!!) so our plan is simple – photograph your beautiful day in a fun and relaxed way, creating images that will absolutely exceed all your expectations while giving you the most enjoyable experience possible!

Lastly, we don’t charge for travel and we are more than happy to photograph weddings all around Victoria. Every weekend you’ll find us shooting weddings in either Morning Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Dandenong Ranges, Geelong, down the Great Ocean Road and Daylesford.

“OMG OMG OMG !! These are absolutely beautiful!! I haven’t stopped looking at the photos & showing EVERYONE at work all morning!! The slide show is amazing, thank you so much for doing that for us – so so lovely! Arghh I’m seriously so excited, these are honestly just stunning! Thank you so so much for everything, I couldn’t be more happy with how it went on the day & how the photos have turned out! Can you please let me know if there is anywhere you’d like me to leave a review etc?”

“I just want to say everyone at our wedding loved you – including us! The feedback from our wedding guests has been fantastic and everyone was like “WHO IS THAT PHOTOGRAPHER he is AWESOME!” hahahaha! Your fun loving energy rubs off on others. You have a way of just putting a smile on everyone’s face. I don’t know what I would have done without you on the day, you honestly made me get through it all and I can’t thank you enough for everything you did. You honestly did go above and beyond what I expected. Thank you!”

“We can’t remember how or where we found you – but thank God we did. You are very professional yet down to earth, fun and most of all made us relaxed on our Wedding Day. We had a lot of fun with you guys around. Chris… thank you for our stunning wedding photos, everyone we have shown have been blown away with how amazing they look. Mark… thankyou for our highlight video clip, it is incredibly well edited and we can’t wait for the full version. Thanks again so much, we will be highly recommending you to anyone and everyone!!”

“Neil, we just can not thank you enough for our photos. They are just so stunning. We had our wedding at a venue that other photographers said was ‘hard work’ as far as lighting went but wow, you used all the lighting to your advantage.
We will look back at our wedding album for the rest of our lives and have our hearts filled with the warmest love & brightest memories. Thank you for being part of our day, we laughed together the whole time. Epic Photography you are truly fabulous!”

“You are a wonderful creative genius Neil and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience with you. You have a amiable personality and you just made our little group feel so welcome and comfortable. Nathan and I also felt really safe with you, knowing you would take care of everything. We really appreciate you also going to the venue and scoping it out; we could tell you really had a keen eye and knew what kind of shot would look good. We really appreciate you and your hard work. From the bottom of our hearts – THANK YOU!”

“A MASSIVE thank you Neil for everything you did to make our wedding day so wonderful! From your communication and diligence leading up to the wedding, to your humour and patience on our special day. We had so many comments from family and friends saying what a nice guy you were, and that was before they even saw the photos, which are stunning! Even your guidance for Paul and I on the day was a relief at times when we felt a little lost; you were more like a wedding planner/coordinator/amazing photographer and we can’t thank you enough.”

Paige and Yusuf Wedding Photography Melbourne Testimonial

“I just want to say how happy Yusuf and I were with your photography on Sunday. Everyone mentioned how professional you were, and you made us feel so comfortable, we raved about how great you were – by far the best thing about the day.
We couldn’t have been happier!! Thank you so much! If you ever need anyone to say something nice about Epic Photography and your work, myself and Yusuf will both give you the best reference!”

“Hi Chris! I cannot tell you how many times I have watched the slideshow!! Thank you so much for contributing to making our day run so smoothly! It truly was ‘the best day ever!’

There are so many favourites Chris! Far too difficult for us to decide on photos you took for our album! They are all so incredibly AWESOME! Thank you so much”

Erin and Rob Melbourne Wedding Photographer Testimonial at Montsalvat

“I just wanted to say THANKS again for the photos. We got raving reviews when we showed them to our family and friends!! Everyone who has seen them was very impressed with the photography and have asked for your details.

My sister and sister in-law especially were really really impressed with the style and quality. To quote my sis “these are the types of photos that win awards!”

“Hi Chris, We had an absolute ball working with you, we booked you because of your personality and so glad we did because you really helped us relax and brought that extra level of fun to what was just a perfect day. The whole way through, you were genuinely interested in helping us capture our special day, we never felt like just another client (even though you must be super busy) Can’t wait until we have another excuse for some professional photos as we will definitely be giving you a call.  Thank you sooo much once again, and all the best.”

How it all started!

It all started for me in 2005. I had a degree in Multimedia Design and just came back from travelling around the world snow boarding until disaster struck, I broke my neck on the slopes (fractured C2) and had to spend the next 6 months in a neck brace following a major surgery. Although this accident seems terrible to some people, I was young and didn’t really comprehend the seriousness of the injury, so just continued life as if it was a small inconvenience.

The great news was, my flat mate at the time was creating wedding album designs for a photography studio in Port Melbourne and they were running behind in their post production department. So, with my multimedia design skills, I thought this would be an awesome opportunity to get my first job, begged the boss to give me a chance and luckily got my foot in the door in an industry I knew nothing about!

So, with my trendy neck brace on, I spent the next 6 months working at the studio retouching wedding albums. I quickly started to appreciate the amazing photography and for the first time thought, I want to be a photographer! Again, I was on a mission, I begged my boss to give me a chance and teach me his skills. And again, luckily he took me under his wing and taught me everything he knew over the course of the next year. My neck brace came off, and I started shooting weddings at the age of 22.

I will never forget my first wedding, big Greek wedding, 16 people in the bridal party, 8am start, full reception coverage PLUS 1.5 hours of night shots in the city and their hotel room afterwards!! Definitely jumped straight into the deep end, and survived!

Anyways, long story short, I moved on from that company and worked with a commercial/fashion photographer for a year, learning the ins and out of his business, followed by another year at a SUPER busy funky family portrait studio in Richmond, again absorbing as much information as possible. I then knew I was ready to start my own business.

I combined all the styles of photography that I had learnt over the 3 years, edgy fashion photography, high energy fun, silly, funky family portrait photography created my own style. I became a Melbourne Wedding Photographer and Epic Photography was born.

I have now been a Wedding Photographer in Melbourne for almost 10 years and have photographed close to 800 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. When it comes to portraits and posing, in a nutshell, I HATE POSING!

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!
