The Wedding Experience - The Heart of our Work

You are having trouble figuring out how to choose a wedding photographer? Their work should resonate with you, how you feel and how you want your memories of your wedding day to look. 

If you want sleek pictures that make you look like models in Vogue- we're probably not the photographers for you.

If you're after warm, rich, organic images, enjoy some fun, aren't scared of a little PDA and want pictures of candid moments, even when the party gets a little messy- then you're in the right place!

We believe that wedding photos shouldn't be on-trend poses that you could see from anyone's wedding. We believe that the best part of your wedding day is the feelings that go with it- love, excitement, tears and the anticipation of a new life (and of course the epic partying!), and that is what we aim to capture in your wedding images.

Our job isn't just to take snaps of your day; anyone with a camera can do that. Our job is to capture the emotions you feel so that when you look at your photos, you don't just remember how the day looked, but how it felt to be there at that moment.

Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula

So you're getting hitched? Congratulations! And now you're looking for a wedding photographer. Your vision of a wedding is to spend as much time as possible with family and friends, to avoid having to sit for photos for hours on end, and to have one enormous party. All while wearing a huge broad smile on your face. Are we correct?

We understand that a wedding isn't a fashion shoot for a wedding magazine, so we don't approach it that way. We'll just take our time getting some amazing shots with your family, wedding party, and, of course, the two of you. But we assure it won't last for hours.

Who Are We?

The crew at Love is Sweet Weddings has years of experience and is completely consumed by weddings.
Our team of creative professionals don't do this as a hobby, and we do this for real. Many of our clients tell us how calm yet attentive we are, making a really big difference to their day.

When it comes to working with wonderful light, capturing your wedding for authenticity (i.e. no crazy stuff), and, of course, offering exceptional service, everyone at Love is Sweet has the same vision. So, no matter who is behind the lens, your experience will be unforgettable.

Matt Elliott - Australian Professional Wedding Photographer, based on the Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne

90% of the day is spent going on candid photos to capture the day's truly feel. Instead of using the dreaded 'posing' word, I call it 'creative direction', which is just getting you into a position that feels comfortable to look your best and feel confident having your wedding photos taken. 

In the interest of honesty, I believe it is fair to allow you to view some full wedding galleries showing full days. Looking through a photographer's portfolio only reveals their favourites or the photos they've nailed.
I'm confident enough in my work to show you full wedding galleries and give you a taste of what to expect with your wedding. I plan to add more, but as you can imagine, these galleries have many photos, and once you add in the black and white copies, the size of the gallery gets quite big.

"The most important things in life are those that cannot be purchased." Time, memories, kindness, family and friends."

Welcome! We have crossed paths, and I am grateful for that. Although the process of organising a wedding might be intimidating, it is my job as your wedding photographer to support and advise you at every turn.

Engagement Session

This is an excellent opportunity to meet your photographer, and the session will be much more informal than your wedding day. If you feel that we are a suitable fit for your wedding day, the engagement shoot session price will be subtracted from your wedding package.

Wedding Photography

I am a professional wedding photographer, always looking for a different perspective to tell your story.

Family Photography

So you got married, we can still be friends after your big day and get to catch up through your family's changes. I love lifestyle family photography, and you can find more about my family photography work here.

It all leads to this moment when you feel that you are ready to take on this next big step and commit to your relationship. Are you ready to pop the question? Well, I can help you to plan the session and record this memorable moment.

Mornington Peninsula Wedding Photographers & Films

We are a dynamic husband and wife team from the Mornington Peninsula that specialise in wedding photography and cinematography. With the help of our still and animated images, we hope to convey your story. We hope that this keepsake from your special day will be passed down for many years.

We view capturing a wedding as an honour. We care about what makes you special as a couple and what you want to be captured on the day.

We started off in film, television, and advertising. We are happy to have captured volcanoes erupting in Italy, stingrays in the Caymen Islands, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and working with brands and musicians such as U2.

Having captured weddings all around the world, including Machu Pichu, Dunns River in Jamaica, Cozumel Mexico, New Orleans, Miami, Grand Caymen and even weddings on board large cruise ships, we discovered that the most gratifying part of the work was the joy we created for a couple from our images and films. Not a lot beats the feeling of seeing your work pop up on social media year after year from a client.

What We Offer

VIDEOGRAPHY - When filming our couples, we take a candid, fly on the wall approach. We primarily shoot in 4K, therefore the image quality is really great.

PHOTOGRAPHY - Depending on your needs, we use a combination of candid and staged photography. We offer numerous methods for grading your photographs - choose between lively with lots of colour, light and airy with a tiny fade, a deeper vibe, and black and white - or let us choose for you.

LIVE STREAMING SERVICES - since the arrival of the dreaded Covid pandemic (tired face!!), many of our couples have opted for smaller, more intimate weddings with limited guests. With international travel restrictions, many loved ones are not able to attend. This caused us to come up with a live streaming solution for our couples and introduce a heap of new equipment to allow those loved ones who cannot attend to participate online and stream via a private youtube link. This has been a proven success, and now we pride ourselves on offering live streaming as one of our core services.

AERIAL DRONE CINEMATOGRAPHY - we love to squeeze in some drone footage on your special day - location and weather permitting

GOOD SOUND QUALITY - we make sure that we capture the best possible sound on the day. We do this with a lapel mic we place on the groom, and recording devices run out of the celebrants mic. We also record direct from any venue's PA system, as well as the band or DJ system, to acquire the best audio possible, which we later sync with the editing footage.

MUSIC - we have access to various licensed music websites, which we get our couples to pick from before we start editing the footage

HANDCRAFTED USB GIFT BOX- Once we have completed editing and obtained your approval on our work, we transfer all of the files to a beautifully carved wooden USB and gift box, which we despatch to you.

Serious about photos, not so serious, guy.

I am privileged to be able to live a life dedicated to capturing moments and memories.

I strive to shoot my ocean work in such a way that you can hear the silence as a wave crests towards its inevitable finale, feel the blast of a barrel's spit stinging your cheeks and ears, and see the magic that can only come from the combination of light and water. As a surfer, seeing, hearing, and feeling these moments is what drew me to a profession as a photographer.

Little did I know that the photography of people would quickly rival my passion for ocean photography. Specifically, the union of two people. Being a part of one of the most private days of a couple's lives and being responsible for documenting that day in a way that genuinely represents them has fueled my enthusiasm for wedding photography.
As every couple is unique, I take a unique approach to capturing your special day; some people are comfortable in front of a camera, many are not (me included). The most memorable and natural moments, free of staged and starched moments, can only be captured with a laid-back, enjoyable, and unobtrusive technique that is fluid to the tides of the day. This approach will result in an album that truly captures you and your loved ones.

This all might sound a little serious, and whilst I take it seriously, the most important thing is to have fun with it!

Journey By Light Photography, established in 2013, has continued to refine what it is that makes them unique.Aside from the obvious romance with every ounce of this relatively new art form provides, it is most likely known that they have flown the virtual pigeonhole and offer not only a wedding photographer, but also a family and lifestyle photographer, a passionate landscape photographer, aerial, commercial, portrait, and so on.

Thank you so much for visiting my website; I'm honoured to be considered a part of your day. Wedding photography has been my full-time job for nearly 5 years, and it still amazes me that I've been able to make a living doing something I truly like. I attend every wedding I photograph in order to immerse myself in the event and become a part of it.

Of course, you'll want some killer couple portraits in the mix as well. But I don't think we need to leave your party for hours to receive something beautiful and genuine like this. My top priority is that when you look at your wedding images, you remember precisely how you felt on the day.

And after the day is all done and dusted, it's always rad to have something that you can hang on your wall forever. Or print in a beautiful album. I do also take 'those' family photos. I know your mum is going to want them, even if you don't.

Free The Bird Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula

Free The Bird Wedding Photography Michael Briggs Wedding Photography Selena McLaren Wedding Photography Journey By Light Photography Mornington Peninsula


For the most part, my upbringing entailed a nomadic existence with my family. This consisted of makeshift homes made from the back of cars, tents, buses and anything in between. Although this upbringing wasn't ideal in many ways, this non-material existence and tight perimeters with my family taught me what I consider to be most important in life. The love I share with my family, friends, and wife makes this life beautiful and is what I treasure most in the world.

This belief may be part of the reason I have such a passion for photographing weddings. This day is such an important part of peoples life. It is a rare opportunity to communally celebrate love, together with your partner and all the special people you have invited to be part of this day.

Free the Bird is a business purely driven by passion. Before starting to Free the Bird, I had a great paying job, a beautiful house and a nice car. It was all I could have dreamt of, but there was one thing missing, and that was passion. It's hard to live happily without this vital ingredient, so (with the push of my wife) I put everything on the line, and I started following my dreams. This was the beginning of Free the Bird.

Three years later, I am still here, as passionate about photography as the day I started. I still get nervous with excitement before every wedding day, and I still excitedly show Leelou all my favourite photos the next day. This is how I know I am still on the right path in life. The day the excitement goes away, and I stop pushing my photos to be better then the last, it is the day I put down my camera. Every couple deserves to have a photographer at their wedding that strives to do their very best every time they pick up their camera.

Free the Bird's core values are simple. We create an experience to feel comfortable, safe, and well looked after from day one. We understand that a wedding day can be a big venture for most people, eliminating any stress and keeping everything we do very transparently. Our clients' commitment is to deliver work at the highest quality that will last to be enjoyed by future generations.

We enjoy weddings.

That's right. That also means we sincerely love what we do. We get the opportunity to see both bride and groom (bride and bride, or groom and groom) transform from an everyday couple into angelic/handsome/really-really-good-looking super beings in the span of one morning. Witness an often teary declaration of love and hang out with some pretty loved-up babes (refer to the previous sentence) in the afternoon. And spend the evening in celebration dancing the night away.

Depending on where you are getting married, we will generally start a week early. One of our favourite parts of a wedding is the location shoot. So we visit the ceremony and reception areas in advance to source out the best backdrops, light and creative influence we can find for your location shoot.

Your Wedding Day

We begin our day taking preparation photos of both bride and groom (both Steve + Keshia will be there – no, your eyes are not playing black magic trickery on you, you get TWO photographers for the ENTIRE day). We will flit between the two locations of preparation, getting all the photos possible. Our last visit is generally to the bride before we boot-leg it to the ceremony area.

Heart-warming wedding photographs

As opposed to that tacky traditional photographer you saw at your friend's wedding, we like to think of ourselves as the complete opposite. the long list of uncomfortable stances, the forced smiles, and the "staged" moments. Ughh!

We photograph people rather than poses. We immerse ourselves into your wedding, mingling with your guests, capturing the real atmosphere and emotion felt on the day.

The laughter, the belly laughs, the connection between two distinct beings, your father's pride, the unexpected blunders, the sensations of overwhelming joy, grandma's sweet reaction, and all the happy tears. From tying up your dress with your sister to slamming shots with your university mates and tearing up the d-floor at night. We're eager to hear your tale.

How to Avoid Disaster When Hiring a Wedding Photographer

Contracts and Contingency

If the photographer doesn't have a contract, walk away immediately. No wedding photographer worth their salt would not have a contract for you to sign when you want to book them. It's also worth asking about contingency plans if the worst were to happen. Most of this should be in the contract, but if, for example, they have a photographer who acts as a backup if they're indisposed on the day, it's good to know. Reliability is everything with wedding photographers, and anyone who seems flighty or disorganised ought to be avoided.


Testimonials are so easily faked that they border on pointless. I would almost always disregard them unless they tick several boxes. You want to make sure it's attached to a real wedding (and ideally see the images from that wedding). You want to check if they're a family member or friend of the photographer. You want to check the volume of testimonials; if there are many reviews on their Facebook page or Google, that's often a reasonably good sign. Generally, however, don't be drawn in by a few flattering sentences here and there.

Misleading Portfolios

Portfolios are a complicated area. Everyone has an opinion on how they should look and function and what ought to be displayed. However, the information contained in a portfolio is often far more than just words and pictures. When you look at a photographer's website to book them for your wedding, you're primarily trying to gauge if you like their work and if their style suits your aspirations for your big day's images. But that alone is not enough in avoiding a lousy photographer. The scale of deception ranges from honestly misleading through to outright fraud. Be aware, and both can result in far from ideal photographs. The former might be a few cherry-picked "good" images that are extremely rare for the photographer. The latter might be stolen ideas from another photographer.

So what should you do? Firstly, you want to see full wedding albums they have already completed. A portfolio is a selection of their best shots, but you need to see the complete range. You need to see their average standard of image and whether you'd be happy with it and judge them based on that. This also should bypass any chance of stolen work. I would request to see more than one and make sure they're reasonably recent.

Social Media

I'm not a social media lover these days, and I can fully understand people who avoid it, but it can be a useful litmus test for photographers. Check to see if they have a Facebook page, Instagram, Flickr, and so on and if they tend to it regularly. The follower count isn't really relevant; it's more verification of who they are, what they do, and that what they say they have done in the past is correct. Most full-time wedding photographers post sneak previews to the elation of wedding guests, so you get both evidence for their standard of work and some proof that they are serving real clients.


If someone you know had beautiful wedding images taken, ask them for the photographer's details and whether they would recommend them. Being able to talk to a past client of a photographer, you're looking to hire powerful and give you insight into how they are on the day; if that past client is someone you know and trust, all the better. If this is possible, it still shouldn't be in lieu of the other checks but rather a more important starting point.


I hesitate to say, "you get what you pay for", as it's not a universal truth, but it's not far off. Time and time again, you see social media outrage from brides who "paid $600" for a photographer who turned out to be unreliable or of little talent. Well, yes, that's predictable. You might get lucky with a photographer just starting who doesn't know what to charge but is otherwise very good at what they do, but that's highly unlikely. The average price is around $2,000, so if you're quoted far south (or far north) of that, consider it a red flag.
