Useful information and answers to questions you might have

What time do you start and finish?

For full day packages, I cover both bride and groom preparations (usually about an hour for the guys and hour-and-a-half for the girls, but there’s no set times), throughout the ceremony and portraits afterwards, and through until 11pm (or whenever your reception finishes, if it’s a lunchtime wedding). That means your entire day is covered, including all your formalities through the reception, as well as your bouquet and garter, and farewells.

For a Ceremony+Portraits package, I allow for around 2.5 to 3 hours of coverage, starting from the ceremony start time. That usually gives us enough time to cover the bride’s arrival, ceremony itself, group shot and family portraits afterwards, and then around 1.5 hours to cover bridal party all together and of course, the bride and groom.

And if you have requirements that don’t fit either of those scenarios, that’s fine – I’ll customise something for you. Contact me either on 0487 912 198 or by email at [email protected] or by using the handy form below, and let me know what you’d like, and we’ll go from there.

What do we get on the USB?

Your complete set of finished wedding images in high resolution, and a set in screen resolution as well (to make it easy to email them and put them on facebook, etc.). We don’t include every single shot – you don’t need the ones where someone blinked or looked away. There’s no minimum number and no maximum – the way we think about it is “if these were my wedding photos, would I want that shot?” . If in doubt, we leave it in the finished set.

Are the images retouched?

The finished set are colour corrected, cropped and made print-ready. They’re processed in a natural and classic style, and where we think images are suited to black-and-white treatment we’ll include a black-and-white version as well. And you get to review them all in your password-protected gallery before we create the final set of high-resolution versions, so if there are any any changes you’d like, just let us know.

Are the images watermarked?

No, not watermarked in any way. They’re print ready, and you’re free to have prints made wherever you like.

If you’d prefer to email me directly, send your note to  [email protected], or give me a call on 0487 912 198 and let us know what you’d like – we’d love to hear from you!

About Us

Yarra Valley Wedding Photographer

Hi, my name is Jon, and I’m a wedding photographer based in Melbourne, but travelling anywhere for wedding and engagement shoots. We’re located in Melbourne’s beautiful Yarra Valley. Thanks for taking the time to check out our site.

Having studied photography at Deakin University back in the film era, we established Millgrove Photography in 2011, and since then I’ve captured nearly 300 weddings.

Over the last few years, I have been admitted as an Accredited Professional Photographer by the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, and in 2016 applied for and was made an Appointed Associate of the Australian Bridal Industry Academy. A huge thanks also goes to all the couples who helped make me a Finalist in the 2017 ABIA Victorian Photographer of the Year Awards – http://abia.com.au/awards/eventaward/19th-VIC-ABIA-Awards

My focus is on allowing your individual personalities, as well as your connection as a couple, to shine through in your images. I have a professional and unobtrusive approach, and by combining that with a natural, candid and relaxed feel, we allow your individual personalities and spirit to come through in the unique images we create for you.

I’m also very aware that your day is about you two – not the wedding photographer! So I make sure I’m there to create images that you love, without making you feel awkward or too posed.

I love the unique and special moments of wedding days, and I’m committed to providing you with beautiful images that capture your big day as it happens, providing you with memories that will last forever.

One of the biggest compliments I often get is “we didn’t even notice you being there” – and I love that. My job is to capture all the elements of your big day – the details, the emotion, and the events – and being ready to catch everything that happens, while staying in the background. I’m there to play a small part in helping you to have a brilliant day, and a large part in making sure you get exactly what you want from your wedding photos.

Yarra Valley-based, photographing weddings everywhere

I’ve worked on hundreds of weddings at venues all across the state, including beach weddings , gardens, large churches and small chapels, backyards and bistros, wineries (I’m a Yarra Valley wedding photographer after all) – you name it, and I’ve probably shot a wedding there!

All packages include your wedding images on USB in high resolution, delivered in a custom-made personalised presentation box, and a password protected web gallery to review your images and share them with friends and family.

I’m a Wedding Photographer in Melbourne, Yarra Valley and beyond… but we happily travel throughout Victoria and beyond as necessary for wedding photography.

Wedding Photography Packages are available to cover your preparations, ceremony, portrait session, and reception, as well as prints and albums.

Kind Words

I bring a relaxed and professional approach, and my goal is to make beautiful photographic memories of all the little (and big!) moments that make up your unique day.

Don’t take my word for it though – here’s what our clients say, and why we’re a 5-star Top Rated Supplier on Easy Weddings …

“From the first meeting we had with Jon we knew he would be the perfect photographer for us. He was so easy to speak to and understood exactly what we wanted. On the day of the wedding he made the whole process so much easier, he worked perfectly with everyone including the kids. Everything was easily done with no pressure and was actually lots of fun full of laughs. The whole photography experience was perfect. The only thing better was the finished product, the photos were more than we could have ever imagined and I love each and every one of them. Jon made our day so pleasant and gave us the most magical photos that we can treasure forever and we will be forever grateful.” – Crystle N

“Jon is an amazing photographer who has captured our special day perfectly. He listened to what we wanted, captured and created images that will remind us of how great our day was forever. I would recommend Millgrove Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, if your wedding is big or like ours small Jon will be able to record everything you want and so much more.” – Keera T

“Jon was extremely professional and made us feel relaxed and comfortable during the day. After the portraits, you didn’t even notice him there! He wasn’t intrusive, or in anyone’s way – and we got so many brilliant photos for such an affordable price. Very happy! Would recommend Jon to anyone! ” – Casey D

“Jon was absolutely fantastic. He was professional and accommodating to all of my requests. He spent all day with us from getting ready with my husband, getting pics of me getting ready, the ceremony, reception and shots of us leaving. He was with us for over 12 hours and never complained or asked for anything. The photos look amazing and are exactly what I wanted. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. ” – Eileen T

“Jon did such a great job. He was so professional and easy-going. We met with him days before the wedding and made a plan, which was great because the actual day was such a whirlwind. We got so many beautiful shots throughout the day and night. ” – Brooke C
