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.
We’re proud supporters of same-sex marriage, and since 2015 have been partners with Australia’s leading same-sex wedding directory Equally Wed.
