Comfortable, affordable, creative, timeless...

Matt Elliott is a fully Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography




It’s your special day. You want to remember it forever, and you want those memories to be beautiful. But you also want to enjoy the day itself. You don’t want to spend the whole day posing and rushing around from one spot to the next.


As a professional wedding photographer, that’s how I see it too. I’m there to record the event and capture the memories, not to be a nuisance or to be the star of the show! In fact, you’ll hardly even know I’m there. You’ll have all the time and space you need to catch up with friends and family, enjoy your dinner, have a few drinks and live the moment.

In reality, that’s when the best photos happen. When it’s candid and natural, and you’re not feeling pressured to take ‘the shot of the day’. (Funnily enough, when you’re relaxed and happy, you look relaxed and happy in your photos!)


Even with a natural and photojournalism approach, I’m not completely invisible. There are obviously going to be certain shots that require a bit of creative direction in order to achieve your unique wedding photos. But I’m an easy-going guy and my clients tell me they find my involvement relaxed, unobtrusive and even a bit of fun.

I don’t just click-and-shoot, either. We inspect your chosen locations prior to the big day, and choose the unique angles and perspectives that will best suit the creative style of photography you’re after.


And I take into account all the details, like the time we’ll be shooting, the number of people involved and the Melbourne weather forecast. Then I plan exactly what equipment I’ll need at each spot, and have it all set up and ready to go, on arrival. So there’s no fussing around. That’s what being professional is all about, in my book.




Being a professional photographer, I have all conditions covered. If it rains, I have portable lighting to shoot indoors. If it's dark, the gear I have performs well in low light. No matter what this crazy Melbourne weather dishes up on your big wedding day, I'll be ready.


Whether you’re in Melbourne, on the Mornington Peninsula, the Surf Coast or somewhere else in Australia entirely, check out my wedding photography gallery or view the affordable wedding photography prices that I have to see exactly what you get and how affordable I am (even if you’re on a tight budget).

I have separated out the costs for photography and products so that if you're on a budget, you can get all of your photos on a USB and make whatever products you want yourselves.


For those that want a professional level set of products, I can take care of everything for you from hand made albums and books to wall art and thank you cards.


Check out my Pricing and Questions pages for further details on the products that I offer.

I'm a big believer in transparency which is why I go into a lot of detail about what you will get  if you choose me as your professional wedding photographer. It's a big decision and one that you want to get right.


Of course, your decision isn't  based solely on what material things you will get after your wedding. A large amount of what a professional photographer brings has nothing to do with taking photos. Being sociable, friendly, unflappable and able to quickly organise large groups of people is just a short list of skills needed to ensure your day runs smoothly.
