Reviews and recommendations for Yarra Valley wedding photographer :
Simon is sheer genius! For months we googled and researched so many photographers and came across Simon. Our photos and video were our top priority. He was the only meeting we had and after seeing his shots and his relaxed and professional attitude we had no doubt we had made the right choice. After seeing our photos tonight we are nothing but ecstatic about Simon’s work. He was able to capture priceless moments and captured our wedding and all it’s emotion. Natural and real was what we wanted and that is what we got. We don’t even know where to start choosing photos for our wall as the options are endless!
Simon always put in the extra effort, even attending our rehearsal! We know we never would of got that service with another photographer. You spend the most time with your photographer on the day and it was an absolute pleasure to do so with Simon. His work with Chris Grose (our videographer) was insightful and artistic and they work seamlessly to produce an amazing product!
Simon, thank-you for your fantastic work!!!!!!!

Well and truly beyond all expectations.
Having decided to get married less than six months after becoming engaged I was amazed to find Simon and thought his offering was too good to be true.
Simon came to us to chat through our expectations and was very open, honest and interested in hearing about our plans for our day.
This friendly, candid and relaxed personality completely matched his easy going, professional style on the day.
Not only did Simon take amazing photos of us and our bridal party but also of the venue, our guests and their children. So many people have commented on how “lovely” he was and of his ability to capture the true spirit and fun of our wedding day.
By the end of the day Simon was on a first name basis with so many guests it was like he was part of our family! Simon made an effort to fit in so well (and naturally did) that he even came along to our after wedding BBQ as a guest!
I really could not recommend Simon highly enough. We could not fault his communication pre-wedding, his efforts and breadth of photos from the day or his fast turn around post wedding.
Wedding photos are always that one thing that you desperately hope will turn out well. The one piece of the wedding that you cherish and hope to one day show children, grand chlidren and so on.
We will forever be grateful to Simon for giving us and our guests some amazing images that will help bring our memories to life for a long, long time.

Our day was made easy because of how relaxed and professional Simon was. Exactly what we had hoped for. Our photos have turned out exactly as we had hoped, all the photos we wanted and all the random ones we didn’t expect also. Thank you so much Simon.

Simon was the first wedding photographer I met with, and whilst initially I had planned to meet with other wedding photographers, I changed my mind after meeting Simon. Simon had a relaxed, friendly and professional approach and I just knew he was the right wedding photographer for our wedding. Simon was very accessible in the lead up to the wedding and was always prompt in responding to any questions we had. He did a great job blending into our family and friends on the day and it was very easy to forget he was there as our photographer. We were extremely delighted with our wedding photos, as they captured our wedding day just as we remembered it. The photos are relaxed and candid and captured our guests naturally, and exceed our expectations. Our guests have also commented on the quality of our wedding photos, with one guest even requesting Simons details for his family portraits. Simon was fantastic as a wedding photographer and we could not recommend Simon more highly.

Simon was excellent. We could not have chosen a more relaxed, competent, friendly and professional photographer for our wedding last year. And his value for money is second to none!
We wanted to hire a photographer who knew his subject, the venue and would be able to develop a set of photos that reflected the fun, friendly & relaxed atmosphere that we had been determined to engender on our special day.
Our request was for him to capture ourselves and all of our guests enjoying the day, each others company and the occasion and setting in which wed taken our vows and then celebrated afterwards.
Simon and his assistant were able to do that perfectly. We could not have been more pleased with the results. And in doing so they were almost unnoticeable, blending in with the guests which resulted in a set of very natural photos, with peoples personalities and enjoyment shining through.
Simon included a portfolio of quality professional photos and an accompanying DVD of the same excellent standard.
We would highly recommend any couples to engage Simon as their wedding photographer.

We wanted professional quality photos with as many relaxed, unposed candid moments as possible for our wedding. After seeing Simon’s work and immediately after meeting him we both agreed to book him without meeting any other photographers. Simon was an absolute pleasure to deal with on the day, he kept us relaxed, handled alot of kids and inclement weather with aplomb and our photos turned out beautifully. We would both absolutely recommend him to anyone wanting to cherish the memories of their big day.

Simon is truly an outstanding photographer and I highly recommend him to others. From the initial meeting to the wedding day, Simon was always approachable, friendly, professional and willing to answer any question or help out in any way. He is an amazing photographer but is also very humble and doesn’t take himself too seriously. This was crucial in helping us feel relaxed and comfortable and ensuring that the photos were candid and natural. The photos were perfect and the dvd presentation beautiful. It was an absolute pleasure to have Simon at our wedding.
