Tamborine Mountain Wedding Photography – Jeff and Wendy – a few frames


Tamborine mountain is one beautiful part of the world. This is where Wendy married her sweetheart, Jeff.

Albert River Winery was the spot they chose, and what a spot!

Wendy, your very detailed lace Luv Bridal gown was just stunning.  Jeff, your blue suit and awesome red bow-tie matched perfectly. Great taste you guys have, and also with finding each other.

Congratulations to you. I know you will be an unstoppable team together in life, on your journey forward.


Many thanks for having Pete and I along on your beautiful day.

Here are a few faves I have chosen for you for now, just as a sneak peek.

Brisbane Wedding Photographer – Best of 2018


Hello, Matt here.


2018 sure was one crazy year!

Déus Photography is now a thing of the past and Light Pictures was born. It wasn’t our choice to do it, but so be it, I like our new handle!

I will be honest though, it greatly impacted us a lot. After the previous year of being booked to capacity for the first time!, everything got flipped on it’s head. We had to remove all reference of “Deus” from our work, all the way back to the start. Because of this, many awesome clients who were spreading the word for us, and ones who eventually tracked us down, said “Where did you go? We have been sending out our praise to everyone but they couldn’t find you! You just vanished!”


That’s a hard thing to hear as a small business owner, with all the years of hard work we put into building up a reputation, “wow”ing our clients, only for most of it to vanish before our eyes. So, 2018 has actually really been a struggle – we have just kept things alive, a very soul challenging time.  I can also tell you that managing a business by yourself, whilst looking after 2 young kids part of every week, sure keeps your hands full!

But I wouldn’t give that up for the world. I love my two tykes Louis and Layla so much, every moment I get to spend with them is a blessing. It’s just so amazing being able to do what I do to be able to be a work at home dad. It means being able to spend so much time with them in these precious years, it’s perfect!

But with all these things considered, I have decided to drop my hours down to just part time. This is just for a while to see how things go. I think it will be a positive thing all round. Quality not Quantity, I say!


There was another side to 2018 too, a hugely positive side.

Firstly I must start with gratitude. Gratitude I have for the privilege of being given all the love and trust from so many amazing couples.

Once again I was able to travel. I saw so many new and beautiful parts of our country, for that I am so thankful. Just to mention though, one recent month I clocked over 4000 km’s in my car!

I have been a big part of some extremely amazing days and seen so much Love…and I still to this day have not had a “Bridezilla”!


Looking back through all these photos, I am proud of what I have to show off to you. My work sure has come a long way since my first wedding around 9 years ago. And with everything that has been going on, I’m proud of what I have accomplished. And all from what really wasn’t a heap of weddings.

I am just soooo happy that I have recorded so many memories, for all my love birds out there in marriage bliss to keep.

I am very thankful that I have been able to a part of them all.


A big “Thanks!” to everyone in my life for all your support. A huge thanks to my sister Hannah, who had a baby only a few months ago. Han, you are amazing. I’m also very much looking forward to shooting with you again when you can, soon I hope!

Thank you to my brother Damien, for moving in with me all the way from Sydney, having you here as a friend and with all your support, has meant the world to me.

Thanks to my mate Pete Oakman, my 2nd shooter, road trip partner and general partner in crime, your talent, support and help has been priceless…a fair few of the pics belong to you bud!

And I couldn’t forget my wonderful mother! Love you Mum, muchly.

I also want to thank the World, for Symmetry, light, “WOW”‘s, colour, kisses, flowers, Fuji, talent, Love!


2018 has actually been a fun ride. It’s always challenging being a Brisbane Wedding Photographer, but I love a challenge…riding the Roller-coaster of life!


And I would like to leave you with, “Trust me, I remind myself every day of how lucky I am, to be able to do what I do, and that I have been blessed with such an awesome family.”

I am eagerly looking forward to 2019, with my chin up and hope in my heart.


Everyone please spread the word! “We have not gone anywhere, we are still doing what we do and we want to be a part of more wonderful journeys for many years to come!”


Below are a bunch of snapshots in time, all from REAL weddings. They all tell a story and bring back amazing memories, and I think they all belong on a wall…..somewhere. Pictures with Light!



There are some beautiful locations up above that’s for sure. But if you are planning a wedding, or know someone who is, have a look at a great feature we have done on some Venues up in our area of the world, Byron Bay. It’s well worth a look, and just over HERE.

Blue Mountains Wedding – Dave and Ash – Megalong Valley


It was lovely to get back to the area I was born and grew up in, the stunning Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

Ashley married David at the beautiful Dryridge Estate Winery out in the Megalong Valley, with The Great Dividing Range surrounding them.

The weather was chaotic yet addictive, windy and calm, rainy with stars to finish.

Ash is wearing an elegant beaded gown by one of my favourite designers Karen Willis Holmes, Ash what a stunner you are!!

Dave is in a very cool, blue M.J. Bale Suit, and he and the boys have custom Peggy and Finn Ties and pockets with Australian native prints, matching the handmade bouquets with all of the Aussie fauna included.

Dave’s wedding band is extremely custom made by Zoe Pook, featuring a surround of meteorite and Ash’s fingerprint hand engraved into the middle…what a ring!

Ash and Dave, thanks for having me along on your wonderful day, for the trust and inspiration, for having such welcoming and hospitable families and friends. I will never forget your day.

 

I hope you like these few teasers for now. More to come soon.

Country Style Wedding – Narbeh and Talin – Somersby NSW


Talin and Narbs are no longer two people, they are ONE!

They married each other on a stunning property, The Somersby Stables, in Somersby NSW, what a place!!

The huge barn was seriously decked out with flowers galore, by the very talented Piccolo Petalo, there will be more to come of that later.

Talin and Narbeh joined with vows that were both humorous but also brought us all to tears. Kind words said by a dear friend of theirs who married them all but a few legal must gets.

I love these two, so kind and thoughtful, always worrying about everyone else instead of kicking back and enjoying their huge epic ride that was their wedding day. But lucky Pete and I were there to snap a few pics of the day in case they missed anything.

Talin is wearing a very elegant Alyssa Kristin gown from Love Marie Bridal Boutique and Narbs looked very dashing in his perfectly fitting blue suit by Brent Wilson – what a perfect match!

So much class!

So much love too, and romance, and the weather was superb. Thanks Sydney for putting it on for all of us on their special day!

Everyone partied the night on in the barn, lots of Armenian charm on the dance-floor, and the food by Sprout was soooo darn good!

Thanks Talin and Narbs, for having Pete and I along, and for being so hospitable, it was a lot of fun!

A few pics here of the day, an attempt to show off the intensity and love of your day, more to come soon.


Somersby is one beautiful location that’s for sure, but there is also a great feature we have done on another epic part of NSW just over HERE. Please, do have a look.

  • Talin Abovian - So, so, SO incredibly chuffed and honoured to have had the pleasure of meeting, working with and being shot by Matt and Pete. Holy moly – what truly amazing photographers, and they took all the time to not only snap the day but also to scout out the perfect locations on the property, getting just the right shot at just the right moment. I mean, the one on the lake – breathtaking.

    You both fit right in to our families too 🙂 loved by one and all!

Your professionalism, friendliness and just general awesomeness on the day won’t ever be forgotten by myself and my team, it’s always a blessing to work with such lovely wedding peeps.Okay so now I have to go and wipe whatever is leaking from my eyes after looking at these photos, I’M NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING!! haha <3 <3 <3ReplyCancel

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Mark and Stephie – a few frames..

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Toowoomba Wedding – Mark and Stephie


What a way to finish the year, with a New Years Eve wedding!

Stephie and Mark married each other out in the stunning Gabbinbar Estate in rural Brisbane, Toowoomba.

Such romance and excitement. Stephie was doing nervous squats most of the time right up until she climbed into that stunning dress.

There were clouds, sunshine, then rain, the perfect amount of romance the gods could cram into one day.

Proud father in arm lock, Steph walked down the aisle with the hugest grin on her face. Mark was awe-struck….and fair enough, Stephie was glowing with excitement and looked just stunning!

They said their emotional with a touch of giggles vows, kissed, were showered with rose petals as they walked back down the aisle, then rode off on a horse drawn carriage to take in the beauty of the estate and have some time for them, as a couple that just became one.

When they returned they drink champagne, play croquet, then partied the night away in style with amazing food, wine and live music.

There were fireworks at midnight welcoming in 2018, and them into their new life together as husband and wife. Stephs dad, with tear in eye, hugged his daughter so tightly…under a sky full of light.

The day and night was one I will never forget.

Thanks for having me and my insatiable 2nd shooter Pete along on your New Years Eve rollercoaster ride in the beautiful Toowoomba, what a pleasure and an honour!

Here are a handful of my picks of the day.

Many more to come soon.
