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!

  • Lachlan - What a stunning testament to a special day! These are eminently beautiful photographs. Wonderful stuff!

  • Crissha - Piccolo Petalo Florals - Two words: BLOWN AWAY! I’ve been busting to see your captures from this day Matt and you have not disappointed. It was SO nice meeting you and I’m honoured to have my work captured in yours for this (most favourite ever) couple. 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 – Best of 2016

2016 was a year full of colour and culture. We also saw some of the most beautiful parts of the world, this makes us thankful every day that we are so privileged to be able to do what we do.

It was also the start of Light Pictures taking it’s next step towards being a family business with my sister Hannah joining me as my main partner in crime. Big thanks to Hannah for so much support in all the good times and also in the tough times.

Most of our work is now in Byron Bay which is where we aim to be centralised in the coming years. Byron is where our hearts are and where all the inspiration comes from, it really is the best part of Australia in our humble opinions.

Also a big thanks to my fave 2nd shooter Rachael Muller, couldn’t have gotten through it without her!

Thanks to my two little tykes Louis and Layla, for giving me huge purpose in this world, and to Jane for being a great mum.

Below are my favourite pics of what was a big year, in many ways.

We hope you enjoy the flashback as much as we did making these moments in time.

Very much looking forward to being a part of our couples’ big days in the coming 2017… and beyond!
