My name is James Harvie. I’m a great Dad, a one-in-a-million husband, a confessed exercise fanatic and a lover of nature, beauty, and good coffee.
And I am an AIPP accredited, multi-award-winning wedding photographer.

Creative Wedding Film – Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula
0404 769 677
What We Offer
- VIDEOGRAPHY – we use a candid, fly on the wall approach when we film our couples. We film mainly in 4K, so you get a very high calibre of the image.
- PHOTOGRAPHY – our approach to photography is a mixture of candid and staged, dependent on what you want. When grading your images, we have several styles – choose between vivid with lots of colour, light and airy with a slight fade, a darker feel, and black and white – or let us choose for you.
- LIVE STREAMING SERVICES – since the arrival of the dreaded Covid pandemic (tired face!!), many of our couples have opted for smaller, more intimate weddings with limited guests. With international travel restrictions, many loved ones are not able to attend. This caused us to come up with a live streaming solution for our couples and introduce a heap of new equipment to allow those loved ones who cannot attend to at least participate online and stream via a private youtube link. This has been a proven success, and now we pride ourselves on offering live streaming as one of our core services.
- AERIAL DRONE CINEMATOGRAPHY – we love to squeeze in some drone footage on your special day – location and weather permitting
- GOOD SOUND QUALITY – we make sure that we capture the best possible sound on the day. We do this with a lapel mic we place on the groom, and recording devices run out of the celebrants mic. We also record direct out of any venue PA and sometimes the band or DJ system to get the highest possible audio which we later sync with the editing footage.
- MUSIC – we have access to various licensed music websites, which we get our couples to pick from before we start editing the footage
- HANDCRAFTED USB GIFT BOX – Once we have finished editing and received your approval on our work, we then upload all the files to a beautifully handcrafted wooden USB and gift box, which send to you in the mail
Driftwood Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula

Serious about photos, not so serious, guy.
I am privileged to be able to live a life dedicated to capturing moments and memories.
I look to shoot my ocean work in a way that makes you – even if it’s just for a split second – hear the silence as a wave crests towards its inevitable finale, feel the blast of the spit of a barrel stinging your cheeks and ears, and see the magic that can only come from the combination of light and water. Seeing, hearing, feeling these moments as a surfer is what ultimately led me to this career as a photographer.
Little did I know that the photography of people would quickly rival my passion for ocean photography. Specifically, the union of two people. Being privy to one of the most intimate days in a couples life and responsible for capturing the said day in a way that truly represents them has developed an equal passion for wedding photography. As every couple is unique, I take a unique approach to capturing your special day; some people are comfortable in front of a camera, many are not (me included). It is with a relaxed, fun and unobtrusive approach – fluid to the tides of the day – that result in the most memorable and natural moments, void of staged and starched moments, in an album representing the true you and your loved ones. This all might sound a little serious, and whilst I take it seriously, the most important thing is to have fun with it!

Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula
So you’re getting hitched? Congratulations! And now you’re looking for a wedding photographer. Your idea of a wedding is spending as much time with family and friends, not having to pose for photos for hours on end and just having one big party. All with a big fat smile planted on your face. Are we right?
We know that a wedding is not a fashion shoot for a wedding magazine, so we don’t treat it like that.
We will just take a little bit of time to get some great photos with your family, wedding party and of course the two of you. But we guarantee it won’t be for hours on end.
Following a non-intrusive approach, we will photograph your wedding as it unfolds. We will capture it beautifully and naturally, always looking out for the simple and real things that happen. We won’t ask you to stage anything because that’s just weird and awkward. Sound like you?
Who Are We?
With loads of experience under our belt, the team here at Love is Sweet Weddings live, eat and breathe weddings. Our team of creative professionals don’t do this as a hobby, and we do this for real. Many of our clients tell us how calm yet attentive we are, making a really big difference to their day.
All of us here at Love is Sweet share the same vision when it comes to working with stunning light, photographing your wedding for real (i.e. no awkward stuff) and, of course, excellent service. So no matter who is behind the camera, your experience will be amazing.
Wedding Photography Packages
We know that weddings come and in all shapes and sizes. So we have a variety of packages to suit everyone from the full shebang to elopements and everything in between.

Michael Briggs Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula
0421 461 296
I’m a Mornington Peninsula Wedding Photographer
My name is Michael, but most people call me Briggsy.
Thanks so much for stopping by my website, I’m stoked that I’d even be considered to be a part of your day.
Wedding photography has been my full-time job for over 5 years now, and it still blows my mind that I’ve managed to turn something that I truly love into a living.
Every wedding I photograph, I’m there to immerse myself in the day and become a part of it.
I want to be there to capture all those amazing moments, exactly as they are, and unfold, organically:
- The exciting moments.
- The fun moments.
- The emotional moments.
- The loud moments.
- The quiet moments.
- The in-between moments.
- The moments you wouldn’t have expected to happen.
- The ‘must have’ moments.
And of course, you’re going to want some kick-arse couple portraits amongst the mix too. But I don’t think we need to leave this, your party for hours on end, to get something sweet & real, like this. My number one priority is that you remember exactly how you felt on the day when you look at your wedding photos.
And after the day is all done and dusted, it’s always rad to have something that you can hang on your wall forever. Or print in a beautiful album. I do also take ‘those’ family photos. I know your mum is going to want them, even if you don’t.
Free The Bird Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula
For the most part, my upbringing entailed a nomadic existence with my family. This consisted of makeshift homes made from the back of cars, tents, buses and anything in between. Although this upbringing wasn’t ideal in many ways, this non-material existence and tight perimeters with my family taught me what I consider to be most important in life. The love I share with my family, friends, and wife makes this life beautiful and is what I treasure most in the world.
This belief may be part of the reason I have such a passion for photographing weddings. This day is such an important part of peoples life. It is a rare opportunity to communally celebrate love, together with your partner and all the special people you have invited to be part of this day.
Free the Bird is a business purely driven by passion. Before starting to Free the Bird, I had a great paying job, a beautiful house and a nice car. It was all I could have dreamt of, but there was one thing missing, and that was passion. It’s hard to live happily without this vital ingredient, so (with the push of my wife) I put everything on the line, and I started following my dreams. This was the beginning of Free the Bird.
Three years later, I am still here, as passionate about photography as the day I started. I still get nervous with excitement before every wedding day, and I still excitedly show Leelou all my favourite photos the next day. This is how I know I am still on the right path in life. The day the excitement goes away, and I stop pushing my photos to be better, then the last is the day I put down my camera. Every couple deserves to have a photographer at their wedding that strives to do their very best every time they pick up their camera.
Free the Bird’s core values are simple. We create an experience to feel comfortable, safe, and well looked after from day one. We understand that a wedding day can be a big venture for most people, so we eliminate any stress and keep everything we do very transparently. Our clients’ commitment is to deliver work at the highest quality that will last to be enjoyed by future generations.
Locus Wedding Photography Mornington Peninsula
I’m Vesna, and thanks for dropping by. I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Keilor East in Melbourne.
Being a female photographer, there are many advantages, and I don’t let them pass by. I will be your hairdresser, tailor or waitress if that will create a better day and experience for you.
As one of a few female wedding photographers in Melbourne, with my attention to detail and energetic personality, along with the stunning images, I am now complimented as one of Melbourne’s finest female photographers.
Besides my spunky husband and my adorable kids, photography is my biggest love. I have been in the industry for over a decade, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I feel a little spoilt to call this my job.
I love everything about photography, from the initial meeting to the final presentation of the images. The smiles and tears of happiness when you see your images is my biggest reward, knowing that I created an eternal memory.
Also, I love coffee and a chat, so feels free to get in touch with me.
What To Look For When Hiring A Wedding Photographer
A killer personality that jives with yours
I honestly think finding someone with who you can have a glass of wine (or a cup of coffee / or plate of tapas / or share a bag of Skittles) is the biggest factor in hiring your wedding photographer! This is someone you will be working with a lot over the coming months/year; this is someone with whom you are likely going to be investing a chunk of your wedding budget; this is someone you will be trusting to help run your wedding day. You better like them!
It makes life so much easier if you can feel comfortable shooting your wedding photographer a text to ask a quick question or confirm a detail. This person can be a huge asset to planning your day if you want them to be–and if you let them. So take advantage of that and make friends!
A photography style you absolutely love
Do you find yourself looking at a wedding photographer’s photos wishing that wedding was your wedding so you could hang them on your walls? Do you scroll through a gallery and think, Even if that were the only photo I had from my wedding, I’d be thrilled. Do you stalk their Instagram and tap tap tap on every single post because it’s seriously just so dang good? Congratulations, you’ve found a style you love. Ding ding ding!
Finding a style you love is so important because we photographers are creatures of habit. Yes, we experiment and keep things fresh, but you shouldn’t find a wedding photographer who cranks out one wedding gallery that’s moody and matte and another that’s bright and airy. We find our niche and stick to it. That said, if you find someone who seems a bit inconsistent, it might be a red flag that they’re still experimenting to find their style. That’s fine! Just be aware of that if you book them.
Someone who isn’t afraid to take charge
Have you ever been to a wedding as a guest, family member, or part of a wedding party where the photographer is trying to organise folks for some pictures, and it just isn’t happening? Nothing fires me up more than to be on the other side of the camera across from someone who is too nervous about taking charge. Come on – speak up! Every minute of a wedding day is precious, and if your wedding photographer isn’t comfortable leading the madness, that time can slip away faster than you can say ‘bouquet toss.’
This doesn’t mean you’re looking for a meanie! A good wedding photographer should be able to command a room without being a total witch. They should be able to pal around with the wedding party and still get everyone to “Look here and smile!” when they need to. And they should be able to give polite but assertive direction from everyone to your 90-year-old grandpa in a wheelchair, to your 3-year-old cousin who missed nap time, to your groomsmen who snuck a flask in his suit jacket. It’s a fine line, but such an important one.
Now, you’ve got some homework to do – this is something that may be a bit more challenging to learn from a website or email exchange, so don’t be afraid to ask around (you can totes ask for references or just start snooping), or ask if you can meet in person.
