Real, candid documentary photography

Our favourite stories

This is where you’ll find wedding and portrait stories that we’ve utterly adored capturing.

We’re talking complete chemistry, stunning locations, emotional moments.

We’re Melbourne wedding photographers that are all about storytelling – in images that capture the true you.

So we’ll just let the images do the talking…

on the big day you don’t even notice she’s there

I love your relaxed approach, fly on the wall style, and how you manage to capture natural, beautiful moments – no contrived shots here! You have such a great eye for the most interesting or unexpected angle that pays off.

– Jac & Rich

One word: Perfect.

Nothing was clinical, staged or pushed on us. We ran the show with little guidance. Having a bond with your photographer is vital on the day to capture raw moments.

LJM will be my photographer for every major life event. Lauren makes the whole experience effortless. The moments shared while taking these images were by far our favourite part of the day.

– Mon & Mitch

You have found your photographer

Loz is friendly, easy-going but professional! We were so happy with the end results.

One of our favourite moments of the day was when we went on our shoot with Loz.  Main reason was that her passion and excitement was contagious and we couldn’t have felt more comfortable!
