SIMPLE + NATURAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
BASED IN THE YARRA VALLEY, MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA
CAPTURING YOUR DAY, YOUR WAY
HI THERE, I’M MATT,
I’D LOVE TO BE A PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY
Thank you for visiting my site! Now and Forever photography is me, Matt Parashis and I would love to be a part of your big day.
I’m a Yarra Valley local and for the better part of the last 10 years, I’ve captured the most important moments and memories for many, many couples. I specialise in taking the stress away from your wedding day and I’ll make sure you have fun and a laugh while we capture those special wedding moments.
I make being photographed a comfortable and fun experience so that you have images to cherish for a lifetime. If I’m lucky enough to be your wedding photographer I promise to take the stress and awkwardness away from being in front of the camera. I make sure I’m more than just a guy who knows how to take photos, I’ll be your mate, the guy who dances awkwardly, says silly things to make you laugh and who’ll make sure your day is extra perfect.
The best bits of your wedding will happen naturally as you’ll be being photographed by a friend, who you know well and just so happens to be there with a few cameras. I’ll capture all those unforgettable moments on your big day and we’ll have fun doing it!
I would love to have a chat with you about your big day – to get in touch feel free to fill in my contact form HERE, email me at email@example.com, give me a call on 0408 356 040, or feel free to message me directly on INSTA or FACEBOOK.

A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
It’s not all about taking photos, wedding photography is also about telling a story. It’s your day and most importantly it’s your story. Whether you’re getting married in your backyard or getting married at a luxury wedding venue – I’ll make sure your story is told the way you want it to be.
I’m a wedding photographer from the Yarra Valley & Dandenongs region but will travel anywhere to help capture a story.
LET’S HAVE FUN, NOT STRESS OUT
Let’s face it, weddings are fun but wedding photography can seem a bit daunting. Instead of stressing about posing, or the way you should hold your hands or stand, let’s just have some fun. By the time we get to take the photos, you will be comfortable with the camera and with me (we would have done an engagement photoshoot), and having been through the process it won’t seem so daunting. We’ll have a laugh, go for a walk, chat about your day and while we do that, I’ll take some photos.
LET’S HAVE A CHAT
If there’s one thing I love just as much as being at a wedding, it’s talking about weddings. Let’s meet up for a coffee and have a chat about your big day. I would love to get to know you and I would love for you to get to know me. We can have a chat about how I can fit into your day and how we can make sure we capture those special moments, together.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY THAT’S TRUSTED BY
GREAT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
STARTS WITH BEING COMFORTABLE
Let’s face it, you don’t want just anyone taking some of the most important photos of your life. The first step in making sure you look great in photos is to make sure that you are comfortable with not only the camera but with the photographer taking them. I pride myself on making sure that what was once a seemingly daunting and stressful thing – getting your photo taken, becomes one that is one of the more memorable moments of your wedding and one that you are looking forward to!

SIMPLE, CANDID AND FUN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
AT ALL GREAT WEDDING VENUES (AND BACKYARDS) IN VICTORIA
I’ve had the absolute privilege to be a part of many people’s weddings at all different styles of wedding venues throughout Victoria. From intimate backyard weddings to wineries, from gardens to beaches and some of the most popular wedding venues in Melbourne. Each has its own style and beauty. From the urban, graffitied streets of inner-city Melbourne to the rolling vineyard-filled hills of the Yarra Valley, it never ceases to amaze me just how unique each venue and each wedding day really is. It’s my pleasure to be able to capture every small detail that makes your wedding day unique – I love helping to tell the story of your wedding day.

Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day, capturing the best and most intimate moments and making the day fun.
You were not in the way, let us be ourselves and you kept us relaxed and allowed us to have a bit of time together. You went above and beyond for us, so thank you again.
