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 believe that the key to great wedding photos is being comfortable. Both you being comfortable with me as your photographer and me understanding what makes you smile, what makes you laugh, and what will get the best photos on your wedding day. When you are able to be yourself in front of the camera, we will get natural smiles, candid moments and everything in between to give you a great set of wedding photos.

I’ll make sure that by the time we get to your wedding day, we know each other well, I’ll be a part of your big day and not just a stranger that rocks up with 2 cameras. To do this, we will be in contact many times before your big day to plan all those little details in regards to your wedding. From timeframes to wedding photography locations we will have a plan. We’ll have a practice run – an engagement shoot that gets you and your partner comfortable with the process. We’ll also meet up in person as many times as you need (I love coffee) to make sure that your wedding day, is captured your way.
