Who is MV Photography?
I am Marcel, a sole trader based in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne photographing weddings all over Victoria. My skills come from years of experience with 35mm film and clunky old SLR cameras with manual control which taught me how to visualise a photograph before it is even taken (no LCD screens on the back of cameras in those days). It also gives me a structured approach to wedding photography and combined with a quirky and modern style you get fun loving images that ooze creativity and flair. No ‘say cheese’ moments here, just a pure reflection on the couple’s personality and love for each other.
With 15 years plus in the customer service industry I put the customer first. I only photograph a select amount of weddings per year to allow me to concentrate on your wedding specifically with little distraction. What else do I do you ask? I also act as a second photographer for many other photographers in the wedding industry and they do the same occasionally for me too, I also take on private photographic commissions and sell limited edition landscape prints.
That thing they call a ‘Mission Statement’
MV Photography provides a great value service with a personal touch. You are not treated as ‘just another wedding job’ as we will be best of friends at the end of the day and I adjust my photographic style to suit your personalities and passions. I can cater to any need with a great range of wedding photography packages and stand alone printed products to choose from; because there is nothing better than seeing the best day of your lives in print.
What makes me different than the other million photographers and uncle Bob with a good camera?
Having a background in 35mm film, years of experience in this industry, a creative background and a unique vision; I offer the complete package when it comes to providing excellent imagery and quality products. With top professional grade photographic gear I will ensure my equipment won’t let me down as it is always serviced and cleaned by Melbourne’s best repair agent. With this level of equipment I can operate in the most difficult of lighting conditions and provide premium results and then edit my captures in a colour controlled environment from camera to print. My printed and mounted products have been carefully selected for archival level display (museum quality), some being totally exclusive to my pro photographic lab of choice. In all, only the best for the best day of your lives.
What I can do for you…
There are no time limits on your packages, just predetermined coverage of your wedding day or celebration; so if you want a three hour portrait session at two or three locations, I include it. I am there to capture the love, the celebration and the fun. You get the Digital Files regardless of what wedding package you choose and you have your images presented to you personally in a viewing at my location in Bayswater . Call or email to make an appointment at my office for a consultation to chat about your vision for the wedding and so I can show you my photographic and print samples.
I service Melbourne CBD, city fringe, Dandenong Ranges, Upwey, Ferntree Gully, Belgrave, Lilydale, Eltham/Greensborough, Frankston/Mornington areas, Yarra Valley/Yarra Ranges and Inverloch/Wonthaggi/Phillip Island areas. Interstate and international services are available on request. I am also available for private commissions including Wedding Engagement Photography Sessions, Magazine Style Vehicle Shoots and Business Photography (products, services, premises and staff).
