The big day arrived and where better to get prepared than a room overlooking Newcastle Beach at the iconic Noah’s On The Beach.

Ned and Ben then wandered through Newcastle’s city centre to the fabulous 48 Watt Street, a historic church that now plays host to a wide range of events.  The lads were married in the elegant simplicity of the White Hall (photographers love white walls and timber floors!).  A wonderful reception followed in the Main Hall, with its high veilings, stained glass and smoke machine ensuring an atmospheric and celebratory vibe. 

We were so pleased to play a small part in Ned and Ben’s most excellent Newcastle wedding.

"Thank you so much for your time and effort.....   Lovely work."

"We’ve really enjoyed looking back over the day."

Abbi & Alex’s Fabulous Country Wedding There’s a real sense that you’re getting away from it all as you approach Adams Peak Country Estate

It’s nestled on the edge of the Hunter Valley, amongst vineyards and meandering creeks and with magnificent views of the surrounding Brokenback Ranges.

And so, Adams Peak Country Estate provided a fabulous all-in-one location for Abbi and Alex’s big day out.  Their whole day felt joyous, touching moments interspersed by plenty of humour. 

Abbi and Alex were married on The Lawn, with the mountain range as their backdrop.  After being feted by their family and friends, the happy couple joined their bridal party and set forth for The Secret Tree - a wonderful 100 year old Iron Bark tree with sweeping branches and plenty of charm.

They joined their guests in The Barn, which was both rustic and beautifully decorated.  Speeches, feasting, dancing….and a whiskey bar.

Thanks to Abbi and Alex for letting us play a small part in their fabulous Adams Peak Country Estate wedding.

"We love the photos and slideshow - they are amazing!

Thank you so much for everything."

Amy & Bryan's Sensational Mosman Wedding Warm summer air, a Sydney harbour-side setting.....the perfect day to celebrate a wedding!

There were smiles all round as Amy and Bryan arrived at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church for their nuptials.  And it's quite a church, with a beautiful gabled timber roof and a large marble sanctuary.  Photographers always keep an eye on the details - and the classy decorations meant that we were spoilt for choice.

Amy and Bryan sealed it with a kiss and headed to Middle Harbour for a photo shoot with their fun loving bridal party.  A beautiful location to capture some special moments from the biggest day of their lives....

Zest Waterfront at The Spit in Mosman provided an iconic Sydney reception location.  Beautifully appointed, majestically situated - the the ideal venue for Amy and Bryan to celebrate with family and friends.

Hannah & Joel's Awesome Newcastle Wedding High school sweethearts Hannah and Joel celebrated their special day in style...

Newcastle turned on a beautiful sunny March day for our happy couple.  Their bridal party were all smiles as Hannah and Joel applied their finishing touches.

"48 Watt Street", located in the heart of Newcastle, provided a brilliant venue for their ceremony.  The venue is a former church that has been converted into a lovely event space.  The perfect space for Hannah and Joel's happy occasion.

The bridal party moved to some of Newcastle's iconic sights for post ceremony photos.  The grounds around Newcastle Museum at Honeysuckle was the first stop for "the most attractive couple in Newcastle" (see below)!  Hannah and Joel then visited the Merewether Ocean Baths and Merewether Beach for some spectacular landscape shots.

Festivities then moved to the Merewether Surfhouse - a brilliant reception venue with million dollar views of Newcastle's shoreline.  Allowing Hannah and Joel to cap off their day of heartfelt celebration in front of family and friends...

Congratulations to Hannah and Joel on their simply awesome Newcastle wedding!

The Sun Shines on Amanda and Craig's Palm Beach Wedding Locals call the Northern Beaches of Sydney "God's Country".  And when the sun shines brightly on Pittwater's sparkling waters not many people are going to argue.  Certainly no-one who was lucky enough to attend Amanda and Craig's beautiful wedding day.

Amanda and Craig were married beside the tall pines of Governor Phillip Park, with Palm Beach and Barrenjoey Lighthouse as their backdrop.  Sunshine, crashing waves, happy faces......

Later on, we were there as the happy couple meandered along one of Pittwater's many picturesque piers.  And the only photobombing came from a beautiful sunset....

Later still, the Boathouse at Palm Beach turned on the lights and played a superb host to Amanda and Craig's reception.

Congratulations Amanda and Craig, on your wonderful Palm Beach wedding!

Claudine and Ian's Smashing Hunter Valley Wedding! Take some Irish heritage, add some Lebanese heritage - bring them together and you have the perfect Aussie wedding!

Inside the century old sandstone walls of The Carriage House at Chateau Elan, Claudine and Ian exchanged vows in front of family and friends.  They sealed it with a kiss before being showered with rose petals as they took in the congratulations of their nearest and dearest.

The bridal party brought their A-game to the lovely golf course (and vineyard) surrounds of Chateau Elan for a super-fun post-ceremony photo shoot.

Claudine and Ian's reception was in the beautifully appointed Barrington Room at Chateau Elan.  A flawless evening followed that was full of heartfelt speeches, joyful dancing, fine food and excellent wine....

Krystal & Stephen's Stylish Sydney Wedding You got the sense that the whole of Sydney was looking up as Krystal and Stephen readied themselves in separate rooms amongst the dizzying heights of the Meriton Serviced Apartments at World Square.  With smiles on their faces, and surrounded by family and friends, they floated above the city streets.

And when she descended in her beautiful gown, Krystal stopped Sydney's traffic...... well, the stretch Rolls Royce that transported her certainly did!

Stephen had eyes only for his bride as she swept down the aisle on her father's arm.  They sealed it with a kiss (and a signature in the register) and before long the newlyweds were frolicking around the Rocks with their bridal party in tow.

It was entirely appropriate that the chic Regal Room at Conca D'Oro played host to a fabulous reception. 

Hats off to Krystal and Stephen - talk about style with smile!

Hunter Valley Vineyards Wedding - Mel & Morgan's Picture Perfect Day ....married in a beautiful little sandstone church in the countryside before celebrating with family and friends at a top-notch winery just down the road....

Sounds like a fairytale, doesn't it?

When Mel and Morgan reflect on their wedding day in the years to come, they'll find themselves at front and centre of that very fairytale!

The delightful St Patrick's of Nulkaba, with its sandstone walls dating back to 1892, played host to a heartfelt wedding service.

As the sun descended, the warm palate of the Hunter Valley provided the perfect backdrop for some fun and romantic post ceremony portraits of Mel and Morgan and their bridal party.  And in the late afternoon light, the grounds of Tamburlaine Winery provided rich photographic pickings....

And then hours melted into seconds as Mel and Morgan, their family and friends celebrated the occasion at Tamburlaine's award-winning wedding reception venue.

So, well done Mel and Morgan - `twas a really gorgeous Hunter Valley vineyards wedding!

Hawkesbury Wedding - Jen & Majeed's Special Day by the River The sun shone brightly on the meandering Hawkesbury river - whose sparkling waters provided the perfect backdrop to Jen & Majeed's lovely wedding day.

There were smiles all round as Jen approached the riverside gazebo - but none bigger than the smile on Majeed's face.  Seconds melted into minutes and a lingering kiss (and a quick signature) sealed their commitment to one another.  And then Jen and Majeed were showered with rose petals as they wandered together past family and friends...

The Retreat at Wisemans provided a beautifully appointed riverside marquee for Jen and Majeed's wedding reception.  And they danced and were merry as the Paper Hearts two-piece played their little hearts out. 

The new Mrs and Mr snuck away with us for few shots by the river in the late afternoon light...

Huge congrats to Jen and Majeed - it was wonderful playing a small part in your lovely Hawkesbury wedding.

Location Wedding - Nathan & Emma's amazing day at Port Stephens We hit the road north for Nathan and Emma's big day.  It's hardly a chore when you're cruising up to the paradise of Port Stephens!

The brilliantly located Anchorage Port Stephens played host to all of their festivities.

Nathan and Emma were married on the edge of the marina in a warm, heartfelt and fun ceremony - overseen by celebrant extraordinaire - Matt Purcell.

With a drink in their hand, and friends by their side, Nathan and Emma soaked it all in as they meandered happily along the shoreline of Corlette.

No part of their wedding day was more than a few metres from the glistening waters of Port Stephens.  

And this was true of the beautifully appointed room that played host to their reception at the Anchorage.

A truly brilliant sunset heralded the start of the evening's festivities...

What a great day!

Caves Beach Wedding - Kristy & Matt For a beautiful, relaxed beach wedding look no further than spectacular Caves Beach - the perfect Lake Macquarie wedding location...

And Kristy and Matt planned their day perfectly - readying themselves in spacious beach villas at the excellent Caves Beachside Hotel before cruising (in a vintage Kombi) to the spectacularly positioned Caves Beach Surf Lifesaving Club.

The rain stayed away as they tied the knot on the grassy knoll that overlooked the beach.  And then, with the tide perfectly low, the bridal party was able to stroll across the beach to the wonderful caves that give the beach its name.

As the light started to fade, Kristy & Matt made their entrance to their nautically themed, and very well presented, Surf Lifesaving Club Reception.  Special mention to Matt's father, who handmade a model lighthouse - a spectacular centrepiece to the cards and gifts table.

Well done Kristy and Matt - a brilliant Caves Beach wedding!

Athol Hall Wedding - Justin and Yvette (with a Sydney Harbour backdrop) We got to know Yvette and Justin during their lovely pre-wedding shoot around Government House and the Botanic Gardens - and we couldn't wait to shoot their big day.

And happily, Sydney Harbour was also a key element on their beautiful wedding day.

As Yvette and Justin made their final preparations their was an air of excitement, happiness and just a touch of nerves.....

It was the Sacred Heart in Mosman that played host to their warm and personal wedding service.

Once happily betrothed, bride and groom cruised past Taronga Zoo and headed for glorious Bradleys Head - one of the jewels in Sydney Harbour's formidable crown.  And it was there (in the middle of a bustling city of 5 million people) that time seemed to stand still as Yvette and Justin meandered happily along the sands of Athol Bay....

A few minutes walk took Yvette and Justin up to the wonderful Athol Hall.  The hall is heritage listed, located within the Sydney Harbour National Park and has phenomenal views of the city, Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.... 

Athol Hall does a perfect job balancing its history and pristine location alongside being a professionally managed and beautifully decorated reception venue. 

Congrats to Yvette and Justin on their beautiful Sydney Harbour wedding!  Such a fantastic couple.

 "Hi Tim and Andrew!

WOW! Justin and I are in complete awe of our stunning photos! They are beyond our wildest dreams! Justin and I when first looking for a photographer to capture the memories of our special day found ourselves so overwhelmed by the sheer amount of photographers and packages in existence. After sifting through pages and pages of photographers and calling a number, we were no less confused. That is when we stumbled upon the One Million Moments website. We instantly fell in love with the your ability to capture photos in a bright natural light, while also highlighting the subtlties of details that you portrayed in black and white. However, what struck us most was your ability to capture raw, unposed emotion in your pictures.
After enquiring and speaking to Andrew for over the phone 15 minutes, wedding photography made so much more sense than ever had speaking to other photographers. He took the time to listen to what we wanted out of our wedding photography and made suggestions about our wedding timeline based on how natural lighting changes through-out the day. From that point forward, you both displayed such a keen interest in our special day and capturing it just the way we wanted. After recieving the photos from our engagement shoot, we knew our wedding photos were going to turn out stunning, but you have completly blown us away. You have not just captured photos of flowers, cakes and dresses, but you have captured the feeling of walking down the aisle to Justin, you have captured the pure emotion in his eyes as we first glanced at each other. You have captured the joy and excitment of the bridal party and the guests as we danced long into the night. We truly thank you from the bottom of our heart for capturing these priceless memories! You have caused us quite a dilemma though... how on earth are we going to pick just a couple to put on canvases?!
Thank you to infinity and beyond!
Yvette and Justin"

Hawkesbury Wedding – Chantal & Nathan's Beautiful Day It was appropriate that the warm sun shone brightly on Chantal and Nathan's beautiful wedding day.  Two warmer people you could not hope to meet - it was a day of joy and love.

The grounds of the Sebel Hawkesbury provided the perfect lakeside location for their happy ceremony.  And magic happens sometimes - with each small gust of wind, tree blossoms slowly floated down towards the bridal party...

After the ceremony, the stunning paulownia tree plantation in Richmond provided an amazing canvas for some photographic portraiture.  It was a photographer's dream as Chantal, Nathan and their bridal party wandered through the beautiful dappled light created by avenues of tall trees. 

The well appointed Novella Function Centre in Bonnyrigg then played host to a reception that was just as warm and heartfelt as the remainder of their day.

We are so pleased to have been a small part of Chantal and Nathan's awesome Hawkesbury wedding.

Northern Beaches Wedding - Kimberley & Adam   

The calm waters of Pittwater provided a sparkling backdrop to Kimberley and Adam's most excellent wedding day.
The happy couple exchanged vows on the waterfront terrace at the Newport Mirage, with Sydney's spectacular Pittwater stretching behind them to the horizon.
As the sun slinked lower in the sky, Kimberly and Adam wandered down to the waterfront with drinks in hand.  A jetty stretched out before them and it provided a stunning location for some newlywed portraits.
The Newport Mirage's Pittwater Reception Room then played host to a true celebration - much fun and (just the right amount of) frivolity!

And few things have looked prettier than Amanda's stunning wedding gown hanging from a low branch in the gardens of the guesthouse.  (Well done Newcastle Bridal House for the lovely gown!)

Peppers Guest House in Pokolbin played host to a lovely and personal garden ceremony, where our happy couple exchanged nuptials underneath the broad branches of an enormous deciduous tree.

Before long, Amanda & Josh were wandering arm-in-arm down their aisle (of rose petals) to take in the congratulations of family and friends.  Thereafter, the surrounding gardens provided an evergreen backdrop for some intimate location portraits.

That evening the beautifully appointed Tallawanta Room played host to an enthusiastic reception celebration.

Curzon Hall Wedding - Gabby and Craig in the Enchanted Garden They may have chosen to be married in an Enchanted Garden, but it was Gabby and Craig who brought the magic to their brilliant wedding day.

Under deep blue skies they were joined together in a joyful summer ceremony within the grounds of the spectacular Curzon Hall.

Then, hand-in-hand, Gabby and Craig wandered the Curzon Hall grounds for a stunning location shoot.

And then, as the light softened, they joined their guests in the Agincourt Room, with its high ceilings, big mirrors and French doors leading out to a breathtaking terrace.  The room's decoration was magazine perfect, the catering top-class, the music excellent, the speeches heartfelt and the dance floor was.....pumping!

"Massive thanks to Andrew and Tim who made our wedding photography a really fun and relaxed experience!  We shopped around many Sydney wedding photographers trying to find the right fit for us and after finding One Million Moments Photography we were very happy!  From the planning stages Andrew and Tim were able to provide useful advice and feedback that helped us plan out what we wanted to happen on the day.  On the day itself both Andrew and Tim were extremely professional and fun to be around!  Their relaxed attitude put us both at ease and nothing was a problem, even when we decided to change a few things on the fly.  Andrew and Tim provide an excellent service and totally value for money.  We would definitely use One Million Moments again in a heartbeat, but hopefully won't have to ;) Thank you so much for making the photography fun and easy!"

Central Coast Wedding – Chelsea & Michael Bring On The Party! Lizotte’s Central Coast Restaurant is nestled amongst the tall timber of Kincumber – the perfect backdrop for Chelsea and Michael’s wedding.

Right on cue, a passing shower heightened the sense of anticipation and heralded Chelsea’s arrival at the ceremony.  A lovely ceremony followed, bursting with smiles.

And a few splashes of rain were never going to dampen the spirits of this happy couple.  Indeed, the sun shone brightly as the bridal party enjoyed cutting loose under the trees during a fun location shoot with us. 

The reception that followed at Lizotte’s was a true celebration – excellent speeches and a party atmosphere that was led by a heaving dance-floor.

A sensational Central Coast wedding for a sensational couple!


Lizotte's Restaurant, Kincumber -


"OH MY GOD!!! They are so amazing!!! Thank you so much. We are in love with them. They are more beautiful than we pictured. Thank you so much for everything. You guys were fantastic...You made our day...."

"I truly do not have the words to express Michael and I's gratitude and thanks. The photography was one of the most important things to us (it took me 6 weeks of research to decide on a photographer!) and we were not disappointed. From the moment we got our engagement photos back I knew our wedding photos were going to be more than either of us expected. Tim and Andrew go above and beyond. Half way through me getting ready I asked if they needed my shoes, ring etc to take photos and their response was "Chels, don't worry we have already done it, just enjoy yourself and let us take care of it". They are so professional and at the reception I didn't even notice they were there in the sense that they weren't in our face or intrusive. They captured all the moments we wanted and the end result is so amazing. I can't recommend them enough. I've had my photos for a day and I've already looked at them at least 10 times. I am struggling to figure out which photos to have printed! Thank you both so much - forever grateful."

Wedding reception - lighting up the dance floor! By day, we pride ourselves on capturing natural images that tell the story of a wedding day.

But by night, we love making our couples look like rockstars!

By hiding a small number of kicker lights around the reception dance floor we are able to backlight our couples (and their guests).  These kicker lights carve people out of the background - giving the images get an edgy and unique look and feel....

Fun with Water Views - Nicole and Adam's Inner-West Wedding The limousine pulls into the entrance of Le Montage, Lilyfield.  As the beautiful bride alights, pockets of sunlight glisten across Iron Cove Bay.  Upstairs on a beautiful outdoor terrace, a relaxed, ever-beaming, groom awaits her arrival.

After a lovely ceremony - at the beautifully appointed Le Montage - Nicole, Adam and their bridal party climb aboard the limousine....and it cruises towards the city....

And, starting from Lady Macquarie's Chair, the playful bridal party laugh up a storm in the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney.  With the city as their backdrop, the happy couple and their closest friends light up the overcast afternoon.

As the light fades, the evening festivities call....and Conca D'Oro in Riverwood plays an excellent host to a superb reception.

Congrats to Nicole and Adam on a fantastic day!

Sydney Harbour Wedding – Georgia & Jake’s day to remember Sydney Harbour sparkles like few others, particularly when previously threatening clouds drift away.  On this occasion, however, Sydney’s centrepiece was comprehensively outsparkled by Georgia’s beautiful sequined dress.  And so, with their backs to the water, Georgia and Jake were married in the beautiful and intimate McKell Park on Darling Point.

The happy couple then added one more layer to the rich history of the fabulous Cell Block Theatre in Darlinghurst.  Two long tables of guests ate, drank and were merry behind the evocative stone walls of the elegantly decorated theatre.  Touching and honest speeches preceded energetic dancing and an enthusiastic clientele for the One Million Moments photobooth!

Botanic Gardens Wedding - Nadia & Brett in “Love with Harbour Views” It’s a warm spring afternoon.  Bees buzz between lavender buds while a light breeze blows off the harbour. 

Under the white rotunda the bride and groom exchange vows, beaming smiles and finally a kiss.  After family and friends have feted the happy couple, the Choo Choo Express arrives!  And then, as they journey around the Sydney Botanic Gardens aboard their bright red train, Nadia and Brett seem to receive the congratulations of Sydney –as they are greeted with cheers, applause and waving at every turn.  Sydney Harbour, the Opera House, the CBD and the Harbour Bridge provide the perfect backdrop for a wonderful location shoot.

The beautifully appointed Treasury Room at the Intercontinental Hotel, Sydney was the perfectly elegant choice for Nadia and Brett’s reception.  And when sunset photos at the Club Intercontinental (which soars 30 floors above Sydney Harbour) are followed by beautiful Bulgarian folk songs - you know its a harbourside wedding to remember.....

Photo Booth Fun! What is a Photo Booth?

The idea of a photo booth means different things to different people.  But the underlying principle of a photo booth is: fun photos and instantaneous results.

Photo booths are a great addition to a wedding reception - they add to the fun and laughter of the occasion.  The end result is loads of unique photos of family / friends.

The One Million Moments Photo Booth

Our photo booth is a modern, digital version of the traditional photo booth.  It's kind of like a portable photographic studio.  Let's explain -

We use a professional camera (on a tripod) with professional lighting (umbrella flashes etc).  As soon as a photo is taken it is instantly transmitted to a nearby laptop for all to see.  All we need is a few metres of wall-space - there's no oversized booth, it doesn't need to dominate the room.  We bring along a range props that are fun, and allow people to be creative (more detail below).  

We're conscious that the photo booth is one small part of a reception.  We take the time to liaise with you about how your photo booth will work and when the appropriate time to 'open' the photo booth is (usually after formalities have concluded).

What are the benefits of a Photo Booth?

Lots of fun, unique and professional photos of your wedding guests (and you!).

An extra dimension to your wedding reception that contrasts nicely with the formalities. 

The perfect way for your guests to let their hair down and have a laugh.

Instant results on a laptop screen!  And we'll upload the photo booth images onto Facebook and/or our website (as you please) within days of your wedding.  You'll love having some professional photos from your big day back so quickly - it keeps the good vibe of your big day going!

Do you provide props?


We use props that encourage and harness the creativity of you and your guests.  Handheld blackboards, empty picture frames, oversize scrabble letters, fun get the idea!

And - of course - you are welcome to bring your own!

How much $?

Pre-Wedding Shoots - What to expect.... Pre-Wedding Shoot?

A pre-wedding shoot provides newly engaged couples with the perfect opportunity to get some beautiful portraits in a relaxed atmosphere.

It's a great way to get to know your photographers before the excited delirium of your wedding day.

The images that you get back from a pre-wedding shoot are pretty useful for save the date cards, wedding invitations, reception decorations (wall prints, table decorations etc).... 

Professional photographic prints (in heaps of sizes) and canvasses can be ordered directly from our website - we use a fantastic, professional print shop. You can also order a beautiful fine art album through us.

We'll prepare a lovely (private) digital gallery for you to share with family and friends - and it's easy for us to transport the gallery to Facebook if you please.



That said, we generally recommend outdoor settings - a nice park, nature reserve, beach, garden, farm....

For the best photographic light (away from the harsh midday sun), give some thought to having the shoot first thing in the morning, or last thing in the afternoon.

What to expect...


And approximately 50 professional processed images.

Did we mention fun?

Here's a blog post about a brilliant pre-wedding shoot at and around the Sydney Botanic Gardens:

What to wear...

- Plain clothes are best (avoid big logos, band t-shirts etc)
- Solid colours are great (but checked and moderate patterns are fine too)
- Avoid clothes colours that are close to skin tone, or too bright
- Wanna bring a change of clothes? - sure!

The most important thing is to be comfortable in what you're wearing.

What about make-up?

Sure.  But try to keep it reasonably subtle and natural - particularly if your partner is not wearing any :)

Pre-Wedding Shoot - Yvette & Justin When it comes to selecting a location for a pre-wedding shoot, the combination of Government House, the Royal Botanic Gardens and the NSW State Library is pretty hard to beat!

And this is how we spent a lovely morning getting to know Yvette and Justin.   We met in the picturesque gardens of Government House, meandered through the glorious Botanic Gardens and finished up exploring a few nooks and crannies inside the State Library.

Thanks to Yvette and Justin for being a brilliantly fun, easy-going and happy couple - we loved hanging out with you.

Can't wait for the wedding!

Hunter Valley Wedding - Jill & Chris’ Flawless day in the Country On beautiful rolling hills just to the north of Maitland in the Hunter Valley, stands the historic Tocal Homestead.  It’s here, in the front garden of the homestead, that Chris and Jill tie the knot in a lovely ceremony. 

And then, with cooling drinks in hand, the happy couple and their bridal party wander around the beautiful grounds.  Tocal Homestead's grounds are a wonderful place for a location shoot, with formal gardens, open paddocks, farm-yard animals, historic buildings, ramshackle barns..... 

A wonderful reception follows in a fantastically refurbished hay shed with their extended families front and centre.  Delicious food, touching speeches and enthusiastic dancing cap off their truly memorable Hunter Valley wedding.

Tocal Homestead:


"Hey guys, this is fantastic!! Cheers to the best wedding photographers ever! You guys did a fantastic job on our wedding day and made the photography a pleasure.  We would recommend you to anyone"
