Yarra Valley Wedding Photographer

I couldn’t imagine myself having another job, I absolutely love being a wedding photographer!

The ‘taking photos’ part of the job is fantastic, but that’s not all I love about photographing weddings. I love getting to know you and your story. It’s absolutely beautiful seeing the look in your eyes as you walk down the aisle about to join hands with the love of your life,¬†capturing your husband-to-be’s smile as he sees you for the first time in your radiant dress. I love love, and am so thankful to the couples that let me be a part of their special days.

You probably want to know a bit about me, and not just the reason I love being a wedding photographer. Well, I am based in the Yarra Valley in Melbourne and I have always had a creative flare and have always loved designing things. I actually a run a small branding agency, Payneless Media. We design branding for small businesses, including logos, business cards, websites, photography (of course!) and much more. This works hand in hand with Carley Payne Photography as it means I have full control over my schedule and can meet up with you when it suits you.

I got my first point-and-shoot camera in 2006, however, photography became a big part of my life in 2010 when bought my first DSLR and started taking landscape photos. It then progressed into event photography, a bit of portraiture and then wedding photography. I still really enjoy going on adventures on my free weekends and capturing the beauty of this world we live in. I love travelling and meeting new people.

If you would like to have a chat about your wedding please get in touch. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you (hopefully over a coffee!)
