About Me


wedding photographer yarra valley rick liston

I was born in the Yarra Valley, raised in Healesville, and after many years abroad I know there’s no better place in the world to be raising my daughter. I have a terrific rapport with the local venues and am honored to have a great reputation in the area for quality photography.

I offer some very affordable wedding packages including the All Day Wedding Photographer package and a digital package that will fit comfortably with most budgets. I also utilise some creative equipment that you will not find elsewhere in the region. It’s my purpose here to provide you with the best possible wedding photos for your day and to leave you brimming with happiness every time you look at them for years to come.

I would absolutely love the opportunity to meet you in person for a coffee (Healesville Harvest is my favourite!) to ensure we will be a perfect fit for one another, absolutely obligation-free of course. I want you to feel comfortable with me as we will be working and having fun together on perhaps the most special day of your lives.

Yarra Valley Wedding Photography Packages


As your Yarra Vallery wedding photographer, I want to give you as much value as possible. I offer three customisable wedding photography packages that provide you with the best possible coverage of your wedding day and all of the professionally retouched photos are yours to keep! My Wedding Photography Yarra Valley Packages start from $1800.


I offer my clients a 6hr coverage of their wedding day which should be enough to cover the bride and groom getting ready, the ceremony, location shoot, and the start of the reception.

The images will be professionally retouched and you will receive them on a highspeed USB stick. Your gorgeous wedding photos will be delivered in both High Resolution for quality printing, and Low Resolution for email/social sharing. Additionally, I will host your own private web gallery or your wedding photos to share with your family and friends.


This package includes everything from the digital package, plus 2 additional hours and $1000 credit toward a carefully designed wedding album with the best shots handpicked first by me, then confirmed by you, and presented in a stunning hand made (in New York), lay-flat wedding album covered by a lifetime guarantee.


This package includes All Day coverage, $1500 album credit, and a beautiful, high quality printed and framed 16 x 20″ enlargement.

What's the deal with the album credit?

The cost of each album will vary depending on size and page count. So offering album credit gives you a lot more flexibility to create the perfect album for you rather than offering a fixed album for everybody. Have a look at the additional pricing section for an idea on what you can get for the album credit provided.

Will we get to meet you before the wedding?

Absolutely. I would love to take the opportunity to get to know you both and ensure we vibe on the same wavelength. The Yarra Valley has the virtue of being laden with incredible cafes for us to meet at. If you are interstate or abroad, we can also just as easily set a skype date.

Argh! I hate posing. I just want natural shots. Is that ok?

Not a problem. My ninja skills are top notch and I am very effective at capturing those spontaneous funny/sentimental/romantic moments. If you like, during the location shoot, I can offer some direction, but they will be general ideas and I always endeavour to keep it fun and light hearted.

So what will we ultimately receive?

This is your wedding day, your moments, your memories, and there’s nothing I want more than for you to have your images that capture these to do with whatever you please. That’s why in all of my packages, you receive your unwatermarked, unrestricted, professionally edited photographs in high resolution to be enlarged and printed to your heart’s content. You will also receive web friendly versions that can be shared online through any social media sites. I will even put together a bespoke web album of the best shots so you can easily send the link to anyone around the world.

If you book one of my album packages, you will receive album credit toward a stunning leather bound, lay-flat, seemless wedding album filled with thick, premium photographic pages.

Will all of my photos be photoshopped?

Every photo I take is processed through Adobe Lightroom, with many adjustments including cropping, exposure, highlights/shadows, contrast, vibrancy, colour, noise and sharpness. All of these combine to create incredibly striking images while still looking very natural, not photos that overwhelm you with filters, over saturation or heavy vignetting. I try to achieve an accurate reflection of how the day really looked. I will also create virtual copies of some photos in Black & White when I feel it works well.

What happens if you can’t make it on the day?

In the very unlikely event that I can’t make it to the wedding (it has never happened yet), I have three back up photographers who I will call on to take my place depending on their availability, Chris Garbacz, Mark Fitzgerald and Sarah Mackie.

Is it just you or will there be a second photographer?

Yes, it’s just me, this way I can control the quality of the photos without having to charge double for another experienced, professional wedding photographer. Occasionally, I may bring an assistant who will also be taking photos, but I will get clearance from you first to ensure you won’t mind.

Should we order a meal for you too?

That would be fantastic! Venues will often offer discounted prices for photographer’s meals. Wedding photography throughout a long day takes a lot of energy so some sustenance would be much appreciated. When guests are eating is also not the most ideal time to be taking photos!

If we decide on the day that we’d like you to stay longer, will that be possible?

Of course! My rate for additional time is $200p/hr.

What do I need to provide you with?

I will require a running sheet of the day with the start times, addresses of all locations and important contact numbers. I will also need you to consider in advance which group photos you would like after the ceremony. It will help if you designate a friend or family member (preferably one who is very comfortable being bossy!) who can wrangle the right people together for each photo. These have a tendency to run overtime so the more preparation the better. Ideally, everyone who needs to be in a group photo will know beforehand.

Can you still take photos if it’s raining?

Regardless or the season, there is always going to be a distinct chance of rain, such are the joys of living in the Yarra Valley! Fortunately, I have a very technical piece of equipment for such an occasion, an umbrella! I suggest you bring one too. We can capture some truly unique and shots in terrible weather so even when it’s bad, it’s good.

What equipment do you use?

I shoot Canon, with two Canons actually, equipped with the most professional L-series lenses available, to make sure I’ve always got a huge range of focal lengths at hand to capture any moment no matter where its taking place. You don’t always have time to rush off and change lenses if you see some wedding cake getting flung in the face of a guest across the room!

Will we receive all the images from the wedding?

I will deliver the edited JPEGs of any photo that has any semblance of merit. Photography will always incur duplicates, technical errors and simply bad shots. I will filter these out and edit the rest.

What is the turnaround time for the photos?

I know how excited you will be to get the photos back of your wedding day, that’s why I don’t wait for months to return the images. I aim to get the digital photos back to you within two weeks of the wedding day, a timeline I am proud to offer as it is an incomprehensible rarity in the industry.

Sounds great! We are totally vibing. How do I lock you in?

Once you are comfortable with me as your wedding photographer and would like to lock in the date, I will require a $300 deposit with the remainder to be paid on or before the day of the wedding. We can then look forward to spending one of the best days of your lives together and creating breathtaking moments that will be captured and enjoyed forever.
