Yarra Valley Wedding Photographer

Capturing spontaneous, unguarded moments of pure love.

Yarra Valley Wedding Photographer Rick Liston

Hi, I'm Rick!


I’m a Yarra Valley wedding photographer who loves joining adventurous wild hearts on their crazy journey from lovers to lifers.

You won’t just get tear-stained cheeks, bellyaching laughs, high fives and shapes on the d-floor in your photos, you’ll also get them from me! What can I say? I’m a feeler.

I don’t just take photos, I’m here to help you navigate the daunting task of planning your wedding with invaluable local advice. I’m very relaxed and grounded. You’ll get comfortable with me as a friend and be totally at ease on your wedding to naturally reveal your own true, beautiful selves. Nothing awkward, I promise!

I service the Yarra Valley, but you’ll often find me shooting in Byron, Ibiza, or anywhere a good love story beckons.

Let’s start a friendship and create something beautiful together.

"When I look at you, I find it hard to believe that the whole universe had not conspired to bring you to life. I can’t think of a more beautiful reason for it all to exist than for you in this day."


If you want to find out how it actually feels to have me third wheeling on your day, hear it from any one of my legend couples who want you to know exactly what the experience is like.

"Rick was absolutely fantastic!!! He made everyone laugh and really enjoy getting their photos taken. He made my husband and I feel so at ease and really made our wedding an unforgettable day! The quality and professionalism of Rick and his photography is absolutely outstanding and I couldn’t recommend him more highly. Thank you so much Rick for being the BEST wedding photographer we could ever ask for!"


TINEL + MICHAEL // Provenance Wines

"From the onset he made everyone feel comfortable! He was funny, relaxed but at the same time knew what he wanted and how best to get those shots.
Rick brought high energy the whole time, there wasn’t a point in the night where he wasn't trying to grab the perfect picture or make people laugh. I would highly recommend Rick! Thanks for making our day less stressful and more relaxed, taking photos of us in our natural state showing the true feel and vibes of the night. THANK YOU!"


GEMMA + SAM // Zonzo Estate

"When looking for a wedding photographer, stop looking and just hire Rick! Besides all his operational strengths, the photos he took were absolutely incredible and we couldn't have asked for better photos to document our wedding day!

He was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Multiple guests commented on the day that they thought the photographer was awesome- he had great energy and everyone liked him. He was a great presence on the day and we loved hanging out with him!"


LIJA + ROWAN // Immerse Winery

"Rick was truly amazing! He is such a fun and friendly guy and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We didn't once feel awkward and i feel like the photos show our relationship and love for one another so perfectly. I look at each photo and the emotion is so real and makes me feel as if i am back there having the best day of my life."


LAUREN + TIM // Zonzo Estate

"Wow! Where do we start?
We both felt nervous about looking into photographers; we were two people who didn't like having their photo taken, and we were fearful it would be awkward and uncomfortable.
But from the moment we met Rick, we had the feeling that it was all going to be okay! From settling our nerves, to holding bouquets and helping family members with their crutches, Rick really went above and beyond what we could have ever expected!
Rick has an amazing talent for taking beautiful pictures, and capturing the emotion within the moment."


JADE + JAI // Hoddles Creek

"Rick, you're a legend!
From the get go, you were busy snapping away making sure you captured every moment and every angle of our special day. We loved how easy going you were and how you intertwined yourself in the fun we all had. Photos... FREAKIN AMAZING!!!
Would recommend him to anyone wanting unique and candid photos. There are too many incredible shots to choose from to put on out wall. Thank you so much!"


GENEVIEVE + JOSH // Immerse Winery

"It's honestly hard to explain how amazing rick is! He clearly takes the most amazing photos but on top of this is just such an awesome guy! He made our wedding so much fun and captured the day perfectly. Even my brother who hates having photos taken said how amazing Rick was! The slideshow rick provided of the photos is just as amazing and makes us feel like we can relive the day over and over again! Thank you so much rick! ♥️♥️♥️"


CAM + RENEE // The Gables

"As my partner and I were reflecting on how amazing our wedding went, a large part of the success of the day goes to Rick.
He was always exactly where we needed him and made us feel super comfortable taking the photos. We both really appreciated all of his help, laughs and expertise throughout the day. I've been to lots of weddings, and I can honestly say that Rick was one of the most professional, caring, friendly, easy going photographers Ive ever seen. From the first time I met him, he seemed almost like a member of the family rather than a "vendor". HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"


NICOLE + RICK // Immerse Winery

"We chose Rick Liston as our wedding photographer as he comes highly recommended by many YV wedding venues - this is because he is so familiar with the YV.
Rick completely immersed himself in not only our photography, but also became a huge part of our wedding. The guests thought he was amazing, and couldn’t believe the efforts he put in.
Rick worked tirelessly the entire evening, and we found he had a number of secret locations and ways to get the perfect shot."


GEORGIE + ROB // Fig Tree Restaurant


You have absolutely captured the day so perfectly and I feel as though I have just relived every second of it flicking through these amazing photographs. You have just taken me back to all the emotions of the day and I feel as though my family are right here with me again!

We cant thank you enough for being just absolutely perfect, chilled and seamless on the day. You were so easy and fun to deal with, my bridal party have all asked how I found you and how awesome you were.

I am so thankful and lucky to have met you and had you there for the special day."


PAIGE + SIMON // Acacia Ridge

"What can i say about Rick that hasnt already been said. He truly went above and beyond and made our day everything that it was. He was so amazing i couldnt imagine what we would of done without him. Everyone of our friends and family couldnt believe how incredible he was, (he almost got more compliments than the bride :p)
The way he flawlessly worked with our videographer, His ability to make us smile, feel relaxed and enjoy ourselves was shown in the preview photos we got less than 24 hours after our wedding. Truly from the bottom of our hearts thank you Rick!"


VICKY + CAM // Yering

"Rick is hands down the best wedding photographer!
He is so easy going, a joy to be around, captured everything we wanted and MORE on the day and is an all round genuine and lovely man. Rick also went above and beyond by turning around our shots so quickly, we received an amazing edit less than 12 hrs after the wedding. On top of that, the shots are incredible! Thanks again Rick for everything you’ve done. We couldn’t be more thrilled with you and your work. x"


STEPH + GREG // The Farmer's Daughter

"Rick absolutely nailed our wedding day photos! I do not think we will ever be able to get over how INCREDIBLE our photos are!!

My husband & I were able to relive the entire day by looking back at our photos as Rick captured every single moment so perfectly & it really showed through it all just how wonderful our day was!

Extremely grateful to Rick, he was also very lovely to deal with & made us laugh through the whole day. Could not recommend him enough!

Thanks Rick!!"

Love notes from my couples

"Rick, I cannot thank you enough for being a part of our wedding day and for being so wonderful to work with! The photos are absolutely stunning - it was so important to me to have someone who knew and loved the Yarra Valley to capture its beauty and I honestly cannot sing your praises any higher.
More importantly, you were just so lovely and easy and flexible during the day and evening, didn't bat an eyelid when the rain came pouring down and helped to make the experience so much fun!
I hope you a great day with us and I will be recommending you to anyone and everyone.
Thank you so much"

"Rick photographed our wedding and completely exceeded all of our expectations. He was an absolute trooper working in excessive heat when our airbnb had no cooling! He was also so helpful is suggesting places to get photos and was so comfortable to be around! All the guests loved him. We had our photos in less than 2 weeks and we were so thrilled with the amazing photos, we still can't believe how lucky we were to have such a great photographer capture our day. 100% recommend, thank you so much, Rick!"

Love notes from my couples

Rick was our photographer on our wedding day, we couldn't be happier with his service.
Most of the time on the day, we barely even noticed him, but we were totally amazed when got those photos, not a single moment was missed! It feels like he can read your mind, and know when to be and where to capture that moment.
Not only us, all family members and friends love their photos as well. Rick knows well how to get the best out of guests in a fun way.
All in all, Rick is not only a great photographer, he is an amazing artist, highly recommended!"
