Melbourne Family and Wedding Photographer

Hello! I’m Amber, a Melbourne family and wedding photographer.
This includes family photography, child photography, maternity and newborn photography, pet photography and wedding photography.

I have been photographing since I was 14 years old, so that makes this year my 24th year in the industry! First I studied my Bachelor of Arts in Photography then dived straight into the workforce. There has not been a week I have not picked up my camera.

It’s my passion. I love working with different people and documenting their lives as they unfold.
I love light and pretty places. I love animals. I love weddings and children.
Working as a Melbourne family and wedding photographer makes me so happy!

People ask how would I describe my style? Gosh it’s tricky to explain something that I do instinctively. Words that others have used are:

Storytelling • Whimsical • Documentary • Natural • Posed and Unposed • Captivating • Emotional • Rich • Moody • Artistic

I like to keep things wild and messy and real, but technically perfect. If I can! (I am my biggest critic.)

Service areas include but are not limited to: The Dandenong Ranges, The Yarra Valley, The Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne, The Victorian Alpine Region, The Great Ocean Road, Jamieson, Ballarat, Flinders, Bright, Olinda, Warburton, Fairfield, Kew, Brighton, Toorak, Apollo Bay, Frankston and any other pretty place in Victoria! I am of course open to travelling interstate once this whole Covid mess settles down!

Is there anything you would like to know? I am always happy to chat!

Words from Hanna and Tristan

I have no words to describe Amber and her work. She was prompt to respond since the very beginning and just very easy to work with. Since the moment I saw her in person at the wedding I felt very relaxed and comfortable around her. She has this beautiful personality which makes anyone at ease - very helpful since I was quite nervous that day.

The pictures were absolutely gorgeous! beyond our imagination. She’s clearly super talented and loves what she does. I just couldn’t believe how good she is seeing our pictures for the first time. I was lost for words!
We couldn’t been happier with the results. She’s just amazing! Thank you so much for making our special day so perfect, Amber! You are the best!

Words from Emily and Tom

Choosing Amber Williams Photography for our wedding day was one of the top 5 decisions I've made in my whole life! We're so glad that we found her online, and reached out to her after having a look at her portfolio which we felt resonated with us. She was so so so lively and energetic on our wedding day, did her absolute best to accommodate all the shots we were after, and wasted no time with directing our photos, so that we could get back to celebrating with our family and friends on the d-floor. We felt so comfortable with her, and she took so many photos that we will treasure forever. Thank you Amber!!!

Words from Katrina and Ari

We were very fortunate to have met and engaged Amber to photograph our wedding at The Stones of The Yarra. After seeing Amber's work I knew immediately that she was the right lady for the job. On the day of our wedding, I'm sure that it was a photographer's worst nightmare. But I had every confidence that if any one could capture our memories it was Amber. When we got to see our photos I was not disappointed. I love them so much. The mood, the moment every was perfect. Thank you so much Amber.

Words from Yvette and Julian

Amber was fantastic to work with for our wedding, I can't recommend her enough.
Very experienced, professional and a lovely persona, took on board how and who we wanted photographed on the day.
She made us feel at ease, allowing us to be present and natural in front of the camera and creating some fantastic moment. We can't thank her enough for capturing the beauty and love on the day.

Words from Vincent and Carly

Amber is a great artist and professional. After our wedding got delayed from its initial date, she was understanding and fortunately available for the new date. I am so glad she was! Amber was on time, focused & organised, but more importantly she was empathetic and enthusiastic. She rolled with the punches for the disorganised start that was our wedding day, letting me know what she needed and getting started. She was excellent at directing her subjects and showed a clear vision throughout the shoot. She turned the editing around within a very short time for the number and quality of the shots. The results were spectacular and I would happily recommended Amber!

Words from Emily and Tales

The photos are incredible. Just stunning. Your ability to capture natural yet intimate and special moments is amazing. You are such an artist with the camera! And we loved you on the day, we were so comfortable with you and you helped us feel relaxed, joyful and natural. I really felt you were there in heart with us, enjoying every moment and the wild ride! And you were there for every moment but were never in our faces, never distracting us from what we were engaged in- quite a balance and skill. I’m so glad we found you for our wedding, we feel so lucky!! These are photos we will treasure forever. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much.

Words from Richard and Angela

Amber Williams Photography took the most beautiful photographs on our wedding day at the Melbourne Marriage Registry and Treasury gardens. Her professional natural style of photography (with focus on natural light) really brought joy to us and the day to life! Her vegan ethics coincide with ours, we are delighted her photographs are made in such an ethical way. We highly recommend Amber Williams photography.

Words from Majella and Andrew

We just wanted to send a short note of heartfelt thanks for your support on our wedding day. Looking back, you are so much more than a photographer! De facto florist, dresser, timekeeper, crowd-herder and above all a calming and supportive presence - thank you so much! Your attention to detail was so evident throughout the day.

Words from Andrew and Monica

Wow. We used Amber for our wedding and were blown away with the quality of the photos and her service levels (before, during and after). We would recommend her to any of our friends in a heartbeat. Not only is she one of the top photographers in Victoria I think she must be one or the top people in Victoria based on how nice and natural it felt for her to be part of the day. She honestly made it a better day and we feel grateful we picked her over over photographers.

Words from Belinda and Chris

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for our recent photo shoot. The images are just gorgeous and I am beyond happy with them.
I have just finished compiling them into a photo book and I used just about every one of them!! You have captured our family so beautifully over the years and have truly outdone yourself this time!! Much love and gratitude

Words from Dylan and Dharshi

Amber was our wedding photographer - she did such a wonderful job. We are over the moon with how beautiful the photos are. She captured all the traditional elements of our wedding so beautifully too, and was such a pleasant person to be with. I felt at ease with her as the bride, and hadn't even met her before! All our guests were so impressed by how caring and lovely she was, and she took the time to take plenty of photos of our guests as well. Thank you so much Amber!

Words from Rigo and Jane

Without a doubt the one best photographers Victoria has to offer. Amber continuously delivers incredible photos that are nothing short of magic. Professional, kind and super talented. Thanks heaps for all your work over the years Amber!
