Chris Garbacz | Destination Wedding Photographer

Photographing adventurous weddings for rad couples all over Australia, New Zealand and the World

Wedding Photography

Below you will find a variety of awesome weddings that I have photographed in a variety of amazinggg locations to give you a feel for my style – which if you haven’t noticed is relaxed, non-posey, fun and full of life! I’m also on an elite list of world class photographers called Fearless Photographers, a unique directory of the world’s best wedding photographers who are not afraid to go above and beyond, push the limits and surprise couples with extraordinary wedding photography! Lastly, I’m an accredited professional photographer and member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography.

Although I’m mainly a Melbourne Wedding Photographer and country Victoria, I also LOVE to shoot interstate and internationally. I have photographed weddings in Sydney, Adelaide, tropical Queensland in places like Hamilton Island, Port Douglas and Hayman Island as well as destination weddings in Bali, the US and Europe.

SO, if you’re madly in love and getting married in an awesome location, get in touch! Tell me your plans and if I’m still available on your day I would love to catch up with you guys for a chat and be a part of your special day!

Hey, I’m Chris! 🙂

I have been specialising in wedding photography in Melbourne, Australia and beyond since 2007! I am passionate about capturing and creating the most amazing wedding photography of your big day and it definitely shows in my images as well as in the way I interact with my couples! I have a very unobtrusive way of doing things, NO POSING (hahaha), I really just enjoy having fun and laughing with my couples all day long.

Weddings on a beach, in a forest, winery, on top of a mountain or any unique destination are my thing, so if your plans involve any of those amazing locations then we are going to get along perfectly and I’d love to hear from you! You can check out my wedding photography packages here.

Client love!

Jess & Phil

“OMG OMG OMG !! These are absolutely beautiful!! I haven’t stopped looking at the wedding photos & showing EVERYONE at work all morning!! Thank you so much – so so lovely! Arghh I’m seriously so excited, these are honestly just stunning! Thank you so so much for everything, I couldn’t be more happy with how it went on the day & how the photos have turned out!”

Jess & Phil

Steph & Ben

“I just wanted to say THANKS again for the wedding photography. We got raving reviews when we showed them to our family and friends!! Everyone who has seen them was very impressed with the photography and have asked for your details.

My sister and sister in-law especially were really really impressed with the style and quality. To quote my sis these are the types of photos that win awards!”

Steph & Ben

Coralie & Giuseppe

“I just want to say everyone at our wedding loved you – including us! The feedback from our wedding guests has been fantastic and everyone was like “WHO IS THAT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER he is AWESOME!” hahahaha! Your fun loving energy rubs off on others. You have a way of just putting a smile on everyone’s face. I don’t know what I would have done without you on the day, you honestly made me get through it all and I can’t thank you enough for everything you did. You honestly did go above and beyond what I expected. Thank you!”

Coralie & Giuseppe

Lindsey & Matt

“We can’t remember how or where we found you – but thank God we did. You are very professional yet down to earth, fun and most of all made us relaxed on our Wedding Day. We had so much fun with you. Thank you for our stunning wedding photography, everyone we have shown have been blown away with how amazing they look. Mark… thank you for our highlight video clip too, it is incredibly well edited. Thanks again so much, we will be highly recommending you to anyone and everyone!!”

Lindsey & Matt

Lauren & Andy

“We just can not thank you enough for our wedding photography. They are just so stunning. We had our wedding at a venue that other photographers said was ‘hard work’ as far as lighting went but wow, you used all the lighting to your advantage.

We will look back at our wedding album for the rest of our lives and have our hearts filled with the warmest love & brightest memories. Thank you for being part of our day, we laughed together the whole time. You are truly fabulous!”

Lauren & Andy

Bec & Paul

“A MASSIVE thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so wonderful! From your communication and diligence leading up to the wedding, to your humour and patience on our special day. We had so many comments from family and friends saying what a nice guy you were, and that was before they even saw the photos, which are stunning! Even your guidance for Paul and I on the day was a relief at times when we felt a little lost; you were more like a wedding planner/coordinator/amazing wedding photographer and we can’t thank you enough.”

Bec & Paul

Hannah & Yusuf

“I just want to say how happy Yusuf and I were with your wedding photography on Sunday. Everyone mentioned how professional you were, and you made us feel so comfortable, we raved about how great you were – by far the best thing about the day.

We couldn’t have been happier!! Thank you so much! If you ever need anyone to say something nice about you and your work, myself and Yusuf will both give you the best reference!”

Hannah & Yusuf

Claire & James

“I cannot tell you how many times I have watched the slideshow!! Thank you so much for contributing to making our day run so smoothly! It truly was ‘the best day ever!’

There are so many favourites! Far too difficult for us to decide on wedding photography you took for our album! They are all so incredibly AWESOME! Thank you so much”
