Hello! I’m a wedding & family photographer based in Melbourne, Australia.

Mavis Jean, as gorgeous a name as it is, is not in fact my real name. It’s a hommage to my late Nan, who I got to know mostly through old photographs (see below photograph). The window into the past that photography offers is a big part of why I love it. My real name is Alice and I have a filmmaking background (you can check out my film stuff here). I love photography. Like most kids, it started out with diligently documenting my cats every move. Even though I still love cats, I’ve moved on to humans over the years.

I specialise in weddings & family photography. I love to tell stories through photos. I love details, fleeting moments and big smiles. Joy is always the essence of a great photo.

Welcome to my page. Have a browse, I hope you enjoy, and don’t hesitate to drop me a line.

aka Mavis Jean
