Australian Intimate Wedding Elopement Photographer

Hi, I'm Mel.

I'm the kind of human who will encourage you to go hard after what you want and be unapologetic about your decisions, and I wholeheartedly mean your wedding day.

I have a 'take no crap, with the biggest heart' kind of approach to my experience with couples. I want you to fully trust my expertise, and I also want you be able to encourage you to also 'take no crap' and have the wedding day you want, not the wedding day you are 'supposed to have' according to all those people you are listening too.

I'm careful about the details, but I'll also take a fireball shot with you if you ask me too. I like to think of myself as a perfect balance between 'organised' and 'lets do something insane' and I think we might get along just great.

I know it can be overwhelming trying to find someone to photograph your day, whilst also being cool to vibe out with. That's why I love to hop on a call with you guys!

I care about us having a human connection so I can really tell your elopement day in a way that is unique to you.


Love letters from previous couples..

Mel is so professional and truly passionate about her craft.. she is very detailed and gave us a lot of advice prior to the wedding to ensure the day ran smoothly. We chose her because not only does she capture people well, but also her photography has a big nature/outdoor/destination focus which was really important to us when choosing our wedding photographer. Mel has calming presence and the whole bridal party really loved her company and we all had such a fun and memorable day together. Meeting her felt like meeting an old friend- super comfortable. Highly recommend.

"Mel is an outstanding photographer, as friendly as she is professional. We chose a rather unconventional spot for our elopement and had to face some last-minute changes on schedule due to unfavourable weather conditions; she remained enthusiastic and supportive throughout it all and you can tell she loves what she does. Thanks to her fun and informal approach we all but forgot we were being photographed, which makes the shots that much more natural and special, and I know that years from now we will still be looking at them with a warm smile of gratitude. Highly recommended."

There don’t seem enough words to describe what an incredible photographer Mel is! We found each other by fate - our original photographer had to cancel and Mel was one of the available recommendations – I will be forever grateful that we crossed paths! Mel goes above and beyond and is so dedicated to making sure that her couples have a great day. Mel has so many helpful suggestions, wise advice and shares all of this via regular catch ups - this means you really get to know her and you are not meeting a stranger on the day. In addition to all of this she takes the most amazing photos, our full gallery came through so quickly and we spent hours reliving all the special moments. We were delighted to have Mel photograph our day and hope to stay in touch and have her photograph other special life events in the future.
