I live for telling your moments as they really are.
After many years of photographing intimate affairs, it's given me the appreciation for each couples individual stories that make them unique.
I notice so many couples reflect on their wedding day wishing they had spent more time focused on the person they were marrying. So, I take the time to get to know my couples, so I can inspire an intimate experience that encourages real moments and lifelong images.
It's knowing that when I understand what makes you tick, what makes you love, and what makes you laugh, your photos will come so comfortably.

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."
- Eugenio & Zoe
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.
