"I had been followed Melle’s photography page on Facebook for a couple of years with the intention of always using her
as the photographer for our wedding due to her exceptional and beautiful photos. Once we met with Melle for our engagement shoot,
she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera that I knew we had picked wisely! On the wedding day, Melle encouraged my husband
and I to be ourselves and distracted us of the fact that she was taking photos. Using techniques such as playing little word games between ourselves,
it kept us natural and not forced or posed which produced such beautiful shots that we will treasure for years to come!"

"Melle is not only one of the most talented photographers I've seen but she is also the most genuine down to earth person.
Deciding on a wedding photographer was seriously so daunting after all the images of that special day are what you have FOREVER!
So when I came across Melle I was gob-smacked by all her amazing photographs.
My partner and I decided to meet up with her for a chat and we knew then and there she had to be our photographer.
She is 100% professional but at the same time she opens herself up enough that you feel totally comfortable around her
(which is great for men since they're more uncomfortable with photographs) our wedding guests LOVED how she interacted with everyone.
We were so happy with our images that since then she's captured the precious moments with our two little boys and
also just a fun photoshoot with my husband and I for our first wedding anniversary.
Melle will always be the first person I call when I want beautiful images... I couldn't think of anyone I would recommend more!"

"I feel like a star when I look through my photos.
I can't thank, or commend Melle enough for her commitment to her work.
All of her work is the epitome of what photography should be, plus, she's got a wicked sense of humour."

"I had the happy fortune of choosing Melle as my wedding and maternity photographer.
She has a unique gift of capturing and highlighting the quintessential personalities of a couple in whatever setting of choice.
Melle made us feel completely at ease and gave just the right amount of direction and motivation to catch that perfect shot.
Thank you for some absolutely stunning photos that will be displayed and reminisced about forever."

"Beautiful photographs are what you will look back in years to come to remember your perfect day.
So don't chose an ordinary, standard photographer, choose someone with an eye for beauty,
who is professional and knows how to get your best photo, choose Melle instead.
My husband and I aren't "photo" people we both hate having our photo taken but Melle made us feel so relaxed and natural,
we just adore our wedding photos. Melle is talented, respectful, relaxed and natural and we are so happy we had her at our wedding.
She captures you as a couple, your love and your unique identity together.
It's not all cookie cutter standard wedding photos. They are beautiful pieces of art that you can look back on,
smile and remember how in love you were that day and how damn good you both looked."

It was fun and you have a great sense of humour.
I can only imagine how funny our wedding shoot will be!

"When we are asked to recommend a wedding photographer, Melle photography is our first suggestion.
Not only is her work flawless and beyond beautiful, to see her work with her couples is a treat, she puts them right at ease
and adds a little touch of humour to her sessions which is always appreciated by the guests and bridal party.
The last 6 years have been an absolute pleasure having Melle photograph some weddings at our venue."
