I am a lifestyle photographer, so what does that mean?
Lifestyle photography can be interpreted in many ways; to me it is allowing moments to happen naturally then directing that moment to get the best image.
Whether on a wedding day or a family shoot, I like to keep sessions fun and relaxed. I want to get those organic moments, your real family, you as a couple, the real emotions and the love your share together. Sentimental moments that you will look back on with fondness for many years to come.
Melissa did such an amazing job with our wedding photos. From the time we first met her for the getting to know you shoot she made us feel so relaxed in front of the camera. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she is also such a lovely person to have around on your wedding day. We are pleased with how the photos turned out... they are so natural and perfectly reflect our day! Would highly recommend Melissa as a wedding photographer. Thanks so much, with love Mr and Mrs Bell 💕💕xx
Such a talented lady. My hubby hates getting his photograph taken and wasn't looking forward to it at all. Melissa put us at ease straight away and was fantastic with the kids. So relaxed. She captured so many beautiful photographs in only half an hour! Amazing! So if u ever need a photographer book Melissa. She's fab. Thank u so much Melissa xx ~ Kelly Fitzgerald

You actually made me look beautiful...both of us. ~ Toni Daly
Every photograph taken by Melissa captured our day perfectly. From the getting to know you session Melissa’s personality being so warm and friendly made us all feel so much calmer about having a camera around our daughters loved Melissa as did all our guests at our wedding .
We are amazed with Melissa’s work and she will always be someone who was a special part of our day ~ Charlotte Finlay
I highly recommend Melissa, I live in Australia so I don’t really know the area and didn’t know any photographers so picking a photographer was a bit nerve wracking. But meeting Melissa for the first time was like meeting an old friend she just fit right in with all my crazy family and friends! When we realised we didn’t have enough car space for all of us, Melissa happily carted us around and even brought us for snacks when we were feeling a bit hungry! I’ve received the photographs today and she captured my day just how I imagined, it was perfect. Thank you so much Melissa!
Melissa is absolutely brilliant - she is so easy going, professional and had answers to all my questions quickly. I think the photos are great value for money. I explained to her specific members of my family who I wanted to capture precious memories of and she did exactly that, in such a subtle thoughtful way. Not only is her photography skillful, she has an approachable friendly attitude ( and a great Instagram account, which also caught my eye). She made everyone feel comfortable and captured our day perfectly. Thank you Melissa ❤💕
Melissa what can i say such an amazing girl. She made myself and Graeme feel so relaxed on the big day and made us laugh throughout.
We have two children and she was great with them knew exactly what to do to keep them occupied. Our Album is beautiful we were both so happy we picked you.
