Wow! What an incredible talent Mel is. She has such a beautiful nature that certainly helps to get everyone relaxed around the camera. She thought about so many shots that we hadnt thought of and some of these will now be our absolute favourites. There was no need for fake or forced smiles as it all came so naturally & we felt so comfortable around her. Dont go past Mel for photography, her photos are worth there weight in gold.

Melissa and Trent were absolutely amazing to have there to capture our day! For two people who hate to be in front of a camera (my hubby and I), they made us comfortable enough that they were able to get the real smiles from us rather than the staged "holy-crap-there's-a-camera". 10/10 highly recommend

Melissa took simply stunning photos for us. She knew how to position us to make sure the photos were right and she didn't waste time. She went above and beyond what we expected from a photographer and we couldn't be happier.
