Michael from Mel Hill Photography did an amazing job with our wedding in April 2019. From the outset he was very easy to work with, understood our concepts and vision for the day clearly, and helped us plan our time and space requirements really well. His open, flexible, easy going, and creative approach to our wedding photography meant that we had some unique and stunning photos to remember the day by, and Michael’s eye for a shot and hard work throughout the day led to some truly beautiful pictures to share with family and friends.

We had both Mel and Michael as photographers at our wedding. Right from the first email, they were both friendly, professional and happy to answer all of our questions. They both have relaxed and friendly personalities which made them amazingly easy to deal with and helped everyone feel at ease on the day. During the ceremony they were unobtrusive but still got amazing shots and following the ceremony they took some great group/staged shots around the venue. We would not hesitate to recommend Mel and Michael to anyone looking for two amazing wedding photographers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us Chris! We are thrilled you are happy with everything!

Mel and Michael did an incredible job in capturing our wedding. They were very friendly to work with and made the whole entire process so easy. We could only afford to have the 4 hour package, and they did so well in making sure they captured as much as they could within that short timeframe. The photos turned out absolutely amazing and they always bring a smile to our faces. We loved how driven they are into creating the best photos – we particularly loved how determined Michael was in capturing us down at the creek no matter how tricky it was to get down there. We trusted his creative vision and they turned out to be the best photos in our collection. Highly recommend them! 😁

We were extremely lucky to have Mel and Michael shoot our special day. Both Mel and Michael are so friendly, relaxed and professional making the entire process a breeze. The way Mel and Michael accommodated our toddler was amazing. We have already received a sneak peek of the photos which are absolutely stunning and we cant wait to see the rest. We couldn't have wished for better photographers to capture all the memories of our wedding day.

Thank you to Micheal from Mel Hill photography for helping to include all our family and friends in our lockdown wedding ceremony via live-streaming. This took the stress away from us trying to workout how to do , and his multi camera angles made guest feel like they where there in person.

Thank you Michael for such brilliant live streaming ! Every important moment of the wedding was captured with such clarity and precision! The audio was brilliant and enable guests from around the world and Australia to enjoy my daughter’s special day! I loved listening and watching all the beautiful messages from our guests via the amazing virtual photo booth !

I cannot recommend Mel Hill Photography and Canberra Small Weddings enough. When we were forced to change our plans at short notice, Mel and her partner Michael stepped in and helped make it such a special day. We don't know Canberra very well and Mel picked some fabulous spots for the after-ceremony photos. We got the photos really quickly and they are beautiful. And Michael made sure our family and friends had front row seats to our ceremony via livestream. Thank you both!

Such a kind and caring couple we can’t rave about them enough! So professional! Definitely splurge and hire both Michael and Mel together. They are AMAZING!

12 Dec 2020

Mel and Michael are the DREAM TEAM! They were beautiful humans, and captured our beautiful day. I was concerned I would not like my photos from my wedding day, but when we got some samples back I cried, as I loved so many of them. They were wonderful to work with, very responsive, and genuinely care about your day and capturing your day to the best of their abilities. Highly recommend them, and would use them again in a heart beat.

Mel Hill Photography operate a very professional and well organised business. Their excellent communication made it easy to work with them; and helped us feel confident that everything would be ok. Our guests commented on how fun Michael was and the preview photos are beautiful. Michael provided excellent guidance and ideas about what we could consider for our day and developed a true partnership with us. We would recommend and use their services in a heart beat.

7 Mar 2020

Mel and Michael were absolute professionals. They made us feel relaxed and comfortable and were very engaging with our guests to ensure they got some great photos. I am certain we will have a difficult time picking out our favourite photos to compile into an album as I am sure there will be many lovely shots.

29 Nov 2019

Best photographers ever! Michael and Mel were amazing and captured our wedding day perfectly. 100% would recommend.

27 Apr 2019

Mel and Michael are so much fun to work with. They make you feel very comfortable and make sure your having fun. They even have a photo booth which was a huge hit with our guests. They are fantastic photographers.

Mel Hill Photography  

Thank you so much for your kind words Melissa! That is wonderful feedback!

10 Nov 2018

We had Michael act a a single photographer for our small daytime wedding. On the day, he was unobtrusive while still managing to get some lovely shots of the ceremony. For our photo hour, he was efficient and fun, and managed to get some wonderful shots of two people who aren't usually comfortable in front of a camera. We appreciated his flexibility and ability to tailor his service to a smaller, less traditional wedding.

Mel Hill Photography  

Thank you so much Caitlin! So pleased you were happy with everything! It was a pleasure to capture your special day!
