Hi, I'm Mel!
I'll be honest, I'm chatty! I love a good natter over a cup of tea and I have always found that talking and making conversation is a great starting point to a relationship with a couple. I am your quickest and easiest best friend! Our friendship may only last from the time we first meet to the time we say goodbye but I’m an awesome friend to have!
I want to keep this pretty short and sweet for you guys. I am a mother first and foremost and if I get talking about Alice, please just tell me to shh! I'm a cat lady (recently become one). I am a big lover of modified cars! Shamefully I was one of those young girls in a car park with boy racers. I absolutely love the sea! I one day hope to own a house that over looks the ocean.
However, my previous couples will tell you I like to keep track of things on your wedding day, to offer you guidance and support whenever you need it. I'm a friendly face to have around you throughout the day and I will always jump on that dance floor with you should you want me to. Some of my closest friends have been previously clients of mine.
I am based in Cardiff and am available to shoot weddings anywhere, anytime in the UK and abroad.
I like to call myself a celebration photographer...
II don’t just photograph your wedding day, I photograph the celebration of love you and your partner share. I smile, laugh and cry along with you. Many times I have helped a bride in her wedding dress, done up a bridesmaid’s shoes, carried bags or kept important things in my car until they are needed.
I’ve been a pro photographer for nearly six years. I was shortlisted as Best Wedding Photographer in the Best of Wales Awards 2017 and I was a Finalist for Freelancer of the Year 2016 at The Regional Awards. I give you the experience I would hope to get for my wedding day. My style is a fly on the wall, I try to capture all the details I can find and more. Being five foot three does help with not being noticed and the only real time your guests see me is when I am asking for the group shots or hanging over a balcony looking down at you from above.
“Couldn’t have asked for more from Mel! She is amazing at what she does, she made everyone feel so comfortable. So happy with the finished photographs we have received! Mel also helped to keep to the timings of the day, reassured me and calmed me down when I was nervous! So much more than an amazing photographer”
