It’s lovely to meet you.

Hi there! I’m Mel, a Perth Wedding Photographer and I’m so thrilled you’ve discovered me among the myriad photographers out there today.

To me, weddings are about the people we care about most, coming together to celebrate something absolutely wonderful – LOVE.

Candid images are undeniably my absolute favourite, especially those in-between moments. The images you didn’t realise were being taken are often the ones you’ll cherish most. After documenting weddings for well over a decade, I pride myself on anticipating these moments in time.

I’m so humbled you’ve come this far, and I hope we can chat further about all the plans you have for your wedding day.

More About Mel

Throughout my journey since establishing my business in 2010, I’ve had the privilege of documenting hundreds of weddings.

My passion for photography certainly ignited with film photography. Back in 2003, I delved into the art of developing my own black and white prints in the darkroom, where I honed my skills in mastering correct lighting and composition long before the era of Photoshop. This undoubtedly shaped my attention to detail in my current work.

To ensure personalized attention and quality work, I cap my wedding bookings at 20 per year, allowing ample time for my Boudoir Photography Portraits.

Having spent 30 years as a Darwin girl, I embarked on a new chapter by moving to Cairns QLD for 18 months, followed by settling in Perth in 2019.

For 13 years, I soared through the skies with Qantas, a period that significantly shaped a large part of my life. And in a twist of fate, I embraced the ultimate cliché by marrying a pilot.

Classical music holds a special place in my heart; I dedicated a decade of my life as an Oboist in the Darwin Symphony Orchestra.

In 2019, I embarked on my own journey down the aisle, marrying Brad, with whom I share the joy of raising our daughter Anna.

Exploring the world fuels my soul, and I’ve traversed through 36 countries to date! Specifically Italy, Greece, and Turkey hold a special allure, and it was through my travel photography in these regions that I earned my place as a National Award Winning Photographer – Including the Australian Institute of Professional Photography’s NT Travel Photographer of the year in 2016
