Photography & Videography

You want a wedding photographer & videographer who embraces your awkward feelings about pictures and your fears about where to put your hands -- someone who can release your beautiful inner butterfly. Wait, did I really just say that out loud? That sounds like something out of a cheesy rom com.

**Don't get me wrong, I love a good movie binge**

But seriously, every client I've ever worked with has said to me at some point in time, "Hey, we're really awkward and not photogenic, so we're going to need, like, A LOT of direction." I. GET. IT. And here's another shocker, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A MODEL TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL, "DAMN-I-LOOK-GOOD" WEDDING PHOTOS! You just need a wedding photographer who is kick-ass skilled and intentional about bringing out your own natural, kick-ass personalities and vibes on your wedding day. Here's the truth, lots of people can take a decent photo and call themselves a photographer. But few photographers are skilled enough to take your images to another level of artistry and connection that you'll be proud to print and share with your grandkids. That's where I come in!!

Hey! I'm Mel, a kick-ass wedding photographer from Christchurch, New Zealand. I get excited about creating connection with brides and grooms so that we can burst through the awkward moments of having their pictures taken, and tell their story honestly and beautifully. Your story is one of a kind, and deserves to be told with intention no matter what it looks like. My promise to you is to celebrate your awkwardness, to take you into a closet for a moment on your wedding day so you take a minute to relish what the freak is happening (You're getting MARRIED!!), to make sure that your wedding day story is true to you. To hype up the crowd for group photos and of course capture the wild dance floor moves.

So let's do the dang thing and see if we're the perfect fit for each other!
