On WeddingWire since 2022

Last update: July 2023

Hey! I'm Melanie. Fine art photographer and professional wedding-goer. My photos are artistic representations of all your most intimate wedding day moments. My presence on your wedding day is both fly-on-the-wall/photojournalistic when it should be, and then directive and full of friendly energy when guidance from your photographer is appreciated.

When capturing your wedding, I will focus on:

  • Getting ready moments -- from quiet and emotional to fun and laughs
  • Your dream couple photos -- artistic, romantic, emotive
  • Your family photos -- capturing everyone most important to you
  • Candid shots -- all the moments between family and friends
  • Detail shots -- to set the scene
  • All that is significant and everything inbetween -- vows, rings, entrances, reactions, speeches, games, slow dances, and party time

I'll be carefully capturing all the family hugs of those who haven't seen in each other in a while, getting candids of all the people you've chosen to be there, and dancing with you on the dancefloor for the fun shots at the end of the night. I started and developed my wedding photography business in Toronto, and now this Newfie is headed back to the east coast. I'm always truly honoured to attend your weddings, and I promise I won't take that for granted.

Love love love Melanie! So much fun to work with!

Melanie was our Lead Photographer on the day of our wedding and she did our engagement portraits which we loved so much! We loved how she captured us and our playfulness really came out in our photos!

Melanie really knows her stuff and gives great prompts! She was so encouraging and had great energy! She was flexible and worked with our changing timeline on the day of the wedding. And we love the variety of shots we have and she really has a good eye when it came to the venue! We loved working with her and truly wish her well in her career! She is so passionate and loves LOVE as much as we do!

Thank you Melanie for everything! We will cherish our photos forever!

We highly recommend Melanie!

Melanie did an amazing job with our wedding photos and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. We have so many stunning photos that we can’t choose which ones to frame and I can’t believe that we got all that done in only 4 hours. Melanie understood exactly what we were looking for and executed to perfect on our wedding day despite delays etc. She was a pleasure to work with.

Melanie all the way!

Melanie was the photographer for our engagement session and full wedding day. We clicked so well with her right away. She made us feel very comfortable and she has a fun, light-hearted energy about her. She was someone we vibed well with, and made the day more fun, while also capturing our day beautifully. It's easy to get tired during photos, or restless, but Melanie kept us engaged and on track. You will not regret going with her for your photography needs. We miss you Melanie. Thank you for capturing our wedding day, going with the flow, and having the best time with us!
