On WeddingWire since 2022

Last update: January 2024

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.

Set up a call to chat with me here!

Excellent Wedding Photographer

Melanie Taylor Photo was our wedding photographer, and we are so happy with the results. We only received our sneak peeks, but from what we see so far, everything we wanted was captured: the winery vibe and romantic feeling.

Romantic Engagement photoshoot

Melanie took her time to make my vision come true. It was our first professional photoshoot and she communicated clearly to get the perfect shot! We felt so comfortable and a lot of fun.

After our first meeting with Melanie, we knew she was the right fit for our wedding. She made us feel at ease about everything, and even though we didn't have many details sorted out, she did not make us feel stressed or any pressure. She is professional, personable, considerate, and an extremely hard worker and we can't imagine our wedding day without her.

Genuine capture of our wedding day

Melanie was our photographer for our wedding in Halifax. She was wonderful to work with and made us feel so comfortable throughout the day. We didn’t want the typical point and shoot shots so when we looked for a more creative photographer we were excited to meet Melanie. Our full portfolio captured many intimate moments of our family and us. We have received so many wonderful comments from family and friends about our wedding photos. Thank you Melanie for capturing such lovely moments of our day!

Melanie is a true ARTIST!!

If you’re considering booking Melanie, DO IT! She is a true artist!!! She was recommended to us by a friend who had family photos taken by her, and we had the most amazing engagement shoot experience with her. We had never taken professional photos before and were totally camera shy, but you would never know it from her photos! She made us feel so comfortable and her talent is just incredible! She sent us sneak peeks and they instantly made me tear up, I can only imagine how incredible the rest of the gallery will be. She truly captured our love, I could cry just thinking about it!! Melanie completely exceeded my expectations for our photos, and if we weren’t having a destination wedding, we would have totally booked her for our wedding too!! I literally don’t have a single criticism, she’s amazing :)

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!

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!
