Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Your love story starts here...

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to look through my extensive portfolio.  My name is Melissa and I am based in the North-West of England, in the beautiful town of Buxton in Derbyshire.  I have been a professional wedding photographer for the last 7 years and I travel worldwide and through out the UK photographing weddings at all different locations and venues.  I shoot weddings in a natural, relaxed and reportage approach and all my images are finished in my unique, developed signature vintage, matt style. 

When I attend your wedding, I just want to blend in, and be part of your big day like a guest.  I am not intrusive and I want it to be as natural and as light-hearted as possible.  This was I can capture those natural smile, and fun filled moments you may miss or forget!

I am a 'natural light' photographer and I aim to use where it allows me to.  However, I also bring along external lighting in low-light situations to ensure you still receive the best and clearest quality images possible.  My images display natural ambiance, capturing the feeling of your moment.

I use Canon equipment and I bring with me 2 full-frame camera bodies on the day (one main and one back-up). I use various L-Series professional lenses and external lighting as required. 

I am fully insured with public liability insurance.  I am professional and should I be booked for your wedding, I will attend your day, just like a guest, in smart attire.

Attention to detail, time and effort is put into working on your photos to make sure you are presented with images which will leave you with fantastic memories or results.  I can accommodate and tailor my packages to suit individual needs. 

You can request to be sent a portfolio presentation pack.  Or if you are a FaceBook user, you can visit my page, Melissa With Love, to see the this same example. For commercial and individual assignments, agents / models can request my printed portfolio to be presented to you so you can see the end results of my photography. 

I hope you enjoy looking through my images.
