Hi, I’m Melanie
I love photographing people
I‘ve loved photography since I was eight years old when my grandad gave me my first camera and taught me how to develop black and white film. But it was whilst backpacking in 2010 I really found my passion for photographing people and capturing moments. When I got back to the UK I decided to get serious about things and bought my first professional camera. Not long after I shot my first wedding, loved every single crazy minute of it and was hooked! So, that’s a little bit of background, what else can I tell you about me? Well, I’m a huge fan of music from northern soul to folk, but am still an indie kid at heart. I love a good Wes Anderson film. I like the sound of a needle dropping onto vinyl. Give me a vintage frock instead of denim…….I’m also mum to my gorgeous little people Fritz & Edith, own a scruffy Patterdale terrier called Eric and can’t walk past a charity shop without going in to hunt for “treasure” much to the other half’s despair.
I’m based in Rossendale, East Lancashire and am available to cover weddings in the North West and beyond.
And you? You’re laid back and creatively minded. You want to do your wedding your own unique way, not how people say you should. You want natural creative photographs, no cheese here thankyou very much. You want a photographer who will fit in with you and your day (and appreciate your playlist). You really care about photography and think it’s worth investing in amazing memories that you can look back at for years to come, rather than things that won’t last longer than the wedding day. You’re thinking that if we met somewhere else we’d probably become friends.
So… put your feet up and have a wander around my site to see my images, find out more about how I work and what I can do for you.
