I’m Melissa, a UK and destination wedding photographer, based in a very beautiful part of England, Northumberland. However, I love to travel and work all over the UK and beyond.
My style of photography is a mixture of fine art and documentary. It has often been described as natural, romantic and timeless. I love getting to know and making real connections with my couples, this allows me to capture them in the most honest way. I create magical images that tell the story of your day in a relaxed and discreet way.
If you want a photographer that you can trust to capture your day in an honest and natural way. To blend in seamlessly with you and your guests and to create images that capture the story of your day in an unobtrusive and professional manner, then I would love to hear from you.
I cannot recommend Melissa enough. She was so incredibly professional and thoughtful in the lead up to the wedding, she had already exceeded out expectations.
On the day, she was almost invisible! Extremely respectful of the Church and guests, until we had the posed shots, I had completely forgotten she was there! For me, this meant I could just enjoy my day, talk to guests and take everything in, without somebody telling us, do this, do that. That was exactly the kind of photography style we were looking for - documentary style, where we can look back on our photos as the day was, for us and our guests.
On our 1 month anniversary we received our photos - and they were incredible! I work on photoshoots for a living, so I had high expectations... And all I can say is she captured the essence of our day to perfection. Melissa's eye for detail is exceptional - capturing those little moments that you just can't plan for.
We also received a beautiful usb box which will make a lovely keepsake.
We opted not to get a videographer, and decided instead to go with a higher-end photographer. Melissa is definitely worth every single penny. Her eye for detail, her editing skills, her professionalism is second to none, and would book her again in a heartbeat.
Thank you Melissa for everything! X

Melissa was the most amazing photographer. She was like another bridesmaid on the day, constantly making sure I was ok whilst taking all the photographs. Our photos are beautiful. They made me cry when I first saw them and they’re exactly what we wanted to take with us from the day. It’s so important to get your wedding photography right and Melissa is one of the best photographers. If we were to book the whole day again, I would choose Melissa every time. Thank you so much.Jessie & Sam
I can honestly say, Melissa you are amazing! You are kind hearted, wonderfully lovely and the best photographer we could have wished for! I feel like I've gained a friend in you, as well as having beautiful images of our Wedding! They are all beautiful!
Melissa has been wonderful from the beginning, all those years ago when we booked her, her photographs stood out.
We booked our Wedding and a pre-Wedding shoot. I was quite nervous for our pre- Wedding shoot and Melissa made us both feel completely at ease and really relaxed. I would recommend this to any Bride-to-be, as it made us feel more comfortable on the Wedding Day and we knew what to expect.
On our Wedding Day, Melissa captured some beautiful moments and she did so without being intrusive, a gentle presence if you like. Also working really well with our videographer.
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we are so happy with our photographs! We couldn't ask for more!
