Hey there! Glad you stopped by, I'm Melanie and I've been a visual storyteller for over 7 years now! As a passionate West Coaster, I'm all about finding moments of beauty within the environment and wherever we can. I would classify myself as a people person because I love capturing moments for souls to keep for themselves. I love Vancouver because it's the perfect combination of being close enough to the mountains to explore the wilds, yet only a short walk away from the sweetest coffee shop to share stories with friends or meet new people. I'm constantly searching for the best pockets of light in the places that are precious to my friends and clients. There are so many beautiful locations to discover! I value respect, joy and passion for life and I would love to show you how I can capture beautiful imagery to incorporate artistry into the day to day. I'm honoured to work with amazing clients who value photography and can attest to its impact on their lives. What are the names of my packages? The environment has played a big role in my life and I want to share a little piece of that so I named all of my packages after my favourite BC trees! Proudly serving the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC Community
My approach to wedding photography is very candid, cinematic and moody. I aim to capture and tell the story of your special day through these photographs. I capture everything from the minute details to the vast experience soaked in love on your wedding day. My ears are always open to the biggest laughter, to genuine conversations and I have a knack for capturing the genuine you, without any interference. I have been photographing for 11 years. I have had the opportunity to intern with one of the most well-known wedding photographers 'Joseph Radhik' in India. From shooting small intimate weddings to massive guest lists, I have had a long experience. I am getting married myself soon and I know the importance of having a photographer that you can trust. These photographs are the ones that you will come back to in your life many times and I want these to be the most special for you. I know planning weddings can be a stressful time for the couple, so my process is very simple with you. Once you have booked me and provided me with all the information, I send across some lighting guide that helps the photographs look a lot more aesthetic and that's really it. I am always a phone call away and I want you to not stress about the photography bit of your wedding, I have you covered! :)
"It's not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters." Weddings are such beautiful occasions of love. As a photographer, it's my goal to ensure you'll have gorgeous wedding photos to look back on for the rest of your lives -- from the vows, to the kiss, to the formal photos with your family and wedding party. If you're looking for top-notch photography coverage at fantastic value, the Full Wedding Session is tailor-made for you. My camera has followed me everywhere for over nine years. My style as a photographer is to look for the little moments: when you're brimming with happy tears walking up the aisle, or bear-hugging your best friends who you haven't seen in months. With me, you can rest assured that those priceless moments won't go missed -- and you'll be able to keep reliving them long after you've said "I do."
This is your special day so let's make some memories! This Half Day Wedding Package is for those who want to capture the big moments of the day, but not necessarily the in-between, minor moments as much. You want around 300 beautifully edited images of the getting ready process, the ceremony, the reception, and an abundance of group photos of you, your family, and friends.
