Mel is absolutely amazing. She helped us plan out our wedding day, she helped create the most amazing day and captured the most amazing photos of my now wife and I. Mel ran around all day to ensure she captured every moment of the day and then not only that, she returned the photos within days. I cannot recommend Mel/Little Studios more.

If you are on the fence about booking Mel, stop considering it and do it! She is seriously professional and if she can put my wife and I at ease throughout the day, no doubt she can help anyone!!

Mel – you are amazing and Emily and I cannot thank you enough for everything!! If we had to do it all again, we would book Mel 100 times over.

“oh my gosh! The photos look amazzzzzzingggggggg! I love love love them! the paddock ones are awesome!!!! You’ve got a real talent! So special! Absolutely loving them!!” Jody

Mel was absolutely spectacular and we would 100% recommend her to every body! In the lead up to the wedding Mel was so helpful and gave us really great advice and help in planning out our day. She was incredibly easy to communicate with and her response time was great.
Mel was amazing and such a friendly person to both Joel and I, and our guests. We had multiple guests mention how lovely she was to them, making the experience even more enjoyable. For my partner Joel and I, Mel gave us the perfect amount of direction, but was so respectful and kind throughout. Mel really worked on what Joel and I wanted for our pictures on our day and was so flexible throughout to ensure she got the pictures we wanted.
She was an absolute delight to deal with and the turn around time for photos was incredible. We were so pleased with every single picture and could not fault Mel at all. She seems to really love her work and is fantastic at what she does. A real eye for photography- she’s really found her calling.
We look forward to working with Mel in the future for other events in our lives.

It is true that a picture paints a thousand words, and it is equally true that Mel’s photos paint a thousand emotions. We wish we could put into words how grateful we are to you Mel, for so completely capturing the love and emotions on our Wedding day.

Thank you Mel, please know that we will continue to thank you every day to come for capturing more than you know with your beautiful photographs. You truly are an exceptional photographer and that no doubt comes from you being an exceptionally perceptive and intuitive lady. 

There are so many beautiful photographs we do not know how to choose for our album! We cannot recommend you and your work highly enough, we wish you every success and happiness.

Our photos for our wedding were amazing.  Mel captured the ceremony and the magic.  What I felt most grateful for was how Mel seemed to blend into the background. She helped a self conscious bride forget to be self-conscious. Instead, I got caught up in the moment, the love I felt for my husband to be, which naturally brought out my true beauty. Our photos are full of emotion and the true celebration. Yes my dress was beautiful, and every detail of the ceremony took great consideration. But the magic was captured within a kiss, a beaming smile, the well-wishings of family and friends. Mel captured the essence of what it was really all about. And now we have those moments forever…

Mel is so understanding and made me feel from our first phone call to our first meeting and spending our wedding day with us was like having a friend with us who was so happy for us on our wedding day. Mel was there while I got ready, and headed over the venue to catch perfect shots of the groom and guests. We have some amazing photos, I love them all. Mel managed to capture the perfect photos when I was not aware and they are the best ones. I recommend Mel for any bride.

We love Mel so much, in one year our family has utilised her services for two weddings!

We both met Mel as part of my sister’s bridal party for her wedding in late April, and spent the whole day engaging with her. Almost immediately after, we already contemplated asking Mel to be our photographer, because of her eye for detail and thirst for the most perfect picture/s. When the photos were out we knew we had to get a hold of her as soon as possible!

We were not disappointed, not only did she make us feel comfortable on the day, the pictures she took captured our love, happiness, playfulness and carefree attitude. She is a photographer who gets to know you, your partner and you as a couple, and thus is able to capture all the beautiful moments. We will always be able to look back on our day because of Mel’s beautiful work, and be transported back to every unforgettable moment.

Everybody loved the Booth Bus, it is amazingly different to your typical Photo Booth. Everybody loved the props, the candid photos and how it captured the cheekiness and atmosphere of the occasion.

We would recommend Mel and her Booth Bus to anyone, and you would not be disappointed.

(Mel has since also captured a third wedding for this gorgeous family)

I am so thankful for the opportunity for having such a beautiful and professional photographer (Mel from Little Studio) for our wedding on 29th October! We felt so comfortable when she was around us as we were guided to know how to achieve good pictures & postures. She is a considerate, smart lady and she follows up things promptly. Frankly, I felt sooo lucky to have Mel on our BIG day!

“Mel was brilliant! She not only did the event photography for our wedding reception but also bought the Open Style Retro Photo Booth along. Our guests had so much fun with the booth – it was a great source of entertainment! We would definitely recommend Little Studio to others looking for wedding or event photography. “

“Mel was awesome right from the beginning! She had the challenge of photographing a traditional turkish henna night (and considering she’d never attended one before) she done great! she captured all the important moments as discussed and what i truly loved more than anything was before the date she went to the effort of researching ‘henna nights’ which shows me the passion, time and effort Mel puts into her work.

I would definitely refer Mel to anyone that needed a photographer for an event for a decent price! 5 stars, so happy with the final result! Thanks again Mel for all the effort! :)”

We were extremely happy with the shots Mel took on the day. They were exactly what we were after as discussed with Mel prior to the event. Mel was easy to communicate with, answered any query we had clearly and was always quick in returning emails/phone calls.  I would highly recommend Mel as the photographer for your event, whatever it may be! I will definitely be hiring Mel again.

Simon has since hired Mel for four consequetive years in a row for his event in the music industry.

Mel and the little studio team did a fabulous job at our wedding. Young and old could not stop telling us how much fun they had in the photo booth and how helpful Mel was at getting everyone together, helping with the guestbook and providing plenty of props. Fantastic fun, fantastic photos, fantastic party starter and great for the guest book! Thank you so much for Little Studio.. everyone loved the photo booth! And thank you for getting the professional event photos together so quickly to post online with the Photobooth strips (within three days!)!

Mel, it was an absolute pleasure having you at our wedding. From the first phone call to the most recent email, you’ve been such a lovely and accommodating person! The booth was fantastic and really added something special to our wedding reception – everybody loved getting dressed up and taking some silly pictures! We really appreciate you ensuring that a copy of the pics made it into the guest book and overseeing all of that as the guests got progressively more boozy! Thanks again for everything!

Mel was absolutely fantastic to work with! We had the Photobooth & Photography package, which worked out very well for the day. Mel was great at giving direction on photos and also took additional since I tend to have my eyes closed in most photos.  We had the photos back within a few days of the wedding, unheard of for wedding photos, so we were so pleased!  They were really great shots and we’re so excited to print them for our family and friends. Additionally, the Booth was a massive hit! There was no quiet moment and we got some really great photos with our guests, such a fun addition!  Thank you Mel for capturing such sweet moments!
