About

BellaDiva Photography by Melissa Coetzee specializes in Custom Wedding Packages, Engagements, Family Portraits and Events. Several of my Weddings and Engagement sessions have been featured by sites such as Rock the Aisle, Fly Away Bride, Wedding Atlas and Urban Style The Wedding Network.

My passion for photography began as a teenager growing up in South Africa documenting my life and the lives of those around me. All my friends would rely on me to take photos of our parties and vacations and would ask me for the negatives to order copies for themselves. Not much has changed ! I love meeting new clients and having strangers become friends while capturing images of their romance, family or kids that will bring joy and create memories that’ll last forever. I think better images are created when people are comfortable, relaxed and having a good time, so I try to foster this environment during my sessions. By the end of our time together, I hope you’ve had as much fun as I have !

Wedding packages start at $950. 10% Military Discount available on all packages.

Melissa at Belladiva photography was referred to us by our friends with a beach wedding. We saw her that day in action and we knew we wanted to hire her. Working with her was an absolute pleasure; she’s funny and creative – not your typical photographer.
We scheduled Belladiva photography her for two sessions; one before the wedding for couple’s pictures at two different locations, Balboa Park and Coronado Beach. The other session for the wedding day, this included the religious ceremony, happy hour, and reception at the church and hall. Melissa was able to capture all the emotions of both days on all three locations. We cannot praise her work enough. We would recommend her to all our friends. Melissa got our photos done punctually, expeditiously, and professionally.

We are completely amazed at the quality of Melissa's work. We are a nonprofit that works with homeless families. We hired Melissa to take portraits and candids of families in our program for use in our annual report. The results were stunning, emotional and impactful. We will definitely hire her again for future projects. Her work is outstanding and we highly recommend her.

It is a pleasure to work with you and we look forward to your return. We were just speaking about Amanda & Sergio's wedding and the fact that she was a former Miss Escondido.
