About Fiander Foto

Ciao Tutti ~ I'm Melanie Fiander - the face behind the lens of Fiander Foto!

When it comes to photographing weddings and events, I’m not there to merely “take photographs” but to capture precious moments and deliver a collection of carefully selected and edited photos you’ll adore and enjoy for generations to come. With over fifteen years of photographic experience, I offer a professional, fun, and unobtrusive approach to destination wedding and lifestyle photography.

I'm originally from the Washington D.C. Area (Go CAPS!) and now work and reside in Bermuda with my husband, Jim, and our three-legged cat, affectionately named Tricycle. Along with working on the beautiful island of Bermuda, I also LOVE to travel the globe to photograph weddings and events.

Shot in both the candid and traditional styles, I capture the special and unique moments, which will be looked at and enjoyed for generations to come! To help ensure that each client receives a fabulous “Fiander Foto” experience and product, I not only work as a lead photographer but I also handle the bookings, personally edit my own photos, design my clients' wedding albums and photo books, and offer consultations.

Along with photographing weddings and events, I also capture events, proposals, engagements, maternity/babymoon, live birth, newborn, family, and vacation portrait sessions too! Beyond the camera, I offer photo tours, mentorships, and am available for workshops.

I hold two Bachelor of Arts Degrees from Lynchburg University in Virginia; one in Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography and one in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing. My photojournalistic approach was learned at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine at the age of 22. After which, I earned my MFA in photography and video from Maine College of Art. Since then, I have enjoyed every moment spent behind the camera and with my clients!

My work has been featured in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Abroad, New York Weddings, PDN, The Vendor Report, Ländle Wedding's "Seasons of Yes", Whimsically Wed, Bermuda Weddings and Honeymoons, Bermudian Weddings, How He Asked by The Knot, The Gray Collective, Wedding Wire, United With Love, National Geographic, It Started With Yes, Glittery Bride, 100 Layer Cake, Lets Bee Together, The Newport Bride, and Wedding Chicks.

When I'm not photographing my "Fiander Foto Clients", you can find me under a large straw hat - milling about the garden - with my husband and our cat.

    Amazing destination photographer

    Melanie has been amazing from start to finish for our family vacation session. We traveled to Bermuda for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and I contacted Melanie for a family session. Planning the session and helping with directions and transportation on the island, Melanie guided us through all the details, and her knowledge and suggestions on location options were fantastic. As soon as we met Melanie I was so excited for our session. We had so much fun, she kept us all laughing and comfortable in front of the camera. I was so happy when I received the gallery, and how quickly we she got them back to us! The photos are amazing and I am grateful that Melanie captured these memories for my family.
    If you travel to Bermuda for vacation, please make time to schedule a session with Melanie! we can't thank her enough!

    Amazing to work with!

    Melanie was absolutely amazing to work with from the start to finish. Picking the right photographer was extremely important to us and I am forever grateful Melanie was referred to us. Her attention to detail and creativeness are unmatched. She is so personable and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Our pictures came out phenomenal and we will cherish them forever! Soooo happy we went with Melanie for our wedding photos!!

    Hello there, Cassandra - Thank you so much for your amazing review; it really means a lot! I'm excited to hear that you two loved your photographs and enjoyed working with me on your wedding day. I'm also happy to hear that you both felt comfortable in front of my camera. That is something I try to strive for as a wedding photographer; creating a strong photograph starts with the couple feeling comfortable and more importantly - having fun. We certainly had some fun at your wedding; thanks so much to you and Steve for being such amazing clients! Hope to see you both soon! Cheers, - Melanie
