An amazing artist

From start to finish this was truly an amazing experience! Mel was like a friend we lost count of all the guests who commented on how amazing she was. She was able to direct the group photos without being intrusive or overbearing and throughout the day she blended in to the scene perfectly.
We're in love with the photos that Mel took of our wedding really! From her portfolio we figured we'd get something pretty cool but we're just stunned by what actually came back. I would 100% urge you to book her! Other photographers are nowhere near the same standard. Thank you Mel!!!

Exceeded Expectations

The Wanderer definitely exceeded our expectations. When I first contacted Mel she was quick to reply, informative, flexible and accommodating. The first time we met was for our engagement shoot. My husband and I were both a little bit nervous, not knowing what to expect. Mel made us feel so comfortable. We received our images just a few weeks later along with the sweetest slideshow of some favourites. The photos were stunning. They were exactly what we wanted plus more. On the wedding day, Mel was nothing short of professional, prompt and organized. She kept everything on track so we had enough time to complete all of the photos before the ceremony. Then, she captured all of the special moments during the ceremony despite the serious lack of space for them to move around. We received the images just a few days after the wedding! and they were absolutely perfect. There wasn't one photo that I wouldn't frame on my wall. My husband and I are so glad we asked The Wanderer to be part of our wedding. Would recommend her over and over again.

Mel made us feel comfortable on one of the most important days of our lives. The photos are stunning and breath taking and I am in such awe! Thank you so so much for capturing all these beautiful moments and memories. I feel like I could reach inside the photos and feel the emotion. I can't wait to share them with our family and friends!
