Photographed by Melli & Shayne


This whole year has been pretty horrible for everyone. Not just us as wedding photographers. Our couple had planned this amazing wedding with 40 of their closest friends & family (they didn’t want to have too many people because of, you know…Covid). But, a day before they received a message. One that would hurt them.

They were now only allowed to celebrate with 10 people. Maximum. One day before their wedding. We can’t imagine how hard it must have been for them, but you know what – they came out on the day full of positivity. They had an amazing, emotional day together and we were so lucky to have been a part of it.

When doing the group photos, we made sure to capture the moments between them that they would want to remember. Not only the posed shots, but the fun ones where they can look back and be reminded of that stupid joke the photographers told them.

Melli & Shayne

Photographer Germany Canon 5D Mark IV Canon 50mm f/1.2 L
We are Melli & Shayne, a couple coming from vastly different worlds but have been inseparable ever since we met in Zanzibar. We have been passionately capturing love stories since 2014 and have loved every step of the way. We love to meet fellow photographers, to share our knowledge amongst a bottle (or two) of wine and support every one wherever we can.

Everyone fails. It’s how you take it that will separate you from the rest. Failure is a lesson. And knowledge is a win.
