Photographed by Melli & Shayne


When we took our couple out for their couple shoot, we had planned to bring them in their wedding car. A fancy old-timer that the Bride’s dad restored. Naturally, we asked if he could drive them and come along while we took some photos of them in the car.

We also wanted to try something a bit different, and since not all the flowers from the ceremony exit were used, we thought about bringing them with us. We went ahead with our couple shoot as per normal, and then we decided to incorporate the rest of the flower petals.

We asked the Bride’s dad if he’d be keen to toss the flower petals over the couple as we took pictures – and his face lit up! He was so stoked to be a part of it. Needless to say, we got our couple into position, asked them to go in for a gorgeous kiss, and gave the signal to the dad to toss the flowers. The results – we loved it!

“Guys, I want you to stand real close to each other. Get your bellies touching and really feel each other’s presence. Go in for the most beautiful, gentle, and slow kiss you can, and don’t stop until we stop shooting. Perfect! Okay [Dad], let’s go!”

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.
