Photographed by Melli & Shayne

Story

When we found out that our bride was a full-fledged, certified drone pilot for a News channel, we were absolutely blown away. During our initial conversation, she mentioned how much it would mean to her if we could find a moment to photograph her in her wedding dress flying our drone. Of course, we made it happen!

Even though our couple shoot was so time-restricted and much shorter than what we would have liked; we made sure not to forget this simple but fun request; and you know what? We had an incredibly happy bride afterwards. I mean, just look at that smile! It’s the small things that count and can go a long way.

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.
