Photographed by Melli & Shayne


Doing an after-wedding shoot has so many advantages that it’s hard to list them all out just here. Amongst them is that it takes a bit of stress out of what could be an already tight schedule wedding. It means that you could do a quick couple shoot on the day, and then go out together again a day or two after to an awesome spot and really enjoy those hours stress-free shooting together. And that’s exactly the story behind this image.

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.
