Photographed by Melli & Shayne


One of the things we are most grateful for being wedding photographers is the fact that we get to see such incredible places, people, and moments. It’s a career we never thought we’d be into (if you asked us a good few years ago) but life has its paths, and we have absolutely no regrets.

When this couple asked us if we’d be keen to travel just north of the Arctic circle in Norway to capture their elopement, how could we resist? We got there a few days early and spent an entire day location scouting and just enjoying the whole experience of being up there. We found this spot, made sure it’d work with the light & then planned everything with our couple on the day of.

They had a beautiful, gentle, self-made ceremony just between themselves. They shared their words, shared their tears, and shared their love and this moment was the conclusive end of their little ceremony. They embraced for a moment, and right then and there – nothing else mattered but 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.
