Photographed by Melli & Shayne


This was a wedding that we were both actually quite nervous about. Not that we felt unprepared or ill-equipped or anything; it was one of the first times we were going to be shooting a wedding styled by a stylist that we really admired. It was going to be the first time we met in person and, then, try and capture the wedding & her work justifiably.

As the day started and we were beginning to get the details set up for their shots, we met the stylist and had a great conversation and first impression. We started to play with a few layouts for the stationary and she suggested bringing in a bit of ribbon to “tie it all together”. We LOVED the idea and were pretty stoked with how it came out.

Ever since then, we’ve given a lot more thought to the detail shots from the wedding and we try and find ways to make the overall compositions balance and feel “complete”.

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.
