Romantic, timeless,  creative imagery for the WILDLY

in love.


I love documenting all the little moments that tell your story.

On your wedding day, it’s important to me that you feel amazing, relaxed, and that you can soak up all the atmosphere and loving vibes that surround you - capturing those moments authentically and naturally. If you like what you see here, I would love to know more about your wedding or event!

Macedon Ranges Wedding Photographer Mel Panteli

Hi, I'm Mel.

I'm an Accredited Professional Photographer, and work full time in the industry.  I am super passionate about my craft. 

I have two awesome kids, and have been married to my soul mate for two decades. I'm a moon lover, a light chaser, and I've always had an obsession with the magic of photography. 

Documenting people and their stories is what I do best. 

I feel like I have the best job in the world. 

Documenting love stories & people with a creative flair is my aim for all my shoots..

I'm always seeking the light to make images that pack a punch, that are impactful and resonate emotion for my clients.

Classic elegant imagery that
will LAST the test of time




Creative, emotive wedding story telling with a cinematic vibe is my thing. Shooting one of the most important days of your life, with all the love, laughter, light, all the little and big moments.


Playful family moments, being real and connected is how we capture those beautiful candid frames. 


To Bring to the Light

"Empowering women" - a gorgeous portrait offering to celebrate the women in our lives. For women to celebrate their strength and story, and beauty at all ages and stages of life.



Every event is different, from shooting at the Stawell Gift finishing line for major sponsor Australia Post, to big corporate conferences at Etihad Stadium or Crown Palladium – we have it covered.

"Agent 86 Experiences has engaged the expertise of Mel Panteli Photography since 2016. Mel is the best event photographer I have ever worked with. From initial brief Mel is a true professional, ensuring all aspects of the event are covered.


Onsite, Mel is just a dream - she takes the best photos around and captures the 'magic' at just the right time.


I have and will continue to use Mel, even if that means flying her to another state or destination around the world.


Clients now ask for Mel as do our guests - she is truly special and a master at her art."

We are so glad we found her

"Photography was really important to us and something we chose very carefully and didn’t want to skimp out on.

Within the first conversation we had I turned to my partner and said yep this is the one and he agreed. I just knew she was the right person for the job."

Mel made us feel like royals

"If you want to feel the love wrapping you in every step of the photo session then you have to go with Mel. 

I consider myself and my partner so lucky that we had Mel capture our wedding photos"

- Zina Ch 2023

An absolute dream to work with

"We couldn’t have picked a better wedding photographer. Mel made my partner and I feel so comfortable from the moment we met.

I was just blown away by the stunning photography by Mel"
