I felt a connection with Mel

"Our first meeting I felt a connection with Mel and I am so glad that we went with her.


She captured so many beautiful moments throughout the day for us that it made it hard to choose our print and album pictures. It was really important that I got epic sunset photos, and boy did she make the light work for us"

- Susan Condon 2023
