THE INSIDE STORY

Melle Veronesi is a wedding photographer from the Northern Rivers, not far from beautiful Byron Bay.

She grew up in a small beach side town on the mid north coast of New South Wales near Kempsey, where her love of photography was born. Way before digital photography was mainstream, Melle learnt the art of photography through the film medium and shot her first weddings using only film and her trusty Nikon.

On a personal level, Melle is a lover of animals. She resides on a 160 acre farm with her husband and two children, a crazy Labrador x Cattle Dog and now a rescue horse, named Getty. You can find her enjoying daily morning walks with her dog Marley throughout her property and often pottering in her garden. When not working, Melle spends as much time with her nose in a book as she can get away with, whilst juggling family life.

She lists her creative influences as the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Wedding photography has always been Melle's first love and finds the Byron Bay region of NSW as well as the Gold Coast to be the perfect places to have such a career.
