MEET MELLE

A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows that she has none. Marilyn Monroe

Melle Veronesi is a wedding photographer from the Northern Rivers, close to centres such as beautiful Byron Bay, Lismore and Ballina.

She grew up in a small beach side town on the mid north coast of New South Wales near South West Rocks, 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, their crazy Labrador x Cattle Dog (Marley) 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, trying not to kill her plants. 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, Brisbane and Sydney to be the perfect places to have such a career.

A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
