a bit about us
shooting since 2014
totally dog people
Ever since we met in Zanzibar (2012), we both had this incredibly strong connection to one another. A harmonious one. This very connection that helps us work so well together on weddings, and has given us a life of travel, adventure & good wine. We’ve spent a year living in Finland, we’ve travelled to almost all the continents and we are parents to not only an amazing little boy, but to our first child (the doggo) Gaia.
We always enjoy a good laugh, a few glasses of vino and a campfire under the stars and could sit and talk for ages about life, movies, travel & adventures.
Melli is all about experiences; whether that’s traveling to exotic new places or exploring cuisine. Coming from a small German town, the world quickly became her playground as her desire for travel grew with each year she aged. Her life has brought her around the world, and most notably a good few years in Finland. Melli always had an eye for photography and over time it became a deep passion of hers.
Melli is an incredibly kind, warm-hearted and wonderful-to-be-around person that not only will make sure that everything is under control but will keep smiles on people’s faces while that happens.
Born in South Africa and raised in Mauritius island, it’s no secret that Shayne is all about the ocean, the chilled vibes and the good times. He spent 3 years in Zanzibar where he worked as a few things (hostel manager, wakeboarding instructor, PADI divemaster to name a few…) all while improving & passionately growing his photography & filmmaking skills.
Shayne also makes it no secret that he is, in fact, a geek. He loves all things tech, computers & video games and will easily spend the night talking about aviation if that happens to be up your street too.
you can never really fail. you only succeed and/or learn.
Basically, when you hire any vendor for your wedding day, you are inviting strangers to be a part of such an intimate moment in your lives. We want to break that “stranger” part and show you a bit about who we are as people, and not just professionals. In the end, we want you to feel as comfortable around us as if we had grown up together. That’s when we can connect. That’s when we’re at our greatest; and that’s how we capture these unforgettable moments for you.
