Oh, hello!

the little details months in the making, i love telling stories through photos & wedding films.

Hi, I'm Melanie and I'm the founder of Forward in Reverse. Since 2014, I've been privileged to be part of people's wedding days as a photographer, videographer or with the help of my trusted team, both. 

As your photographer or videographer, I aim to capture candid, natural moments that have real emotion. I'll take into consideration the perfect lighting and focus on all the details that make your special day as unique as you are. 

After getting to know each couple prior to the big day, I will blend into the background and observe as your day unfolds. When requested, I can use my creativity to facilitate moments that are important to you. Together, we can strike a balance of documentary and traditional shots to ensure you get the photos and wedding film you'll cherish and adore for years to come.

"We cannot recommend Mel enough. She is a very special and kind lady who made everyone so comfortable, my guests couldn't stop raving about you! Thank you again for everything."

"Mel was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day. Her shots are beautiful and really captured the essence of the day - including lots of things we'd missed and didn't even know had happened"


"We were blown away when we saw our photos. So many unguarded, natural and intimate moments (both of us and of our guests) captured perfectly; which was only made possible by Mel's wonderfully discreet approach. ."




In the beauty of simplicity. In understated elegance. In being true to yourself. In making each couple feel truly special. In celebrating our imperfections. In letting your hair down. In cherishing the little things - as they're often the big things when you look back. And above all, that love is love.
