Kind Words



“I have been fortunate enough to have Melanie East photograph my children at various times over the last 8 years.  We have her images of them both at home and at work and they are a constant joy – both as beautiful pieces of art and also as timeless reminders of our growing children. Without realising this was happening,  Melanie’s images have woven themselves into the fabric of our deepest memories of our growing family.  Melanie has an enormous skill in capturing the essence of each child both individually and in a group.  I have no hesitation in recommending her very highly.”

Dr Tim Sephton, Chew Valley.


“Melanie has just delivered the most amazing portraits of our family. She has managed to bring out the best in all of us and capture each of our individual personalities. Each photo is unique, some with humour, some more serious but all beautifully captured with great creativity and originality.
The whole family will remember the photo shoot fondly for the fun and laughter it induced and the end results were truly amazing.” 

Sam and Peter Oliphant, Chew Valley


“Receiving the photographs back from our recent family shoot, I was absolutely spell-bound. Gorgeous images that truly capture the essence of my family. I would highly recommend Melanie to anyone – you won’t regret it. In fact, you will wonder why you hadn’t done it sooner!”

Kim Webb, Chew Valley


“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mel as a pro photographer. She photographed our wedding in September 2012 and from the first moment we met her, my husband and I loved not only her creative and beautiful photography, but also her wonderful personable nature and ability to put us totally at our ease. Our wedding photographs will be treasured and having Mel be a part of our wedding day was just lovely – she was like one of the girls!”

“Melanie photographed my wedding.  I knew she was the absolute best photographer around the Bristol and Bath area as she produced amazing images of my sister’s wedding, plus two of my friends’ weddings.   Working with Melanie was a great pleasure and she worked SO hard.  The photographs she produced exceeded my high expectations and were classically beautiful and very classy.  She produced the most amazing documentation of my wedding and captured so many moments that I didn’t even know existed!  The photos of me and my husband are stunning, the photos of the Church service are excellent and the images of the venue, family and friends are incredible.  I would highly recommend Melanie and her prompt and very professional service (I have very high standards!)”

“We chose Melanie to photograph our wedding after researching and meeting with a variety of wedding photographers in Bristol and Bath.  Melanie instantly filled me with confidence and her portfolio was amazing.  My husband and I booked Melanie to photograph our wedding and she exceeded our high expectations.  Everybody has commented on how beautiful our photographs are and how professional she was on the day.  Melanie documented my wedding just as I wanted.  I have since recommended her to friends who booked her for their summer wedding and my sister who has also booked her.  We are having a new addition to our family in March and I will definitely be contacting Melanie for a baby shoot.  I would recommend Melanie to any bride or family looking for a photographer to document their special occasion. Her photos are timeless”.
