Melissa photographed my sons wedding and did the most AMAZING images. Her professionalism throughout the day was incredible and when things got crazy she was cool headed and calmly organised my crazy family. I can’t recommend her enough!
I can’t speak high enough of Melissa her zest for her photos is second to none. We asked her to be our photographer for our wedding in 2011. 90% of our photos were never posed and really tell the fairy-tale story of our wedding day. I would hire her again in a heart beat.
Wow wow wow!!!!! I’ve only seen a sneak peak of the photos from the wedding day so far but am blown away! Melissa is nothing but professional, super easy to work with if you’re uncomfortable in front of the camera, and definitely has a gift. Thank you so much Melissa for everything you have done to capture our day. I can’t recommend you highly enough!
Melissa was amazing and she captured such precious, candid memories of our family. We had a beautifully relaxed shoot at our property and Melissa made the experience fun and memorable…not to mention bringing a tear to my eye at our photo viewing, Can’t wait for our next follow-up session to capture more memories of our beauties as they grow!
Where to begin! I seen Melissa and her stall at the wedding fair in Canberra and i had to have her! She shot our engagement photos and then a year later our wedding photos. The quality and quantity of the photos are beyond amazing and the presentation is just absolutely beautiful!! The love and time Melissa puts into her job shows in all aspects and she ensures you are well looked after! I can’t wait to have her shoot our family photos in the future! She is truly the best there is and we can’t thank her enough!
Such a great day beautiful, photos our photos are great, you really are A Shot Above the Rest!

Mel has been our photographer since our wedding in 2014 and we cannot praise her work highly enough! Not only is she a lovely person (which makes having your photo taken way more fun) she captures incredible moments in time that we will cherish forever. If I could give 10 stars I would.
What a fabulous experience my young family had with A Shot Above the Rest, photos were amazing, Melissa was fantastic and an overall brilliant experience!
Melissa was amazing! She was so fun to work with at our wedding and captured the most amazing moments. She made our whole bridal party feel so comfortable and we had so much fun during our photos even though it was raining. I adore our weeding photos. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer.
Wedding planning can be stressful, yet from our first meeting with Mel, my husband and I immediately felt comfortable in her company and were extremely impressed with the breadth of her portfolio. Thankfully she was available for our wedding in December 2016 and we had an absolute blast with her our our special day. Mel made us all feel at ease, she gave us a good laugh, managed to capture every single moment and went above and beyond to ensure that we have an amazing array of photos to look back on and treasure forever. We would highly recommend Mel for your special occasions, she is personable, professional, has the ability to make you relax even during stressful moments and has a taken for capturing unique shots!!

We were so thankful to Melissa for capturing our big day! Melissa was amazing to deal with and made organising a breeze. In spite of unpredictable weather and wedding day nerves, Melissa did and incredible job and was a positive and calming presence which allowed us all to relax. Thanks to Melissa’s talent and creativity we have amazing images that we will treasure for ever.
Thank you Melissa for such Beautiful pictures of Isaac, Melissa did an amazing photo shoot of Isaac for his 6mth old session. I’m looking forward to his next milestone photoshoot.
After searching high and low for the *perfect photographer* for our big day, we found Melissa. Her images are beautiful, natural and grab the special moments. She was truly a joy to have on the day, she provided support to both of us and took charge when she needed to. The photos look great, exactly what we wanted and captured the pure happiness of our day. Melissa also did a one hour engagement session with us, again the photos are stunning, casual, relaxed and beautiful.
Oh my gosh, what amazing photos! They are beautiful, we both love them and can’t wait to see the rest of them when we get home. We have had an amazing few days, Saturday was so special and we wouldn’t change a thing, was perfect! Thank you so much for sharing the day with us and capturing these special moments, simply stunning and I love your creativity. You made it so easy for us on the day.
I don’t enjoy being the centre of attention or having my photo taken! However Melissa made the day very enjoyable and made myself, my grooms men, my wife and the rest of the wedding party feel very comfortable and relaxed!
When we first met Melissa she was so friendly and easy going and showed us some amazing wedding photos she’d done previously. We knew from the start that we would be very happy with her work and we weren’t disappointed! We absolutely loved our engagement portraits and our wedding photography. Melissa made us feel at ease and captured our day perfectly. One year on, and our family and friends still comment on how beautiful and professional our photos looked- we couldn’t be happier!
Melissa is such a fantastic and patient photographer. With 2 young kids and 3 family photo sessions later Melissa still amazes us with the awesome shots that she captures. Can’t recommend highly enough!
Melissa has an amazing knack of putting you at ease and getting the very best natural photos of families. I love every shoot we have done with her, and as soon as we’ve finished one I’m planning the next.
Couldn’t ask for a better photographer Melissa has made it so much fun having not only my wedding photos taken but all our family photo’s as well.
Melissa did an incredible job shooting our wedding. We got all the shots we wanted plus those extra special ones we couldn’t have even thought to ask for. Melissa has an amazing eye and a great personality which put everyone at ease and made our memories of the day so precious. We would recommend her to anyone.
Melissa’s wedding photography portrays the essence and beauty of our Wedding Day, down to the finest detail capturing those moments of Love, Laughter and Joy, with Elegance, Creativity and Insight. Many thanks.
Melissa made Scott and I feel completely at ease, and you can see it in the photo’s. Everyone has commented on them, and family loved them as presents. She also designed a wall print for us that everyone loves. We will definitely be using and recommending Melissa professional and friendly photography services in the future!
