Hello, I’m Melissa Maloo!

I’m a Scottish girl who likes Scottish things (apart from football and battered Mars Bars).

I love nature: sunshine, summer and the seaside are my favourites. That’s reflected in my photography – I’m all about natural images and real moments. I don’t just love this style for its look and feel: I love it for the kinds of clients it attracts. They’re always fun, down to earth people, who don’t necessarily want to pose and fuss; they’re more interested in capturing the energy and the spirit of the day, and all the love that’s floating around! I love hanging out just chilling and having fun with my pals and I think this in reflected in the kind of photographs I take.

I love this picture of me and my hubby. Although clearly I know the photograph’s being taken, I’m relaxed and having fun. I look at it, and I see happiness. When you look at the photos of your wedding day, you should feel the same way.

I’m a laugher and a hugger and  I think my personality helps to put everyone at ease at a wedding. I’m not an old-school shouty photographer – and if you’re reading this, I don’t think that’s the kind of person you’d want for your wedding! I love what I do, and it shows. This isn’t just a job for me; it’s a passion. I’m proud of my work, but I like to have fun with it too. It’s better for everyone that way.

So that’s a quick take on my philosophy, my style, and me – plus the kinds of people I’ve always worked best with. If you’re reading this and thinking “that’s me!”, just drop me a message and we can have a chat. Or if you’re local to Notts, let’s go for a cuppa!
