About Me

I’m Melissa a young, hardworking, coffee drinking photographer from the South Coast of England. I grew up in Waltham Chase which is a very small little village with my parents and 2 older brothers!
I am now living in Hedge End with Alex, my boyfriend/guidance counsellor/support system. He’s super supportive and knowledgeable being that he’s self-employed too!

When I’m not behind the lens or sitting at my computer editing, I enjoy catching up on anything on Netflix, girly nights out drinking Gin with my favourite ladies and quiet nights on the sofa with a Chinese and my other favourite person (the bearded boyfriend).

I have studied Photography since school where I first picked up a SLR film camera in an after school club. I instantly fell in love with the whole process of photography – I spent hours taking pictures of everything in my parents’ garden, really practising focusing and learning the technical aspects that went into creating the perfectly exposed image. I then couldn’t wait to get back to school to use the darkroom and see what I had (or hadn’t) created! My parents then brought me my first ever DSLR, a Canon 450D which I loved and used all the time – I haven’t looked back since!

I studied Photography at both College and University and have since set up Melissa Megan Photography. It’s been a whirlwind for sure, and a brilliant one at that. I’m so grateful that I can do something I genuinely love as a career.

Portfolios of some of my work can be seen from the menu above. Please do follow me on social media too to see what I get up to!
