‘Hi Mel, I just had to write and say a huge huge thank you…I am still totally gobsmacked, never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that the photos would make me look as I did, I feel so emotional, but in a good way… Omg, I’m sat here crying and smiling all at the same time, they are incredible….I’m still totally shocked….thank you so much. There are a couple, well more than a couple, that I just totally love and I can’t wait to see them in print…. Your work is amazing, you have worked miracles’ – Donna, Boudoir Photoshoot 2015

‘I had a lovely experience with Mel from One Life Studio doing a family bluebells photo shoot in the woods. She made the experience magical telling us the history of the woods and the fairies if you do this photo shoot do ask her it’s so sweet what the villagers did. She made everything very swift and fun, our little one enjoyed himself thoroughly stomping about in the woods and the lovely studio she has with a lot of toys which he loved!Very happy with all the photos too the only thing I would say is I wanted them all!! Beautifully captured moments which I will treasure forever, I will 100% be returning to you Mel thank you so much and see you soon!’ – Hannah, Family Portrait Sitting 2015

‘Melanie has covered important events for the School of Management at Royal Holloway, University of London, over the last few months. She has been a pleasure to work with – accommodating requests, non intrusive and most importantly, has provided us with great photographs capturing the essence of these events. We are already in discussion about our next booking !’ Lesley Brown

‘I found Melanie through a Google web search of photographers local to Reading in Berkshire and decided to choose her (instead of the many others who emailed back) because she responded very promptly and was prepared to be completely adaptable to our needs for our medical dinner, where around 60 guests were to be photographed. She was also very kind about negotiating her fees and even contributed to the Medical charity we were raising funds for. When the actual evening arrived, a sudden change in the weather meant that a totally different approach was required, but if this worried Melanie she didn’t let us know at all, but just adapted to the new situation with cheerful professionalism. All our guests at the Dinner commented on how nice the photographer was and we have had many positive comments about the photographs themselves. will not need to Google for a photographer again!’ Jane Frances Patel

You really understood what we wanted and were incredibly understanding and accommodating. Numerous people have said how great you were and how well you worked with the people around you.’

‘Once again, we would really like to thank for everything you did for us yesterday. Everything went so smoothly, without at anytime us feeling rushed or that the photos were taking over the day….you managed to make us feel so comfortable and we really enjoyed having our photos taken!!! we felt like superstars!!!!’

‘We couldn’t have chosen a better…‎‎We looked at a few photographers before choosing’ One Life Studio previously ‘Mun Lai Photography for our wedding day but Melanie was, by far, the most friendly and at the same time very professional. From our first meeting she put us both at ease and took into account exactly what we wanted from our wedding album. My husband completely dislikes having his photo taken but she made him feel comfortable and confident and the album is a perfect memory of the day! I would recommend Melanie to anyone that needs a photographer :o)!’ Andrea-Elizabeth – 5 Aug 2010
