  • Melissa Evans is a professional photographer based in Cedar Vale, Queensland

    Let me tell you a little about what makes me, me! I am a country girl at heart, growing up in Mount Isa, Queensland, with a childhood that most could ever dream of. Long days getting educated, weekends either spent at one of several properties that my dad did mechanical work for or on a motorbike following dad through some magical countryside is where I learnt about hard work, goodhearted people, and the hidden beauties of the bush.

    I am now based in a semi-rural suburb call Cedar Vale, 60klm south west of Brisbane and 60klm north west of the Gold Coast. Just around the corner is the breath-taking Mt Tamborine and just over an hour away is Warwick. My home that I share with my gorgeous husband Adrian and our two fur children, Nash and Slate who are Australian Cattle Dogs is a gateway to endless photography opportunities.

    By day, I am a Safety Advisor for a global company which sees me in corporate offices through to walking factory floors ensuring workers are safe and following procedures to assisting injured workers in rehabilitation to travelling through Australia and New Zealand auditing and educating. When the work day is done, I return home and get to spend time with the fur children, preparing a homemade meal to sitting in front of the home computer editing photos.

    My days are full of change, adventure and stories and I would not have it any other way. My childhood and life experiences has helped to shape who I am as an artist; the style and inspiration within my photographs stems from my love of dusty sunsets, rainy wet seasons, and an unwavering love for animals and natural beauty. I don't like the stiff, boring or awkward poses, I prefer the laughter, the imperfections and the fun. Be you and you will have photographs to love for a lifetime.

    Photography to me is about the passion that I get from capturing other peoples memories. I love photographing love. Landscapes, animals, families, couples, newborns, weddings, maternity and it all stems from love.

    My style is a little bit of a mix of everything, giving a little direction where it is needed, to make sure you feel comfortable and then being able to step back and document the time exactly as it unfolds, capturing real, raw emotions in the warm, rich colours of life. If you think my passion and country heart sounds like you - then I would love to be a part of your story and cannot wait to hear from you! View More...

    My little family has used Melissa on several Occassions to capture memories we will cherish forever. Every time we have used Melissa we've not only come out with great photos but memories of a great day! Melissa manages to make every shoot full of fun to the point the kids had even forgotten they were being photographed! I find Melissa to be very relaxed in allowing us the freedom to express ourselves as individuals in the photo shoots. Melissa's patience with animals also was a big stand out to me - she understood they were part of the family and was gracious when it took a little while to get them to co operate :) We will always use Melissa in the future! If you are looking for not only great photos but a photographer with a personal touch and a heart of gold...look no further- you've found your girl!

    I had Melissa come and photograph my little family of three! I found Melissa to be promt, highly organised and very efficient. Melissa had a lovely demeanour with me and my two children and made the whole photo shoot fun! Melissa allowed the children to be themselves and express their individuality and she managed to capture that beautifully. I found Melissa to be extremely patient as our shoot involved animals as well and she understood the importance of animals to our family and I loved that about her! I would recommend Melissa to anyone wanting a professional photographer with a personal touch.. Melissa will be used by us in the future for any specialities we want captured!

    Melissa was amazing! She went above and beyond to make sure my photos came out great, even holding an umbrella for me while lugging around her camera equipment! Melissa got some great shots, both candid as well as posed and made sure she got all the shots I wanted! All in all a great photographer and would happily recommend her to anyone!

    AMAZING!!! Does not even come close to Melissa Evan's Photography. Her personality gives you an Inspiration that makes a shy person want to be seen in front of a lense. My Husband and I are very shy in front of a Camera, though on our Wedding day Melissa Made us both feel like we were the only two in the universe. Everything felt natural and feel into place. We were given a beautiful opportunity that we thought we would never be able to see on our Wedding day. Melissa made this happen and we are extremely grateful from the bottom of our hearts. We will be seeking more of Melissa's hard work in the future.

    A huge thank you to Melissa of Melissa Evans Photography for capturing mine and my husbands special day back on the 15th October 2016. Words can't explain how happy and over the moon we are with the photos. The day went extremely fast, Mel did an exceptional job capturing all our intimate moments. Mel was very professional from time leading up to our wedding and throughout the day. I can't thank you enough Melissa and we will be forever grateful. You're an extraordinary women, photographer and now friend. Thank you again x

    Melissa is a fabulous photographer who captured our wedding day that truly showed our personality. She also didn't make it feel like a a chore to take all the photos she makes it fun and light and the time flies while she captures amazing shoots. Would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a talented, friendly and professional photographer for any occasion.
