Melinda Hird is a professional photographer based in Stanhope Gardens, New South Wales
Hi, I'm Melinda Hird and the whole reason I got into photography was because it's who I am, it's the one thing I'm really good at and enjoy the most in life ;)
I can go on about who I am, and poetically describe my work, but I won't. It's a matter of personal opinion if you like a photographers work or not, so please have a look through some photos here (but theres more to look at on my website/blog) and if you like the style and what you see, than great! I hope that I can give you some similar results too one day.
In short, I'm an experienced photographer who specialises in weddings and newborns. My style of shooting is mixed with fun and candidness, with attention to detail and emotion.
I'm a fun loving, down to earth, people person. Because of this reason, I much prefer we meet in person, so that we can get to know one another better and go over the finer details of your wedding or special occasion. For if you are going to bring a photographer into the most important parts of your life, you have to connect and most importantly like them!
All I want to be able to do for you is to deliver you some of the most beautiful and memorable photographs. Be it for your wedding, trash the dress, newborn photos, engagements, christening or any other milestones in your life. Nothing makes me happier, than to be able to give prints to my clients and see how happy it's made them feel. Only then do I know my job is done right.
What can you expect?
Choosing a wedding photographer is a huge responsibility for you! It's such a difficult decision to make with all the options out there! You want to make sure you've chosen the right person or team, who you can connect with, but most importantly, who is professional enough to tackle all sorts of situations that a wedding day brings such as: a photographer who can work under pressure and tight time frames with the ability to work in all kinds of weather; one who makes sure things run smoothly on track; who'll understanding your needs and wants; and for, one who'll be there to give you some direction in photos when on location so you are looking your best in every photo, plus so much more. I can confidently provide you with this.
I also shoot with my husband who is my savvy second shooter, so not only do you get a great team who is responsive and reliable, you will always get 2 sides, 2 angles to tell the story of your day perfectly. Between us, we shoot with 4 cameras on as at all times, obviously with different lenses, each specifically to give you amazing and different results. Together, we work hard, non-stop, capturing images for you that you might not have noticed on the day. We do shoot candidly, but we also offer you direction on how to stand properly or if we see something that won't look right in a photo we have the skill and eye to let you know, so that you're getting the best results possible.
We have back ups of equipment and gear, memory cards, flashes, batteries and we lug along reflectors and of course video light to give you some magnificent night time photography.
Feel free to contact me and have a chat and it would be great to meet with you if possible, as well as hopefully be your photographer to give you some beautiful photographs too. View More...

Testimonials Submitted by the photographer
My husband & I have hired Melinda Hird several times over the past few years, to capture special moments including a pre-wedding shoot, our wedding day, newborn photo shoots of our 2 children and a family shoot. On each of these occasions we have found Melinda to be friendly, a lovely person to work with and is truly passionate about her photography. She goes the extra mile to ensure the photos turn out of the highest standard. We have been so happy with the end results of our photo sessions and would recommend her to anyone wanting great quality prints.

My husband & I have had the incredible fortune of having Melinda take our wedding photos back in 2007, our pregnancy shoot in 2010 & our newborn / family photos at the start of 2011. I’m not an overly confident photo model infact quite the opposite however, Mel has a way of making you feel so relaxed infront ofÂ the camera, for many of our shoots I didn’t even notice her taking the photos till I saw them in print!
Mel is so artistically blessed but even more important she manages to capture feeling in her photos, in a split second I’m taken back to the most special moments in our life, we couldn’t be happier!
We can’t thank you enough for all that you have given our family, we will cherish our photos forever as I’m sure our children will as they grow.
