The best wedding photographer - as voted by you
WHO is the best wedding photographer on the Northern Rivers?
According to our readers, it's Melle Lanesbury-Veronesi.
We asked the question on our Facebook page last night and Melle received a landslide number of votes by this morning.
Some of her clients shared kind words about their experience with the local photographer:
"When you're still in as much love with your wedding photos years later, as the day you first seen them - you know you chose the best photographer," Kodee Corcoran said.
Nearly 4 years on and I am still so in love with all of my photos. She is not only an amazing photographer but a beautiful person as well. Can't recommend her highly enough!" Belinda McPherson said.
"Couldn't be happier with all our photos! She has a truly inspiring talent and captures precious memories in a stunning and artistic way. She has a fun and enthusiastic personality and knows how to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera," Elouise Jupe said.
"Her photos, to me, are like seeing that perfect diamond ring in the display window of a jewellery store and fixating on it!" Shae Lyons said.
"Being a Marriage Celebrant, I have worked with many photographers in the area. Two of my favourites are Melle Veronesi and David Freund. Melle is very down to earth and makes all of her couples feel relaxed and comfortable, she goes about her job and you wouldn't even know she was there during a Ceremony. David is much the same, and he also taken some awesome action shots of my kids on their motorbikes during a photo shoot. I love working with both of these photographers!" Jo Kilburn said.
In second place, voted by our readers, was Ben Wyeth, followed by Renee Mulcahy at RNC Photography.
