Wedding Photography Overview:

"…You will blink and before you know it, not only will your wedding day have whizzed by, but you will be happily celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary…

Nostalgia in Greek literally means ‘the pain from an old wound‘. A twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone.

Mel Gaunson from Little Studio loves to capture those unmissable details at Weddings… the stunning bouquets, the dress, his expression as she appears at the end of aisle; however the thing she focuses on most is capturing the raw emotion surrounding the day.

Those fleetingly rare moments that would be gone forever had she not been waiting & watching for that precise time to press the shutter...

Dianna, One of Mels recent Brides wrote “It is true that a picture paints a thousand words, and it is equally true that Mel’s photos paint a thousand emotions.”

Life is a journey full of ups and downs and that twinge of pain stemming from leaving one important chapter of your life behind to start the next is lessened when you have photographs that leave you breathless with nostalgia.

Moments captured, to be treasured forever… Your memories. Your pictures. Your future.

"The Booth Bus by Little Studio was an absolutely amazing addition to our wedding. All our guests had so much fun jumping in the bus, using the props and having their photos taken. Our guests were then able to keep a copy for themselves as memories of the day and we got to keep a copy in our wedding book with messages from a guests that we can treasure forever.

The Booth Bus was such an easy supplier to organise which removed stress from what can be a stressful day.

Our package also included event photography for some of the day and Mel did an amazing job of capturing some great and memorable shots of us and our guests.

Would highly recommend the Booth Bus for anyone looking to capture fun and memorable moments from their wedding."

"Mel recently photographed a guitar performance I had for my students at
Casey Grammar in Cranbourne. I am extremely happy with the shots Mel
took on the day. They were exactly what I was after as discussed with
Mel prior to the event. Mel was easy to communicate with, answered any
query I had clearly and was always quick in returning emails/phone

I would highly recommend Mel as photographer for your event, whatever it
may be! I will definitely be hiring Mel again for my next student

"Highly recommend Little Studio for your photobooth hire. We hired a photobooth for our Bayside Community Hub Christmas party, and found the photobooth and service provided to be of a very high standard. We are excited to use the services of Little Studio for our "Christmas in July" party this year too, and would highly recommend Mel and the team to anyone needing photo booth hire! "

"Our photos for our wedding were amazing. Mel captured the handfasting ceremony and the magic. What I felt most grateful for was how Mel seemed to blend into the background. She helped a self conscious bride forget to be self-conscious. Instead, I got caught up in the moment, the love I felt for my husband to be, which naturally brought out my true beauty. Our photos are full of emotion and the true celebration. Yes my dress was beautiful, and every detail of the ceremony took great consideration. But the magic was captured within a kiss, a beaming smile, the well-wishings of family and friends. Mel captured the essence of what it was really all about. And now we have those moments forever."
