Meet the team...

Meet Mel - owner, photographer, and maker of bad dad jokes.

Mel Waite | Mel Waite Photography | Wellington Photographer

Hopefully you’re reading this because you like what you’ve seen so far and want to know little bit more about the person behind the lens.

That’s me. Mel. 

I’ve been working as a professional photographer here in Wellington for 20+ years, specialising in genuine, personality-filled images that my clients tell me they’ve really enjoyed creating with me.

Hearing you’ve felt welcome and relaxed, that you’ve had fun, and knowing the final result shows you looking and feeling at your absolute, unique best – that’s the feedback I’m most proud of and what I strive to achieve with every single person.

My work has been recognised with local and international awards, and I’ll happily tell you more about them if you’d like to know. But I’d much rather chat to you about my fondness of cake, share a few terrible jokes, or debate the merits of Star Trek over Star Wars.  And find out what a world-class photography experience might look and feel like for you.

Meet Monster – aka the real boss 🐾

While Mel is clearly the master of all things photographic, you’ll find out who’s really in charge when you visit the studio. If you’re really lucky, Monster might even let you worship him with a few pats.

The below is a little overview of my studio and working with me at Mel Waite Photography ♥
