What others say about us

I had so much more confidence about myself and my figure when I walked out of there than I ever have! If you are ever given the chance to do a shoot with Mellbella, RUN to be the first on their list.

Hands down the best photographers I’ve ever worked with. They make you feel relaxed and comfortable and the quality is unbelievable.

Though I did it for him originally, I found it very entertaining for myself… she made me look and feel like a model.

Mell and Wanda were so sweet, helpful, fun, and non-judgemental!! They guided me through the entire process! It could not have went any better…and the photos turned out amazing!
