The MelRish Studio Story: Where Magic Meets Imperfection

Hey there, fellow adventurers and memory-makers! Buckle up, because we’re about to take you on a journey that started with a couple, a camera, and a whole lot of heart.

Back in 2008, when we were ready to say “I do,” the idea of professional photography was like a foreign concept to us. We were just your average duo on the hunt for a budget-friendly option. So, we went ahead and booked a photographer, thinking, “Eh, any camera will do, right?” Boy, were we in for a surprise!

As our big day arrived, an army of five unfamiliar faces showed up at my doorstep, all ready to capture the getting-ready shenanigans. Talk about an “oh-my-goodness-what’s-happening” moment! It felt like a whirlwind of instructions and poses, and I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was stuck in a very surreal dream.

Fast forward to the photo reveal, and our excitement was met with disappointment. Most of the shots were staged and posed, lacking that genuine, raw emotion we were craving. They looked polished, sure, but they were missing the soul of our story.

But isn’t life funny? Our own wedding misadventure became the catalyst for a brand new chapter. We decided to bring a breath of fresh air to the world of wedding photography, an approach that embraced the messiness of real life and celebrated genuine moments.

We started with capturing the love stories of our friends – real, unfiltered, and brimming with authenticity. And guess what? Those stories caught the eye of others. Suddenly, we were getting inquiries and bookings, and we even found ourselves jetting off to India to capture a wedding against the backdrop of the majestic Taj Mahal. Dreams really do come true!
