Hi! I’m Melissa!

based in Prince edward island, canada

It's more than just photography. It's connection, laughs, relationships, the real you & the real me.

Pleasure to meet you! I'm so glad you're here. I'm originally from Nova Scotia but moved to the beautiful island of PEI in 2017. I've been documenting weddings since 2014 (I've currently documented over 140 weddings and many more to come!) Sometimes I can't even believe this is my life!

One thing about me (that you will learn very quickly!) is that I love to have fun. You won't catch me in a serious mood very often, I am silly & goofy and laugh a lot! This is how I connect with those around me and shapes my approach to photography.

I share this Island life with my best friend and husband Jake - you'll see him second shooting with me sometimes on wedding days! We have a son named Jack, who is the sweetest most adorable little human ever. We also have two great pups named Ellie + Pepper! Our priorities are family time, traveling, nature and good food.

My passion is photography. Being a part of your legacy, documenting your life + love? Uhhh yeah this job is the absolute coolest! I love to have fun when shooting and try to make it a memorable experience rather than a chore. My goal is capturing you, the real you. No gimmicks, fake laughs or awkward poses. I want these photos to be real, and freeze those memories forever.

Kind words

"Melissa Harding is simply talented. She has a passion for photography which is evident in her work and while working with her. We have been blessed to have our engagement photos and wedding captured by Melissa. We couldn't be more happy with our photos and our experience. We will recommend her to everyone we know."

"She is an amazing photographer and human being! She had such a calming presence the day of my wedding which made me more calm. Also she is good at directing you on what photos or poses are best so you can get beautiful photos."

"Melissa did our photos for our engagment session and wedding. I cannot say enough great things about Melissa! Her skills as a photographer are exceptional, but it's her fun loving personality that really makes her shine! She had an incredible ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease when being in front of the camera."
