About Me and My style – female wedding and family photographer – Lincolnshire, UK and beyond


First a little about myself, I am a ginger, passionate picture taker and mum of one from the lovely county of Lincolnshire.

I have always taken pictures and loved photography, but some years ago I borrowed my sister in laws DSLR for a holiday my little family were having in Pembrokeshire and I was hooked.

Photography has been my passion ever since and this led me to set up Mel Cowell Photography specialising in natural, documentary wedding and family photography.

My photographic style is very much about documenting your day or your family without taking over.

My approach is not about shot lists or endless groups, its about telling the story of your day. I want to capture the real spirit, fun and emotion of your day. For me photography can trigger and enhance the memories of those special times in our lives. I generally prefer to use ambient light to capture the atmosphere, emotion and the feelings of your day or family relationships

I love all wedding, however if yours totally reflects you and your uniqueness I will be even more excited to photograph your big day. So if you are having a Humanist, Pagan, rock and roll, Hindu or any other Alternative wedding please get in touch.

My favourite things in the world are my family, photography (naturally), period dramas, meeting new people, travelling, cooking and eating, socialising with friends, pre Raphaelite paintings, and walking in the sun.

I might currently have red hair (which is the artist in me) but I think it is important that I fit in with your special day so I won’t be turning up in my jeans! and will be wearing one of my best frocks!!!!!
