Left of The Middle Photography

Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Hunter Valley and Central Coast Wedding, Portrait & Landscape Photographer

Wedding Photography

Our style is natural, romantic, lifestyle with a twist of humour. We are not intrusive and live for real moments with you, your family and friends. Hug your babies, kiss your spouse and dance with your best friend. There are no expectations other than to show up and be exactly who you are.
All your moments are important.

Family Portraits

Family portraits don’t always have to be ‘formal’. We love seeing portraits where families hug, hold hands, be silly, or otherwise show their affection towards each other. We have lots of ideas of how to capture you feeling at ease while getting great photos.
We want to you to cherish these memories forever.

We love to create opportunities for authentic smiles & natural reactions. We are movement orientated photographers, which means we will have tons of fun. There will be dancing, jumping, twirling, spinning and so much laughing. Get ready to go on an amazing adventure with us and fall in love with your photos.

What are clients are saying:

"Let me start by saying, we just had our 1 year anniversary, we STILL gush over our personal wedding experience due, in large part, to the way in which Melissa so uniquely captured every detail.

After researching several other excellent local photographers, we could not help but keep coming back to Left Of The Middle Photography.

To this day, the only thing better than the wedding itself is the fact that we get to live it over and over again in amazing pictures! For that, we will be forever grateful."

"What could I possibly say about Melissa at Left of The Middle Photography that has never been said?!
From the beginning to the end you feel special and valued as a friend, not just as a client.
On top of that, her pictures are AMAZING.
My husband and I could not be more pleased with all of our pictures. She captured our day perfectly. She is wellllllll worth the investment – could not recommend Melissa enough!"

"My husband hates having his photo taken, and even though I knew he would do his best for my sake, I didn't want him to dread this part of our wedding - I wanted him to enjoy every minute! Finding someone who could make taking our photos not feel like pulling teeth for him, and who could capture us looking happy and comfortable together was so important to me.
Melissa was perfect. We loved how relaxed and funny she was, and how she gave just the right amount of direction and feedback. She has such an aura of calm and joy around her-- exactly the kind of person you want with you on such a busy/happy/emotional day."
