Melia received her fine art education in her native Canada, earning her BFA in 2002, and began her photography career focused on weddings that same year, later earning her MA in 2009. Her work has a wide stylistic range, from rich and moody to at times light and minimal. Melia's weddings are largely documentary in approach but rounded out with beautiful portraiture, always inspired by the uniqueness of her clients. All post production is carefully handled in-studio. Melia is based on Maui's north shore with her two little boys and is happy to serve all of the Hawaiian islands and beyond.
