My Philosophy


Established in 2009, Unicorn Studios is a boutique photography service & studio specialising in weddings and portraits on the NSW South Coast. The studio is managed by Melanie Russell, an award winning photojournalist who embraced wedding photography after a decade as an editorial photographer for some of the worlds leading magazines and newspapers.
Having photographed major celebrities, musicians, events and everything in between Melanie understands how to handle any location, any weather, and any subject matter. Melanie is also a member of the photojournalist collective fotostrada.com, a highly regarded photographic collective of numerous award-winning photographers who tell global stories through pictures…

“My approach is to tell the story as it unfolds. Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… I want your story to be remembered and treasured.”
