My name is Melanie and I am the owner of Grey Lily Photography. I am originally from a small town in Ontario and have been living in the beautiful city of Calgary for almost 8 years.
I am 40 years old and an Aquarius :) My greatest loves are my new husband, my step son and our 2 kitties. My strengths are my faith, determination and my ability to admit when I'm wrong. My weaknesses are worrying, staying in my jammies all day, and anything with cheese on it or in it. I'm also an animal rights advocate and my outspokenness has been known to get me in a bit of trouble from time to time! I think I'm a comedian most days and love to make people laugh. I'm a bit shy at first but once you get to know me, I never stop talking!
My photography business has been one of the highlights of my life thus far. I have never been more proud of what I do every day. I've never had more joy than I do when I'm behind the camera. I can honestly say; it's my best life.
My style of photography is moody, romantic and candid. I love real moments. Unposed. Natural. Full of love and emotion.
Thank you for reading a little about me. If you are currently searching for a wedding or lifestyle photographer and think we might be a good fit; I'd love to hear from you!
Thanks for exploring Sweet Bloom. Sweet Bloom is a product of my love for all things blooming.
Honestly, its a dream come true....
My love of flowers comes from admiring my father's garden as a child. I can vividly recall the vibrant colours of the tulips, violas, clematis and sweet smelling lilacs. Watching and working along side my father grew my passion for flowers. This passion is strong today, if I'm not in the studio you can find me in the garden. You can even find my garden blooms as accents in bridal bouquets...
I just love that!!
As a florist, I believe in allowing the natural beauty of each distinct bloom to tell the story of the people being highlighted. My style is influenced by the garden...fresh blooms showcased in a timeless, romantic and whimsical design.
As for me, I love being outdoors exploring, riding my mountain bike, skiing, strolling along paths and searching for babbling brooks...it's a thing! I love HOT coffee, chocolate, popcorn and I'm crazy for candy!! Outside of the studio, I cherish quality time with my family and friends.
If Sweet Bloom feels like a fit for your celebration, I would love to meet and chat blooms!
not only as industry friends, but as real life friends!
Getting a chance to build and create many styled shoots, and workshops together, we have grown to know each others strengths and to be each others support too!
Melanie was our photographer, and Tavia the florist for the event!
Tavia will be teaching our attendees to create a sweet posey bouquet that is a perfect addition to a flat lay design.
Melanie will be there to shoot everyones flat lay designs, as well as offer head shots to our attendees as well!
I can't wait for Spring to arrive...I'm ready for a spring infused day of styling!!
thank you friends
