About us

Dave and Mel

“ Hi, We are Dave and Mel.  We have been happily married for 17 years and photographers for 12, operating out of our Slacks Creek studio.  We both share a passion for creative photography and together, we work to create a fun and comfortable boudoir experience for you with gorgeous photos that will compliment you and your body.

We both have different kinds of artistic flare that we bring into your session to create our style of boudoir.

During your session, you will have both of us as photographers. We believe this gives you the best of both worlds. The artistic perspective of 'what is sexy' from a male and female's point of view.  Plus it's always a good laugh when Dave demonstrates some of the poses.  You'll find that we are very down to earth people who are easy to get along with.

On a more personal level, we have 4 children who we adore and a cheeky husky puppy.  Our escape is to keep active doing karate together.  Dave also loves to get out on the basketball court and Mel has a new found love for pole fitness. Our happy place is definitely holidaying on the beach.  With or without the kids is the question though.

Now lets take this journey together and discover how fierce & beautiful you are!  "

Meet our Hair and Makeup team



Hi, I am Kendall, one of the resident Hair + Makeup Artists at Angel Eyes.

My love for makeup began when I was only four years old.  For Christmas my nana got me a play/pretend makeup vanity, and I found myself playing with it daily. Fast forward to high school - I was the geeky girl, obsessed with science and on par to become a genetic engineer (Genetics are just so fascinating to me). That was until I had a Debbie downer teacher, who kicked me out of her class for correcting her too many times. So I began searching for any kind of study that correlated with genetics. I then found that in a diploma of beauty therapy, you learn a lot about human anatomy. We also played with makeup, ALOT, which re-sparked my four year old selfs dreams.


After studying my diploma, I practiced as a beauty therapist for a few years before having my two babies. It wasn’t long before I was eager to pursue my makeup artist dreams, so I put a lot of money into going to a specialist school in Hair + Makeup, and began my journey as a full time Hair + Makeup Artist.


When I met Mel + Dave, I could instantly see the passion they have for Angel Eyes, and I knew I wanted to be apart of their team. I look forward to making you feel stunning for your shoot.


Hey!! I'm Teneal


Hair and makeup artist by day and mother to a few crazies by night. I've been doing hair and makeup since 2016 and still loving it. I'm a creative person and a little bit of a perfectionist at times, so makeup and hair is right up my alley. I love having a client sit in my chair and allow me to work my magic and enhance the beauty that's already there. This is my style as a HMUA, we don't want you looking like a completely different person. And one of the best parts is, when they look in the mirror for the first time after being all glammed up and say "oh wow, I love it". 


When I'm not glamming I'm usually playing taxi to my children, having some downtime with my family or getting outdoors on a new little adventure with them.


Can't wait to see you in the studio.
