Leonardo Melendez Photography is a photography studio based in Northern Belize specializing in weddings and events.
Why Hire Us?
Trust and experience
We’ve photographed weddings in literally every region of Belize from massive 4 day celebrations with over 500 guests to very intimate elopements of two in the middle of the sea. Weddings have taken us to the top of ancient Mayan temples, on private islands, sailboats and hidden waterfalls. We’ve photographed Jewish, Chinese, Hindu, Mayan and Garifuna celebrations in Mexico, Honduras and extensively throughout Belize.
Care and flexibility on wedding day
Don’t be surprised if you find us photographing your unplanned pool party after 11pm. We want to be there all the way. By working with us, you’re getting a personal photographer. A photographer that understands your celebration, cares about the things you care about and still delivers photographs from a unique, creative perspective.

I have always been fascinated by the world. Growing up as a kid, there were so many things I wanted to do and be. There were times that I wanted to be a musician, a teacher and a scientist, but it wasn’t until I was a bit older that I got introduced to photography. Since then, wedding photography has engulfed my life and I think it’s because human connections, interactions, and emotions are the most fascinating things in the world. When I’m photographing I’m always looking for laughter, happiness, excitement, and everything else in between. I care about my relationships with people just as much as I care about photography and I’m very grateful for our clients who trust us to photograph a very meaningful part of their lives.
