The Experience




Melissa has outdone herself again! My husband and I could not be happier with our wedding pictures. I had to admit we usually do not look natural in pictures but she has some tricks up her sleeve that allowed us to feel comfortable. She managed to show our love through the lens. She allowed us to be ourselves and captured every sweet moment!

Melissa was such a pleasure to work with! She made fiancée and I feel so comfortable and walked us through poses to make our (surprise) engagement feel so warm and authentic! I highly recommend her to capture any special event!

Melissa is not only a fantastic photographer, she’s an amazing person. She doesn’t take on a project without getting to know YOU. For Mel it’s not about the scenery, it’s about the life that’s being captured. You will not be disappointed!

Melissa has an amazing eye for photography and her editing is beautiful. I did an anniversary couple’s shoot with her and the pictures came out amazing! My S.O. isn’t fond of taking pictures, but Melissa’s prompts and guidance during the shoot helped ensure our pictures were perfect and natural-looking. I would definitely shoot with her again!

Melissa was such a kind soul and her work is amazing. I really love how my couple photos came out. My boyfriend and I rarely have our photos taken together because we can be quite camera shy but Melissa made us feel comfortable and less awkward. Her guidance was very helpful and were are both so happy with the photos. Thanks so much Melissa.

I want to hear your story. For weddings, share how you met, how they proposed, where you are tying the knot, the date you've locked in, etc. If a portrait session, feel free to share anything you want about yourself and/or family!
