California Luxury Wedding Photographer


In the blink of an eye connections are made and stories are crafted.

Your memories are woven together not only by the monumental occasions, but also by the small, ordinary moments that make this life worthwhile. The candid photo of your partner's smile is just as important, and just as meaningful, as the family portraits you plan to pass down through generations. Together, they are a timeless reminder of this unique chapter of your life. A reminder of your love.

Don't miss a single second.

It’s an honor to be a part of your story.

With me, you're getting someone who will know all of your bridesmaids' names as well as your sweet grandparents. Someone who’s in your ear reminding you what this day is all about, doing breathing exercises with you before you walk down the aisle, and always down to shake it on the dance floor with you.

When you get your gallery back, you’ll wonder how every moment was documented so authentically. How your essence and vision was captured. And the secret isn't in the photography techniques — it's in the fact that I get to be by your side through this wildly wonderful day.

Meet your photographer, confidant, and friend—Melissa. 

California and Destination WEDDING & ENGAGEMENT Photographer

As seen in

"Melissa created a space where we felt like we were in our own world."

"…There was something in my gut that drew me to choose Melissa. We knew she was special after reading her reviews and seeing her past work, but we really had no idea how incredible she was until we met her in person. She is warm, witty, and has a joyous presence and fun energy which could make anyone feel completely at ease. We had the most incredible time during our shoot. When we got the photos back, there were many tears of happiness shed. When it came time to choose our wedding photographer, returning to Melissa was a no-brainer…"

"...We decided to write our own vows which was probably the most nerve-racking thing I’ve ever done to myself. I was terrified all day leading up to the ceremony because of this and could not relax. Not only did this girl take amazing pictures, but Melissa helped me to keep my shit together while I was in this state of panic...She kicked family out of my bridal suite when I was losing it. And when it came time for me to recite my vows and I was still freaking out, Melissa took charge to get the microphone moved away from me so I could get through them..."
