Your very own unscripted moments.
Candid, comfortable, and full of nostalgia.

We may start out as clients, but ultimately, I know we'll become friends.
I have a passion for creating genuine connection with you from our very first conversation. Building a foundation of trust and understanding of who you are and what makes you tick ultimately leads to us creating magic together both on and off camera.

When you look back at your engagement and wedding photos, you won't just love the way they look, you're going to fall head over heels for how they feel.
They won't just be gorgeous, they're going to be absolutely incredible.

“The memories of your life are woven together by not only the really big, monumental occasions, but also, and perhaps mostly, the smallest, yet remarkable, in-between seconds.”

— Me

Whether you're newly engaged, planning your dream wedding day, or treading through the emotionally charged days of parenthood, your life deserves to be documented in a beautiful and authentic way.

I have also been incorporating more film photography into my offers, which is truly taking me back to my roots. If you're also interested in incorporating film into a wedding or session, please reach out. I would be delighted to chat with you more about it.

As someone who values transparency, I never want you to feel like you have to chase me down for pricing information. I truly believe that every wedding doesn't fit within a box, which is why I create custom proposals for each client.

Schedule a call with me so you can share your vision with me and we can figure out which packages would be the best fit for you.

"I could write a dang novel about Melissa. The most kind hearted, supportive, positive, wonderful person and I don't know that I would have gotten through our pandemic wedding planning without her. When we first met via facetime, I felt an instant connection to her warm personality, and I knew that she was the person I needed to photograph my wedding...."

"Holy cow, did Melissa f**king deliver."

"There was something in my gut that drew me to choose Melissa when my fiancé (now husband) and I were looking for a photographer for our engagement shoot. 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. Melissa is truly a gem. She is warm, witty, and has a joyous presence and fun energy which could make anyone feel completely at ease..."

"Melissa was absolutely AMAZING!! No words can truly express my gratitude for her work! From the very start of meeting her (via FaceTime) she was so sweet & informative. Throughout the whole process leading up to our wedding, she made us feel so comfortable & stress free! I’m beyond grateful for the beautiful photos she took of our wedding day & I couldn’t be happier!! I'm still blown away with our gallery! They are beyond what I could have ever expected. I’m so happy we choose her to capture our day!"
