Let's Get Started

The love of your life just asked for your hand in marriage. 
With a resounding "yes," you fall into his embrace in a moment of pure bliss.

You've been dreaming about this moment ever since the first time you saw 13 Going on 30. He is the Matty to your Jenna. The Anakin to your Padme. The Westley to your Buttercup.

It's time for the wedding of a lifetime to be born in your creative mind, and with that comes a lifetime of memories ready to begin.


We believe in creating images that remind you of the best moments in life.

Aside from the practical reasons, engagement sessions are fun and a great way to spend valuable time with each other, making more memories! They aren't cookie cutter shoots where there is a checklist of shots we need to get. Want a museum vibe? Let's go! Want a picnic in the park? Yes! Your session should be about your personality as a couple and showcase your love!

Memories and fun


Did you know your photographer will spend a majority of your wedding day with you? An engagement session is the perfect space of time to get to know each other, and for you to grow comfortable in front of the camera. That way, on the wedding day, you can focus on enjoying every perfect moment without feeling anxious about what to do in front of the camera!

Our Wedding day was everything we dreamed of and it wouldn't have been the same without Melissa and her assistant. The entire experience was incredible! She was the perfect balance of keeping things chill and fun, while still making sure we stayed on track with our timeline. HIGHLY recommend! "

We got our wedding photos and they are absolutely breath-taking  and stunning!



valeria & adam HODGE

Working with Melissa was probably the best decision we made. I was truly mind-blown. Melissa is all about the details and capturing the essence of that special day! Not only was she there to take photos but she was a huge support in making sure things were organized and running the way they needed to. "

Do yourself a favor and work with Melissa. It will be the best investment of your wedding day!


brandi & kyle DAUGHTRY

Her work showed the joy of the day, while having a diverse portfolio that complimented a multitude of skin tones. From helping us schedule out our day, to tips/tricks during the planning stages and just a heart full of support in every step of the way. We are so grateful to have found Melissa! "

We soon learned her talents and service go far beyond the lens!


alexis & luke MOORE

WOW. First off, from a business standpoint Melissa was worth 10x's what we paid. Her skill is unmatched, and she has an eye for shots that I could not have imagined. WORTH every penny. Extremely professional, a must book kind of service. Give her a call asap! "
