Let's Get Started

Your wedding day should be as special as your love. After the flowers have faded, the food is gone, and your guests have gone home, what's left are your fond memories and the opportunity to build the marriage only heard about in legends.

Take the guesswork out of looking for your photographer. If you're here, the chances are high that you are working with an amazing planner. My biggest recommendation is that you should TRUST your planner! They've been around the block (and back), and they know how to match their clients with their vendors.


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

Sometimes one just isn't enough. I have a fantastic network of photographers that I work with on a regular basis. For larger weddings, I will include as many extra photographers and assistants as needed to make sure your wedding is fully covered!

Multiple Photographers


Many cultures have wedding traditions that can last several days. I am here for it! If I have your dates available, I'm happy to cover your festivities. If I have only part of your dates available, I do have the option to cover the dates I'm unavailable with an Associate. 

Multi-Day Coverage


Full Day Coverage

My goal on your wedding day is to give you exactly what you need. Typically, I find that anything shorter than 8 hours of coverage is not enough time to capture the day properly. I'm not going to rush you through your day, nor am I going to leave you hanging at a pivotal moment in your timeline. Let's take our time and make sure all of your memories are captured.

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos.

We check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day.

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! "

Extremely professional, a must book kind of service.

next question —

Film has really been making a comeback in popularity. I actually started my photography journey in a dark room, developing my own photos, and it was a very cool experience!

However, for the last 10 years, my medium of art has been digital only. It allows me the most flexibility to be creative, and ensures the best quality I can give on a wedding day.

Do you shoot with FILM, DIGITAL, or BOTH?

next question —

I absolutely do! Working with vendors that I trust and communicate well with is extremely important. The dynamic between vendors can be a make or break situation.

If you've exhausted all the options your planner has given you and still haven't found your perfect [florist, DJ, staging co, etc], I do have my own short list of vendors that I love to work with, and I'd be happy to share!


next question —

I will go pretty much anywhere I'm accepted and safe! I am a huge fan of Europe and am happy to shoot your wedding almost anywhere there. Unfortunately, I will not be booking weddings in places that might not be safe for or open to American photographers, like Mexico, Canada, or war-torn countries. Some locations, like Canada, require strict permitting that may not be accessible.

where are you WILLING to TRAVEL?


The answer to this is no. While I use natural light as much as possible, I am well versed in "off camera flash" and often use it for creative portraits, reception dancing, or lighting dark rooms.

are you a 'NATURAL LIGHT only'  photographer?
