I've always loved a good story. *cue Jurassic Park theme music here* And since photographing my first wedding in 2009, I've been hooked on telling love stories. Getting to know my clients has always been a priority of mine, because I want to do everything I can to make you as comfortable as possible in front of the lens. It also allows me to document your wedding day in the most genuine way, as every couple has a different story and unique vibe to them. I like to laugh (a lot) - but the quiet moments inspire me just as much. I want to deliver a collection of photographs that will stand the test of time, and each time you look at them you're brought right back to the feeling you had on the day you got married. I'm always there to help organize and direct certain parts of your day, but what it all comes down to is just you enjoying your day. Be goofy. Be vulnerable. Laugh. Cry. Chances are I'll be laughing and crying right there with you, and I feel so incredibly lucky to do so. I know my marriage has been my greatest adventure, and I can't wait to document yours.

Not only is Melissa my best friend/coworker. I've been fortunate enough to have her alongside my husband and I to document some of the most important moments of our lives From our engagement to our wedding, and even getting our first furbaby – Melissa has been there. Documenting our lives as they happen, she's given us the most precious gift. Her ability to put you at ease, make you laugh, instantly breaks down that personal bubble you share with your partner and you want nothing more than to welcome her in, show her your vulnerability and your love for each other.
Aside from my experience as a client, I can say working for such a lady boss has been nothing short of inspiring. If you didn't already know, Melissa is actually superwoman. She has incredible stamina and works so hard.
Overall, if you're reading these reviews trying to decide who to hire for your next life event – pick Melissa.
There aren’t enough words in the world to describe Melissa’s talent. She is a dream to work with. Not only is she a true artist, but she is a genuine, loving soul. she was phenomenal to work with for my engagement shoot, in home boudoir shoot and most importantly, my wedding.
She made everyone feel so comfortable and confident.
Melissa is a true talent and I am so thankful to have had her as my photographer.
