Timeless Photography Naturally Captured

Rooted In The Moment With An Eye For Beauty

I approach photographing a wedding day with a mixture of editorial portraiture and a candid documentary style. My goal is to preserve the emotion, ambiance, beauty, feeling, and unexpected moments while allowing you to remain present in your extraordinary day.

Your distinct day.

The best
wedding moments?

They Can’t Be Named. They Just Have To Be Captured.

Capturing your cherished moments is an art of spontaneity. As your wedding day unfolds naturally, I vow to let the authentic beauty of your story emerge. I will preserve the nuance of your day ensuring that it remains unforgettable.

If you're considering booking Melissa as your wedding photographer...just go ahead and do it. It will be the best decision you make for your wedding.

“Melissa is so professional, friendly, kind, and talented.”

She went above and beyond. We would definitely hire her again for any other photography needs and would recommend her to any friends getting married in the area. We also weren't the most traditional couple and Melissa was completely supportive. Thank you, Melissa, for being incredible in all respects!!!

I heard of Melissa through a mutual friend. After speaking with Melissa on a call, I instantly knew she would be perfect for our small, intimate wedding.

“She cared, listened, and was a great team player.”

Melissa was extremely attentive and communicative, and with her guidance, we made it all come together. We will treasure these photos forever!

“Throughout the shoot, she came up with great poses and spots to take shots that took advantage of the setting.”

The pictures came out looking wonderful, and she made our day all the more special. Can I recommend her enough?

- Veronica

We're going to cherish the wedding photos Melissa took on our big day forever!

“From the big picture to the finer details, Melissa is a pro!”

She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Not only is she a pro at couple and family wedding portraits, but she captured so many candid, fun moments throughout our day. She went above and beyond, also capturing the finer details of our wedding and our guests.
