I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.
I'm Melissa and I'm so happy you're here. This blog is a fun space to get lost exploring recent weddings and sessions, to get inspired, and to get to know me better. Stay a while and say hello!
I love fall for so many reasons, but one of my favorites has to be that it is family session time! I love getting to see families returing each year- a little taller, sometimes a little larger in numbers, and most importantly ready to play, laugh, and capture their family just as they are.
The moment happens that you have been waiting for…the love of your life tenderly slides a ring on your finger and you both embrace, there may or may not be some happy tears. You are ENGAGED! Congratulations!! Now what?
Maleyna and Austin’s dreamy Tucson Engagement Session took place at Honey Bee Canyon.
This intimate wedding in Gold Canyon Arizona was elegant and filled with joy. With the Superstition Mountains as the backdrop of their ceremony Irma and Stephen began their lives together as husband and wife.
From Rocky Hillsides to breathtaking sunsets, Ethan and Greer’s Engagement Session in Oro Valley, Arizona was perfect! Ethan and Greer were in their own little “love bubble” the entire session and it was such a treat to capture all the snuggles, kisses, and sweet looks.
Stone Canyon is one of Tucson’s most premier private golf communities. It is absolutely stunning! When Hailey and Casey chose Stone Canyon as the location for their engagement session I was thrilled! Everywhere you look is gorgeous! Hailey and Casey were an absolute dream to work with! They are both such warm, loving people. We had a great time laughing, chatting, and capturing gorgeous photos of this exciting season of their lives!
As a wedding photographer, I have anxiously been waiting to shoot my baby sister’s engagement session! Allison wanted her engagement session to be romantic, dreamy, and representative of Tucson. Choosing Gates Pass was the obvious choice. The desert is gorgeous and the sunsets are breathtaking.
I’m excited to share this feature from Let’s Bee Together of a bridal boudoir sesion. Bridal Boudoir sessions are an opportunity to let that self-love and confidence radiate from you. It isn’t all about sexy lingerie and heavy makeup. It is about capturing the love you feel for yourself and the all the little details he loves about you too. The way you gently tuck your hair, your smile as you read a love letter he left for you, the arch of your back, and the tilt of your head. He loves all of you, and when you love all of you too, you are an unstoppable force.

Who wouldn’t want to get married at Disneyland? I know I definitely would! Well, Madi and Riley picked the closest thing to Disneyland in Tucson for their wedding. Chosing to get married at Pinnacle Peak in Tucson, Arizona Madi and Riley were able to kiss on the carousel, say “I do” under a white gazeboo, and celebrate with friends and family inside elegant Savoy House. Pinnacle Peak has played an important role in their relationship. A place they came while dating and with family, it just made sense that they would get married here. Their wedding day was full of joy and love!
