"Melissa is a dream photographer!"
Melissa exceeds all expectations! Her cheerful attitude and organization lightened my load and I could relax and enjoy my wedding day. I wasn't worried at all because I knew she would take care of us.

I go above and beyond to make my couple's day incredible! I want to help in anyway that you need. Whether that is with planning, bustling your dress, pinning boutonniers, giving my shoes to you when the heels just hurt too bad (yes, I have done this before) or just being there to encourage you during portraits. I have a natural ability to put others at ease, which translates to beautiful photos. When you are comfortable and able to be your true self, it is evident in your photos.

"We'd hire Melissa over and over again."
Even though our wedding is over, we will be using Melissa for all our family photos in the future. She is amazing!
In my experience 8 hours of coverage is the perfect amount of time at the very least to make sure I am able to capture your wedding day from start to finish! When reminicing over your wedding album together, with your children, and eventually grandchildren you will love getting to re-live your entire day together.
This is a great question! To be honest, it varies throughout the day. There are times during the wedding day that I will need to give direction to organize family members or your wedding party to keep us on time and ensure you receive the images you are hoping for. However, there are times during the day that I blend into the background such as during your ceremony, dances, and reception. During your couples portraits, I will give gentle direction and encouragement when needed. But I always leave space for those quiet moments and natural emotions to unfold.
Absolutely! I love to travel and I am available to travel worldwide for weddings, family sessions, elopements, or engagement sessions.
On average, I deliver 75 photos per hour of coverage. I deliver as many photos as I possibly can, whilst removing any that are not up to standard or are duplicates.
For weddings, I recommend booking at least 6-12 months before your wedding date to ensure I am available. For family and other portrait sessions I recommend 3 months out.
After inquiring and confirming availability, a $1,000 retainer payment and a signed contract will reserve your wedding date.
Absolutely! Together we can create a custom collection based off my a la carte menu that meets your needs.
You will receive your images via an online gallery approximately 6-8 weeks after your wedding date. For engagement and family sessions, my turn around time is 2-4 weeks.
