As a former theatre girl turned Wedding Photographer, I’ve heard the phrase, “Once more with feeling” plenty of times; but it gives the connotation “to put on” a feeling, and that’s just not it for me.

I want you to feel FREE and completely in the moment on your Wedding Day. I create an environment for you to be your most AUTHENTIC self. Making people feel comfortable is something that has always come natural to me. When you are comfortable, you’re able, not only to be your most authentic self, but also to CONNECT with those around you; and while that’s happening, I’ll be there creating ART out of how it felt.

Creating Art out of how it felt 

Meet Melissa



As a Documentary Wedding Photographer for 10+ years in York PA, my favorite photo to capture is when a couple is completely in their own world and not even aware of the camera. I strive for that photo EVERY time. 

You deserve to have the best photography experience on your wedding day.

reasons why you and i connect:

✔ You want the emotion of the day captured through beautiful storytelling in a documentary approach. 
✔ You love that nostalgic feeling you get from film photos and you dream of having your wedding photos captured in this way.
✔ You love portraits, but care the most about having those sweet, candid, fleeting moments captured so you can look back and remember them forever.
✔ You agree that everyone has the right to love and be married, and more than that are in support of the LGBTQIA+ Community. (Please don’t bother inquiring if you disagree) This is a space of love, my friends!

kind words from bliss photos clients:

5 are simply not enough stars to reflect our review of Melissa and Bliss Photos. From the first conversation with her, she was in tune with me, my now husband, and our vision for the wedding. She was easy to communicate with, a breeze to work with, remained professional throughout. She even arrived early to the venue to scope out the best photo spots. Melissa has a brilliant aesthetic vision and the skills needed to execute it. She was collaborative with us, listening to our suggestions with enthusiasm, and flexible with changes and the craziness of the wedding day! She remained an organized, calm presence throughout the evening and we didn't even realize when she and her second shooter had slipped in to capture candid moments. We are looking at our photos like they are snapshots from a beautiful film we watched, and she truly knows how to capture the mood of the moment. We are beyond impressed with Melissa and will be recommending her work to everyone we know!
