I'm the ginger haired girl in the picture; and that ruggedly handsome man twirling me is my loving and supportive husband, Ben.

We are happy parents to two sweet hound mixes, Olive and Nessy. We also have our sweet baby boy, Henry, who is about to be a big brother in the next few months!

My teachers in elementary school used to say that I'm a bit of a daydreamer or that I've got my head in the clouds. Yes, it's true, I tend to daydream a bit even as an adult, but nine times out of ten, I'm dreaming about new creative projects for my photography. I'm so passionate about my art, that I am constantly thinking of new ideas, whether it be concept shoots, new unique poses, or interesting ways to use lighting. 

here's a bit about me:

Hi! I'm Melissa.


What gets me absolutely pumped?

✔ Hiking with Nessy + Olive
✔ Drinking hot cocoa on a chilly night
✔ Getting cozy by a nice bonfire
✔ Refreshing morning yoga practice

Listen, I do what I do because every single time I hear my couples talk about their love story, my heart bursts like The Grinch's heart-o-meter. I'm unabashedly corny when it comes to love. Getting to photograph two people who want to celebrate spending their lives together brings me so much joy!

Why do I do what I do?
