HEY I’m Melissa!

I’ll get straight to the point because I know you don’t have all day to read about me. I love photographing weddings and couples. That’s most likely the reason you’re here and I’m so excited you made it!

Your day deserves to be documented exactly as it happened. Whether it's your first look (or your walk down the aisle), your first dance, or a classic portrait with your grandparents, I've got your back. This is YOUR DAY. I get all the good stuff, all the emotional stuff, and all the important stuff because everything that matters to you will also matter to me. I've got you. I’m also not afraid to be myself and will happily dance my butt off on the dance floor alone…just sayin’.

If you're wondering who the heck I am, here's a little about me: I'm a mama to a wild, red headed, 3 year old boy called Oliver and wife to an amazing dude I call "C". I eat a burrito at least once a week (#noshame) and I LOVE Madewell. Seriously, Madewell can have all my money. I’m also obsessed with Harry Potter and love all things space because #sciencerules and I’m a little bit nerdy.

Over there is my little fam-bam. That’s my Oliver (the red head) and he's pretty freakin' magical. He's strong-willed (like his mama) and fiery. He's also the sweetest soul I've ever known. And that other guy is my awesome husband, Christopher. People get really confused by genetics and how we managed to make a kid that looks like Oliver. Yes, we both have red hair in our families and yes, people ask us that all the time. He's my cheerleader and #1 fan and I'd never be where I am without him.
