It’s the first glance as you’re walking down the aisle. The first kiss as a married couple. The way your hands fit together just right. The way they look at you as you say, “I do”. Promising forever with the mountains as your witnesses.
I’m here to capture the small, fleeting, ordinary, extraordinary moments that make up a life and a love story - not just how you looked, but how you felt.
Your full, real self is always welcome here. Your session should feel wild and free - like you’re out on a date and someone just happens to be there to capture it. No awkward poses, just you and your love in the moment with a little help from my artistic documentation and the landscape around us.
Expectations were blown out of the water. We could tell that we were going to love our shoot with Melissa just from looking at her portfolio, and boy were we right. Not only is she clearly incredibly talented and comfortable behind the lens, but also made the experience so genuinely fun and enjoyable. Her directions were so helpful, she made us feel like models! Such a comfortable person to be around, what a delight. Cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Melissa!
Having Melissa capturing our love in the most beautiful part of Italy was unforgettable. She instantly made us feel as ease. Having her there to help me get over my fear of the camera and looking awkward was amazing - when I saw the photos I couldn’t believe it was me! If you’re thinking of contacting Melissa, stop thinking right away and just reach out - you won’t regret it.
