I am a small town, traveling photographer from the desert of west Texas with a love for storytelling & alphabetizing my Pinterest boards. I am obsessed with our newly renovated kitchen (just call us Chip + JoJo), binge watching 'Friends' on Netflix and eating rocky road ice cream, year round!  My heart is inspired by authentic connections & love-filled marriages!

about

I'm a small town, traveling photographer from west Texas with a love for storytelling & day dreaming. I have an obsession with our newly renovated kitchen, binge watching crime shows on Netflix & eating pints of rocky road ice cream, *year round*. My heart is inspired by authentic connections & love-filled marriages. I cannot wait to walk through life's special moments with you!

Welcome friend!

I'm Melanie, but my
friends call me Mel!
