The Wedding Experience

Life is all about connection – to our family, to our friends, to our truest selves – and the relationships we build that create our richest memories. Capturing your meaningful moments and connecting families through photography is my heart’s greatest joy. Once you submit your first inquiry through this contact form, I will reach out via email so we can get to know each other to make sure we are the perfect match for your wedding day. 

From the first inquiry through each of your heirloom memories, I promise to give your love story the attention, energy, and focus it rightly deserves. I only accept ten weddings per year to ensure that each of my couples feels supported and cherished every step of the way.

Your Wedding Day is a new chapter of your love story. This special day will be filled with intricate details that let others sneak a tiny glimpse of this love story. Communication is key in bringing your unique vision to life, and my goal is to be your confidant and friend, every step of the way; allowing you to be fully present and truly enjoy this joy-filled day. 

I cannot wait to capture, both the big and the in-between moments, that make up these lasting memories. So please don’t be shy! Share with me all that inspires you. Let’s get this celebration started!

Whether your vision is an intimate, personal commemoration or the celebration of a lifetime with all of your family and friends, I am honored to document this incredible day for you. Together we will create images that represent you and your unique love: the laughs you share with your best friends as you get ready, the tears on your fiancé’s face, mere minutes, before he becomes your husband, the catch in your chest as you hear the ceremony musicians begin. These are the honest moments I want to capture for you. These are the images that make this day a tangible piece of personal history.

When it comes to editing your images, I believe in Quality over quantity. Each image deserves the utmost respect, which is why your final wedding gallery will be delivered 3 months following your wedding day. As a hybrid photographer, you can expect one-of-a-kind Fine Art quality images that will remain timeless heirloooms for generations to come. 

Finally, let's capture your love story!

In order to ensure the best experience possible for my couples, I accept a limited number of weddings per year. A custom package will be tailored to your needs – taking into account the location, wedding party size, and more.

Investment for weddings begins at $4900*

"Where do I even start?!? Melanie is absolutely amazing and so very talented! My husband and I adore her so much. Actually everyone in our wedding adores her! She did our engagement, bridals and wedding. I can’t put into words how wonderful this lady is. anyone needing a photographer, she is your girl! She puts her heart into everything she does and we feel so blessed to have met this sweet lady, that we now call our friend.
Mel, thank you for being you!

"Melanie’s work is beautiful. She was so fun to work with and we love the way she captured our special day. We are so sad we won’t be seeing her regularly now that the wedding is over because we left every session with her so encouraged and excited about the rest of our lives! I cannot say enough good things about her, you’ll have to work with her to see!"

"Melanie is the best in the business!! Every single aspect of her work is effortless & beautiful. She is talented AND the sweetest person in the world. The detailed creativity she puts into her work is UNMATCHED! She made all of our wedding photography dreams come true! The images are something we will treasure for the rest of our lives and I'm so thankful I had such a wonderful friend their to share in those moments with us. I could go on and on about her work but truly the person behind the camera is who you need to invest in. She made our whole experience stress-free! Mel will be your best cheerleader and hype woman. No matter the insecurities you feel, she drowns all of that out with love and grace. Mel has a special way of turning a photo shoot into something truly joyful. I am so thankful I had the best photographer!! Thanks for all that you did to make it all come together!"

"Melanie is hands down the BEST photographer in the business!
She is so accommodating and did the most wonderful job of making us feel so comfortable during our pictures. Not only does she do a terrific job with all the "staged poses", but she also captures so many sweet candid moments you will be thankful to have for years to come. If you want a photographer who will make you feel like the most beautiful and special couple, do yourself a favor and book her for your big day, you will not regret it!"
