preserve your romance with an unforgettable experience
I genuinely care about my brides having the perfect photographer for them. So first thing we will do is get on a brief phone call and get to know each other! I want to hear all about you, your day and what you dream about when you look back at your images in 20 years. Once you decide to move forward, and confirm your date is available, the booking process is super simple. Everything you need to secure will be sent right to your inbox. You'll then receive some snail mail with a beautiful welcome package!
Every wedding collection includes a complimentary engagement session. After you secure your wedding date, we will shortly start to plan for your session! From wardrobe, to location, to time of day- I'll provide you with everything you need to feel confident that we will create the most gorgeously romantic portraits to remember this sweet season of your lives together. I like to have fun and make you feel at ease. I love that this session also gives us time to really get to know one another before your big day!
At two months out from your day we will be finalizing all details for your day to be sure we are 100% prepared. One of the most important calls we'll have is your day of timeline conversation. I want you to walk away with every image of your day that you've dreamt of your wedding day. Romantic portraits, and all the gorgeous details you've poured all your time into making perfect. Chatting timeline is crucial to ensure we create enough time for everything you want and need!
Can you believe it?! All your hard work and planning and your big day is finally here! Every wedding collection includes 2 photographers so that you receive complete coverage of your day. As the lead photographer, I'll stay focused on the main events, while the second shooter is sure to grab all those in between moments you don't want to forget. Your wedding will also be featured on my blog the following week so you'll get a preview ASAP of your day! Because who can wait that long?!
Following your wedding day you'll then receive a beautiful online gallery to view all of your photos. It's so nice not to HAVE to wait until something physical comes in the mail- although you will also get a keepsake USB to have that as well! You'll receive at least 700 images! I always encourage my couples to make a romantic evening of their viewing their photos. Pour a glass of wine, turn down the lights and enjoy soaking in one of the best days of your life!
My hope is for each one of my couples to own a custom designed album from their wedding day. I truly believe an album tells the story of your day in a way that no other product can.In this digital age, we've lost touch with so many beautiful tangible treasures and a wedding album has become one of those. It is your very first family heirloom and what your children will look at and treasure. Not to mention an incredibly romantic way to remember the day!
during my career
Melissa is an amazing person with a good soul. Very creative and sees the beauty in each session. She captures the emotion and moment that you can feel years later. Extremely personable and genuine. I've had many different style shoots with her and amazed each time. She provides the experience you're looking for when seeking important photos that you will treasure forever. Those important moments you can never get back. Love her style and highly recommend.
"Where do I even begin? Melissa was absolutely amazing, from start to finish! After the first time we met, I knew her talent was something special. She went above and beyond all expectations, from our engagement photos to our wedding photos. Somehow she was able to make us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Melissa made the planning process a breeze, especially with the timeline. From the photos we have seen, we are only left breathless. Her work is absolutely beautiful. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making our wedding dreams come true!"
Incredible is an understatement. Melissa far exceeded my expectations, and considering how detail obsessed I can be, that's a difficult task to accomplish. She blew it out of the water. There's something different about Melissa. The simplicity in the shots she takes capture the true beauty of the moment. With a soft focus style of shooting I was obsessed with her work on other weddings she had shot I knew she was going to nail it. There's no one else I'd recommend, she's truly the best you will find!
