I'll be there as a friend to capture your love story every step of the way. Let's make history.

I've traveled to the corners of Vienna and devoured their famous chocolate cake. I've danced in the streets of Amsterdam sharing hugs with strangers. Became an impromptu tour guide in the museums of London and made friends in a taxi headed through the roadways in Greece. Whether watching a sunset at lake Michigan with some of my favorite people or meditating on a beach at sunrise in Jamaica alone. There's a confidence that lives in me. There's a sense of direction I have gained coming from a big city. All the hustle and movement sets fire to whatever you may think could be and makes dreams a reality. I want to be your New York as it is to me. An honest imprint on the rest of your life. Whether you want to do it for the gram or remind Grandma how much you love her. 

I'm from a really cool cluster of islands called New York City. It developed my eye and gave me opportunity. City life molds you in a way that you can't grow out of. It imprints this honest grit deep inside your soul. My fellow New Yorkers and city folk know what that means. The best way to conceptualize that spirit is no matter how far you take the girl out of the city, you can't take the city out of that girl. 

Hey Gorgeous!
I'm Melanie, but you can call me Mel 

They can relive the day as If they were there with you.

Every ballroom, garden, mountain, castle or shore I walk too with my couples. Inspires me and fills me with gratitude. I get to be there; in that moment, present with them and allow them to be themselves. I take away the responsibility of capturing what you want to remember and relive. I ease the pressure of getting all the details so family that aren't present can be part of your story. 

I'm not your ordinary photographer.

In my life, what has brought me to be the most creative is viewing love, feeling love and experiencing people in love. The best part about capturing anything is the energy we receive from that particular moment. We're in a day and age where everyone takes pictures of any and everything. We are exploring creativity and imagination at an all time high. People and their families are documenting thousands and thousands pictures of each other on their phones and that type of love is infectious. It's the energy I want to stay around for the rest of my life.

I capture weddings for love and the people that share it with each other.

Your love story will forever be engraved in my heart and that experience will live on for generations to come.

I’m very passionate about creating a safe space for my couples to JUST BE IN LOVE. To be themselves. 

Sleek trousers with a long sleeve shirt cut at the neckline in monochromatic tones. Flats {one must always to be ready for anything}.

Jane Austen said it best “It’s not what we say or think, but what we do that defines us.”

Peonies. Hands down, they’re life. If you tell me you have peonies in your wedding, that’s all I need to know. I’m there.


Aside from my dogs? Giraffes!


So many! But when a bride first puts her dress on and sees herself all glammed is at the top of the list.
