"...two souls are sometimes created together and in love before they're even born. - f .Scott Fitzgerald
I'm here to capture the essence of your soul, while forever stilling a moment in time that will shape your future.
Every love story is different. A full day averages about 900-1000 captures.
I have a variety of coverage options available. You are able to book me for the duration that best suits your needs, but it is recommended that you begin with 8-hours of coverage to ensure I am able to capture your story completely.
Yes! I have a second shooter included in all packages.
It is highly likely! But if not, I’ll get acquainted as quickly as possible! Being unfamiliar with a location gets my creative juices flowing- I love new, exciting ventures and can’t wait to scope it out.
You will receive digital gallery access within 4-6 weeks of your event.
If you want them, I’ll be happy to hook you up! If not, no pressure from me.
"SO happy that we found Melanie! She was absolutely amazing every step of the way."
"On our wedding day, she arrived on time and immediately took over with the schedule of the day. I didn't even have a chance to worry before she assured me that she was in control. She was so calm and comfortable. We received our photos in just over two weeks, and they are all SO stunning, we really couldn't be happier. She captured many details we wouldn't have otherwise noticed and made our wedding look like a dream."
"Excellent experience, beautiful work, hiring her was the best decision."
"Melanie is not only a very talented photographer but a very sweet human being. I love all her work, she does an excellent job at capturing the best moments. She is very professional, patient, responsive, kind. She was very helpful throughout the wedding planning process, always available for any questions, super flexible and our experience on the wedding day and the final result was amazing."
"Great experience, loved her! I have nothing but great things to say about Melanie."
"She traveled all the way from Florida to Portland, OR to do our family photos for us and our experience with her was awesome. She was sweet and professional. She made us feel so comfortable, including our little 2.5 year old daughter. We loved how our photos turned out and would absolutely recommend her to friends & family and everyone else for that matter!"
