Business Overview

Hey, I’m Mel & I want to be your photographer. But first I’d like to be your friend, because I want you to feel really, really comfortable when I’m hiding in the bushes and climbing on chairs or tree stumps at your wedding.

See, I like to do things a bit differently. I’m the photographer for the eccentric bride, the quirky family, and the offbeat couples. I believe in the beautiful mess of bringing home a newborn baby, the real moments with family, and the stolen kiss of newlyweds who think no one is watching (this is where that bush-hiding thing comes in). Your life isn’t a posed portrait in front of a paper backdrop, so why would your photos be?

I’m looking for my soulmate clients. In order to truly capture your relationships, I need to build one with you, too! Let’s go out for coffee (my treat!) so you can tell me your engagement story, or we can spend some time gushing over baby booties. Photography talk can wait for the second date.

I’ll shoot any and all types of weddings; from small and intimate backyard BBQ’s to big fancy bashes, black tie affairs and even destination weddings, I’m game for anything. I’ll be there to document the story of your day as it unfolds.

In addition to weddings and engagements I also offer maternity, newborn, and family sessions. Check out my galleries for more info on what to expect, and learn more about the method to my madness.
