Who I am

Hi, my name is Melissa and I'm into stories. Specifically, into your story. In an era that's saturated with flash, comparison and selfies, I long to get back to the basics with you. I specialize in natural light portraiture and authentic documentary. I'm for the fiercely real, wild-hearted bride whose up for the unexpected and ready to embrace life. And by life, I don't mean perfection. Life is when things go wrong, when the weather changes, when you rip your dress and fall down and it's in this very messy life that you met the love of it. So let it all happen and let me document it. I do promise that together we will make something altogether lovely and that it is my absolute mission to make you look like the best possible version of youself on your wedding day. If you wanna win my heart, I like Jesus, bears, coffee and conspiracy theories. And food. All the food.
