Welcome future Wedding Mates!

From the moment we begin talking, I am ready to leap into the journey with you and capture your love story with utmost intention and care. An extraordinary wedding photography & videography experience happens when we put a plan in place and show up day-of and create a relaxing carefree atmosphere that’s built on a foundation of trust, fun, and adventure. 

I’m not the kind of photographer who is going to force you to pose awkwardly, but I will look for natural cues that inspire me and provide you with prompts that guide you to interacting with your loved ones in an authentic, genuine way.

After any desired traditional family photos are done, I love escaping with just the couple to an epic location with beautiful landscape and light so we can capture some truly breathtaking moments with just the two of you. 

Back at the ceremony, I’ll be teary-eyed during your vows and also breaking out some dance moves on the dance floor while capturing you and your loved ones having the time of your lives! 

By the end of your wedding day, I will still be dancing with you. I am here to dance through this entire journey of marriage and life WITH you. 

I promise that if you embrace it all and trust me to capture all the moments, you will fall in love with your wedding day even more once you see your photos and film. 

You deserve a photographer and videographer who will show up to your wedding day as not only a vendor, but as your lifelong friend, your cheerleader, and your professional 3rd wheeler. 

I AM SO GRATEFUL TO DO WHAT I LOVE.

THEY CARE ABOUT THE DETAILs and HOW THEY TREAT PEOPLE IN THE PROCESS. NOTHING MAKES MELANIE.CO HAPPIER THAN TURNING CLIENTS INTO FRIENDS & BEARING WITNeSS TO CLIENTS' LIFE JOURNEYs & CAPTURING ALL THEIR LIFE MOMENTS!

They value my work and they value each other.

MY dream CLIENTS LOVE ADVENTURE & travel, gorgeous EARTHY tones, and HAVE KIND HEARTS & AN UNAPOLOGETICALLY AUTHENTIC STYLE,




WHO I SERVE

they are the adventure-seekers, family-lovers, go-getters, heart-on-fires, crazy-in-lovers.

Learn more about MY PHILOSOPHY

THE EXPERIENCE

From the time you reach out to me onwards, I’m rooting for you. I’m ready to capture all the moments while also helping you in anyway possible and helping you find the right people to make sure your day runs as smooth as possible and your vision comes to life.

From the joy when you buy your dress to the day-of excitement and nervous butterflies, I’m here to walk the journey with you.

During your engagement session, we’ll be sharing stories, exploring, laughing, and capturing incredible photos - you’ll get to know me and my style and I’ll get to know you so we have that foundation of trust already established!

When the wedding day arrives, we’ll be all set. My goal is to capture the moments AND capture the FEELINGS of your day, so you will always remember what your special day felt like.

I’m ready to be teary-eyed during your first look and heartfelt vows for each other. I'm ready for our heart-to-hearts and I’ll be there to tell you to EMBRACE the nerves and imperfections of the day because it’s all beautiful and is what makes your day uniquely YOU. So heck with it, DANCE like nobody in the world is watching. EXPLORE and have FUN like your life depends on it. SOAK IT ALL UP - and I will make sure to capture it all so you can relive it all when you look back through your photos and films.

Melanie checks every box, my friends. She is attentive to clients needs, understands her clients and their desires and captures their vision unlike anybody I've seen accomplish before. I watched my video and was crying at the end. Melanie captures videos and photos, but more importantly she captures the emotions.. you are able to look back and relive those feelings and memories all over again as if you're experiencing them for the first time. You won't find that anywhere else. You will never find someone who loves this job more than her. Every meeting, every conversation, and the 9 hour job of filming, not once did that girl stop smiling. Full of passion and joy, she makes every session fun and enjoyable! Trust me, you can't go wrong with Melanie.

"Trust me, you can't go wrong with Melanie.

Melanie invests her entire heart into all her work and is selfless in how she puts her clients first in everything! She is an inspiration, such an encourager and an absolute delight and joy to work with and truly cares for each of her clients. She has so much fun with her time with you. She is adventurous, willing and excited to go outside the box and try new things. We were touched and moved to tears so many times throughout watching the film. We were blown away by what Melanie was able to so beautifully bring together! It's not just a job to her, it's so evidently her calling and passion and you will see that and experience that yourself when you choose Melanie to capture part of your story and moments to look back on and treasure for a lifetime.

Melanie gives the reins to the people she is working with and that means the whole world to us! We did a last minute engagement photoshoot & wedding shoot (a week apart from each other) and Melanie made it work. The fact that she is so flexible gave us the most opportunities to get the pictures that we wanted and to this day (10 months later), we look back on the photoshoot days as fun and memorable! She even posted behind the scene photos - which were my personal favorite.

Melanie cares about her clients and strives to give them the best setting as she can. She is a wonderful photographer to have and someone you won’t have to worry about when it comes to your big day because she will take care of it!
