Ready for gorgeous photos that will make you fall in love all over again?
Perfect, I'm your girl!
10 years, over 100 weddings, over 250 portraits sessions & more beautiful moments captured then I can count. I've learned that gorgeous photos start way before you get in front of the camera.
They start with getting to know each other and your desires for your photographs. It continues with help & guidance on picking the perfect outfit that makes you excited to wear it. Plus tips on coordinating all your outfits so you look like you just stepped out of a magazine!
Finally, it all comes together as I guide you through my easy posing process so you feel comfortable & relaxed. The result is gorgeous photos that you plus your friends and family will love!
"Melissa is an absolute joy to work with and she clearly goes above and beyond for her clients. She produced images more amazing than I ever dreamed (and worlds better than my example photos)! We loved her and how she captured that special time in our lives!" - Taylor
I Believe in Legacy
I photograph couples who desire to have Classic, Romantic & Joyful photographs documenting their life. I’m lucky to capture them as their love story unfolds from engagement session to wedding and then starting a family and beyond. Over the last 10 years of photographing weddings and portraits I have learned that my favorite part of my job is developing lasting relationships with my couples. This starts with the engagement session and by the wedding day I’m photographing friends!
After doing this for so long I love when my couples reach back out to tell me they are having their first baby! Seeing them become parents and documenting those first moments together as a family are truly special to me. Even if you weren't a wedding client of mine I want to give you amazing newborn photos too!
"I love that Melissa has been there for all the major moments in our lives. From our engagement to wedding and now our first born son." Matt
As a photographer I’ve been featured in magazines and many online wedding blogs and I love seeing my clients hard work and amazing photos recognized by industry professionals. You can see a few of the places I’ve been published below!
Award Winning Photographer As Seen On
When I’m not busy capturing beautiful weddings or photographing adorable newborns you can catch me sailing the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay on our 40′ sailboat Apogee with my handsome husband David, and our crazy boys.
They have been sailing all their lives and are getting old enough to start helping out a bit and they love it! Sailing was something we just kind of fell into and here we are 8 years and 3 boats later spending our summer vacations cruising the Bay for weeks on end.
