Are you tired of looking for a photographer for every life season?


One of the biggest struggles I hear from clients is finding a photographer you jive with. Someone who sees you as a human being, hears your ideas and is there to see you through every season of life. That is my heart behind why I do what I do. 

From start to finish, I want you to feel seen. I want to collaborate on your visions and bring them to life OR give you confidence to trust me even when you have no idea what you're looking for.

When we work together, you become my people. Seeing you through all that life brings, and consistently being in your professional hype-woman.

Hey friend!! I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE!

I'M MELANIE farmer

I photograph real people and real stories in Chattanooga, Tennessee and beyond!

I am a sucker for happy endings, vibrant colors, and photos that breathe life, but also take your breath away. I aim to capture images that will be a beautiful reminder of your life’s milestones. I consider myself a “lifetime photographer.” Whether it’s to document your engagement, wedding, squishy newborn photos, senior graduation, or anything in between; I want to be there with you through it all!

Melanie is LITERALLY the best!

My fiancé and I both felt so comfortable around her and laughed non stop. She's been so understanding and great to work with. She provides advice for whatever you may need! Excited to have her be part of our big day. Thank you, Melanie!

Melanie is AMAZING!

Not only are her pictures incredible, but she is so fun to work with and makes everyone involved feel relaxed and excited! She did our engagement and wedding pictures and both experiences were awesome. She helped plan our wedding timeline and made sure everything flowed smoothly as well as giving us the most incredible pictures of these special moments. I cannot recommend her enough!!

Melanie is absolutely wonderful!

She is professional, personable, & down-to-earth. Melanie makes you feel comfortable and at-ease when getting your pictures made. My husband and I loved working with her, and we plan to use her for all future photography needs!
