everything will fade in time.

You’re probably thinking, “dang, that’s a little rough to think about.” But hear me out: 

Your wedding flowers. Your wedding dress.

Your baby's cute little curls and their tiny hands.

And as much as we don’t want to admit, even a few memories will fade too. 

The only thing that will increase in its value is your photos. They are the only tangible memory you will have in time.

And I want you to have that, forever. 

So take the photo, book the session, capture your life exactly as it is - authentic, personal and vibrant.

Melanie and David are absolutely AMAZING!

After shooting with them the first time you feel like you have known them a lifetime. They invest so much effort and time into making sure they get the right shot all the way to editing the very last photo! I love knowing I have found a photographer for life!

Melanie is AMAZING!

She has mastered her craft and she makes the entire experience stress-free and enjoyable! She made the process feel easy and smooth before, during, and after the shoot. She tailors everything to you and your style and makes sure the real you always shines through. Her photography experience is
one-of-a-kind and she captures memories that you will cherish for a lifetime!!
