I'm a South Florida native and currently reside in Coconut Creek, the "butterfly capitol of the world", with my handsome hubby Tyler. I am a Wedding and Portrait Photographer and love anything having to do with traveling and love. Especially when the two are combined! 

Most days you can find me working at my desk with an Anthropologie candle burning nearby and something relaxing playing in the background. Or possibly Pride and Prejudice on repeat. I love small meaningful gestures, singing in the car, flowers, swaying palm trees, dreamy light, and hearing all about my couples love stories! 

When I'm not working I love spending time with my hubby, exploring new breweries, hiking the Everglades, and trying new recipes for our weekly "date night at home." I live for days when we get to sit pool side together, mimosa's in hand, and dream about our next European adventure and all the memories we have yet to make!

Hello there! I'm Melissa, your new photographer, best friend and hopeless romantic.

Behind the Camera

Hi, I'm Melissa!

I love all things feminine, floral, and pastel. I never leave the house without lipstick on. I own way too many dresses. Large brimmed hats and statement earrings are my jam. And I have seen/read Pride & Prejudice more times than I care to admit.

I've loved traveling ever since I can remember. I asked my parents when I was ten years old to take me to Paris for my sixteenth birthday (and they did)! Since then I've traveled to almost ten countries and counting including Scotland, Greece, and Spain.

I got my own fairytale ending this March when I married my best friend Tyler! We met the old fashioned way- at a bar with friends! After that first meeting we made our friends set us up (he was too shy to ask for my number)! And the rest is history! Together we love to travel but we're also homebodies who love watching HGTV and the Food Network together, cooking, and trolling Zillow looking for our forever home!
