Ever since I was little I've been obsessed with love stories. Two people, finding each other in this crazy world, and deciding that they want to spend the rest of their live together. My passion is for capturing beautiful and natural imagery that's filled with laughter, love, and light. I work together with my couples from beginning to end to create a truly custom photoshoot experience, ensuring that each image reflects you, your style, and your story.
Melissa is one AMAZING photographer! I found her on Instagram, and was in love with her photography style. Melissa made us feel so comfortable and let us be ourselves. At first, I was nervous that Deep would be shy around someone we’ve never met, but she made us feel SO ourselves. The pictures she took are stunning and truly capture the essence of our relationship. She is definitely creative, talented and professional. I can’t thank you enough, Melissa for capturing such sweet pictures. No stress. No pressure. It was just so natural and real. We loved our experience with her! We love your work and thanks for being so sweet!

All portrait packages include an email or phone consultation, session planning, hair and makeup, complimentary wardrobe, my photography and editing time, and a set amount of retouched images (30-60 depending on which package you choose). You'll have access to an online digital gallery where you can easily download, share, and print your fully retouched images.
I offer creative portrait sessions for seniors, teens, couples, maternity, and boudoir. All sessions take place outdoors at parks, beaches, and natural areas using only natural light. I schedule sessions for the late afternoon/early evening during the "golden hour" for the best and softest light. All sessions are personalized so that every aspect of your shoot reflects you and your style.
Your session day will start in the early afternoon with hair and makeup. Before heading out to shoot, we will style all of your looks so there's no guesswork when we're on location! Then your session begins! A second hair and/or makeup look can be done on location during wardrobe changes. And fear not, I will provide an on-site portable changing room for you! Overall expect to spend an average of 5-6 hours with me on your session day.
