read my story

While I am fueled by Skinny Pop and quality time, my heart is never more alive than when I’m behind my camera.

Whether big or small, there are joys and magical moments worth capturing in every season. I am honored to have the opportunity to elevate those moments alongside you!

I'm Melanie.

HEY Y'ALL!

Growing up, I wanted to push pause on my favorite moments by photographing them. I found myself spending so much of my time taking terrible images with my point and shoot camera that I was never truly able to enjoy what I was experiencing — whether that was a concert or a night hanging out with friends.

I figured that if I invested in a nice camera, I could spend less time behind the lens and more time in the moment. As you can imagine, that investment only intensified the passion that I had developed for capturing those memories!

I put a lot of value in keeping things real and honest. I strive to capture moments that are natural, fresh, and full of confidence. I think we are our best selves when we are in our element, with our people, or in our "happy place." That's going to cultivate the truest photos of you.

In whatever season we are celebrating together, or whatever dreams you’re chasing, I hope that the moments we capture are ones that are delighted in, honored, and remembered for years to come.

...and the innate desire to do things differently. Go ahead and judge me for the boyband love — all I really wanted was to take better photos at their concerts! (And to marry Nick, but that's a story for another day!)
