I'm Melissa, a Twin Cities based wedding photographer. I’m here to capture beautiful, candid, and REAL moments. 

I have worked in the wedding industry for 8 years and I love everything about it. The planning, the anticipation, the energy when the day finally arrives - it's the best! I specialize in weddings while also offering engagement sessions, senior sessions, and family sessions.

I want to capture bride and grooms running into the sunset, seniors twirling their skirts in tall grasses, and families loving on their new little baby. I’m not going to tell you to sit on a bench with a stiff smile and a head tilt... I’m here to get you moving and experiencing life as you naturally do while simultaneously capturing photos. 

I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE

ABOUT ME

WELCOME

Melissa is the BEST photographer we could have asked for on our wedding day! Leading up to the wedding, she answered any questions I had about the day and read the situation of how involved I wanted to be picking out first look and photo spots. If I said "I trust you", she handled it all! On the day of, she was energetic and efficient. She made taking photos so fun, our whole bridal party agreed. Would 10/10 recommend Melissa as your photographer - she will be our go-to for all future photo needs!

We are beyond lucky to have had Melissa as our wedding photographer.. She is exceptionally talented in all aspects of her work and delivered the most beautiful photos we could have ever hoped for. She combines her natural creativity with a top-notch skillset and just has a way of knowing exactly how to make your wedding vision come to life. Her conscientiousness and ability to organize and give clear directions during shoots does not go unnoticed. She goes above and beyond to make your experience professional, comfortable, and fun. Anyone who has the chance to work with Melissa should consider themselves lucky.
