I specialize in small (generally under 100 guests) non-traditional weddings. An event of this size is an intimate experience. It’s critical that your photographer is someone you are comfortable with in order for them to be a positive addition to your special day. I pride myself on the ability to connect with people and easily build on those relationships.

I have photographed weddings in Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, Hawaii and Washington with varying locations that have included mountains, forests, lakes, beaches, cities, and even one that ended with a bicycle ride down main street. I’m happy to travel to remote locations or nearby cities.

Today couples are looking for a more complete wedding experience. Let's capture that dream together.

I was delighted by Melissa’s ability to capture the best moments of my wedding. She was very unobtrusive, yet seemed to be everywhere! When the photos came out, I couldn’t believe how wonderfully and accurately they portrayed the feeling of the moment!

My Husband and I were very lucky to have Melissa do our wedding pictures in 2013. Melissa has a wonderful energy and a clear understanding of how to capture people in a candid and timeless way. Melissa communicated with us many times prior to the wedding date and knew exactly what we wanted in our wedding pictures. She knew exactly where to be and was so fun and helpful in creating some really excellent pre-ceremony shots that I really treasure. Melissa was never in the way and blended in with the crowd. One of my main wants for our wedding pictures was that they looked natural and candid. She was able to capture our family and friends with their real smiles, silly moments, and the best couple shots any bride could ask for. If we could do it all over I would choose her again! I can’t recommend her enough; she really has a special talent.
