I was born and raised in a small town in midcoast Maine, where I still reside to this day! After picking up a camera at age 13, I haven't put it down since. My favorite thing is getting to photograph wonderful people, people like YOU!

Melissa is a fantastic wedding photographer and a wonderful person to have around on your wedding day! We knew we found the right person for us as soon as we met. She is a phenomenal communicator, exceedingly calm and collected, and VERY skilled at what she does. She was excellent at understanding what we wanted for our day, gave great suggestions and guidance, took AMAZING photos, and worked with us to make sure we got everything we wanted within our time and budget constraints. She took especially wonderful photos of us after the ceremony and has a true talent for capturing candid shots that bring us right back into the feeling of the whole day. Wedding planning was a stressful process overall, but everything about working with Melissa was anti-stress. I could not recommend her highly enough!

We loved working with Melissa for our engagement and wedding shoot. She has a wonderfully creative eye and makes her subjects feel comfortable and relaxed. She captured some really lovely moments at the wedding and was so accommodating as guests requested different groupings. One of the things I appreciated most was her timeliness. Both sets of photos were ready within a week and the editing and choosing wasn't rushed to satisfy clients. She's enthusiastic and professional and we were so glad to have had her recording such an important day.

Melissa is amazing! She traveled all the way to North Carolina from Maine for my wedding. She did a phenomenal job. She was excellent at discussing what we liked, and wanted to see prior to the wedding, and also giving us some suggestions. Her calm, cool personality really helps on what can be a really stressful day! Thank you Melissa for everything!
