"Melissa was one of three photographers recommended by my wedding planner. Her work was the first (and last) I looked at. Once I saw samples of her pictures, I knew Melissa was the one I wanted to shoot mine and my husband's special day; I didn't even consider the other two recommendations. I'm so happy that I chose her!

I don't like to be photographed, but Melissa's friendly personality made me feel relaxed and beautiful. I'm so pleased with the way the pictures turned out! Melissa also managed to capture the way my husband and I interact with each other, the lively personalities of the wedding guests, and the beauty of the wedding space in her pictures. In addition to the quality of Melissa's pictures, I also appreciated her efficiency and she responded to all my emails within a day if not the same day. I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a quality photographer. She's amazing!"

"Melissa was absolutely amazing to work with!
We hired Melissa for our engagement photos,
our rehearsal dinner, our welcome party, and our
entire wedding day. She captured every detail
and moment perfectly and we never felt staged.
Our friends and family keep commenting on
how great the photos are.

We also greatly appreciated
her organization through her detailed schedule we were able to coordinate the rest of our vendors for our wedding day, in turn helping to make the day stress free.

She is just the best!!"

"Melissa was incredible to work with, not just for our wedding weekend, but over the course of our entire wedding planning process. Despite never traveling to our church or reception site prior to our wedding day (we live in Indianapolis), she navigated the ceremony and reception flawlessly and produced angles and close-ups we couldn't have imagined she would capture.

 She photographed our loved ones as if they were her friends and our surroundings with a familiarity of a local.  The final product revealed a candid glimpse into the most heartfelt, warm, and exciting moments of what was the best day of our lives. Casting our trust to someone to capture the most important day of our life was not easy, but Melissa proved to be nothing but the best.

Thank you, Melissa!"

"When I set out to hire a wedding photographer for our wedding, I didn't have to think hard about it; I knew I would be hiring Melissa. She had photographed my sister's wedding a few years before, and it was a no-brainer that I would hire her. Hiring a superior wedding photographer was something that my husband and I put at the top of our priority list, and Melissa certainly exceeded all of our expectations. 

Not only were our photos stunning, but they were unique--seemingly tailored to us, our wedding concept, and our venue. And what's more, the photography session was not only painless, but truly enjoyable!!! When we received our photos from Melissa. I got chills--and so did my husband! Melissa is organized and professional, friendly and approachable, and most of all superbly talented."

"My husband and I had our wedding on Lake Oconee this past July. It was 104 degrees the day of our wedding and we had an outside ceremony and reception. 

Melissa was absolutely wonderful despite the hot weather - she was extremely patient, stuck to her schedule, and captured every
special and little moment we could have ever wanted.
Our photos are breath taking!

Thank You!"

KATE CHOPIN, THE AWAKENING

“The voice of the sea is seductive; never ceasing, whispering, clamoring, murmuring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of solitude; to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation. The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.”
