About Melissa

I shoot from the heart. 

My eyes tear up at every wedding and everytime I meet a newborn, I can't help it, even though I've tried.  I'm an incurable romantic.  I believe in love, family and the traditions that bind families and hearts together.    Sometimes it means bribing a concierge to climb on the roof top of a building to get the best view of the mountain where a couple met,  or hiking through weeds and cactus to get to the spot where a man proposed to his bride.  Sometimes it means just paying attention and catching special giggles and smiles over secrets that only you and your family know.  Whatever the case, I want to know your story.  I want to do the best job I possibly can to help you remember one of the most important days of your life or, in the case of a family session, I want you to remember those moments in between.  Those are the moments you're going to cherish.

I am constantly amazed by the power of love, the promise of tomorrow and the sweetness of a family's bond.  I hope that my photographs reflect all of these emotions and more.

I can honestly say, there is no better place to be than behind my lens.  The love I've seen there fills me with happiness.

I shoot from the heart.  Thanks to all my clients that have returned the love to me.
