behind the lens
Hello friend and welcome! I'm Melissa, film wedding and portrait photographer from sunny South Florida. I"m the kinda girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and sees the world through a rose-colored lens. My photography journey started fifteen years ago in my High School darkroom. These days you can find me traveling the country capturing beauty, love, and joy for the sweetest and most amazing couples.
On a gorgeous day in April, Hannah and Mitchell said "i do" at a beach resort on the southern coast of Texas. The brides parents own a home here, making the venue and town all the more special. Romantic coastal elements were paired with hints of Palm Beach, Texas, and the South, culminating in a wedding that felt so true to both the bride and groom.
On a sunny afternoon in October, Makayla and Alex joined me aboard a 30 foot sailboat and sailed along Palm Beach's inter-coastal waterways. The two got married this Summer in Italy and to celebrate stateside we did a bridal session with Makayla's second wedding dress.
This year I'm hosting two holiday mini session dates, open to families, couples, and individuals. December 2nd will be held in Palm Beach at the Memorial Park and Fountain and December 3rd will be at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach with an optional neutral festive lounge area.
