"My fiancé and I are blown away by how Melissa was able to capture our love story." 

caitlin & nick

Both my fiancé and I felt so comfortable, allowing Melissa to capture intimate moments that felt natural and not at all posed. She takes notice of every detail and her talent behind the lens shines through her work. We are beyond excited to work with Melissa again and can not wait for her to document our love story further with our upcoming wedding.
