Hi, my name is Melissa.
I specialize in romantic and soulful wedding photography for the intrepid couple.
Rooted in authentic documentary, with a background in photo-journalism, I'm all about telling the story of an entire day past pretty posed portraits. I long to get back to the basics: emotive color, actual people, raw emotion.
I'm for the fiercely real, wild-hearted couple who's up for the unexpected and ready to embrace life. And by life, I don't mean perfection. Life is when things go wrong, when the weather changes, when you rip your dress and fall down and it's in this very messy life that you met the love of it. So let it all happen and let me document it. I do promise that together we will make something altogether lovely and that it is my absolute mission to make you look like the best possible version of youself on your wedding day.
If you wanna win my heart, I like bears, coffee and conspiracy theories. And food. All the food.
Based in Iowa, but available worldwide.
