I'm Melissa, a Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer based out of Chicago & Michigan. But my camera and I LOVE to travel all over the country and world!!


I'm a self-proclaimed Momtrepreneur with a 6-year-old daughter and sassy wiener dog! (Who are we kidding, they are both sassy!)


I'm married to my best friend & loving

nerd of a husband for almost 10 years! 


I've been capturing weddings since 2008 and love that I get to be apart of one of the most important days of 2 people's lives! 


Enough about me! I want to hear about you! I'd love to chat and hear your story

"Melissa is outstanding! She photographed my sister and my wedding three months apart, with completely different styles and times of year, and she gave us both absolutely stunning photos. She is a fun and kind person to work with, she takes time to understand not only what types of photos you need, but also your personalities and your family dynamics that might influence the day and the photos. She was easy going, flexible with what we needed, had great time management fitting in first looks and photos before the ceremony, and always felt like a welcome guest who just happened to being taking our photos!"


"Melissa is AMAZING!! Her talent in photography and creative eye are special gifts that really blessed us on our wedding day and her personality is so genuinely kind. We were so honored to have her capture everything that we wanted to remember! I couldn't be more pleased with the images and the overall experience."
