Wedding — Abundant Life — Syracuse NY

Affordable, exceptional, and, loving. Melanie is the photographer you will want and the photographer you deserve on your special day. Discreet, professional, and brilliantly skilled in the shots and moments she was able to capture within the flexible timeframe we had her (and her partner!). Sydney and I can’t thank you both enough, Melanie, for being a part of our day. It was a privilege and pleasure to be your first wedding of the 2024 season! We will be recommending you to our family & friends for all types of photography needs moving forward. Thank you, again!! And here’s to a much successful season of shoots!

Intimate backyard wedding captured beautifully!

For our intimate backyard wedding Melanie and her second shooter took so many great photos without intruding on our day. She arrived early and stayed a little longer to make sure she got the shots she and I wanted, and she produced beautiful work. I’m so grateful we picked Melanie. We also live 6+ hours away but Melanie set up calls and met with us when we were in town so we felt comfortable.

Incredible experience!

From our engagement photos to the wedding day, Melanie made the process stress free and fun! She listened to what we wanted and were hoping to capture from our day, which allowed us to just enjoy our wedding and not worry about missing any special moments. I could not have asked for a better photographer!

Melanie Basile
Main Photographer/Owner

Starting off my photography career with my first wedding in high school, I knew I had found my passion. I grew up with a father that worked as a wedding photographer for the Syracuse area in the early 2000’s. So my whole life, in some way or another, has been involved with photography.

Working along side my dad since 2013, I have worked over 100 weddings in my career to date. Now I am starting my photography journey on my own since my dad is retiring from the business.

Assistant Photographer

Melanie is my daughter and before helping her with weddings, I had my own business 'Basile's Framed for You Photography'. Even before that I worked doing over 60 weddings a year with Fragola's Photography in the early 2000's. I started working weddings in the 70's and have well over 500 weddings of experience all resulting in happy couples.
