Hi I'm Melinda!!
I'm a Seattle-based (but always down to travel) wedding and elopement photographer with a love for all the wedding day magic, laughing out loud and good dance party. My top priority is to cultivate true connection with every couple, learn your story and create a comfortable one of a kind experience. We will have a blast say BYE to the awkward stiff prom poses and create authentic photos full of movement and true emotion that feel like YOU!
I have photographed a wide variety of weddings from intimate elopements to weddings with over 300 guests. My style has been described as natural, rich and full of light. I will go above and beyond to help you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout our time together. I can't wait to capture your love!
Sound perfect!?? YAY! Lets do this...say hi today and lets chat details!!

Melinda is absolutely amazing. She’s so kind and funny. It made getting professionally photographed very comfortable. My now husband and I are not pros by any stretch of the imagination lmao, but she made us look like we were. I’m so incredibly thankful for her guidance and patience. Especially with the ups and downs of 2020, I couldn’t have asked for a better human to be the one to photograph our special day. Thank Melinda for everything. I’m so glad I found you and was able to work with you! :)Sent on 11/21/2020

Like taking photos with your BFF
Melinda is so awesome! From the beginning, she was super easy to work with- friendly and flexible. She was reliable and on time when we had calls or meetings. My husband and I are both pretty awkward and hate getting our pictures taken, but Melinda put us at ease totally. She vibed with us right off the bat and joined in our silliness. And most importantly, she so clearly captured the fun and happiness of our wedding day in the photographs. I cannot recommend Melinda highly enough.Sent on 09/15/2020

Love love love melinda!
I can not express enough how much we loved Melinda & her second shooter that day (Gennevive).
Pre-wedding Melinda was an instant delight to communicate with. We had multiple phone calls where she answered every question and offered so much expertise and information I would never have thought of on my own. She was so friendly, warm and full of personality.
The wedding day itself was nothing short of an absolute dream & Melinda's photography played a big part in this. She was on time, constantly on the move taking photos & so so helpful. She stuck around longer than I would have expected her to capture our "golden hour photos "(which in June in Seattle is pretty dang late..). My entire wedding party + family/friends made endless positive comments on Melinda & Gennevive's approach, professionalism & awesome personalities.
They were just the ABSOLUTE freaking best to work with. I would choose her services over & over again.
Not to mention, after the wedding I had a friend go through a traumatic event and Melinda was so quick to reach out and want to support. She really cares - and it's like you're her friend by the end of your day.
Thank you so much Melinda !!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see our final products because I know they will be ridiculously perfect.Sent on 07/12/2019
