About Melissa Cervantes Photography

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 Jesus, bears, coffee and conspiracy theories. And food. All the food.

Based in Iowa, but available worldwide.

XO,

Melissa

    Melissa is the best!

    Melissa is SOO much fun to work with! Her photography skills are just breathtaking. I am someone who gets shy when taking photos but she made us feel so comfortable! I highly recommend her!!

    Coffee date photo session

    We had a mini session photo shoot with Melissa that turned out great! We had such a fun time and ended up with some really candid fun pictures that showcased our love. It was so nice to get updated pictures of just us as a couple.

    Best Decision Ever :)

    From the very start of the planning process, Melissa made everything simple and straight forward. She was there for us every step of the way from taking the most beautiful winter wonderland engagement pictures to helping plan out our wedding day timeline. I cannot rave enough not only about our truly amazing wedding pictures, but for her overall professional demeanor making us feel comfortable in front of a camera (My hubs and I definitely were nervous about that part). We are truly lucky to have found her!
