Can I tell you how amazing it is to get to be with people on the best day of their lives so far? The job of making wedding photographs is one of the most important and intimate tasks I undertake, and it is a privilege to be invited in to such a meaningful day in your life. And it’s not just the big wedding day moments that are important, it’s all the little in-between moments that we often cherish most--a squeeze of a hand from mom, a knowing glance exchanged with a Maid of Honor, or a stolen kiss with your new spouse when you think no one is looking.
My background in photojournalism lets me not just capture the main events and portraits of you and your family, but also lets me see and anticipate those most important bits of life between the formalities--and to capture your unique day as it was.
I live and work in suburban Philadelphia but am happy to travel to any shoot location.

Working with Melissa on our wedding day was an absolute joy! She thought of everything for our photos, easily wrangled our wedding party and family members throughout the day, and took stunning photographs that we will treasure for years. She was incredibly professional and prompt throughout the entire process, replying to our emails within an hour of us sending them and having our wedding photos ready for us to review within just a few days of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, she made sure to regularly check in with us and our family to make sure she was getting the photos we wanted. Our final photos were stunning, and Melissa even included some beautiful prints when she sent the USB. We would highly recommend Melissa, and are so happy we got to work with her.Sent on 11/29/2019

The PERFECT wedding photographer.
From our initial phone call to the delivery of our final photographs, Melissa exceeded every single one of our expectations. She was thorough, thoughtful, and made us feel so comfortable as we prepared for the big day. She coordinated every shot we wanted, got creative and photographed all of the beautiful details of our day, and helped us navigate freezing weather and a quickly setting sun with ease. We cannot recommend her enough.Sent on 11/30/2019

Talented and Friendly Photographer
I can't recommend Melissa enough! Right from the beginning, Melissa was responsive, friendly, and flexible. She made us feel at ease during the sessions and it really shows in our photos. Our engagement and wedding photos came out great and the turnaround time was much sooner than I expected. I would love to work with Melissa again for future occasions!Sent on 01/10/2020
