You are the most beautiful people I know -- Book a photo shoot today and let me prove it to you!
Because I am formally trained as a photojournalist, my philosophy is that the most powerful images come from Pure, natural moments. While part of your photo coverage will include posed photos, it is equally important for me to make candid photos of the genuine joy that you get to live each day. It doesn't matter if that day is your wedding day or just a lazy Sunday in the park, all of my photo shoots receive the utmost care, creativity, and commitment to detail.
It is an absolute privilege to be a part of your life for even just one day -- the least I can do is immortalize your wedding or family portrait by capturing the spirit of your loved ones in beautiful images.
I live and work in suburban Philadelphia but am happy to travel to any shoot location.
When I'm not shooting photos, I'm studying for my masters degree, watching the Phillies, helping my husband remodel our tiny house, training for an upcoming distance run with my dog, or enjoying a bottle of wine in the back yard.

Melissa did the most amazing job as our wedding photographer! She went above and beyond and did everything we wanted. She was super attentive and very easy to get along with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding / engagement photographer in the area!Sent on 08/16/2019

Book with Melissa !
I cannot say enough good things about Melissa. When starting the wedding process I found it was hard to find a photographer who I “vibed” with. The second I spoke to Melissa, I knew she was the one I wanted to take my wedding photos. She was on board with all of my ideas, didn’t push us to do a “first look” like many other photographers we spoke to tried, and her previous work was amazing. Melissa did our engagement photos in 100 degree weather and they came out amazing. The day of the wedding she was a life savior in many ways. She brought clips to hang my dress up bc the hotel was lacking, she had a tide stick when my husband spilled red wine on himself, and even had pins to fix my dress. The photo process was quick, fun and easy(she is also good at controlling crazy bridal parties like mine). She took every picture I requested and they all came out amazing. The pictures are beyond what I expected and we couldn’t be happier. We also received the pictures back really quick. I highly recommend Melissa Kelly🥰❤️Sent on 06/07/2019

Incredible Wedding Photographer!
Melissa was an absolutely amazing person to have around on our wedding day, let alone photographer. My fiance/wife and I were a little nervous going into the engagement shoot, but within a couple minutes of meeting Melissa, that was all gone. She put us at ease almost immediately and made the afternoon feel comfortable and natural. Our wedding day on May 4th was no different. It was a very long day with a couple of different events and Melissa was there throughout the entire thing doing a wonderful job. She was able to get everyone organized and where they needed to be on a schedule. The photos from beginning to end came out beautifully, really capturing the emotion and excitement of the day. The final package she sent was of the highest quality, even superseding our expectations. I'd highly recommend Melissa as a photographer for any event and am so satisfied having worked with her.Sent on 08/03/2019
