Hi, I am a San Diego Photographer! I love to travel! I am originally from Peru, but grew up and am based here in San Diego. Love the outdoors, whether it's hanging at the beach or getting in tune with nature.
Ever since I was little I always had a camera in my hand; I love documenting events and expressions. Feel free to reach out and let's chat about how I can capture your memories!
PS - I promise to make you laugh!

Best photos and experience!
We had the best time at our engagement photo shoot and I can truly say that Melissa went above and beyond to make our engagement photos perfect. We loved our engagement photo session so much we asked Melissa to come to our engagement party to take photos too! We are so happy with our pictures from both our engagement photo session and engagement party and couldn't be happier with the overall experience.

Melissa's work is magic!
We are so happy with Melissa :D she was one of the highlight of our day. She has a bubbly, fun personality which made us super comfortable posing in front of the camera. She was very intuitive & great with giving out instructions, has great eyes in finding good spots to take pictures -- we are very happy with the result. Everything was handled professionally, we had a contract with DocQuest, she arrived early to the venue and pictures was uploaded within 36 hours! Melissa, you are the best and I highly recommend her for your wedding.

Smoking hot wedding photos by Melissa Montoya
I am a professional destination wedding planner in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and have worked with many amazing photographers over my 14 year career. However, when my own daughter decided to get married in Coronado, California, I wanted to hire a local photographer who knew the area and would have tips for us for this specific location. After careful review, we selected Melissa Montoya and it was the best decision! She is amazing!!!! Her energy is so positive and creative. From the beginning she understood my daughter Grace's vision. She and her fiancé, Caleb, wanted a more moody, editorial look for their wedding photos, with more focus on their couple's photos than group shot type photos. They got exactly what they wanted, and the photos are gorgeous, romantic, sexy, and truly lovely! Every photo reflects the deep love Grace & Caleb have for each other. Not only was Melissa's attitude amazing, but her knowledge of local venues for the type of shots that the couple wanted helped us out so much! She is a truly creative professional who reflected Grace & Caleb's wedding day in a truly beautiful way.
