Hi there!



Not only am I a Wedding Photographer, I am a wife and a mother to two little rugrats. I am a funny girl that laughs often and loves a good sense of humor. I enjoy dancing, glamping, and traveling. I don’t mind getting dirty and I love being outside. The things I am most passionate about in life are my faith, my marriage, and mentoring young teens. When not being a wedding photographer you can find me being a human jungle gym to my kids in my living room. I love sipping wine while watching re-runs of The Office and I can recite every line from the movie Mean Girls.

I’m also a travel blogger at Life Has Its Perks

Melissa is impossible not to love. She makes you feel like you are old friends within minutes of meeting her. She is a mama to 4 beautiful blondies and really has a heart for serving others.
