Hi! I'm Melissa

But, more even more amazing was Kimberly and Brian’s elegant country wedding. It was something out of a fairy tale, for certain. Kimberly planned the […]

Boulder Engagement Session – Mallory & Aaron

As a photographer, detail photographs are one of my favorite parts of a wedding day! I know there are some people out there who just don’t see the point in taking so many photos of shoes, jewelry, and flowers, but I think they’re an important part of your day. You spent a lot of time […]

How to get Amazing Detail Photographs

It’s hard to narrow down what my favorite part of my wedding day was. It was the best day of my life, and as such, is full of a million wonderful, amazing moments. Seeing my dad cry when he opened the gift I got him. Seeing my soon-to-be husband’s face as he saw me for […]

My Favorite Part of My Wedding Day

 7 years ago in July, I photographed my first wedding. And I had NO clue what I was doing. Literally none. I borrowed my dad’s camera and 2 of his lenses. I could not tell the difference between the 2 at all, and I remember switching them out and not even knowing what the difference […]

Cheesman Park Engagement Session – Nicole & Josh

Civic Center Park in Denver is my new favorite location! I “discovered” when I did Rachelle and Matt’s session a couple months ago, and I fell in love. The capital building and the courthouse buildings are so stunning, and make a gorgeous background for photos. I love the old doors on the courthouse! So ornate and beautiful! […]

Denver Civic Center Park Engagement Session – Marie & Peter

Talk about a photogenic couple!! Normally I hate the word photogenic. I don’t really believe that some people are photogenic and some people aren’t. I really do feel that it all comes down to who is behind the camera and if they’re taking the photo at the right angle to best compliment your features, and […]
