I started my Kansas City and Destination wedding photography business in 2011 with the idea that my images would matter…that they would move and “wow” my viewers. While I’m documenting this history of your engagement and wedding day, I’m carefully using light, emotion, and my surroundings to tell your story in a fashion that, years down the road, will be as timeless as the day they were captured.
MORE ABOUT MY PHILOSOPHY
She captured the sweet traditional wedding images (like posing with our parents) as well as silly candid moments throughout the day (like all the ridiculous dance moves from the reception.) She was very easy to work with and was incredibly friendly and laid-back, working hard throughout the hot day to capture our photos. We are so thankful that we chose Melissa!
We are so completely blown away by the quality of her images
Her work is outstanding and her personality is even better. She makes being in front of the camera so natural and comfortable. After seeing one sneak peak from our wedding pictures my husband said “she’s going to be worth every penny”, that speaks for itself. She captured our wedding day perfectly, and I couldn’t image working with anyone else on such a special day.
Melissa is absolutely amazing.
I'm not sure I can say enough good things about Melissa. She is not only an astounding photographer, which isn't difficult to see from her samples, but she is also a joy to work with. My husband and I were both a bit camera shy before our engagement photos (and he hates getting his picture taken anyway), and Melissa helped us ease in to our session and made us feel comfortable so we were enjoying ourselves by the end of the day! By the time we saw her again at our wedding we were naturals! And man did she go above and beyond at out wedding.
So basically, Melissa is wonderful.
When we saw our wedding photos for the first time, I cried because they were so beautiful. We are forever grateful that Melissa has given us so many gorgeous photos to treasure of our wedding day. She is passionate about what she does and it shows. All of her photos are amazing!
We hired Melissa as our wedding photographer over a year ago and it was the best decision ever.
Melissa and the second photographer did exactly what I had hoped they would do during our big day -- they captured the moments we did not realize we were experiencing in the moment AND they captured the moments we knew we would not remember and the moments we missed with some of our guests.
Choosing Melissa was the best decision we could possibly have made.
