BEHIND THE CAMERA

HEY THERE!

I’m Melissa, and I started this crazy journey in 2011 with the idea that my storytelling would eclipse standard wedding photography and move people through the art of photojournalism.  

My goal is simple yet unique. Tell YOUR story through real, raw documentary photography so that when you look back in 20, 30, 50 years, you’ll be taken back to those wonderful emotions you experienced on your wedding day.  

Whether your wedding is at home here in Kansas City, your fiancé’s home, or somewhere completely unique and adventurous, I’d love to be there with you to capture those intimate, beautiful, crazy moments you want to be preserved.

Real talk: We're a little bit different around here.

Different in that we emphasize the importance of candid, documentary photography instead of overly posed, fake moments and trendy editing.  Trends come and go, but the story we tell through our photography is what will last a lifetime.  We have one main goal; to capture YOU and the ones who've gathered together to celebrate your union.  All of your beautifully unposed and intimate moments, tears, laughter, hugs, and reception floor shenanigans; all of it deserves to be documented and kept forever.   In 50 years, these moments you may forget, or might have missed, are going to mean absolutely EVERYTHING to you and your family.  

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, in 100 years, will allow the viewers (your children and grandchildren) to relive the day as if they were there.

When you commission us to document your wedding day, you're not only hiring photographers, but trusted friends and confidents.  We'd be absolutely honored to tell your story.




I BELIEVE THAT RAW, EMOTIONAL, ARTISTIC MOMENTS HAVE A PLACE IN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY. 

I BELIEVE THAT BEAUTIFUL
MOMENTS SHOULD
BE CAPTURED,
TREASURED
