Hey friend! I am Melanie and I am blessed to photograph beautiful weddings and proud seniors in Coastal Georgia/South Carolina and anywhere you would like me to travel! (I have my passport ready & waiting on you to call!) Photographing your important life events is one of the joys of my life and I strive to make every client and their families feel not only comfortable but treasured.
I absolutely LOVE my job and am thankful for the opportunity to live out my dream every single day! I am an artisan and skilled professional photographer that is licensed and insured. I believe in consistently delivering my clients classic and timeless imagery.
With my warm & welcoming southern hospitality approach that allows my clients and I to get to know each other like old friends, I can’t wait to meet you! I love humor and look for opportunities to laugh and have fun but ultimately, I look forward to learning your story and will translate it into beautiful photographs for you to share for generations to come.
I understand that you can never get back precious moments- of the tear that is gracefully rolling down a Mother’s cheek as she watches her baby put on that graduation gown, or as she laces up her daughter’s wedding dress, the look of pure amazement on a groom’s face as he sees his beautiful bride for the first time. As a senior beams their huge grin as they holds their diploma in their hands for the first time. Or the joyful smile on a bride’s face after she plants that first sweet kiss on her new groom.
One day when your children and grandchildren look back through those photos of you and your loved ones from that most special day, I hope they'll smile, are intrigued by the way things were "back in those days", and desire a marriage like yours for themselves.
I am a born and raised South Georgia girl! (which is so obvious when you talk to me with my accent) Most days you can find me working behind my Mac while sitting on the reclining loveseat with our two very spoiled Boykin fur babies laying on my feet and Netflix on in the background (I have to have some kind of noise in the background; I don't like quiet). I am a wife to Robby, and Mama to 3 grown children, and an over the rainbow proud new Grandmom (aka Mel-Mel)! Plus. When I’m not working with incredible people like you, you can find me traveling and exploring new places with my husband. We are foodies and make it a point to never eat at chain restaurants when we travel! I love wandering the aisles of Hobby Lobby or TJ Maxx, shopping for Rae Dunn or anything the color kelly green, and grabbing a bite to eat at a favorite Mexican restaurant while eating all of the queso dip. I relish a good iced caramel latte and a medium-rare prime rib! We enjoy being outdoors and riding the pups on our mule (gas- not 4 legged) camping, kayaking, or just sitting around the fire pit on the back porch! I have recently embraced my love for orchids, and now have two that I am trying my hardest not to kill!
You’re embarking on investment in images that are guaranteed to become treasured possessions. I am so excited that you have found your way here and look forward to getting to know each other and capturing your unique story!
