Family Portraits, Engagements, & Weddings

Emotional Fine Art

“I can't quite describe how special it is when I am invited into the rituals of a couple, family, or a community shaping a life together. Photography, too, can be ceremonial, and a beautiful, sensitive way to celebrate the tenderness and enormity of feeling of you and those you love.”

Whether it’s your family, engagement, or wedding that you’re celebrating, Melissa is an attentive photographer who creates an experience for you and those you most cherish before the lens. You’re kids will love her, and she might even surprise you with a few songs! 


Her work is focused on smaller gatherings and the simpler side of life, where a subtle tenderness can be found.


She offers 30 minute, 1 hour, half day, and full day packages starting at $250. 


Melissa is passionate in making photography accessible and affordable to everyone, offering discounts to year round islanders and donating family portraits to support and fundraise for schools and charities. 


All clients receive a gallery of retouched, high resolution, downloadable, color and black &white photos, with individually hand-made prints upon request and advice for framing.
