"What we find in a soul mate is not something wild to tame, but something wild to run with."

for the adventure seekers

"To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to, rather than what we are separate from."

-Terry Tempest Williams

a glimpse into my

Matt + Cait

“Our wedding day was truly perfect. The photos Melissa took captured every moment of magic, romance, joy and LOVE. She knew exactly which moments were special, even the moments that at the time we did not know would mean so much. Melissa gave us the greatest gift of all on our wedding, photos that perfectly captured the beauty and love of our magical day. She was amazing with the guests and wedding party. Instead of one more thing for us to organize she was a HUGE help on our big day.”

Nate + jen

“We have had plenty of experience with photographers in a variety of settings and can honestly say that Melissa provided one of the best, if not the best experiences for us. We had the pleasure of having Melissa photograph our wedding and newborn photos - two vastly different settings, with two very similar outcomes. She makes taking photos comfortable for those of us that feel awkward in front of a camera. Everything felt natural and safe, allowing us to truly enjoy the experience itself rather than having photos take away from the moment. We can't wait to have her share in the next phase of our lives!”
