Hi! I am so glad you stopped by!
My name is Melissa, and I am a professional wedding photographer in Winston Salem, North Carolina. From May 2019 until May 2020, I will be based out of Honolulu, Hawaii! My first love is God, for without Him, I can do nothing!
One of my favorite activities (besides photography) is to travel! From New York to Florida, or from Europe to the Caribbean, take me somewhere new (and let me bring my camera to boot!) and I will be a happy camper.
For as long as I can remember, the arts have always been a huge part of my life. Singing in church, painting, playing instruments, crafting, and photography all came naturally to me. After High School, I was faced with some difficult life decisions. Which love should I follow? I decided to pursue Music, and continued my education as a flautist. Upon graduating with my Music degree, I came to a place where the rubber met the road. It didn't take long to realize that photography was the passion inside of me ready to explode if I didn't give it an outlet; and it was then that this exciting career path was born. I started out photographing everything from kids to seniors to weddings and realized after a couple of years that weddings were my absolute favorite. Capturing the purest of love between a new husband and wife makes my heart soar!
Although I have a home base, I do travel for destination weddings and would love to hear from you! Contact me here.
