My greatest joy as a wedding photographer is when I have captured the spirit of your wedding.I'm inspired by each unique detail. Always capturing the romance of soft light and the beauty of the colors and textures of your celebration.With intuition and experience I will anticipate and photograph the expressions of love, laughter, tears, actions and reactions as they naturally happen.My goal as your photographer is to establish a relationship based on trust and impeccable service. With talent and skill I will photograph your wedding in a professional and unobtrusive way.I'm also happy to make recommendations for my clients in regard to other wedding event professionals. I've worked with the best coordinators, hair, make-up, florists, etc... and am delighted to pass that info on to my clients.

My weddings have been published in Your Wedding Day Magazine, Santa Barbara Magazine, Inside Weddings, Wedding Celebrations, Santa Barbara Newspress and the Independent.

In 2011 there are two wedding coffee table books being published in which my wedding work will be highlighted, Southern California Weddings and Nico Designs.

I am a member of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International, Prof. Photographers of Santa Barbara County, Santa Barbara Event Professionals and the International Special Events Society.

I sincerely appreciate the time you are taking to look thru my portfolio and information. I'd be delighted to talk to you about your wedding and what I can do for you. Read less

Melissa and her team are so talented and easy to work with. Her photography style is gorgeous, full of light and love. Her experience made all the difference. She works pretty quick to get the shot which is GREAT because you always feel fresh in each photo and can get more creative and more for your time. My husband is not exactly comfortable in front of a camera but she made him laugh and feel totally at ease. Her energy is spot on, she was a dream come true to work with and our photos turned out AMAZING. I also liked that her and her assistant were never "in your face" or annoying and wanted to capture the natural beauty rather than something overly staged and were very comfortable working with my other vendors and at the locations we picked for our engagement shoot, first look and wedding.

Melissa was amazing! We had only 8 weeks to plan our wedding and she made the process so easy for us even though she wasn't even our coordinator. She helped with suggestions and our communication was always great. The day of the wedding she paid attention to all the details and we were very pleased. Her turnaround time for our photos was so quick. By far, I'd definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for quality work.

Melissa and her assistant Dimitri are wonderful! They are extremely professional and it was amazing how quickly they were able to get thousands of beautiful shots of us. They have a lot of experience and were able to easily handle it when my hair and makeup team took an hour too long in getting all the girls ready. We still ended up with lots of gorgeous shots! I was so comfortable with them and was able to let loose and have fun with the shoot (I'm not usually a center of attention kind of girl). They are truly the best!

From the moment that Chris and I met Melissa, we knew we would hire her. She is warm, friendly, knowledgeable, very professional, and it is obvious that she has a love and passion for photography and capturing the perfect moments. On top of all this, she takes beautiful, artistic photos and is really fun to work with! She did our Engagement Photos, a Boudoir session for me that I gifted to Chris on our wedding day, and our complete Wedding photos. Every step of the way, Melissa was reliable, dependable, and so easy to work with. Plus she has a great assistant who goes above and beyond to get the perfect shot! They both have a great eye and great taste and we couldn't be more excited about all the wonderful photos they took for us. We are so very happy we hired Melissa, and we can't wait to work with her again and to recommend her to friends.

Melissa was amazing! I love our engagement photos and our wedding photos. The first time we met I brought along my fiance (now husband), parents and brother. We all knew she would be the one we had to have! We had so much fun taking our engagement photos. She really captured our relationship. She is really involved at some points, which is great, but she also caught moments we didn't even know. We love those pics! Melissa made us feel comfprtable and that is exactly what we were looking for. I would definitely use Melissa again in a heartbeat!
