Want to get married at a beautiful venue with a wild party?
Want to elope on top of a Mountain at sunrise?
However you choose to celebrate your love, it should reflect who you are as a couple.
If you're cringing at the thought of being in front of the camera because you're terrified of awkward poses, you've come to the right place. I've got your back. My technique is all about prompting you to do and say things that will bring out the real YOU. I'm all about movement, being present in each moment together, and experiencing what the great outdoors can do for your soul.
My goal is to get to know you, so that I can create a wedding day experience unique to you. So in ten years when you look back at your wedding images, you'll remember why you were smiling. What he or she said to you to make you tear up. How your veil was so sweetly pulled out of your face for a kiss. How you laughed so hard you snorted. When you picture those memories, are you surrounded by a quiet forest of pines? A secret beach? A peaceful mountaintop?
Whatever you envision, i'm here for you. I am more than your wedding photographer, I'm your adventure guide, your planner, your genuine friend. Let me help you bring your wedding day dream to life.

Now its time to meet and get comfortable in front of the camera (I promise its not scary!) From there we move into finalizing wedding day details. From location scouting for your first look and/or portrait locations, to your custom wedding day timeline and family shot list- i'm here to help every step of the way!
After you experience the most amazing + emotional wedding day, you'll be receiving 10 Sneak Peek images within 48 hours. From there you will receive your online wedding gallery within 10 weeks! I personally hand edit every image in your gallery and take extreme pride in giving you my very best.
"Truly, words cannot express how wonderful our photos are and how much we love Mel. I know my fiancé was a bit apprehensive about the entire idea of engagement photos, but now he’s smiling ear to ear! Mel made our engagement shoot easy, fun, and natural. She is focused on making sure you have the best possible experience for whatever occasion you are celebrating. Now, I can't wait to get these printed and on our wall! Mel, thank you so much! We hope to see you again in just about a year. :)"
"Melody was engaging + fun & I could completely be myself around her as I got ready with my best girl friends. When it came time for our couple photos, she killed it. She captured one of the most tender, emotional moments I have had with my husband, she instructed us on how to pose without making us feel uncomfortable, she laughed with us & cried when my Grandpa & I cried. I honestly feel more as though she is a good friend than someone I hired to do a service for me at my wedding.
She captured the most beautiful light, trees, foliage & nature that our venue offered. She was patient in us trying to corral our large families, and she knew what friends to find to track us down. I could not have asked for a more perfect day & Mel’s talent, professionalism, promptness, patience & communication skills were the icing on top."
"I searched and searched for what felt like MY wedding photographer. After going through at least 50 photographers I stumbled across Mel and our decision was made, she was exactly what I was looking for! From our initial meeting over coffee through well after the wedding Melody’s professionalism, kind heart, and passion shined. She gave wedding advice beyond her photography and helped deal with sensitive issues like a pro. Our time with Mel during our engagement session was fun, laid back, and full of nature. My husband walked away talking about how great Melody is and how she’s perfect for capturing us. He was so impressed, which says a lot all together. The wedding day was a dream and Mel captured it perfectly and helped keep everything running on time. (With our giant family we even finished a few minutes early) Our videographer said she was so easy to work with and our bridal party/family couldn’t get over how sweet Mel was. I can say without a doubt the long search for my photographer was well worth the hunt! We tell all of our recently engaged friends about Melody and all she has to offer. Thanks Mel for making being in front of the camera so easy and for capturing flawless photos we will cherish forever!."
"Melody was AMAZING to work with! My husband and I took our one year anniversary pictures with her. The entire experience was so much more than I ever expected!"
"Melody came recommended through Facebook from another bride-to-be and once we saw her website and amazing work, we knew we needed to hire her! She customized a package to fit exactly what we needed and was very helpful throughout all the planning. She is very down to earth and gave us a lot of direction the day of, which is exactly what we needed to get the best shots. Our "teaser" photos are so perfect, we are dying to see the rest and can't wait to work with her again!"
"My husband and I found the most amazing photographer in the world. Melody is the real deal, she has passion for her work and does it so effortlessly, it is quite remarkable. She is adventurous and really goes above and beyond to get you what you want. We mentioned to her that we wanted to take photos outside somewhere maybe in a wooded area and what does she do, she gets a permit to get us up to the top of Blue Hills, MA and capture some of our greatest moments. We were worried about how we’d get up there, who’d drive us up, a limo can’t get up there, what does she do? She drives us up there!!! She is super organized and patient. We are so happy we went with her and feel so lucky to have found her. She also did our engagement shoot as well. Highly recommend! It really helps you on your wedding day to have a good relationship with your photographer!"
"Melody was an absolute delight to work with on our wedding day. From start to finish, Melody was super clear about the process and helped us feel comfortable and at ease immediately. I don't consider myself photogenic, and sometimes I lack confidence in what I should do in photos, and Melody just made everything feel natural and stress free. After our wedding, Melody gave us some great previews of what was to come, and our album of photos was ready right on time! We are so, so happy with our photos!!! Melody captured some beautiful candid moments and has a real eye for framing and composition."
"Melody is a great photographer! She captured our wedding day exactly how we wanted. We gave her our thoughts and ideas for our special day, and she came prepared. She even added in some very fun games to play which created some amazing, authentic photos! We will be using Melody's services again for sure. We also recommend Melody to everyone who is need of a professional and open minded photographer!"
