“Working with Melissa was such a blast! We had never met her before and within minutes we were giggling and I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. We had so much fun and didn’t even realize how much time was passing! The whole ride home my fiance and I were talking about how much fun we had and how we wish we could do it again!” – Diane & Andy

Our portrait collections give you flexibility to choose what you want and get what you love! They include a mix of product options and digital files to satisfy any client’s needs. A $500 booking retainer is required to secure your session. My clients typically invest $850-$2950 in custom wall art (framed prints or canvas gallery wraps), albums, print boxes and digital files.
To get the most out of your session, be sure to schedule 2-4 weeks in advance. In order to create a more personalized experience for my client I only accept 1-2 portrait bookings per month.
Custom Wall Art:
Instead of looking at empty walls in your home wouldn’t you rather see a photo of you and the ones you love laughing and smiling? I specialize in creating gorgeous custom wall art for your home. We will work together to create the perfect collection of images to hang on that empty wall.
Products available for purchase include Fine Art Gift Prints with hand torn edges, beautifully Framed Prints, modern Gallery Wrapped Canvases, custom Linen Albums and of course Digital Negatives.
Working with Melissa was such a blast! We had never met her before and within minutes we were giggling and I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. I left it up to Melissa to find a good place for our engagement shoot (just told her we like country-like stuff) and boy did she deliver! The photos in the field were just what we were hoping for! We had so much fun and didn’t even realize how much time was passing! The whole ride home my fiance and I were talking about how much fun we had and how we wish we could do it again!
Melissa had the preview picture up sooo fast and also had such a fast delivery on all the photos. When they came out we were WOWed by how amazing they looked! Not only did we have a great experience (never a bad thing to be forced into each other’s arms for a few hours) but now we have beautiful photos to display in a guest book and decorate our house with! When my friends and family looked online, the only thing they could talk about when they saw me was how much they loved our photos! We even decided (after the session) to book Melissa for our wedding and we couldn’t be more excited! I know she is going to take even more beautiful photos and be an integral part of completing our wedding day!

“My fiance and I do not live in the same state, as he is currently stationed in Virginia and I still live in Indiana. We knew that we wanted to have engagement pictures taken, but were not sure if we could find someone to take them and do a quality job. Lucky for us, I stumbled across Melissa’s webpage and immediately got into contact with her. She was so helpful in finding a location for our pictures and providing tips for clothes. On the day of our shoot Melissa was just as wonderful as I hoped. She knew John and I for less than five minutes before she began snapping pictures and yet she managed to capture our personalities perfectly. I could not be happier with the way our pictures turned out and I wish it could have been worked out to have her come to Indiana for our wedding and photograph that special moment as well. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a photographer, especially engagement pictures!”

Melissa is the definition of over-delivering when it comes to her service. I wish more people ran their business's in the same manner. She truly understands how important these photos are to you as a bride. With all the time and effort you put in to planning, it is nice to know that your photographer is putting in the extra effort to make sure you are overly satisfied with your finished product.
