About  Mel 

Having me as your photographer entails a blend of professionalism + meticulous organization, all while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. My approach involves delving into your individual love story, ensuring that by the time your wedding day unfolds, you won't feel like you're being trailed by a stranger with a camera. Instead, you'll have a supportive friend by your side—someone to adjust your squash blossom, pray with you, soothe your nerves (+ mom's nerves too).

I don't just offer support on your wedding day- I also assist you in preparing for it with comprehensive guides, tailored questionnaires, timeline assistance, + overall support in every aspect. With nearly six years of experience in the wedding industry, I've accumulated a wealth of knowledge which I am eager to share with you.

My primary goal in capturing your wedding day is to ensure that it revolves around YOU. This dedication is evident from the moment you reach out to me via email, through careful planning to incorporate elements that matter most to you on your big day, + extends all the way to the delivery of your gallery. Each photo undergoes meticulous hand-editing to reflect your unique story, + I prioritize delivering your photos promptly. By limiting the number of weddings I undertake each year, I guarantee that you receive my undivided effort and attention.

What does it look like to work with me?

Hey, I'm Mel

I am so pumped you're here. I am a natural introvert (which I attribute to my homeschooling days), but have a quirky charm that will have you laughing in no time + yes I have been known to participate in the mechanical bull riding on wedding days. Working with me on your wedding day looks a lot like me jumping in to help button your dress, give you a last minute pep talk before your first look, wrangling your family for photos so you don't have to, keeping things running on time, + so much more.

My passion for serving couples in the form of giving them timeless photos to look back on took root in NW Oklahoma while in college. I currently reside in that same charming town and feel fortunate to be surrounded by the beauty of God's creations. This abundance of natural beauty has led many couples to choose to travel to me for their engagement sessions, seeking the unique backdrops I can offer.
Now, with over 5 years of experience in the wedding industry—somewhere only God could have lead me—I've discovered my true calling. I cannot wait to start discussing your vision for your wedding or session + have you in front of my lens!
