Welcome friend, my name is Melissa Jean

My journey into the world of photography began over 16 years ago when I first picked up a camera. The seeds of inspiration were sown by my beloved grandmother, who introduced me to the world of art. Her passion ignited my own. Choosing a photographer is an intimate decision, and I am honored by the opportunity to be a part of your moments. I look forward to connecting with you, understanding your vision, and creating images that resonate for years to come.

Melissa was an absolute joy to work with. She made us feel so comfortable and it felt like we were just hanging out with an old friend. She made my vision come to life and I couldn't be happier with the results from our engagement session. We loved working with her so much that we just knew we had to have her do our wedding next year as well. I could not recommend her more.
