BRINGING FINE ART TO EVERYDAY LOVE

With a deep-rooted passion for documenting life's most important moments, I understand that time is a thief and it's easy to let those moments slip away. That's why I am dedicated to capturing your story in an unscripted and authentic way, and providing you with a gallery that will withstand the test of time.

Together, we'll embark on a photographic journey that goes beyond traditional poses and forced smiles. Allow me to document your life's narrative with an authentic lens... capturing the raw and unfiltered nature of who you are and what your story looks like.

AN intimate & unscripted  EXPERIENCE

I go beyond traditional photography. With a deep understanding of the power of genuine connections, we create a comfortable environment where you can truly be yourselves.

KIND WORDS

WHAT MY CLIENTS ARE SAYING

" Creative, attentive, and show care in every single thing. "

We cannot say enough good things. We had engagement shoot photos and our wedding photography and are beyond obsessed. Every step of the way, they have made us so comfortable and excited for our wedding with them. I love their style of photos because it shows individual style in a classy and sophisticated way. They are so creative, attentive and show their care in every single thing they do. Communication is always timely and responsive, the quality of their work is beyond compare and their friendliness over the past year has meant the world to us during the wedding planning process. I normally hate my photos being taken but they have made everything so fun and comfortable that it feels like you're hanging out with your biggest hype people!

BEHIND THE LENS

Hello, I'm Melani, a mother, wife, and passionate storyteller. Although I was born in the captivating landscapes of Sedona, my formative years were spent in a little beach town in Southern Mexico, where I cultivated a deep love for vibrant culture and art.

 

At the age of 29 and shortly after the birth of my son, I found my calling as a full-time luxury wedding photographer with my creative roots firmly planted in Mesa, Arizona.

I wholeheartedly invest myself into each and every  wedding... often finding my inspiration in YOUR unique story, your emotions, and the landscapes and textures that unfold before my lens.

Beyond my passion for capturing love and art, there are a few other things that ignite my soul... a well-placed swear word, a crisp fall morning, freshly ground espresso, an absolute banger of a song, and the little everyday joys I have at home with my two boys.
