Let me Guess…
You’re about 15 tabs and three whiskey sours deep into your search for wedding vendors, and you’re about ready to ditch it all and run off to Vegas. Before you do, let’s chat. And if Vegas is still calling your name, your girl Mel is always down to travel!
YOU’VE SAID YES…
Yes to your ride or die, yes to your forever Friday Night Date, but it’s time to say yes to who will capture the love and fun you share. Beautiful photos are always part of the package, but I throw in my expansive knowledge of 00’s hip hop and dance moves for free. If you love happy hour, great food, and saying yes to new places, then your search is over!
YOUR TIME IS IMPORTANT.
And you have a limited amount of it…work, spending time with bae, attempting a social life, not to mention planning your wedding day…Let me help you get some of that time back by being as transparent as possible throughout your booking process!
WHO'S THAT GIRL?
just a lover of craft beers, cocktails, and red wine
It’s Mel! I’m that girl.
Craft Beer Snob. Pizza connoisseur.
Mimosas and donuts enthusiast.
Probably found dancing in my kitchen with a glass of wine while attempting to clean the aftermath of my messy cooking.
SO, WHAT'S IT LIKE WORKING WITH ME?
“From the moment we messaged her, she was so friendly and responsive, she was the easiest of all of our vendors to communicate with and plan. Throughout the wedding planning process she kept in contact with us, learning more about us which made our wedding day so much more laid back and at ease! We were able to get all of the photos we dreamed of .. and they turned out AMAZING!!”
Ohio Wedding Photographer
Local brews, brunch, and red wine are a few of my favorite things. Sound like you? Let’s connect! Not local? I’m always down for an adventure!
Ohio based Destination Wedding Photographer servicing the surrounding areas of: Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Athens, Chillicothe. Available for Louisville, KY, Charleston, WV, Arizona, and destination weddings!
It’s Mel! An uprooted city girl, working on growing some country roots. Wine lover, 00’s hip hop devotee, with a passport at the ready to travel where the party is at. I’ve never met a bad mood I can’t dance my way out of with the help of a glass of wine and Usher or Cardi B playing through my speakers.
I will laugh with you and cry with you. I will tear it up on the dance floor when Nelly comes on, and I will make sure your photos share the entire story of your wedding day. If brunch or cocktails are your thing, then chances are I am too. I’m here to party with you just as much as I’m focused on capturing the photos and connecting with you. Because isn’t that what it’s all about? Celebrating your love with rad people, great food, and a party worthy of forever?
MEET MY FAVORITE PERSON!
He’s my travel buddy, fellow food critic, and my bright light on a gloomy day. He gets his sense of humor from me and probably most of his dance moves too. It’s because of Christian that we live in Ohio. I never felt the need to plant roots in any one place, but my son has grounded me, teaching me that growth happens when you slow down and let yourself be nourished by the love of family and friends.
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, LET ME BE YOUR SOMETHING BLUE!
It’s a tradition of mine to wear blue for every wedding!
IT’S GETTING HOT IN HERRE
Turning up for your wedding means being there for all the important moments. From mimosas in the morning to Manhattans in the evening, I am there for the whole party.
MY "SOMETHING BLUE" COLLECTION
You are worth the very best. Your wedding deserves an experience that matches the love that you share, and you deserve a photographer that knows how to provide that. You both deserve photographs that will have you walking down memory lane for the years to come, taken by someone that remembers where you first met. A wedding photographer that remembers you love that particular wine, or that a good Old Fashion is your drink of choice. You deserve to be remembered. You deserve a true experience.
Details matter, but the ones that matter most are the ones that make you, YOU. Details aren’t just about wedding day baubles. It’s about sitting with you as you plan and helping you sort out wedding ideas. It’s about grabbing drinks together when the planning stress gets to be too much, and about celebrating all the moments that come after, like buying your first home and adopting that adorable new fur baby. For me, this is never just photos.
It is a full on wedding experience.
The average starting collection for Ohio based weddings is $2,800.
The average destination wedding collection begins at $4,300.
The more I got to know Tyrion, the more I realized how much we had in common. (That random fact about me is for free. – RIP GoT)
