Master Photographer:

Hello there and thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Melanie and I was born and raised in Texas and have lived in Willis/Conroe area my whole life, except for that year in college when I lived in the dorms over in Aggieland. WHOOP! Then I decided to change majors from Civil Engineering to Photography, but Texas A&M didn’t offer a degree in it. Thus, I transferred to SHSU. Go Bearkats! Everyone always asks if I have kids, and I have a four-legged furbaby named Cookie. That shaggy dog has my heart. Anyways, I absolutely positively love photography!  It is truly my passion in life and I enjoy and eat up every second of it.  I love being able to capture your life through my eyes.  No, I was not born with a camera in my hands, but really began enjoying it in high school. I am up to any challenge photographically, so give me a call so I can shoot photograph you. 🙂

Associate Photographer:

Howdy y’all! My name is Nick, and I’m Melanie’s associate photographer and Fiance. We are excited and looking forward to our own wedding in October 2017. Now I’m finally starting to understand all the stress our brides have to go through for their wedding day. But we are enjoying every minute of it. I may have been born in the small town of Seguin, TX, but have always had a love for travel and excitement. I’ve been all over the world, and can’t wait to explore new places. Anyone interested in a destination wedding photographer? 🙂 After attending Texas A&M university, I became a firefighter before my heart found photography. I feel very blessed knowing that I’m able to do something that I truly love. Capturing moments and being able to turn them into meaningful and beautiful art is what drives me. Seeing the expression in a persons eyes when they receive their album and/or wall art is the best feeling a photographer can have. Let us tell your story in the most beautiful way possible.
