"We felt so comfortable and we will cherish the photos she captured for us forever."

Melanie captured our day so perfectly and working with her was a joy. We had a sunrise elopement at tunnel view and she was there waiting for us at 5:30am! I loved how she just brought herself and her two cameras, that is ALL she needed. She knows the best spots and even would pull over on the road if she saw a good photo opportunity. She knew the national park very well which helped so much the day of (especially since it was our first time in the park!) We love the pictures and so do our families. I would recommend melanie for any elopement or even just a quick photoshoot! We look forward to working with her again in the future. Thank you Melanie!
