I specialize in documentary wedding photography for modern couples who want something a little different.
I help my couples feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera so that it's easy to create elegant and romantic photos. I will never put you in strange forced poses. I create work with a natural but editorial feel to it.
My belief is that effective documentary photography shows how a wedding day naturally unfolds and doesn't force moments or interactions. It captures the little details and gestures that help you remember how the day felt.
I am an American living in Switzerland and photographing weddings all over Europe. I love meeting new people and learning how to make them look their best in photographs, and how to honestly show their unique personality as a couple. My work is romantic, natural, and classic.
I'm really looking forward to hearing from you and learning about the beautiful day you are planning!
" Melissa was such a pleasure to be around, and she directed us in a way that made us comfortable in front of the camera and created organic moments. Those genuine emotions really shine through in the photographs - we love them all!"

Melissa did a fantastic job shooting our wedding. She captured the little moments that are essential to remembering your special day. So you're gently directing yourself on how to move naturally and postion your body. We love looking back, they are amazing and timeless!
Es war sehr angenehm, mit Melissa zusammen zu arbeiten. Die ganze Planung der Aufnahmen war einfach und professionell, man fühlt sich sehr wohl. Die Fotos sehen wunderbar, wie aus einem Hochglanzmagazin aus - ich empfehle Melissa gerne weiter.
