“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” Karl Lagerfeld

I love my job. While photographing your wedding, I am able to capture and document some of the most important and beautiful moments in your life. My photography focuses on encapsulating your stories and the memories you share with the people you love most. I absolutely adore spending time with couples on their wedding and engagement days. Working together with my clients is one of the more incredibly complex yet inspiring and rewarding aspects of my job; the unique dynamics of each wedding can be demanding but I genuinely value the relationships I develop with my couples. It is what keeps me invigorated and why I love doing what I do.

My style is clean and simple. With any wedding, I strive to seek out and capture all points of view. I love using natural light, playing with color palettes and really bringing out the patterns, textures and details unique to your wedding day. I feel so lucky to be a photographer—I am allowed the opportunity to help tell your story and beautifully preserve these special moments for many years to come.

Having lived in Germany, Seattle and New York, Melanie has finally planted her roots in San Francisco, the city famous for it’s gorgeous city hall and famous hearts left behind. This quiet observer has the gift of putting her clients at ease in front of the camera and seamlessly manages to capture each couple's chemistry with every move, smile and kiss. Her work has been featured in Brides Magazine, The Knot and Stye Me Pretty.
