I'm Melissa!


I am a mom of three beautiful little girls and I have a pretty amazing husband who I am sure never thought he would be living in a house with 4 females (he grew up in a house of 4 boys)! We continually work on little girly things like coordinating outfits and styling ponytails, but when it comes to the important things like playing with the kids and making delicious dinners...... he is incredible! Cooking is something I terribly need to work on! Just ask my sister and my mom, they are continually in awe at how UN-amazing my cooking skills are! :)


I am originally from the East Coast and was transplanted to Ottawa shortly after university. We both got federal jobs and I was doing my accounting designation while we paid off debt. The idea was to stay for a few years and move back home....... we finally made that move this year and just moved back to the Halifax area!

I am a member of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) with accreditation in both Wedding Storytelling and Child & Infant Portraiture.


We are a husband, wife and sister team. I get to work with both my husband and sister, how amazing is that! We also include two other associates and we have been photographing weddings, newborn babies and families for over 7 years. We have a lot of experience in making sure that you are comfortable, relaxed, and excited to be photographed. We want nothing more then for your time with us to be fun and relaxing for everyone. This is why we coordinate all photography for your session or throughout your wedding day.


Since we work as a team, we can focus on capturing all of the formal shots that you would like, in addition to those special candid moments. The end result is a complete package that accurately and fully represents you. It makes us very happy to think that couples and families will forever be able to look back on their day through the services and products that we provide.


We offer a variety of collections to suit your vision. We are with you from start to finish so that by the time your wedding day or newborn/family session arrives we are comfortable with each other and with your vision.


If you are interested in learning more about what we have to offer or are a small business looking for information on our workshops and mentoring, please hop on over to our contact page and send us a message. We can also chat in person at the studio or via phone/email if this is better for your schedule.


We can't wait to hear more about your wedding day or family milestone. While our summers are always very busy with weddings, we always reserve some time for newborn and family sessions as that is what our business was originally founded on and we truly love these sessions as well!


Also, if you would like to know more about us, please ask! We love to chat and get to know our couples and families and don't mind at all if you would like to know more about us!
