About the Guest
Melissa is a wedding photographer based in Vancouver, BC. Her approach to wedding photography is to capture her clients’ personality as a couple. She’ll get her clients moving, laughing, and having fun during their engagement session, and of course on their wedding day. Her style is photojournalistic with some direction in between. She works together with her clients to create artistic portraits that are unique to them, and that they will look back on and cherish for life.
After many years of documenting families, Melissa opened the door to wedding photography and was amazed and excited about the creative possibilities. She was an elementary school teacher for 6 years in addition to photography. She feels that her experience as a teacher has helped her as a wedding photographer in so many ways, whether it be directing large groups of people, helping her couples plan their weddings, or staying organized throughout the whole process. After making the decision to leave teaching, she studied photography at Langara College (Photography Certificate Program) and started her business in 2011. It has been an incredible journey so far!
