Embracing the Art of Photography

on a personal note

Based out of Kentucky, but never confined by it's borders... I currently call Elizabethtown home. I am a mother to three sons, 22, 25 and 26. They are the light of my life and my best moments have been the most simple of days with them. Motherhood is my greatest blessing. I am newly married, my husband is a chef and is an operating partner of Westen LLC based in Louisville and Elizabethtown. Our life consists of very busy careers and lots of traveling in between. We have a tradition of Sunday family dinners with our family and even incorporated our Sunday dinner tradition in our wedding vows. 

Being married to a Chef, I'm always exploring new places and indulging in culinary delights. My soul finds solace in being outdoors. Some of my favorite activities include paddle boarding, hiking, and yoga. I'm also a huge advocate for holistic living. I'm constantly working towards that harmonious balance between mind, body, and spirit. 

A passion for romance

I truly revel in the art of capturing the art of love and style on a wedding day. From the big events to those subtle moments that dance in between., documenting such an important moment in a family's history is such an honor and truly rewarding.

I enjoyed the entire day and was BLOWN AWAY with the results, I could not believe that it was ME!! I have worked with other photographers and I have never had an experience this flawless and easy!

I was introduced to Melissa through a work colleague as a “world class photographer” 

I would highly recommend working with Melissa, there’s no way you could be disappointed.

She brought each vision I had to life and even better than I ever could have imagined. I will forever cherish our experience and equally thankful for her attention to detail.
