Hi! My name is Melinda and I am a Wedding Photographer based out of the Hudson Valley. I married my best friend in 2020 and being married has made me fall in love even more with photographing weddings. He is my biggest supporter and I am truly lucky to have him. We enjoy spending our time going out on dates and watching our two children grow up.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. I feel honored and privileged to capture the love between you and your partner. On your wedding day, I help you feel comfortable and confident by guiding you through natural posing to get the classic images you are looking for.

I believe in relationships. trust, loyalty, and honesty. These are values that are important to me. As a mom, I hold close my relationships with my family and my kids. They are everything to me and are the reason why I went into photography.

I want you to be yourself - comfortable and relaxed, as I capture moments that unfold naturally. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life; I want to keep things light-hearted and enjoyable so that you can focus on the intimacy and joy of your special day.

I fell in love with being able to capture one of the most important days in your life and show the raw emotion of what brought you together - love. It's the moment you, your children and your grandchildren will look back on and I want to capture those feelings with classic photographs that tell your unique love story.

Whether one year, five years or ten years from now, every time you look at your wedding photos, I want you to relive those memories and feel like you’re getting married all over again! The tears of joy, the laughter, and the love you shared on your wedding day and every day after is what you will see and feel through your photographs.
