Hey there!

I'm Melinda

I was born and raised in the PNW and I sum up that vibe with pride. I love being near the sea all summer and explore in the mountains whenever I can! I proudly wear socks with my Birkenstock's and grow lots of vegetables. I have a love for laughing out loud, beautiful light, tasty tea and believe anytime is wine time. Most days you can find me in the garden, dancing around the kitchen or dreaming up my next adventure. I've been married to my favorite adventure buddy for over TEN years (omg) and have two littles, Alder and Arrow!

"One of my favorite ways to spend my free time is mixing my passion for photography with my love of adventuring with my boys." 

"Stop your search, Melinda is the photographer dreams are made of! Not only does she take magical, beautiful photos, but she is also an incredible human!"

we were comfortable and had fun working with Melinda the whole way through! During our initial consultation, my husband and I let her know we had some reservations about being in front of the camera since we had never taken professional photos before. From the first minutes of our engagement shoot Melinda made us feel completely at ease by being her kind, confident and lovely self.

 "Melinda captured our       day so beautifully" 

"It is true what people say - the photos are one of the most special gifts from your wedding, they bring you back to the feelings of love and togetherness. We have countless photos we love from our wedding and are so grateful to Melinda for helping capture these moments."

Fun Facts

about me

If we could live anywhere in the world we would live in Hawaii...probably Kauai! We go as often as we can and love everything about the Island life. I photograph weddings and elopements on all the Hawaiian Islands and even offer discounted travel rates for weddings in Hawaii! ALOHA!

Our first project when we moved to our home was removing our front lawn and building an edible garden! Who needs grass when you can have free fresh food!?


Before becoming parents we were sailors! The cruise with your feet up and a beer in your hand type!! We owned sailboat and would sail around the Puget Sound and adventure into the San Juan Islands. We definitely hope to own another sailboat some day (hopefully soon).


I'd be honored

to capture your memories.

My number one goal (besides taking awesome photos) is offering every couple I work with an INCREDIBLE experience! Say hi today and let’s chat details!

"I cannot recommend her highly enough for your special event!"

"We loved every picture Melinda sent us and really felt we were reliving the wedding looking through them (which we've been doing almost every day since we got them). The shots are beautiful candid memories that we will treasure forever."
