About Melissa


Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m Melissa, a fine art wedding photographer based in Colorado and California, but I travel all over the US and also photograph weddings in New York and the Pacific North West areas as well. I absolutely love what I do and am so excited I get to work with so many cool, fun couples who really care about photography and who believe love is a big deal. I find myself drawn to fun, down to earth people who want their wedding photographer to capture their genuine love for one another and the real emotions of the day and not a lot of awkward poses.
I feel its SO important to have photographs that remind you not just of all the details, but also the real moments you shared with the ones you love and all the fun you had on your wedding day. Looking back at your wedding photos should be a time to relive your day and remember not just how beautiful you looked but also how blessed and loved you felt.

Okay – but really who am I? Well, I was born in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, New Zealand. I was raised in a circus travelling around Australia and as a little girl dreamt about running away to join a normal suburban family. I moved to England in my teens and lived in London for eight years, spending a lot of my time exploring Europe. As a result I have a weird patchwork accent from all the beautiful places I have lived. Europe is where I first started my love of photography and spent many hours honing my skills as a film photographer simply for my own personal enjoyment. When I came to visit America in 2007 in search of mountains and adventure, little did I know I would fall in love with this gorgeous country & stay. I now proudly call it home! I also didnt know how much people would love my photography here. All my hard work and passion has paid off and I am so blessed to be able to travel the world photographing weddings. My work has taken me back to Europe again as well as Hawaii, Dominican Republic, New York, California and Colorado; and  has been featured in Bride, Destination I Do and The Knot magazines as well as Green Wedding Shoes, Style Me Pretty, Ruffled Blog, Wedding Chicks and other wedding blogs. I really feel like I owe all these blessings to my beautiful brides and grooms that trust me to create the tangible memories they hope to share with their future children! Thank you for letting me share your special day with you! I travel all around the world shooting weddings, no matter where you are, if you love my work then please drop me a line to chat more about your wedding plans: hello@happyconfettiphotography.com
