About Melanie 



As a fine art portrait and wedding photographer based in Amherst Massachusetts, I travel throughout New England preserving memories and capturing my clients' stories with thoughtfully crafted, luminous and romantic imagery. It was through my BFA in fine art photography from the Hartford Art School that I developed my timeless and light-filled vision for my work. With an approach that combines documentary and fine art sensibility, cherished and joyful moments are caught in all their beauty.

Melanie was always prompt in returning emails and phone calls. Her obvious experience and organization were assuring.  We highly recommend her services to anyone in search of a professional photographer!
