THE BLOG

Welcome TO

I'm Melissa. I'm a wedding and boudoir photographer based in Ottawa, ON. I live with my husband and 2 sweet and energetic boys in a small town outside of the city.  I'm a chocolate fanatic and I probably couldn't function without coffee in the morning.

Weddings

I met with Aley and Matt just before I left on my trip to Iceland in September. They told me all about their plans for their big day that would happen almost exactly a year from the day we met. They spoke about how, at first, they were thinking of having a country side wedding […]
