The MBP Wedding Experience

Your wedding day is a whirlwind of love, laughter, and a thousand little moments that tell the story of 'you'. That's where I come in. With a lens for the candid and an eye for the intimate, I strive to capture the essence of your special day in a way that feels as natural and spontaneous as the moments themselves. My approach is all about making you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, ensuring that every smile, tear, and tender glance is caught in its most genuine form.

Imagine flipping through your wedding album years from now, reliving the magic as if it were just yesterday. That's what I aim to deliver. From the nervous excitement of getting ready, the heartfelt vows, to the joyous celebration with friends and family, I'll be there to discreetly document it all, creating a timeless collection of images that reflect not just how your wedding looked, but more importantly, how it felt. So let's create something beautiful together, something that perfectly encapsulates the love, joy, and unique spirit of your once-in-a-lifetime celebration.



Capture the Essence of Your Love Story: Timeless ARIZONA Wedding and Engagement Photography That Celebrates Your Unique Journey

The journey to capturing your dream wedding begins with a simple hello! After browsing through my portfolio and feeling the connection with my work as an Arizona wedding photographer, reach out to share your vision. Tell me about your love story, your wedding day dreams, and what you envision for your wedding photography. This initial conversation is the perfect opportunity to get to know each other, ask any questions you might have, and discuss how we can turn the precious moments of your big day into lasting memories. Let's start this beautiful journey together!

1. Say Hello

2. book your wedding

It's an exciting time when all your questions have been answered and you're ready to make your wedding photography dreams a reality! Once you've decided to entrust me with capturing your special day, you'll then receive an email with your contract and a detailed questionnaire to help tailor the photography to your unique story. After signing the contract and paying the retainer, your wedding date will be officially reserved on my calendar. The balance will be due on the day of your wedding, ensuring everything is set for a seamless and stress-free experience.


3. consultation

Now, let's delve into the fun part - your consultation! Don't worry about squeezing another meeting into your busy schedule; we can complete your consultation through a few simple emails. The questionnaire serves as our guide to crafting a photography experience that reflects your personal style and desires. We'll discuss everything from the specific moments you want captured to the overall ambiance of your day. Whether it’s certain locations, styles, or any special aspects you want to include, I'm here to help bring your vision to life. You can be as involved as you like in the planning process. By ironing out these details in advance, we ensure that your wedding photography is a true reflection of you and your love story, creating images you'll treasure forever.

4. Engagement Session

The next exciting step in our journey together is the engagement session, a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know each other better and for you to become comfortable in front of the camera. Whether you choose a stunning outdoor setting that reflects your love for nature or a more controlled and creative studio environment, this session is all about capturing the essence of your relationship in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. These photos are not just about practicing for the big day; they're a celebration of your engagement and can be beautifully incorporated into your save-the-date cards, wedding invitations, or as a cherished keepsake. This session allows us to collaborate, creating images that truly represent your personalities and the unique bond you share, setting the tone for the incredible moments we'll capture on your wedding day.

5. WEdding day!

The wedding day is where your love story unfolds in all its glory, and I'll be there to capture every precious moment. We'll start with the anticipation-filled 'first looks', a beautifully intimate moment where emotions run high. Then, we transition to portraits, where I capture the essence of your bond, along with the joy and elegance of your bridal party and family. As the ceremony begins, I'll blend into the background, documenting those heartfelt vows, the exchange of rings, and the much-awaited 'I do', ensuring every significant moment is immortalized. As the day transitions to the reception, I'll be capturing the laughter, the speeches, the dances, and all the spontaneous moments in between. My goal is to create a visual narrative of your day, from the grand, sweeping moments to the subtle, tender ones, so that when you look back, you'll not only remember how your wedding looked, but also how it felt. It's a day of celebration, love, and joy, and I'll be there to preserve these memories for you to cherish forever.

6. your photographs

About six weeks following your unforgettable wedding day, you'll receive an exciting email from me: your images are ready! You'll gain access to your private online gallery, where you can view, download, and relive the beautiful moments of your special day. This gallery isn't just for you; feel free to share it with family and friends, no matter where they are. Now, the real fun begins as we transform these images into lasting keepsakes. Whether you choose from one of the carefully curated collections or opt for a la carte selections, there's a range of exquisite options to bring the magic of your wedding into your everyday life. Popular wedding products include bespoke albums that tell the story of your day, and stunning artwork for your walls, turning your home into a gallery of your love story. I'm here to guide and assist you in selecting the perfect pieces to commemorate your day. Together, we'll create not just photographs, but timeless works of art that you'll cherish for years to come.

For those who dream of an intimate and simple celebration, my elopement package is the perfect choice. Tailored for ceremonies with 10 guests or less, this package focuses on capturing the essence of your love in a more private setting. Without the inclusion of an engagement session, we dedicate our time to beautifully documenting the heartfelt moments of your elopement, ensuring that the simplicity and intimacy of your day are reflected in every image. This option is ideal for couples seeking a serene, personal, and memorable experience, where the focus is solely on the two of you and your unique bond.

We had an amazing experience. My girls had so much fun. They felt very comfortable. My oldest has autism and has a hard time with new places and new people. She was safe and at home at her studio and for the first time we got beautiful shots of her smiling and enjoying herself. Pictures came out amazing. We are so thankful. Thank you. We will cherish these photos for years. -Erica R.

Melissa took our family photos this summer and we were so pleased with how the pictures turned out! She photographed all 11 of us and took the time to do couples pictures as well as grandparent shots. She caught the real smiles of our children and captured the beauty of Granite Mountain as well! Her work is the perfect blend of professionalism and personality. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone! -Staci B.
