Go Outside, Get Messy, Be Adventurous.



The Experience:

A Toye bride can be summed up in a few words; she's wildly in love, fun, and adventurous. I want to capture you in a unique way, to make you feel as gorgeous as you are, and to have so much fun doing it. 

It all starts with your initial email (YAY!), from there, we will: meet over coffee (my treat of course); plan your one of a kind engagement session, discuss your wedding day timeline and share ideas about what you envision for your special day (and squash any fears you may have!). Then (the part you've been waiting for), the day you say "I DO." Isn't that exciting? 

Afterwards I will deliver your photographs in digital format, and perhaps capture your growing family a few years later. I'm going to be your best friend for the day; the one you spend the most time with, and you know what, we're going to have fun!

Hopeless Romantic,

Hi! I am Melissa or Mel, a wife and proud mom to two real babies and one fur baby. 

I believe life is an adventure, and that we all have our own adventure to live. I believe in getting messy, taking wrong turns, being spontaneous, and exploring new places. We're all on this earth for a short time and are so fortunate that we can document our lives in such a beautiful way. Our generation will be the first to have life captured in every possible form, and at every available moment. Just imagine what your legacy will leave, and what your great, great grandchildren will get to relive through your adventures.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
