So after a decade of being a full time photographer I finally accepted the fact that I cant do anything simple to save my life! I’m all about making a session feel like an adventure. I want sessions to be full of things you love to do. I want to go grab drinks or ice cream at the place you went on your first date or have a picnic on top of a rooftop with your favorite foods and beer. I want sessions to be fun and light and full of dancing and laughing till your abs are sore the next day. I want you to look back at these images in ten or twenty years and remember this exact phase of your relationship, I want to tell your story and to make sure you are comfortable and confident every step of the way!

let's plan an adventure!

You are up for rolling around in the sand or playing in the water 
You think you're awkward in front of a camera or don't know what to do with your hands.
You have a bucket list of places in the world you wanna explore.
You are up for having random dance parties  on a rooftops or in a field
You see a puppy & it takes everything in you not to run up & cuddle it.
Your dress or outfit gets dirt on it, and you shrug.
You LIVE for the feeling of sunshine on your skin & wind in your hair.
You’re already screaming YASSSS WHERE DO I BOOK YOU?

"She truly becomes part of the family"

Bliss photography is hands down the best around. Melissa makes such a lasting impression on everyone she meets! She truly becomes part of the family. I used Bliss for my wedding years ago, and when my sister got married, I don’t think anyone felt the need to “price” or “shop around” for photographers. I hate to say that the quality of her work has improved over the years because my pictures are flawless, but the creativity and passion she exhibits in her work only grows. I don’t think I’ve ever seen 2 of her pictures look similar. She truly captures the couples personality in her photos. If it’s a lasting impression, a life time of memories , and attention to detail you want Melissa is your girl. Plus how many photographers notice if your drink is empty??"
