The highly anticipated wedding day can pass by in a blink, which is why it is so essential to commission an artist who will capture your wedding day in the style that you have always envisioned. I always recommend investing in full day wedding coverage, because you will never know what memories will be captured around you.
Melissa is absolutely amazing. My fiancee and I both have trouble with our confidence in front of the camera and Melissa had no trouble relaxing us and making everything feel natural. Her energy was so comfortable and she took the time to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and this special time. She was incredibly open to coming to a place very special to us and capturing our photos there. We couldn't be happier with the images and the memories we made there. Melissa has a great eye for light, colour and if I can be a little corny, capturing love. We can't wait to look at her photos for years to come.
"Her energy was so comfortable"
Do yourself a favor and book boudoir photos with Melissa! The rollercoaster of emotions leading up to the day all seem so ridiculous when in the moment she made me feel nothing but like a goddess. I felt as though I was able to reclaim, love & appreciate my body in ways I haven’t before! I was so empowered and liberated through these photos;
A truly amazing experience!
"A truly amazing experience!"

I love the person that you are and I appreciate your willingness to help women inspire other women to be just as amazing as you! We definitely need more people like you!!!!
"Melissa with White Lotus Studios was an absolute joy to work with! We loved having her as a part of our wedding day. She made taking photos fun and effortless and we could not have asked for more beautiful pictures. We got married back in 2019 and we still get compliments on how great our photos turned out. I'm so thankful that we trusted Melissa with our engagement and wedding day photos. She went above and beyond and even helped me with a wedding dress malfunction on the day of our wedding. We can't recommend Melissa enough! She has a keen eye for detail and a wonderful upbeat personality. We truly loved working with Melissa and we hope to have the privilege of working with her again someday!
"an absolute joy to work with!"
Melissa photographed our March 2020 wedding at the RIU Jalisco resort in Mexico, and we highly recommend her! Her photography style draws you in and makes you feel the emotion of the day/event she is capturing; the photos are very elegant, beautiful, and fun. She does a phenomenal job at marketing her products through her website and social media platforms, which increased her credibility to us. She offers a consultation service that allowed us to get to know each other beforehand and helped her determine what we wanted, so she could capture the perfect details (she’s very knowledgeable!).
Melissa assisted in keeping us on track and ensured we had what we needed throughout the day, on top of photographing us. It was so much fun working with her; we truly received a lot of value in having her photograph our destination wedding 😊
"she was so
Melissa did an amazing job with our photos and was incredible to work with the day of! She was very clear in direction for photos and really good with the kids as well. The journey with her from start to finish was seamless and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! We look forward to working with her again in the future.

HI, I'm Melissa. Most of the time you can find me behind the camera or planning a beautiful session with my couples, a boudoir babe or snuggling a newborn at my sister company Three Little Birds Newborns. I am passionate to the core about telling your story and capturing what I see before my lens. I love making each session unique and perfectly suited to the gorgeous human in front of my camera. I love to create gorgeous, light, bright, romantic and emotive portraits for my clients who believe that moments are fleeting and photographic art is for always. I want to know everything I can about you to help customize your experience entirely and make the very most of our time together.
I come alive while travelling and my heart opens the moment I smell fresh mountain air. Whether I am on the sandy beaches in the Caribbean or surrounded by waterfalls in the Rockies, the wanderlust is real. My connection to nature shapes my look and feel of my work and fills my creative cup all at once.
I crave connection with and between my couples. This unique trait allows me to truly tap into my guests and draw out those moments and inspirations to truly capture YOU, not just some pretty poses. I am unapologetically real and authentic, and honestly, not awesome at small talk. I go right to the depths and ask questions that make you think and dig deeper. Because I spend so much time with my couples through their planning stages and during their sessions, I grow close to my guests and they often become great friends as. continue to capture the various stages of their lives after the wedding.
When I am not snuggling with a newborn or capturing a couple's most anticipated day, I am working on my very many avenues of creativity. Whether it be creating new sets, props or dresses for my studio or planning my next epic creative session with my local small businesses, I am always creating. an be found on a yoga mat teaching or meditating, crafting or cooking an amazing vegetarian meal for me three amazing children. Because I have experienced the newborn, toddler, tween and teen phases, I can relate with you on so many levels and I know how important it is to capture all the phases of your life.
