The highly anticipated wedding day can pass by in a blink, which is why it is so essential to choose a photographer who will mesh well with your vision and capture it 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. I want to tell your whole wedding day story!
We are in awe of photos you captured on our wedding day. We keep going through them trying to decide our favourite which is an impossible task.
Thank you so much for spending our special day with us. I can't say it enough, you truly are a master of your craft! Each photo is beautiful and a piece of art.

Melissa was amazing to work with for our wedding. She understood our vision and delivered an amazing end product. I am so in love with our photos, and Melissa is such a dedicated and caring individual. She was flexible and supportive during all the curveballs rescheduling during the pandemic threw at us, and was just overall so much fun to work with. We would highly recommend White Lotus for a wedding photographer!
"i am so in love with our photos!"
We reached out to book Melissa for our wedding because we liked her portfolio. We ended up getting so much more! From start to finish, Melissa was so incredible to work with. She put us at ease, was fun, professional, and honestly a great help on our wedding day. The photos from our wedding are so beautiful, and really captured the feeling of the day. We will absolutely be using Melissa for everything we can moving forward!
"really captured the feeling of the day"
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!"
THANK YOU!!! These are so gorgeous!!!! I had a blast and you are truly amazing!!! Your kind heart, no judgement zone, and the body positivity doesn’t even begin to describe your gold soul!!!! 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.
"the journey was seamless"
Melissa was my biggest cheerleader. I have never thought of myself as feminine or overly sexy until I saw my photos. They are so tastefully done and I couldn't believe how good I looked. The whole experience was empowering and I gained so much confidence. What I intended to be a gift for my husband turned into something equally as great for me, which I wasn't expecting!

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 all about telling your story and capturing what I see before my lens. I love making each session unique and perfectly suited to people. I love to create light, bright, romantic, and emotive portraits for my clients who believe that moments are fleeting and photographic art is for always. I wait to know everything about you to customize your experience entirely and make the very most of our time together.

My dimple. Just kidding...the fro. Her name is Marjorie.
Favourite part of my craft:
Snuggling newborns has to be the top. They just smell too good. I do love when past wedding couples come back with their babe.
I encourage all guests to throw out any notions of "not-enoughness" and allow me to show you what I see. Let loose, play, emote and show yourselves and most importantly, bring your heart...I can't wait to meet it.
