Available to travel for domestic & international photoshoots & weddings

Let's travel together

If you're an explorer who craves unique architecture, sunrises and sunsets over sprawling coastal waters, safe hikes leading to gorgeous views, and nearby towns filled with culture and delicious food -- I'm your girl! My Domestic U.S. and International Destination engagement, elopement, and wedding collections include location idea-mapping, additional sessions that you won't see in local collections, flexible timelines, and fully customizable add-ons. The best part: you won't have to be responsible for getting me there... I'll take care of it.

Within the shots she captured, I can feel all the emotions I felt that day

If you’re looking for a photographer that will allow you to re-live moments that only your heart can describe, HIRE MELISSA NOW! My proposal was a surprise to me while vacationing in Puerto Rico with friends and I am so grateful to be able to re-live the moments. Within the shots she captured, I can feel all the emotions I felt that day. Her attention to details and ability to capture genuine candids is why you need to hire her! I cried happy tears instantly. Months later, my fiancé and I still love going through the photos, retelling the beautiful chaos of the day.


We for sure have our forever photographer

Melissa is AMAZING! We had spoke to soo many photographers and none were excited as she was when we told her we wanted to shoot at the Grand Canyon. Im really shy person and don't like taking photos but she made us feel at ease and took the most beautiful photos.10 out of 10 would recommend her! We for sure have our forever photographer.


I'm already eager to schedule our next photo shoot!

When I tell you she is the BEST at what she does, I absolutely mean it. Our favorite part of working with her (besides her becoming part of our family) was totally trusting her to work her magic. She truly has a gift and is so talented at what she does. Not only did she help us feel comfortable, but she helped us feel so confident in front of the camera! We just got married in September and I’m already eager to schedule our next photo shoot! We love Mel & StellaShotsMedia and are SO BLESSED to have had her photograph our engagement photos and wedding day. We’re so happy that we get to have her capture all of the big, exciting moments in our future! Don’t even hesitate or overthink- Just choose her as your photographer and you won’t ever regret it!!!!
