My Philosophy

Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end, and your photographer is a huge part of that experience. It should be enjoyable and relaxing! I am not solely a transaction or just a picture taker-- I am fully invested in your story and your day. I strive to keep personal moments uninterrupted, unscripted and authentic. I also believe in stepping up to organize situations that require more direction and have the discretion to distinguish between the two. I believe that the small details and personal touches are what makes your wedding story so unique. I understand that not every couple is super outgoing and overly joyful nor wildly serious and romantic. I believe in documenting your relationship and personalities in their purest form with fine art and a storytelling approach.

My process

To ensure the best photographic experience for my couples, I like to make sure we are a good fit for each other. After booking, I love getting to know my clients through an Engagement session. Witnessing your relationship dynamic and getting to know your personalities only equips me to better serve you through the wedding process. It's also very important for the couple to experience my shooting style to better prepare you and build confidence for the big day! When the wedding day arrives, my couples feel more like friends than clients. This creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography, which yields the images you long for.


Attention to detail

When it came time to pick a Photographer for the most important day of my life, I knew exactly who I wanted. These are the photos you will have forever, so picking the right photographer is extremely important. Melissa's patience, ideas, and attention to detail is impeccable. Each photo takes me back to the exact moment of what was taking place, and I feel all of the same feelings I felt that day every time I look at our photos. Melissa was able to capture everything I asked, and then some.

Why Invest?

Your first decision as an engaged couple is to set priorities for your wedding planning. Investing in a gorgeous gown, venue and florals will not be properly documented and savored without the right photographer. At the end of your wedding day, you will leave your reception with a spouse and your wedding photographs. If you're choosing to invest in high quality photography, those images deserve a home that will survive the test of time for generations to come. I offer luxurious leather or linen bound (made in America, guaranteed for life!) heirloom albums, as well as professional Prints and Canvas Gallery wraps-- all of which can easily be purchased directly through your exclusive online Gallery. I ensure the labs I order through are affordable, without sacrificing quality! This is the perfect ending to your experience, and it's a keepsake that you will show future generations.

“Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.”


The Perfect Fit

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Melissa Knott Photography capture our wedding day! Melissa is absolutely wonderful & so easy to work with! She understood our wants and needs for our big day from the beginning! She was the perfect fit for our simple "country farm" wedding! We are so in LOVE & beyond pleased with our gallery! I can't thank Melissa enough for purely capturing the love, joy and the excitement throughout the entire day!

Can I make Payments on a Wedding Package?

Yes! I accept cash, credit and checks, however, if you pay by credit card, it is subject to a 5% processing fee. To reserve your date, one third of yout balance is due as a reservation retainer. The second third is due 90 days before the wedding, and the final third is due 30 days before the wedding.

How and When Can we expect the images?

All images are first delivered through an exclusive online gallery that can be easily shared with friends and family. Professional prints can be ordered through this Gallery, if desired. You can expect to receive your Gallery within 8 weeks after the wedding.

Do you use the same second shooter?

Yes! I have a couple of second shooters I work with at weddings who I am confident will provide the outstanding coverage needed for your day. I also ensure that I work with other Photographers who use the same gear and have a similiar shooting style, so I can provide you with cohesive imagery in your Gallery.

How can I book with you?

If we agree that we are a good fit for each other, I will send a client booking confirmation proposal, Invoice for your payment method and contract. No date is reserved without a fully signed contract and paid reservation retainer.
