melanie of mbm weddingsHi! I’m Melanie. When you first call or email, you’re going to get in touch with me. I’m very excited to work with you and to hear your love story! Our couples describe me as a fun and dedicated photographer. My friends say I can be very laid-back or completely enthusiastic too! I bring the calm and the party! I’m the one you’ll be planning with prior to your engagement session and wedding and I’ll be the one to help you choose your albums, wall art and family gifts after your wedding. In my spare time, I love to read- especially love stories! I also love Broadway and musicals more than anything in the world! My current favorites are RENT and Hamilton, but Ms. Saigon will always hold a special place in my heart, too.

brian of mbm weddingsYou may meet Brian when you come to our showroom for a consult. He may come along to your engagement session if you choose to have us both. Otherwise, you’ll meet him on the day of your wedding. He’s going to show up and absolutely rock your wedding photography. Just like he may stay hidden before your wedding, you won’t even know he’s there on the day of your wedding. Brian is the king of candids. He may be the most quiet and stealth man you’ll ever meet! In his spare time, Brian enjoys making music. Did you know he has made and performed the soundtracks for dozens of video games?! He also really likes to play golf with his friends.

Together, we have wedding photography down to a science! I bring the calm. I am level-headed and can manage your wedding party and family with grace. I watch the clock and the sun, and I keep things moving. Brian brings the stealth. We are frequently told that Brian was able to get shots when nobody saw him or knew he was photographing. Brian is the king of candid!

We have the best job in the world.  We love photography and we’re passionate about photographing weddings and love stories. This allows us to create those special images of the best times in your lives. We love photographing people’s most special moments, especially their wedding day. We love photographing engagement sessions and hearing couples’ love stories.

Our style is timeless and classic; it’s warm and bright with vivid colors.  We use clean processing techniques to capture the authentic moments of your day. We pride ourselves on capturing all of the details that couples have spent months planning.  From the elegance of formals to the excitement of your reception, we strive to provide the most beautiful posed images that you have ever seen and we are right in the middle of the action during the reception.

We look forward to hearing your story, finding out what’s important to you, and developing a friendship so that we will have a blast working together to plan your wedding photography and to capture your special moments. Want proof we have fun at weddings?! Here are some of us! And for a little extra fun, see if you can spot the red marks on my forehead from picking up my camera a little too hard!
