So Nice To Meet You!!

Hey there!

We are Rick and Melanie, a married couple for over 14 years and best friends:)  We are travel (and coffee) addicts and have a list of places around the world we want to see.  We’re slowly checking them off together. Photography has always been a huge part of our lives.  We started photographing weddings six years ago for close friends and immediately fell in love with it.  We are especially drawn to those raw, real, ‘in between’ moments where couples completely open up to each other.  Being able to document those moments for others and create memories for a lifetime is everything to us.  Those moments are where everyone’s story is told.  We would love the privilege of telling your story through pictures.


Rick… I have been drawn to photography for as long as I can remember.  It started I guess as a kid when we drove up Pacific Coast Hwy 1 as a family and my dad hung pictures of that amazing scenery all over our house.  I got my first camera a few years later, a Canon Rebel and that was it, I was hooked.  I played the guitar for 15 years, taught it for 4 and have seen Star Wars more times than I can think of.  I can probably recite entire scenes word for word. I didn’t start drinking coffee until about 27 but now visit Starbucks daily… Melanie… My love for photography began with my father taking pictures of our family.  Not necessarily waiting for him to get the shot as he imagined it (we were impatient little girls) but the amazing ability to go back to those moments and emotions in an instant with a photograph.  Now some of my favorite family time is belly laughing together when my dad breaks out the projector… I also love cooking, eating, friends, family and a good glass of wine.  I am elated when they all come together:).  I’m thrilled that I get to share my passion with my best friend and love, my partner in everything.  


We'd love to meet you!
