The Birth of Melodic View:

   My love of geography made me a traveler and traveling helped me fall in love with nature and national parks.
   My lack of a boyfriend for the better part of my teens and 20's led me to be obsessed with how and where people meet the love of their lives.
   My passion for movies and theater helped craft my cinematic style.
   My love of clothes and willingness to play around with my style led to me amass a client wardrobe and find joy in styling other people.

  It's all connected - my photography is a manifestation of my life's story.

What you can expect with me:

~Couples Sessions and Elopements are team efforts: I'm with you through every step of the planning process.

~My editing style is bold and dramatic with deep, rich tones and true to life colors. The portraits I create are timeless and don't follow over-exposure or desaturation fads.

~My nature and landscape photography features prominently since I believe that the beauty and chaos of nature, with its twisting paths, coarse landscapes and breath-taking wonder is a poignant analogy for relationships. I pride myself on sculpting your images with a mixture of romance and gorgeous backdrops.

~While nature is celebrated in the stories I tell - so are the quiet moments in between that make up a lifetime together. You can expect lots of images built around those glances and gestures that make up your unique language of admiration and love. 

~A Texas native, I've lived on the road in an RV full-time for the past 4 years, exploring national parks, mountains and coastline. I've explored 47 states and know tons of beautiful spots I can recommend for your elopement or adventure session. Landscape and nature photography were my first loves and I have over 10 years of capturing this wild world in camera.

~For me, photography is an investment in relationships and I approach the couples who choose me as friends I just haven't met yet. So, the more time we spend together and the more we do together, the closer we become.
