Mel with vintage camera

What started as a passion for documenting my own kids quickly blossomed into Mel Kay Photography.

hi, I'm Mel

"Mel was an absolute dream to work with!! We extensively searched for a photographer, as it was one of the most important aspects of our wedding to us. We talked to countless wonderful photographers prior to Mel, but when we got on our initial call with her, we fell in love with her bubbly personality and excitement and instantly knew we loved her and had to use her for our special day."

We'll Get Along If

You love hanging out and playing with your kids

You're down to earth, but love to go the

extra mile to make things fun

You're looking for your photographer to capture

tons of candid, genuine moments

You're okay with me making jokes all day and
