IM SO HAPPY YOU'RE HERE
As a lover of Rom-Coms, cheesy hallmark movies, one could only guess that I LOVE love. And that would be 100% on point. However, the stories I really am passionate about are the real ones. The messy, intense, all consuming love stories that I get to hear every time I photograph a wedding. Those are the stories that can trump any Hollywood romance.
Telling your story is such a personal task, which I take very seriously. My entire goal is to showcase your love and individual personalities through the photos I take. I want you to look back at your photos in 50 years and feel like the wedding happened yesterday. My style is timeless, a little moody, and 100% authentic. My inspiration pulls from textures, light, movement, and of course your personal love story.
My goal as your photographer is to be your right hand girl, the timeline keeper, & people wrangler. Most importantly, my job is to provide you with the promise that I will document your day in the most authentic and beautiful way possible. In the end, I want to leave you with photos of your most cherished memories.
I so appreciate you being here, and I can't wait to hear from you.
Hi, I am Melanie Jarvie.
Me: people usually say that I’m “shorter than they expected” or ask if I’m old enough to be photographing a wedding | I’m 28; and yes, i’m only 4'11'' | sarcastic 90% of the time | I’m an ambivert | I live in the moment, never take anything for granted | I love hard • my husband Parker | our bichon-poo, Penny | our kitty, Maisie | book worm | long walks | hiking | a good gym session | puzzles | surfing | bonfires in the fall | fireplace on, snow falling | new white shoes | uninterrupted family time | spooning | rubbing my face with no makeup on | clean countertops | lazy Saturdays | sushi | freshly washed sheets
YOU: I am your third wheel & your emotional support human | I’m your bonus bridesmaid - I’m there for anything you need | more than just a photographer | I promise you won’t feel awkward | I capture moments that will give you the same emotions when you look back at them years later | small moments | quiet moments | the story of you.
Adam & Jaclyn

I contacted Melanie via referral to take photos of my proposal and a surprise party for my fiancé where family and friends flew in. Melanie was extremely personable, detailed and diligent. Tears of joy run spurt when we look at them and our f&f said that they were some of the best photos ever taken of them. I highly recommend Melanie if you want a joyous, personable experience.
