So you've found the vendor for that perfect something you've been wanting. You're excited, but have a few questions before purchasing. You call for more information and you get an automated response. "Your call is very important to us...." or worse yet, you are routed through a set of automated scripted responses. It's days before someone gets back to you, if at all, and the person on the other end is dry and business-y. Automation and cookie cutter templates have become increasingly popular with businesses, and photography studios are no exception. We don't like it, and we're guessing you're not a fan either. Especially when you are planning one of the most important days of your life. 

 What if there was something different? Someone that was there to help you through every step of the process? Someone that was there to offer insights and helpful tips? Someone to help you create a timeline to keep everyone on the same page so your day flows smoothly? Someone who was your inside scoop on the best places to eat, play and stay, the most choice partners to work with on your wedding day; or the coolest locations to get that totally epic shot? Wouldn't that be nice?

 Here at Melanie Myhre Photography we believe wedding photography is so much more than just pushing the button on a fancy camera. We know how stressful wedding planning can be, especially if you're doing it long distance. Some days we are part wedding coordinator, part photographer, part confidant. Our clients are more than just a business transaction. Our clients quickly become friends, and we prefer things that way, because who really wants a total stranger sticking a camera in your face on your wedding day? We love it when we work with you from the beginning engagement photos, through the bridal portraits (we've even done a few maternity sessions before the wedding) and on your wedding day. Heck, we love it when you call or write from time to time after your wedding to let us know how you are doing and maybe join us for coffee when you are in town. 

 We also pride ourselves on our ability to create timeless portraits and heirloom products so that your precious memories are preserved for generations to come, because let's face it. After the flowers are faded, the cake is eaten, and the venue has turned out the lights, your wedding photos are what helps preserve those memories in your heart. Our expertise with multiple types of lighting equipment and posing skills ensure that you get extraordinary images straight out of the camera, but we have you covered with our editing skills too. Each image is individually edited by hand and includes complete skin retouching that is natural and realistic. No batch processing or skin blurring here. If it's an artistic edit you're looking for to give that extra special touch, we can do that too! Just ask for our Signature Edit.

 

You won't find consumer grade picture books with cookie cutter template designs either. We use only professional grade printing partners for our products. Each album is custom designed by Melanie Myhre using the color scheme from your wedding and uses only high quality papers and materials. Each page is laid out by hand with hand made decorative backgrounds, and borders. You can even have her add some special sentiments from the day if you like. Each album is unique and a work of art!

 Clients love us for our cinematic, artistic and romantic style. We love capturing those special moments that make your heart melt; like the joyous look on the grooms face as he sees his bride for the first time and the tears rolling down dad's face as he dances with his daughter. We also love capturing those precious portraits of the two of you, your cherished family members and your best friends. We combine traditional portraits with candid moments in a way that is fun, flattering, playful and relaxed. No stuffy 'say cheese!' moments here. We promise :)

 In order to ensure a high level of personal attention to detail, we do a select amount of weddings per year and availability is limited. A deposit is required to reserve your date. We recommend reserving your date early to ensure availability. Below is our selection of wedding collections. Collections are customizable upon request. We look forward to meeting you and working together!
