Melissa Shanley

Melissa Shanley I am specialized in portrait photography for seniors. I love working one on one in portrait photography and capture the best of you. For high school seniors, I try my best to turn shoots into a special pampered occasion for both senior and parent(s). I also love photographing families, engagement, maternity and weddings. These weddings take the life out of me, so I only book a few special ones per year that inspire me. OMG, the moments I get to capture with those !!! I pride myself in going above and beyond to produce beautifully retouched portrait photographs I am proud of, no matter what I’m photographing. I make sure that your photo session is an experience that you will enjoy and remember. I honestly give you everything I’ve got, no matter what kind of shoot. I like to keep things simple, so I only charge one amount for all full portrait shoots and give ALL the edited Melissa Shanley high resolution pictures, free of charge, with a print release. No complicated packages.

I have several assistants, including my two sons, who assist at portrait shoots during the summer. Some shoots include a complimentary little behind the scenes video of the shoot. Some shoots include my friends Michelle and Deb, who are stylists and hair & Make-up artists. At weddings I invite one or two additional photographers Yasiris Torres and Jenni Summer to help capture your memories. All of this is included. I take my time getting to know everyone, shooting the session, and editing each and every picture individually. I have no limits on clothes changes, use 1 or 2 locations if necessary, and make sure specific wishes of my clients are met. I deliver a high quality product on which I spend many hours on perfecting and retouching, and am proud to have my name attached to, no matter what you book me for.
I love my career and I really love getting to know and capturing different personalities and stories. It doesn’t hurt that we live in such a beautiful state, with the best locations and light.
