Not only am I a Wedding Photographer, I am a wife and a mother to two little rugrats. I am a funny girl that laughs often and loves a good sense of humor. I enjoy dancing, glamping, and traveling. I don't mind getting dirty and I love being outside. The things I am most passionate about in life are my faith, my marriage, and mentoring young teens. When not being a wedding photographer you can find me being a human jungle gym to my kids in my living room. I love sipping wine while watching re-runs of The Office and I can recite every line from the movie Mean Girls.

Amanda Perkins


Amanda loves to organize chaos. From her days as a classroom teacher, to her time as a foster mom, she has been known to say that she "loves a good challenge" and does so with a permanent smile on her face. She always has a coffee in hand as she makes it work and gets things done. Besides keeping the team running like a well oiled machine, you can count on Amanda making people laugh and finding the humor in everything. 

Melissa Lacasse


Melissa is impossible not to love. She makes you feel like you are old friends within minutes of meeting her. She is a mama to 3 beautiful blondies and really has a heart for serving others. She is every bit strong as she is friendly being a former school teacher, Boston resident, and cancer survivor. When not shooting you can find Melissa exploring New England or cozied up at home sipping coffee dreaming up home design.

He does an incredible amount behind the scenes, though you might see him second shooting from time to time. Voted "the happiest guy" in his high school superlatives, he is still the most approachable person you will ever meet.
