Zenfolio | Melissa Marie Photo | About

Oh hey there! Thanks so much for stopping by. My name is Melissa but you can call me Mimi. I am a hobby photographer based out of Portland, ME. 

I first got into photography taking photos of my family and friends; my adorably crazy dog Bella, and self portraits of my husband Greg and I. I continued being intrigued by the immense amount of ways I could capture one single moment in time, and tell a million stories from one shot. These days I truly enjoy capturing emotions on camera, moments of joy and excitement with friends and intimate moments with couples. As well as going on adventures whether in the city - shooting awesome architecture or on a big hike and capturing beautiful scenery created by nature. 

I love shooting outdoors, mostly to use light and backdrops that have already been created for us. Photography is my absolute pleasure, because it allows me to capture the small details that make up the beautiful essence of things. It has truly become my passion and it allows me to meet so many wonderful souls. I hope you enjoyed your visit to my site and that one day I may have the pleasure of working with you to make beautiful and meaningful images together.
