Meet Melissa

I am Melissa Joy Clark, owner of MelissaJoy Photography. Photography is my passion but the relationships I build with my clients is what drives my business. I feel so lucky every time I get to capture the beauty in a love story or the look a groom gives his bride as she is walking down the aisle. I strongly believe that we each have a story to tell, and I love that photographs help us tell that story. One of the best parts of my business is the ability to shoot alongside my husband (Matt) at each wedding we capture. He really is my right-hand man and I couldn’t think of a better person to work with. We absolutely love getting to know our couples and feeling like we’re friends with them before their wedding day.

Here’s a little bit more about the small things that make me smile:

Spring nights sitting on my patio {with some red wine, of course}

People watching when I travel

A good Sunday afternoon nap

 Girls nights watching “The Bachelor”

 Cuddling up to a movie with my hubby {with some tasty Chinese delivery}

Phone dates with my long distance friends

 My favorite red licorice from dean & delucca

 Decorating our newlywed apartment

 That feeling of accomplishment after a long hike

 And a good game of cards and laughs with my family

Hi Melissa! I was just perusing The Knot and landed on a few of your pictures. I love how natural they are and yet still so pretty. If you would e-mail me with your packaging and pricing, I would so appreciate it.
