All About Missy

Missy is an award-winning photographer who specializes in artistic wedding photography and lifestyle portraiture. Her work, which is deeply rooted in the worlds of fine art, fashion, and photojournalism, reveals an approach that is sensitive, creative and often humorous. Largely self-taught, Missy has been making photographs since the gift of her first camera at age 6. However, it was only after the birth of her son, William, that she realized her gift for photographing life's real moments. Shortly after photographing her first wedding, her hobby snowballed into a successful photography business which has grown to accommodate a select number of lifestyle portrait sessions and an average of twenty weddings per year. Melisa, whose work is widely published, has earned national and international recognition from highly regarded professional groups including Wedding and Portrait Photographers International and the Wedding Photojournalists Association (WPJA). In 2007, she was named one of the top 100 wedding photojournalists in the world as well as the top photographer in Michigan by the WPJA. More recently, Melisa was voted Traverse City's number one photographer by viewers of WPBN TV7&4 and was listed among The Knot Magazines - Best of Weddings 2010.
