Melanie Principe


Hey, I'm Melanie

Yes, I’m short and look like a 12 yr old. I’m a wedding and portrait photographer currently splitting my time between South Carolina, New York, and Chicago!  I have a puppy named Penny and a husband, Parker,  who I married on October 20th, 2017! I love spending my free time outside or watching The Office & most of the time you can probably catch me quoting Spongebob.

I have a degree in Photography from Columbia College Chicago. When I started college i didn’t know what type of photographer I wanted to be.. I was interested in fashion and portraiture, but once I photographed my first wedding I fell in love with the idea of telling the story of others’ love!

The main reason I wanted to start my own business is so I could develop a personal relationship with my couples. I want to be more than just a vendor with a camera at each wedding, I want to be a friend. Therefore, the couples I work with aren't just clients, they are friends. My goal is to have real genuine connections with everyone I work with. Id love to hear from you and all about your love!
