If you believe in a little  magic & sparkle,
you’re in the right place! I've been capturing weddings for 8 years and to say it’s  my passion is an understatement.
I love to create light & and use flash to add a timeless vibe!
I love to capture soft, dreamy and romantic portraits you can hang on your wall for a lifetime.
These moments go by so quickly and I want you to relive that emotion and beauty through classic forever images.
I have hosted photography workshops, coached and mentored other photographers. I love sharing my passion through teaching.
When I'm not capturing your magical wedding  or editing I'm hanging out with my 6 children.
When they are sleeping I'm watching a corny drama on Netflix with a glass of wine or sitting outside by the fire (weather dependent of course).
I love a good charcuterie board while hanging with my husband and family.

I can't wait to capture some magic with you!

Hey there! 
I'm Melanie Phyllis 


Meet my 6 littles







I love to decorate and celebrate over the top every year. 
I'm obsessed with every Holiday season!


Fresh air, bonfires &
 fishing the day away!
Although Glamping is more my style. 


If I could live at the Cheese cake factory I would.
 Lemon, White Chocolate and Raspberry are my favs!

Cheese Cake

I LOVE to plan a good party.
From weddings to children's birthday parties. 
I live for it!

Party Planning

favorite things

I was just a new mama in 2013 with a dream.
When I had my first, I would always be designing photo sessions in my head and nagging my friend to come capture them for me. Once I had my second in 2014 I decided I needed to pick up my own camera.
I went to the store and held so many cameras. I needed to feel it in my hands.
Nikon became my best friend and I left the store with my first camera baby that day. 
I practiced on my kids, my friends , anyone who would let me. I took classes at Henrys and a wedding photography course at Durham College. I continued to learn until I launched my business in 2015. I learn and grow every year. I will never stop being inspired.
Before I photography, I went to school for social work, hair styling/makeup and wedding planner!
Don't get me wrong I still LOVE to plan a good wedding but capturing the beauty is where my heart is happiest.
I'll be happy to help you plan every step of the way!
I can't wait to capture all  of your magic & love.
