Melrose Caverns Wedding | Samantha & Michael

June 24, 2019

Samantha and Michael’s wedding at Melrose Caverns yesterday held for an absolutely perfect day! It was a really exciting day since I’ve never photographed a wedding at Melrose before, but I had a little practice since we captured their engagement photos there back in the Fall of 2018. If you missed their Melrose Caverns engagement session, you can check it out here!

Samantha and Michael’s day was extremely special — the way their friends + family were so excited to celebrate made ME excited. I loved the energy that everyone brought during the course of the day. Their bridal party was especially helpful in bringing so much excitement and love.

As usual, sunset photos are my favorite time of a wedding day. This really gives a couple a chance to sneak away from their friends + family for a few moments and just breathe their day in. Sam and Michael’s sunset portraits were no exception to that. They were both completely up for running, walking through thorn bushes, and doing all the things in order to get the shots that would come to mind. It makes me feel so lucky to know that I have couples completely willing to do whatever for their photos, because they trust me and the videography team (who were AWESOME, by the way. Shameless shoutout to Aerial Illustrations for just being a great team to work with).


A note to the couple:

Sam and Michael, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day! I had such a great time capturing your wedding from beginning to end and cannot wait to show you more photos. Until your final gallery is ready, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

WHY we're the perfect match:


As a wedding photographer, yes, my priority, is capturing your day. But more than that, it's making sure you spend time with people - YOUR people - and that THOSE moments are captured. When it comes to your wedding day, I'm an efficient photographer WITHOUT compromising quality, and truly feel that is what most couples need during their wedding experience. I want you to be able to run (not walk) to cocktail hour, dance to the "Wobble" (if you're into that), and not have to worry about sticking to a strict timeline (because for 95% of my couples, we get photos done EARLY and you're free to party with your people right afterwards).

When you hire me as your wedding photographer, you hire a fun sense of organization with timeline prep, efficiency, and an overall sense of servitude for you and your guests on your wedding day.

Andrea is a joy to be around and creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere. Andrea captures each moment so beautifully. She was always on top of communication, and I always felt like she cared about what we wanted. The quality of pictures is amazing and I am so glad we chose Andrea as our wedding photographer! You should definitely hire her now for your photography needs!"


"Andrea brings out the natural beauty in whatever she photographs.

Andrea went above and beyond to accommodate us for a last minute change of plans due to COVID-19. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the pictures and how they turned out. We absolutely love them all. Andrea brings out the natural beauty in whatever she photographs. Thanks to Andrea we will be able to relive our wedding day over and over."


"Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving.

Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving. She feels like she is your best friend as soon as you meet her! Throughout our wedding planning process, she sent a sweet little surprise gift box, a helpful photography planning guide, and she even made us a personalized ornament for our first Christmas! She goes above and beyond in everything she does.


"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient. She captured the best moments and got all the shots we wanted without making it feel like the photography was taking over the day. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
