Hello, I'm Melissa.

Bulldog Mom • cyclist • amateur foodie

Oh, and I’m also a kick-ass wedding & newborn photographer.

​Hi! I'm the creative force behind Lovely Day Photo, a boutique studio in Buffalo, NY. With over two decades of experience in the industry, I have devoted my career to capturing your happiest moments and turning them into beautiful memories that you can cherish forever. Whether it's your wedding day, welcoming a newborn into your family, or capturing special moments with your loved ones, I strive to showcase the big picture while also paying attention to life's smallest details that tell the biggest story. Think of me as your photo fairy godmother…except much younger, a little silly, and a redhead!

Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures of our wedding day. They are truly beautiful keepsakes that we hope to keep for generations to come. We couldn't wait to share them with our family and friends. Thank you for your patience & organization on that day with our wedding party and families. It made the day stress-free for us!
