About Us

Joyful, vibrant, and timeless! Happy Finch Photography is a perfect fit for couples who want warm, friendly collaboration and a wedding collection that conveys every tender emotion and gorgeous detail in a clean and colorful way.

I aim to capture the true spirit of a wedding day, how it felt as you and your partner celebrated the first day of your marriage. So much more than just point-and-shoot, I compose images that will bring all the joy, romance, and humor of the day rushing back to mind. Vibrant colors, radiant light, beautiful scenery, and – of course! – effervescent newlyweds are my favorite subjects, and I take pride in capturing all of these in a creative and authentic way.

Style & Approach
I give every couple a high level of attention to detail and make sure our plans are well-coordinated before the wedding. On the big day, I always arrive early and well-prepared to capture the shots that are most important to you. Behind the scenes, I offer constructive posing suggestions and group instructions when appropriate, remaining unobtrusive during the ceremony and other key moments. (I have found this hybrid of fine art photography and photojournalism to be an ideal approach for weddings.) After the wedding, I spend considerable time retouching your images until they are perfect. Your final collection will have a balanced mix of candid and formal images suited to the unfolding parts of your day and guided by the preferences you've shared with me.

Your final images will look bright, crisp, and natural. My goal is to edit your photos in a way that will never go out of style, in a way that will allow you to remember the color and lighting as it really was, as it was written on your mind's eye.

  • From our first consultation to the final delivery of our stunning wedding photos, Melinda was a true professional and made the whole experience so easy and such a fun process! We had the opportunity to do an engagement session beforehand which was a blast! My husband and I both are usually so awkward in front of the camera, but Melinda made us feel completely at ease during our session and captured truly natural-looking, beautiful pictures. Getting to “practice” in such a way really made such a difference for the whole process on the day of our wedding. She helped us feel like old pros by then! Melinda was incredible to work with and she absolutely elevated the atmosphere of the day with her positive attitude and enthusiasm. On our big day, she was on top of every special moment and never missed a beat! After the many hours she spent with us, we even got to see our sneak peak only 2 days later! Talk about dedication! She was so kind and responsive throughout the whole ... Read more
