We only have a few times in our lives in which milestones come our way. It is how we celebrate those milestones that give us meaning and purpose in life. We created the Melissa x Lynne experience with the intention of celebrating your journey in a unique and creative way. We create every photo with purpose and you in mind. The experience you have with us affects how you feel about your images. We pride ourselves in creating an incredible experience for our clients.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE AN EXPERIENCE WORTH SOMETHING?
Elegant, Tailor-Made Sessions that
Document Your Story.
Our signature work draws from over two decades of experience. We create photographs that are inherently feminine, fearless, and Vogue ready. You come out with an inspiring collection of extraordinary images.
With Melissa x Lynne, we think of and handle all of the pressing details from start to finish so you don't have to. From professional hair and makeup, ornate wardrobe, fashion-forward styling, to bespoke product selections we have thought of it all.
We only accept 6 sessions per month in order to protect our creativity and ensure that every Melissa x Lynne client receives the caliber of service they deserve. That said, we strongly encourage booking early. You should plan to schedule your session at least 3-4 months in advance to guarantee booking.
Every Melissa x Lynne client that we photograph is an amazing fit with us from Day One. This is important to us because we truly want your experience to be just as memorable as the images you leave with. After all, you are going to be looking at them (in awe) for so many years and generations to come.
Your session will be tailored specifically to you as we work with you personally to focus on your ideas and visions for your session. During your pre-session consultation we will discuss your ideas on wardrobe, styling, hair and makeup, posing and setups for your session. If there are any images from our portfolio that you resonate with we would love to know about these so that we can get a sense of your unique style.
Wardrobe is such an important aspect when it comes to your final images. Because of this we've scoured the globe to hunt for some of the finest, most unique items to incorporate into your session. We spend countless hours looking for just the right picturesque items. From fine Italian silk fabrics to handmade one-of-a-kind ensembles and avant-garde style gowns, your session can be as simple or as glamorous as you'd like.
Elevated, timeless hair and makeup with an editorial touch. We know what it takes to make you look chic and beautiful both in the mirror and on camera. With Raven's signature natural, but enhanced style you will go into your session oozing confidence from head to toe. Then, during your session, Raven is always available for any additional touch-ups, look changes, or to make sure every hair is in place.
During your photoshoot Melissa & Raven will direct you through outfit changes and pose you in ways that will bring out your most beautiful, natural self. They will help you with everything from hand and feet placement to facial expressions.
Even if this is your first professional photography experience our goal is for you to feel beautiful and confident and look like you came straight off a page of a fashion magazine.
When it comes to displaying your artwork we are committed to offering timeless quality. Each our albums are custom designed and handcrafted by skilled artisans to create an heirloom that tells your story perfectly. Our beautiful line of folio boxes are imported in and made of premium silk linen fabrics and fine Italian leathers.
