Melanie Principe

Wedding, Engagement and Portrait Photographer



I'm Melanie, a 22-year-old wedding and portrait photographer located in the suburbs of Chicago.

After falling in love with the idea of telling a story in just one photograph, I decided to pursue a career in photography. So, I attended Columbia College Chicago where I graduated in 2015 with a degree in Commercial Photography.

Aside from being obsessed with photography, I am a huge animal lover – especially dogs. My creative inspiration comes from nature and I love spending time outdoors, no matter the season.

I thoroughly enjoy working with the untraditional couples who aren't afraid to explore nature and get the most out of their own uniquely planned wedding day.

Building a strong relationship with my clients is something I am truly passionate about. It allows for all parties involved to feel comfortable, which helps me capture your personal love story in the photographs I take.

If you think I would be a good fit to capture your wedding day, send me a message. I would love to get to know more about you and your special day!
