about ME

the blog

Soulful. Connected. Intimate.
It's about deeply rooted human connections. 
The heart and soul of life.
It's about big, exuberant, unabashed love.
It's about love stories.
Your love stories.

I'm Melissa Durham, and I'm a couples photographer based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia that specializes in coastal and mountain weddings and elopements, and in sessions that nourish
adventurous, connected relationships.
I'm an island-born, mountain-rooted, old soul moved by human connection and this dazzling adventure we call love.

PORTFOLIO

VIRGINIA + WORLDWIDE

Wife. Mother. Dreamer. Friend.

Years from now, you want to look back on the photographs of these moments and really feel the memory of that day.
Romantic glances. Soft, golden light on your skin. The warm breeze that danced through your hair on the beach. 
Closeness under a blanket on a brisk day in the mountains. The smell of breakfast that Saturday morning.
The sounds of laughter and family.
