Hi, It’s Melissa!
Welcome to Melissa and Company Photography.
Yep, you are in the right place. Let’s go ahead and get you up to speed. If you're looking for Melissa Holley Photography you have found it (sort of). In the last year, I met my partner Bryan. We have teamed up and are now shooting all weddings side by side. So with a new name and a new partner, I’d like to introduce you to our new name, Melissa and Company Photography. I never thought I would meet and fall in love with someone that shares my passion for photography. I am so glad I did, and just like you, we are ready to start our happily ever after.
So you know we got you covered..
A little about our photography backgrounds. I (Melissa) graduated from the University of Montevallo in 2003 with a degree in photography. I started working in studios right after graduating. I worked with Belmont Studios (Birmingham), Waldrup Studios (Huntsville), and Greg Machen Studios (Huntsville). I also began photographing with 256 Magazine in Huntsville for several years. I have been featured on The Knot, Wedding Wire, The Overwhelmed Bride, Southern Bride, and countless others.
Bryan is an award-winning photojournalist (try moving his award plaques, you will hurt yourself). He was a staff photographer for the Huntsville Times for over 15 years and then worked at the Redstone Rocket as a photographer for 5 years. He has taken home “Photo of the Year” from the Alabama Associated Press more than once. He has photographed in the Jungles of Central America and been on the warfront photographing in Bosnia. In other words, take a deep breath, we gotcha covered.
Our style is a mix of portraiture and photojournalistic styles. In other words, if you like Pinterest and candid moments you will love what we bring to the table. We do film by request. We have a darkroom we built where we can process black and white film and create beautiful hand-printed photos.
We are big on communication so go ahead and reach out. We would love to chat and get to know you.
Talk to you soon,
Melissa and Bryan
