  • Melissa
    Owner / Photographer
    About Melissa

    Hello, it’s wonderful to meet you! My name is Melissa, and I am thrilled to be a co-owner of this studio of exceptional photographers.

    As a soulful seeker of joy and beauty, I believe that love is the heartbeat of life – it’s what makes our existence so precious. My passion is to capture images that evoke emotion, are filled with love and joy, and are anchored in soulful connection. When you look at your images, I want you to feel the same magic that I experience when I capture them.

    Photography is my calling, and I pour my heart into every wedding and couple I photograph. I am a lover of people, human connection, and of course, love itself. I revel in the pure bliss of a good celebration and a dance floor that’s bursting with energy.

    Outside of my work, my heart is filled with adoration for my family, my chaotic fur babies, gardening, music, and exploring the breathtaking beauty of our world. You can also find me redefining self-care by the way of dance.

  • Michael
    Owner / Photographer / Filmmaker
    About Michael

    It’s not every day that I get to talk about myself, but I’ll give it a shot! Hi, I’m Michael. Co-owner of M2 + partner in life to Melissa.

    First and foremost, I am a proud husband and father of two incredible twin daughters. They are the light of my life and inspire me to be the best version of myself every day.

    Welp, that about wraps it up!  Have a great day!  Just kidding.

    I feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to pursue my creative dreams for most of my life. As an introvert who loves people, I find joy in capturing the beauty and emotion of those around me. I’ve been known to be a bit of a type-A personality, but I prefer to think of it as thriving in discipline. I do, however, never take things too seriously and can’t stop myself from throwing one-liners into conversations.

    If you’re interested in learning more about me or my work, drop me a line at themoreyouknowaboutmichael@gmail.com. (Okay, it’s not really another joke, but I promise I’ll make you laugh when we chat!)


  • Nicole
    About Nicole

    My name is Nicole, and I like to think of myself as an explorer of the heart.

    I’m all about kitchen dance parties, indulging in some salt & pepper Mexican chocolate, challenging my body with yoga classes that also nourish my spirit, and laughing until my abs hurt. Oh, and did you know that hugs have magical superpowers? Because they do!

    I believe that every person is beautiful and deserves to be seen in their truest form. And that’s where my imagery comes in – it’s the tangible expression of the invisible connections of love, rooted in genuine communication & the wonder of the human heart.

    Through my art, I want to create something that will be treasured and passed down for generations to come. Something that can transport you back to the most precious moments in life.

    Love is my greatest inspiration. I strive to create my own beautiful moments in life while also bearing witness to those of others. I love people and relish in catching a tiny glimpse of the landscape of their souls.

  • Audrey
    About Audrey

    Hi, I’m Audrey! My philosophy is this: Photography should be the last thing on your mind on your wedding day. You should be free to soak in every moment with your loved ones. After all, that’s what this is all about.

    I grew up during a societal tidal wave of digital art. Like a lot of other millennials, I found my voice in visuals. I had an embarrassing Myspace album called “Photography”, and always had a digital camera close by. I began shadowing a wedding photographer and realized that I might be able to bring something valuable to the industry. My desire to connect with others through imagery, along with an acute sense of the things I found extremely cringy about wedding photography was the foundation of my inspiration. I began working towards my vision, and fine-tuning my artistic eye, working with various studios and photographers.

    Fast forward about a decade— I live/laugh/love in Philadelphia, I have the world’s cutest pets (photos available upon request), and I eat and thrift a lot. I get to do what I love and share it with others, and I’m grateful every day for that.

    When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me enjoying a cozy staycation at home with my family, cuddled up on the couch watching movies, and reading a book. With 9 tattoos and a heart full of emotion, I find joy in the little things in life, from TV commercials to cute puppies. And there’s nothing more fulfilling for me than capturing the love and memories of my clients on their special day. I’m dedicated to my craft and I am passionate, kind, and dedicated to capturing the story of your special day. So, if you’re looking for a photographer who will capture the essence of your special day, I’m your girl.
  • Amrit
    About Amrit

    I’m a joy seeker, sharing joy in all forms; I’m here for every bit of it. I don’t believe in bad weather & you can find me outside in it all.

    Picture poet by day, dragon tamer by night – I mean, mother to 4 spicy little ladies. But in all seriousness, my children are one of my greatest sources of inspiration and keep me humble in the best ways.

    I take great pride in being entrusted with the privilege of creating some of your family’s first heirlooms. Creating is a sort of meditative practice for me. I love to look at all the little details you spent so much time choosing and create designs that honor those moments.

    In my personal life, I strive towards minimalism and simplicity which I feel is also reflected through my design style.

    Above all, I want the experience of working with me to be a tiny of sparkle of joy + light in your day.

  • Isis
    Strategic Operations Manager
    About Isis

    Hi, I’m Isis!

    I live on a small farm with my husband and daughter (and dog and cats and chickens and goats and plants) where our life is somehow both super chill and absolutely chaotic all at once.

    As an entrepreneur, communicator, and someone with a penchant for efficiency and optimization, I’m passionate about discovering hidden gems in chaos. Over the past 12 years, I have honed my skills in project management, streamlining processes, and fostering strong relationships across various industries including non-profit, pharmaceutical, and wedding/event industries. My focus here at M2 is to ensure our team and clients enjoy the most seamless and positive experience possible.

    When I’m not tending to the M2 machine, you can usually find me hunting for treasures at thrift stores and flea markets, sneakily rearranging furniture when my husband isn’t looking (sorry, Jeremy!), or exploring the great outdoors with my family in our trusty Scout camper.

  • Leah

  • Sirius Black
    Sirius Black
    The Grumpy Supervisor
    About Sirius Black

    Don’t believe the title they gave me.  This is an outrage that they can just do whatever they want!  I’m the smartest, most handsome, and the most GENTLE cat you could ever know.  I exude love and kindness, it pours out of me.  So much so that I even attract stray cats to our house and yard all the time.  Just ask my mom, it’s true!

    And if anyone here tries to show you “scratches” or “bite marks”, they’re prone to self-injury and pathological liars.  But they have good hearts so maybe give them a chance?
