About Me


Melissa Van Horn


Hi, welcome to my site!

In 2020, I graduated college and started working at the courthouse, but I quickly realized I was in the wrong line of work. I have always been a creative soul, whether that be taking photographs in my free time or spending time at the dance studio. My goal in life has always been to help or positively impact others. I thought that meant that I needed to save people during their worst moments, but I have come to realize that I find fulfillment in being there for people during their most exciting moments and photographing them. Whether that be a graduation, wedding, engagement, or any other special moment in life, I am able to meet new people and positively impact them in a very short amount of time. Pictures last a lifetime and so will the positive impact we have on each other. I can't wait to work with you!
