We are Melissa and Mike Miksch — the sarcastic, somewhat feisty, and (usually) witty husband and wife team behind Melissa Miksch Photography. We believe in capturing your day in a fun, creative, and natural way. We really think you and your wedding are awesome just the way you are. We're going to capture you (and your wedding) at your best. We want you to look at your photos and think "yep, my day was awesome!"

Our favorite clients are the ones that wind up feeling more like our friends at the end of the day. We love working with outgoing, imaginative, smart(ass) couples. Almost every wedding, if you look closely, is just a bit offbeat. We strive to make those little (sometimes big) details shine. If you're the kind to have a brass knuckles theme, or you just want your bridal party to rock some Chucks on the big day, we think that's excellent! Your photos should represent your personality, not just ours.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

We’re going to treat you just like every other client — we’re going to listen to what you want, help you figure out what you need, and then show up on your wedding day ready to be part artist, part photojournalist, part cat herder. We realize that not everyone has the budget or desire to hire a planner, and so we always make sure we sit down with all of our couples ahead of time to discuss the day, the timeline, and what you really want out of your wedding photos; and then we help on the day of to make sure that plan is executed. We also know that not everyone wants a full day of photography, which is why we offer options that cover as little as 3 hours (perfect for elopements), and go up from there. Our albums and canvas options are also a la carte, letting you really create the perfect package for YOU.

"Melissa choreographed all of the shots we discussed ahead of time and then went way beyond my expectations! She captured all the special moments as they occurred and made sure that we didn’t miss a thing. She is professional but approachable. Everything a great photographer should be! Thanks Melissa!" ~Terri A.
