A photographic collection of details and "I do's".
My name is Melanie Shelton and I am a Southern California based photographer. In the last two years, I have grown passionate about photographing weddings.
When photographing, I love to capture imagery that tells the story of the couple's special day. Each wedding is vastly unique, telling a very special story, so its crucial to photograph each elaborately crafted detail and each bright smile, touching moment, or tear shed. When the pomp and circumstance of their wedding has passed, what remains are memories punctuated by photographs.
But, in the personal lies the universal, so when I take a step back to examine my work as an artist, I see more than documentation and storytelling. I see moments of elation and joy. I see people from different walks of life illuminated by emotions that only this day could bring. Individually, each wedding is a glorious tale, but it is my plan to elevate moments of each of each story out of their context so they stand as works of art.
With your help, I hope to create my book -- Little Moments: Photographs of Details and "I Do's" to express my images as a collection of art. Please feel free to check out sample of my work at melaniesheltonphoto.com. I appreciate all of your support and thank you for your participation!
