ABOUT MELANIE LANDRO

_______________

I'm an artist based in southeastern Wisconsin (Kenosha) with over a decade of professional experience documenting weddings and celebrations, specializing in Wedding & Couples Photography.   My mission is to preserve your legacy with beautiful photography, to help you cherish your life and love together.  To me, it's the most personal art imaginable.  My work has been featured in Wedding Day Magazine and Wisconsin Bride Magazine And my photography style is authentic, timeless and romantic, giving you images balanced between composed FINE ART DETAIL & AUTHENTIC, NATURAL STORYTELLING, capturing your very personal narrative, beautifully. 

When working with my couples, I make it simple for you and give you permission to be 100% your true selves.  I will get to know you, pose with you, and have fun with you on your wedding day, truly honoring the celebration and joy of the day.

Since childhood I've had a love for nature.  This early love carries on in my profession and photography, as the majority of my engagement sessions are captured outside, in beautiful, natural locations in Kenosha County, in the hours of the loveliest light (sunrise & sunset).  

I’m drawn to people with positive attitudes and good energy.  I’m married to my best friend, my fishing partner and fellow red wine lover, and mother to two now teenagers.  I have dedicated part of my life to volunteering for our youth and community, and believe volunteering is love in motion.  And although based in southern WI, part of my soul has always belonged to the northwoods, where I go to relax, recharge and renew.  

 

I love creating images that make you feel something, pieces of art for your walls.  Images that will always come from the heart, and become part of your legacy.

"Melanie was so flexible and understanding, she made the entire experience so relaxing and fun. The entire time she just had a positively radiant smile on her face and was showing us as much joy as we were showing each other. Her photos are a reflection of that and we have appreciated it so, so much!   I would suggest Melanie to anyone in the Racine/Milwaukee area, not only because she was such a joy to work with but also because she has been such a great person to communicate with throughout this entire process. Even without meeting in person, talking to her on the phone I knew I was going to enjoy working with her. Caitlyn & Ryan

"I had been searching for a wedding photographer for months when I came across Melanie's page. I am SO happy that we chose to hire her for our engagement session and wedding! She is so kind and accommodating.  She doesn't just treat you like a paycheck or a number.  She has made us feel special since the first phone call we had with her, but especially during our shoot. We were comfortable working with her and our photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY! On top of how incredible her work is, as well as her as a person, she is affordable - not something you can say often when planning a wedding. I feel like we are 100% getting our money's worth with her.   I highly recommend booking with Melanie! Halie & Andy

"Wonderful person, gorgeous photography and helps create memories you will never forget. Melanie is very passionate about what she does and makes sure that you get everything you need and want! We had multiple meetings to make sure we had everything in place for my wedding.  When it came time to take pictures at the wedding, she was professional but also could have fun and enjoy your day with you! Melanie was an absolute joy to work with. I was extremely nervous and a bit awkward when we started our engagement session, but she made me feel very comfortable and natural during the whole shoot. She engaged in conversation with us and took the time to get to know us as a couple which was really nice as she was going to be spending time with us during a very special and personal time for me and my fiancé.  She caught our essence and our personality as a couple which was important for us. Melanie is a wonderful person.  Only positive things come from Melanie Landro Photography! I loved working with her! Highly recommend! Rachel & Nolan
