Meet Melanie

Hi! I am Melanie, the creative behind The Golden Collective Photography. Welcome to my page - I am so excited you are stopping by! No, really I am!!

I am a Charlotte based lifestyle photographer. I grew up in Florida, and moved to the Charlotte area a few years ago. It was the best decision I have ever made - I feel so at home here!  I've taken photos from the beach to the mountains and everything in between! My style aims to capture natural golden light and genuine emotions. I hope to tell a story in my images so you can look back on them 1o years from now and remember where you were in that moment in time.  

When I'm not behind my camera, you can find me spending time with my fiancé, cooking, playing with my two golden retrievers (Lillian and Henry - part of the reason for the name behind the business!)  or hanging out with my best friend, my sister Natalie. I love traveling, experiencing new cultures/new places, laying in my backyard hammock, home decorating, and cheering on my Florida State Seminoles! 


I hope to meet with you and have the opportunity to capture what means the most to you at this stage in your life.  Can't wait to hear from you!
