About Me

IMG_8549webpinimageHello!  My name is Melissa Wolf.  I am many things, a mother, wife, friend, recent travel enthusiast, surfer, provider and a photographer.  My day starts out with coffee, lots and lots of coffee.  I then pack up the car, head to my daughters school and drop off the loves of my life.  Then its back in the truck and I’m off to my favorite point break to catch a couple waves before I head home to work.  My camera comes everywhere with me, to school, the beach, across the world, even into the water.  Shooting in the water is my absolute favorite.  I find it challenging, rewarding and so inspiring.  The ocean is ever changing.  It has the most calming affect on my soul and I feel refreshed, renewed and excited every time I step in and out.  My girls are my biggest source of inspiration  Sometimes one of them might sneak in on your shoot, to take photos.  They love to be behind the camera and are pretty darn talented.  Even my husband will sneak in and assist me every once in a while.  He may or may not have an incredible eye, but don’t tell him I said that.  My favorite place to be is in the water with the people I love.  I feel at home there, my Mom likes to tell me its the Irish in me.  But it could be just that my childhood dream of being a mermaid has never really gone away.  I know that I am incredibly lucky to do what I do.  I don’t take it for granted and I love that I get to capture and save not only my memories but also those of the families and couples that trust me to do it for them.  If you book me for a photo session don’t expect to many poses.  Expect to play, to laugh and to go on a little adventure.  I’m not afraid to get dirty, to swim out past the pier and I promise that I will most defiantly laugh at myself the entire time.  I look forward to meeting you.  Aloha.
