Hello, I'm Melissa

Family & Wedding Photographer serving Gulf & the Forgotten Coast

I was born and raised in North Georgia with an early love for taking photos. I moved to the Florida Panhandle in 2007. After the birth of my children, Emma (7) and Leo (3), I dove headfirst into learning the ins and outs of photography under the mentorship of my lifelong best friend. After a few years of learning the ropes, I branched out and started Hive & Honey in 2022.
I am located in Gulf County, Florida. I specialize in capturing couples, families, engagements, and weddings along The Forgotten Coast.

Melissa and Julie recently photographed my wedding. Not only were the photos stunning, but they were so easy to work! Melissa is an absolute doll. They divide and conquer! Melissa photographed the groomsmen and i don’t know what she said or did but the laughs these men shared during the photos were genuine! (Trust me, i’ve tried to photograph them😐)I can’t wait to use them for future services and will be recommending them to everyone! 🤍🤩
