“Your portraits look better on the wall than on a disk in a drawer.”


Melissa-Perlman-Film-Vector-Redesign-2014-Pixel-RedefinedIn a technical world layered with process, photography has become a digital impression rather than the authentic. Photos become disposable the moment we take them. Film Photography brings us back to a simple and genuine time. A pretty black box, a roll of film, a decision as to what light is best.

All that remains is the relationship between the photographer and the subject. I shoot in film over digital. I believe in making people feel great, while being themselves.

I am a happily married, film photographer based in Southern California. I love making people feel good about themselves, while still being themselves. My approach to shooting is directing people into natural and organic situations but making everyone’s time with me unique and different.

I’ve been featured in ShopRuche, Rustic Wedding Chic, Engaged and Inspired, as well as Trendy Bridal Magazine, to name a few.

Here is a clip of me and my Husband when we were engaged.
