Head Over Heels

Welcome to the brand-new-and-highly-(highly)-improved Melissa Oholendt Photography. This day might actually be the most exciting day to happen in my life so far. And yes, that means it trumps the day I was born, the day I got my drivers license and (just barely) the day I married Matt. It’s likely this could also be known as the project that has occupied every single piece of my brain and has been eating up all my sanity over the last 11 months but I could not be more thrilled to share and I could not be more proud of the results. I also really could not have done this alone.

My brilliant designer Taylor Pemberton is the genius behind the cohesive brand that I am so in-love with and became one of my closest (and definitely one of my most handsome) friends in the process.

Calligrapher Grace Edmands brought the gorgeous (gorgeous!!) calligraphy to life and even sent me a Christmas card (!!).

My absurdly talented web designer Phil Joncas built, coded and styled the crap out of my amazing website from the ground up and gave melissaoholendt.com the upgrade of a lifetime.

My stunning photo-bestie Gina Zeidler put me in front of her camera and somehow managed to get my best side from every side even despite my frequent attempts to look ridiculous.

And to every single person who has sent encouraging texts, emails, tweets, facebook messages and phone calls over the last 11 months? You made this happen. No lies. I owe you a macaron date (or five).

Heart this day times a million.

(That is a happy face, my friends. Photo by the effervescent Gina Zeidler.)
