Hi, I’m Melissa bordeau.


I’m based in Austin, Texas but I frequently travel around the state (and outside of it) for work as well! I'm passionate about capturing life's special moments and delivering high quality beautiful images for you to treasure.

I love to scout different locations, help people feel comfortable during their shoot, and give direction to make the most of our time together.

I’ve been a hired photographer for various portrait and engagement shoots, commercial/product photography, events and more.

I love variety, as you'll see in my work. I also love a challenge. I have worked with clients that are very shy in front of the camera, and my goal is to always make you feel comfortable and beautiful. Throughout our time together, I will show you the photos and we can make adjustments if needed.

When I work with you, it will be a very collaborative experience as I want to ensure you are getting what you want.

My main goal in photography is to express the beauty that I see in the world. Whether that be the chemistry between a couple, the genuine laughter between a mom and her daughter, the passionate look on a musician’s face, the gorgeous scenery I find on my travels, I aim to showcase that unique beauty through my photos.

Here’s a recent piece that showcases my work during SXSW 2019 for the Brooklyn Bowl Family Reunion party.

I really look forward to meeting and working with you!
