Meet Our Team
We’re a creative team of professionals who are focused on growing the Sierra Wedding Industry, elevating professionalism, creating community, and becoming the top destination wedding location in California.
I’ve been a wedding photographer for 13 years and LOVE everything the Sierra Foothills has to offer for couples planning a wedding. I started the Sierra Wedding Guide in 2009 to showcase the rapidly growing Gold Country, a place I’ve coined as “The New Napa” because we have everything and more brides have come to love about California wine country weddings. Brides from all over the country plan destination weddings in our hometown, and I’m dedicated to ensuring they have the very best experience in our Sierra Wonderland.
I have over 20 years of experience in business management, sales and marketing, and fell in love with photography 5 years ago. Since then I’ve been photographing weddings with Melanie Soleil Photography, and am excited to be leading the Sierra Wedding Guide to new heights.
